Just a Pretty Bird

"an obsession with historical fashion needs an outlet."

A collection of fashion that I found fabulous, with a little bit of crazy mixed in.
Got a question? Shoot!

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

My Scarlet Witch cosplay at Motor City Comic Con 2014.

 I’m quite proud of the jacket and the head piece.  Everything was made my me from the gloves to the pants, spats (I used spats to create the same line down to the shoes) and covered a pair of character shoes to match.  As a nod to the original, I lined the inside with bright pink taffeta.   

the pack survives.

Pedro Pascal Explains the Ecstasy of Oberyn Martell - Making Game of Thrones

HBO:
In a previous episode, Oberyn is writing a poem for his daughter. Have you thought through his life in Dorne?
Pedro Pascal:
I see him as an extremely contemporary, progressive and loving father. I think it's so suitable that he had nothing but daughters to raise. He doesn't shape ideas based on old conventions so his daughters are not limited by backwards, medieval morality.
HBO:
He's very emotionally intelligent.
Pedro Pascal:
I think there's a depth in the way that Oberyn perceives the world and the way he lives in it. I think there's a lot of woman inside of Oberyn, which attributes to his strength.
HBO:
Can you explain what you mean by "a lot of woman"?
Pedro Pascal:
Perceptiveness. Intelligence. In the world of 'Game of Thrones,' which can harshly reflect some of the darker elements of our reality, I would argue that women are often forced to be smarter and more in touch with themselves because their circumstances are so ruled by men. Women's survival skills kick in a bit earlier.
HBO:
Would you say that Oberyn is a feminist?
Pedro Pascal:
Absolutely. Without choosing to be. It's just intrinsic and logical to him. Ellaria Sand is the love of his life because she is his equal, if not his superior, in certain ways. That's part of what makes him such a fierce man because he knows who to take his lead from.
