you know how back in the day men used to take women on dates where they would dance in a smoking bar with somebody singing songs on stage with a pianist, you know the type? i have such a first date fantasy of harry taking his girl out for a real romantic date like that and courting a girl like a real gentleman and dressing up in a suit, picking his girl up in his car and she’s all dolled up in a cocktail dress to go dancing, and he promises her father to bring her back for midnight and they get to show off their moves to each other when they play the jazz songs and at the end of the night, the singer slows it down to a real romantic song, and they dance so close together, arms wrapped around each other. and it’s cold outside at the end of the night so he gives her his jacket to to keep her warm and walks her to her door after the short drive back, standing outside the front door, knowing that her dad is probably waiting up, and kisses her cheek saying he’ll call her tomorrow and maybe they can do it again next saturday night and when they say goodbye and she shuts the door, she slides down the door with all the feels and can’t wait for his call. young love.
“Mr. Poirot achieved fame as a private investigator after he retired as a member of the Belgian police force in 1904. His career, as chronicled in the novels by Dame Agatha Christie, was one of the most illustrious in fiction.” - From Hercule Poirot’s obituary on the front page of The New York Times, Aug 6 1975
Here’s some awesome examples on how to dress like a gentleman. Also How useful checker vests are. You can mix them with plain suits and look like a gent. And you are saving a lot of money if you own just 2-3 plain suits and 2-3 vests that have checks on them.
Marc Warren looking magnificent as the gentleman with thistledown hair!
‘Someone was standing in the middle of the room: a tall, handsome person with pale, perfect skin and an immense amount of hair, as pale and shining as thistle-down. His cold, blue eyes glittered and he had long dark eye-brows, which terminated in an upward flourish. He was dressed exactly like any other gentleman, except that his coat was of the brightest green imaginable - the colour of leaves in early summer.’
“I might have seen you around.” Said the short one, not answering immediately.
Might have? It would be hard to miss someone like him. Even among monsters he stuck out like a sore thumb with how distorted his face was. Was it that which gave the illusion of having three eyes or was that the reality of his facial anatomy? And those talons! Those long, red claws he had for hands looked lethal.
This was all but common for Sally. For the first time in a long time, she was- dare she admit it? Intimidated, cautious, afraid. This man dressed like a gentleman and the poltergeist found herself hoping he acted like one too.

There is 0 fourth wall. It stays true to the comics. Ryan Reynolds was made for this role. Strong female characters who are actually strong are featured and the two female superheroes in the film, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Angel Dust are actually dressed in sensible combat clothing, not dressed like female characters in an rpg. Colossus is such a gentleman and a dad, it’s wonderful. He’s the superpowered cinnamon roll of the film while Dopinder (the cab driver) was the regular cinnamon roll of the film. Blind Al is fucking awesome. Stan Lee’s cameo was perfect.
A+ casting all around.
I ship Colossus and Angel Dust now… I saw them, said “Sign me the fuck up.”, and left the theater in a trashcan.
Duchess is probably my favorite doll, hands down. (Sorry Cupid and Maddie D: ) Everyone always likes to dress her as the black swan, so I stayed more white and grey with her feathery outfit. And there is zero logic behind Alistair showing up other than the fact that he’s dressed like a gentleman and looks awesome with Duchess (And Duchess stole his stand so she can stand on my shelf and not have her tule/feather skirt trashed).
*Accedentially ships my Glass Scientist sona with my shitty oc.*
I definitely feel like if Laura met Rhiannon she fucking have a big dorky crush of her. Like she’d be amazed at this woman like who is she?? Why does she dress like a gentleman?? Why is she flirting with me idk what do???
phil lester. the most stubborn the most child-like the most underrated the clumsiest but born with the purest heart ‘people-person’ ive ever known. he might be not everyone’s cup of tea, but honey . you and i know, he drinks coffee.
fuck those standards of how to behave, how your contents should be like, how to dress like a gentleman.
he knows how to be sassy without hurting anybody. really a beautiful diamond in the rough, one of a kind.
So I have this headcanon that the reason Eddie knows old songs and dresses/acts like an old timey gentleman is because as a little kid he took refuge in old black and white movies, both silent and sound. The kid was just enamored with Old Hollywood glamour, the way the actors just seemed untouchable, glowing. In those movies good people actually treated one another with decency and bad people got their just desserts. So he watched those old movies and had an encyclopedic knowledge of classical film and eventually old music got roped into that. And that glamorous, perfect world is where his mind retreats again and again.
