Never mind! Here’s another (though given her gown, I suppose she doesn’t get into this until she lands in New Pacifica. lol)
Elliot North- For Darkness Shows the Stars
“The old poems said that lovers were made for each other. But that wasn’t true for Kai and Elliot. They hadn’t been made for each other at all—quite the opposite. But they’d grown together, the two of them, until they were like two trees from a single trunk, stronger together than either could have been alone.”
― Diana Peterfreund, For Darkness Shows the Stars
I could so see Felicia Innovation in something like this.
This is very interesting!
This is the description of the first costume: Emile Pingat (1820–1901), Paris, Skirt and polonaise, 1885. Velvet, beads, silk, glass. Collection of Shelburne Museum. 2010-75
Emile Pingat has taken a page from the 18th century, adapting a classical men’s court ensemble and feminizing it. Instead of breeches that match the coat, there is a long velvet skirt finished with a ruffle. The apparent waistcoat is not a separate garment but instead is constructed as two decorative panels set into the coat. Pingat has updated the style and beauty of aristocratic men’s clothing by adding the small pointed zigzag motif in the embroidery. This one-of-a-kind colonial revival style dress would have been worn to a ball or masquerade with appropriate accessories that could have included a wig, fan, and shoes.
I spent the last thirty minute looking for a similiar photo! ”The 18th Century Back in Fashion” exhibit, Palace of Versailles. Victorian take on 18th century dress.
