Raiding the Met for Victorian Goth Clothing

I have a love/hate relationship with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. On the one hand, I'm very picky about museum ethics and on the other hand they simply have the best stuff. Still, since you're all here for the fashion and not for my feelings about collecting practices (unless you are here for that, in which case I direct you to my art blog), today I thought I would show you all some of the great Victorian Goth-appropriate clothing to be found in the Met archives.

If you'd like to look more at the Met, their website is here and you can search their collection online here. Here's a fun challenge: If you could get any article of clothing from the Met archives without worrying about sizing, deterioration, etc., which one would you want?
