Grables'Daughter: 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.


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.

Wait a farkin minute. What is up with this gal's left forearm?
Artificial?
Doesn;t even look like a hand clutching the handbag strap.


It is a paper sleeve. People who worked as clerks, secretaries, etc. wore them to protect their clothing from the ink that might not be completely dry. I'm guessing this young lady is on a lunch break

Some of the ladies looked quite nice.

But for things to really take off, we need to fast forward, though not so far as the '50s.

quickdraw: 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.


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.

johneee: It's the same issue that makes people think that all the clothing was muted, faded, and kind of brown, because when you look at material that's been around for 100 years, it fades and browns. No, the world was not entirely sepia-toned at the time.

Jim_Callahan: Now I Is!:
/Also why goth is a misnomer
//Not that changing terms now would cause anything but confusion

I'm under the impression that Goth as applied to the music and the fashion movement was referring to Gothic fiction (popular in the 1950s, etc), not the Goths as in the old Germanic tribe. In which case overwrought costumes with loads of unnecessary accoutrements and an incredibly affected air of misery (or whatever) along with excessive makeup actually seems, y'know, pretty appropriate. Gothic horror is to horror what a book of puns about farting is to comedy, sort of the teen lit version of the genre. Same with Gothic romance.


Umm, no. Gothic horror is the progenitor of all horror, unless you consider Poe, Lovecraft, Byron, Shelley and Stoker to be the equivalent of fart jokes. in fact it tends to be the more sophisticated end of it compared to more modern horro. Now, if you want to talk about Goth horror, like Poppy Z Brite et al, you may be on to something.

Goth as a dress code harks back to victorian and other types of dress, mixed in with 80s punk and new romantic. And if you think goths are all miserable (or affecting misery), you've never been to a goth picnic... Goth is pretty much a big game of dress-up (or dress-up-and-get-wasted) that, yes, a few people take far too seriously. Or that's how it was in the UK when last I looked.

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.

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.

ladyfortuna: 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 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!

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.
