Steamy Finds: Renaissance Fashions

Here are pictures of more "steamy" items we found while at the Ohio Renaissance Festival.  These are from Renaissance Fashions.  The Ren Fest is still going on.  So, you still have time to find some "steamy" items of your own.

The pictures don't do these items justice.  The skirt has several layers and great detailing.  The corset is an incredible teal blue with black.  This is a "sweetheart" style of corset.  Very flattering!
