    • The part where she said its a symbol of repression tho, you took it out of context:(( she said "it is a symbol of repression to those WHO ARE FORCED to wear it" and then continues on by saying how she chooses to wear it and how it helps with her stuffing her money in the corset(which someone said that in the books, she put more things and how the corset was a useful thing) they prolly only put the money to symbolize the scenes in the book

    • Except they messed up the timeline of the costumes💩🤣but IM STILL GONNA LOVE THAT FILM AND THERE AINT ANYONE STOPPING ME HAHAHA

    • And the question is , Why does it always has to be historically accurate? At the end of the day is not a documentary. it's just a fictional story. inaccuracies are repeated in many movies. That means the people behind the screen has asked themselves that question and they have gotten to the conclusion that its not a priority for the industry, cause many of those movies with inaccuracies have won prizes for their job. Even Oscars. So...

    • @Nicole Stanhope The movie is not set in 1900, even though the Movie showed 1884 at the the beginning of the movie, making it seem she was born that year which might made it confusing. If you look closely at the newspaper Enola was reading about the reform bill when she was at the finishing school you will notice the date 1884 put at the top of the newspaper. Also in 1884 there was a reform bill singed called the Representation of the People Act, which also made me think it was in 1884. If you look up when the movie is set, most sources say it’s set in 1884, including the one yeeaahhzz posted

  • I believe the movie is set in 1890's/1900 because at the beginning of the movie, when Enola explains "I was named Enola" bla bla bla, a piece of paper is shown where you can read 1884 (Implying -I believe- that she was born that year). Since the events happen right after she turns 16, It should be the year 1900. So... that's that. I love your reviews :D

  • The stiffly shaped dress for the headmaster makes sense for the character since it reflects her overall stiffness. It may be in the wrong century but filmography wise the choice makes perfect sense. Imagine the stiff old lady in a curvy dress The red dress looks like something the prostitutes from that party island in Pirates of the Caribbean would wear lmao

  • I imagine many of the costumes - not on the main characters necessarily - but others- are from costume rental houses. I worked on Hollywood feature films for years - in the art department and used to cringe when these types of videos would come out. We always did the best we could with the money and time we had to create everything... not to mention the influence of the production designer, director and producers. So go easy on the wardrobe department here... and save all of your criticism for Bridgerton... and show no mercy... Lol....

  • I was very confused mainly because the whole "militant" feminist with the use of miniature bombs occured after around 1900. So I was kinda expecting the clothes to be Edwardian. But then Enola wore that red dress which screamed 19th century (1890s at best) with a neckline that would have at most be appropriate for a woman of age at evening party. That was confusing. Then, the style of the widows weeds was not common in Edwardian times really unless perhaps it was worn by a very old widow. And then Enola wears those loose simple clothes which were definitely Edwardian Middle Class. And I was like. OMG what time period is this happening 1900s or 1890s? I kinda like Helena Carter's outfit and especially her loose hair. It was more historically ambiguous as opposed to historically incorrect. The looseness kinda represents her liberal ideas.

  • If the costumes sometimes go around 1880- an 1830 costume on an old lady might not be too bad. One thing I really loved from Mad Men was how they were good about what was in fashion- but not every character was wearing the fashionable thing. Some people had slightly older out of date clothes because they were poor and people who were older or more old fashioned might be favoring styles that looked more like what was in style maybe 10 years ago in their heyday. Look at how many moms spent years trying to get their daughters to buy those really ugly heavy duty round bras- because they were the closet thing to the bullet bras that had been popular when they were young

  • I was a fan of the books as a child, and elaborate descriptions of clothing were actually a HUGE part of the series. Enola was meant to be a distinctly feminine detective who solved mysteries in distinctively feminine ways by using her knowlege of the language of flowers, the language of fans, her knowledge of clothing, etc. (as opposed to perpetual bachelor Sherlock). I don't know if this is historically accurate or not, but she makes a distinction between something she calls "tight-lacing" (and something called a spoon corset?) which is painful and oppresive and her regular corset which she uses to hold up her dress(bust enhancer, hip regulator), change people's impression of her age(through modifying her silhouette), and containing her rope/money/knives. Her corset even saves her from a garroting (because of a high collar). Enola actually does a lot to establish her various disguises, using false curls, broaches, certain fabrics and cuts, etc. I don't know the exact historical accuracy of the books, but clothing really was an essential piece of the story that I'm sad they didn't get quite right for the movies. Spoilers: There's actually a whole book centered around an old, oddly embroidered crinoline that was used to carry secret messages in the embroidery (during the Crimean war, I believe) and Enola knows that one of her friends is in trouble because she's wearing a sort of new restrictive bell-shaped skirt that doesn't fit with her personality at all. She also talks about clothing in relation to her mother(who was a feminist) and how bicycles and "walking dresses" allowed women more freedom of choice in their apparel.

  • I'm really new to this side of youtube, and it's very interesting to hear a formalist's view on how fashion in movies should be. I think it would serve you well though to have someone who is thinking more based on thematics as a choice for character design. If you can find a character concept artist to be in dialogue with, I think you could have some pretty interesting discussions, and come up with some interesting solutions to the problems the movies create. The specific character I'm thinking is the head mistress, you say you're confused about her silhouette because it's too straight and not curvy enough, but I can guess a character designer would pick that, as it shows her metaphorical rigidness in perspective. She isn't flexible like Enola or her mother, instead she has a very rigid way of thinking about the world. Anyways, I think if you find a character designer to bounce ideas off with, I think you could have some very interesting dialogue!

    John GottschalkJohn GottschalkԱմիս առաջ
    • I guess what I mean is cocept artists often use shape to specifically distinguish characters from background characters. So the easiest way would be to draw from different eras, rather than putting them all in the same shapes.
