I enjoy many, many things, but here are just a few: comics (mostly Marvel), books, music, cracky humor, various fandoms and the dark shit that gets written within them (one day I'll make a list), all things that are shippable and maybe some that aren't, and aesthetically pleasing people, places, ideas, etc. I'm also double concentrating in IR and Gen-Sex/Women's Studies (with lots of Black Studies thrown into the mix sometimes?) so expect lots of that as well.
Hope you have a wonderful day/night, and come talk to me whenever. I'm a pretty open person.
What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I need this to be a thing that is actual.
Reblogging for commentary that is first, good history information and then, hilarious.
