kidakita: 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.


Agreed. Also, here is an excellent video taken just prior to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake - A [Ewardian fashion] Trip Down Market Street (pops)

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.

I adore the Victorian fashions as well, and am learning to appreciate the Edwardian style too. The patterns are fascinating. Had to do some research on home interiors, as my house was built in the 1890's--LOVE!

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.

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.


The fashions, although lovely, wear a form of slavery. The corsets were awful of course and caused illness and death. But almost as horrific is the sheer woman hours it took to launder all those clothes. Clothes you wore year round no matter how hot it got. Womens liberation truly began once we had washing machines.

Jesus, I have a hard enough time now trying to decide what to wear. I can't imagine how long it took these women to get dressed in the morning. Corset, petticoats, hoop skirts, layer upon layer of wool, lace, etc. The effing hats. I can't get a hat to stay on my head, and I really don't look that great in them.

/still kinda jelly

Ugh, never was there a decade with worse taste in women and style than the 1940s, and I'm including the 70s. I'll take the suffragette look any day of the week.

But farkers told me that it was only recently that any men thought someone with less than two chins was attractive; that all the old timey ladies were plump fatties.

That's the point of balls/events like this (at least the ones I've been to) - take fashion from a particular era such as Edwardian, Victorian, etc and use it as a basis to re-imagine it as something new. eg steampunk, etc.

Those pics are of middle-class women. At that time "middle-class" had the fairly specific meaning of families rich enough to afford servants to do the house work (and laundry) - proper wives did not physically labor.

Urinal Cake Mix: Jesus, I have a hard enough time now trying to decide what to wear. I can't imagine how long it took these women to get dressed in the morning. Corset, petticoats, hoop skirts, layer upon layer of wool, lace, etc.


Considering that the women were middle class and didn't have anything to do they could spend lots of time dressing. Also many had servants to help them dress. You can find a bunch of fashions (such as dresses that button up the back) that are made to tell the world that they can only be worn by someone who has a servant to help them put on their clothes.
 
2012-07-16 01:36:54 AM  
I don't like that. Looks like they spent too much time with their clothes instead of what was underneath. This was pre-antibiotics tho.

geekbikerskum: BodaciousTease: Have you worn a properly fitted corset?

Most definitely. There's also the fact that a corset's main purpose was to provide support and a firm foundation for all those clothes (the steels keep the waistbands from all the skirts and petticoats from digging into the waist and hips). It was NOT to provide the smallest waist you could tug your laces into. A corset that fits well is only going to apply pressure to the squishy part of the waist, not your ribcage. Now, a modern woman will find a corset "restrictive" in that she can't bend at the waist like she's used to.

Have you read Devil in the White City? Great read.

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.


Came here to say the exact same thing. Creepy creepy story.

The birth control thing would've been possible, but tricky...the real problem was ignorance, since things like the sponge and IUD predate Christianity, but get made illegal and are NOT discussed. Not sure when condoms came in, but at that point you're still talking sheep intestine I think...

Corsets, at times, have had the goal of making the waist as tiny as possible (they called it a wasp waist) and it did create health issues and sometimes death.

But by the time the the late 1800s, and very early 1900s came about that was out of fashion.
