Unseelie Court Fashion and Aesthetic



  The Unseelie Court is very traditional and has maintain their decorative style and court dress relatively the same for hundreds of years–however, there is a wide variety of choices despite everything remaining the same so you can have a whole ballroom of Unseelie fae and everyone dressed in a variety of fashions. The style and aesthetics of the Unseelie Court are based on the medieval ages from 500 A.D. to 1500 A.D., a thousand years of medieval fashion history. However, just because it remains the same does not mean that it’s not influential or beautiful–some of the most intricate and beautiful gowns, buildings, and styles seen in the Elphyne Realm can be found within the area of the Unseelie Court.   They also inspired a fashion trend within Gorduno. Gorduno was going through a Regency-type aesthetic when the Veil was opened up and nobles travelled back and forth through the Unseelie Court. Thanks to the Gorduno prince and princess taking up Unseelie Court fashions in honor of his future wife-to-be, despite her displeasure as this arranged marriage, there has been a sweeping fashion change towards matching the Unseelie court styles–with their own Gordunonian twists, of course.
