Each of the three all white, promenading outfits in this collection has been designed to glow in the dark, with extra shadow detailing not visible in day-light. Each has accompanying audio in the form of an extract of a Regency broadside ballad. Broadside ballads are best put into the category of street songs, which were very popular during the Regency and Victorian eras.
