Located in Austin, Texas The Violet Vixen "provides showgirls, burlesque dancers, fashionistas, steampunkers, goth lovers and aspiring starlets with flavor rich corsets just for fun or daily wear." The website isn't limited to corsets but also sells shoes, waist trainers, clothing for men and more. The Violet Vixen ships throughout the U.S. and Internationally. This review is for their Black Rose Corset Dress. Currently priced at $134.00 the dress is made to order in 12-16 business days. A corset liner for increased comfort can be added for an additional $15. The dress is also available in a brown corset, white and red. A listing for the item to order can be found HERE. After selecting this stunning dress for review, it was time to do something creative with it. After being asked to be a part of a Punk X-Men cosplay group for Dragoncon 2015, I decided to use the Black Rose dress for Punk Rogue. Additions to creating this look include a wig from ebay, gloves from a local party store, fishnets and black boots. For my makeup, I watched the following tutorial on You Tube which can be found HERE.

The dress is absolutely gorgeous with first class craftsmanship. This particular design is versatile and can be used for styles in steampunk and goth. The dress can be used for costuming or a night on the town. The possibilities really are quite endless. The Black Rose corset dress from The Violet Vixen gets two thumbs up from the Confessions of a Cosplay Girl Blog.
