Burnham: Southminster family dress up as Victorians
When Chris Rowlands was invited to dress up in Victorian outfits when he was a bored teenager, never did he imagine that the unusual hobby would stick.
But ten years and ten thousand pounds later, the 24-year-old, of North Street, Southminster, has never looked back.
Former St Peter’s High School pupil Mr Rowlands, who was persuaded by his aunt to try out the Victorian garb when he was around 14, now owns three uniforms which can be transformed into 20 different military outfits.
The railway track worker even got married to his wife Megan - who he met at a Victorian festival in Wales in 2011 - in the traditional clothing with the majority of guests looking like they had stepped out of 1800’s.
He said: “I was sitting at home bored and my aunt said why don’t you come along to a Victorian festival."
