Many moons ago my wife and I stumbled upon Reginald & company at Portland comic con when the sweet aroma of fine leather called us from afar.
Our eyes spotted a long flowing dress with exquisite scale armour on one of their mannequins and without hesitation a choice was made…
My wife tried said dress on and was immediately transformed into the warrior Elf maiden she was born to be, with the help of Reginald’s expert accessory help.
While making adjustments and fitting, I personally perused the other garments and found a Ranger jerkin that I was immediately smitten with as it gave me an idea for a custom cosplay idea.
In what we both recall as a total blur we found ourselves fully decked out in what is arguably the most exquisite custom leather work we have ever had the privilege of wearing/owning, and so our relationship with Ravenswood began.
Since then we have acquired many more items to add to our collection including some custom 1 off items. Reginald is an artist of exceptional skill and passion and his work is easily recognizable. We have attended conventions where attendees have approached us and asked “Is that Ravenswood?…………THOUGHT SO”
I can’t praise Ravenswoods quality and craftsmanship enough as it truly is WEARABLE ART.
The “dress that started it all” is on display in our home when it’s not being worn because it’s shame to hide something this beautiful in a mere closet.
Reginald and his staff are joy to work with and it’s always a pleasure to see them whenever our paths cross.
Should you be fortunate enough to find their booth at a con or Ren Faire, I highly encourage you to stroll through their inventory and be swept away in imagination, you won’t be disappointed.
