As did I.

Thankfully, Mr. Kellogg's Corn Flakes and yogurt enemas kept me from touching myself in an impure manner.

I would have liked to have lived in that era.

My hobby is The World's Columbian Exposition - the World's fair of Chicago in 1893.

I love the fashions... everything from that era. I am fascinated by it.

Do you do steampunk cosplay? I have a couple of friends who are super into it. I'm not, but I am into watches and I recently saw this. (pops) I needed to stop myself from buying it.

Nope, I just read all I can about that fair and collect items from it.

Yes, of course I have.

I have actually read every book available about the fair, and have quite a collection of items from it.

Some pretty significant ones, actually.

Ah, I see. I didn't know you were a collector. I just randomly picked up the book, but the whole story of the fair was fascinating.

The clothes are nice and the era has a romantic feel to it but:

1) No antibiotics
2) No birth control
3) No or little indoor plumbing
4) No cars (horse shiat everywhere)
5) Women didn't have equal rights.

I think I'd pass living there. I wouldn't mind if the fashions came back around but...no.

That is one head covering short of a burka. Must be very hot in the late fall.

2012-07-16 12:26:21 AM
And my first thought was "Thank GOD women don't have to dress like that anymore".

Some of you ladies may enjoy skirts and even the more complicated clothes like they're wearing, but I am grateful we finally can wear pants all the time without being hassled about it. Also I'ma let you finish, but cargo pants are the best pants of all time. Of ALL TIME.

I actually think the to-be-produced film about Mudgett could be pretty awesome, but probably they'll hollywood it up and have Jude Law star.

Dude made Jack the Ripper look like a rank amateur.

Yeah, thank God we've progressed to an era of scowling, tattooed land cows wearing tank tops. Now that's liberation!

The first half isn't quite accurate, though the last half is. Cars were commercialized by the start this time period, though restricted to a small aprt of society, and the latter part of it would coincide with cars becoming much more accessible and the introduction of the Model T.

I was just thinking I this week how wonderful it is to be able to wear dresses. So much more comfortable than pants and cheaper too.

I love being a girl!

One thing outstanding in those photos was how much hats were a social signifier - that you could tell the class of a person by just looking at their hat.

No proper person would dare go outside without a hat because they might be mistaken for a poor person who couldn't afford a badge to indicate that they were not poor.

One of my hobbies is interactive fiction. One of the more interesting games to come out in the last few years was set at the Exposition. You should check it out:

avratt: Looks like the European version of burkas


Yes: apart from the fact of not covering every part of your body and face except for your eyes, European women's dresses from 100 years ago are exactly like burkas, the defining feature of which is that they cover every part of the body except for the eyes. These two unlike things are entirely similar.

No matter, I'm sure there's some other white liberal douchebag out there who can explain why modest dress among Western women is pretty much the same as being veiled head to toe -- not that there's anything wrong with being veiled head to toe, you Islamaphobic racist, since it frees Muslim women from the patriarchal consumerist male gaze (except of course that the same liberal douchebag likes to laugh about modest dress on Western women: what are they, Amish? Mormon? or who gives a f*ck, really, as long as we know that because they are white and will vote for Romney and we can safely mock them.) Basically all you really need to know is that if you're being modest for God, you're a reactionary fundamentalist idiot, but if you're being modest for Allah, you're a vital part of our nation's diversity. Or something like that.

Also just to be clear: I didn't write that game and have nothing to do with it. I just enjoy letting people know about good IF games.

(For example, if you haven't played Violet you're missing the best one-room adventure...ever.)
 
2012-07-16 12:48:59 AM
Grables'Daughter: If you like the clothes from that era, you should check out some of the photographs from the 1906 SF earthquake & fire. It's almost surreal seeing people dressed like that viewing smoking ruins.

Makes me glad to be part of a modern era that includes chicks in yoga pants.
 
2012-07-16 12:49:32 AM
I downloaded some vintage blue movies from not too long after the oughts (a temporary fascination). Some of the lesbian stuff is actually adorable. Like two puppies playing. The rest is just proof that there's absolutely nothing new under the sun.

#1 and #9 have a very modern look about them. Transcend time, they do.

Plus, I like the cut of their jibs.

In 1900 women actually wore jibs.
