I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I was lucky enough to commission zenwisterias/taylordrawsto draw two of my OCs, Kyna and Brandon! I also can’t believe I got too awkward to actually thank her properly??? They’re amazing and I love them, thank you so so much!!!
I’ve been writing and developing these guys on and off for around six years now, so it’s incredible to be able to see them somewhere other than inside my brain. Thank you sooo much Tayor!!!
Now I just have to wait for her to open them again so I can commission the other three OCs in this team ;)
HNNNNGGNNGnggngn DONT DO THIS TO ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fuck fuck fuck fuc k FUCK THIS IS LIKE CHOOSING A FAVORITE CHILD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ok SHIT ive narrowed it down to my top 5 and i do have a #1 favorite but i wouldnt feel right not mentioning the runner ups so:
AURORA’S TOP 5 PERIOD MOVIE DRESSES (IN ASCENDING ORDER):
5. Juliet’s blue dress from Romeo and Juliet (2013)
this dress… is so fucking beautiful when i saw it for the first time in the theater i straight up gaSPED. i love the stars and the sky motif, and the shades of blue are SO stunning. its not super accurate as far as 16th c italian dresses go bUT it is so beautiful i literally dont care. and its not horribly inaccurate the underbust cut, the sleeves – those are all legit.
this dress also caused me to look away from douglas booth’s perfect face for like 5 seconds at least which is a huge feat
4. Snow White’s pink and yellow dress from Mirror Mirror (2012)
this isnt techincally a period costume because the period it comes from is like… fairy tale but i .. do not care sorry. every. single. costume in this movie blows my MIND. they are the work of the genius eiko ishioka and they are S T U N N I N G. this is actually one of the more tame costumes of the movie but its my fave bc it is so lovely and beautiful and is totally perfect with Snow’s character in the film.
the cape itself is FJFJFHEIGHEIGHIEGHIE !!! i have NO WORDS YALL. and the dress under it is so whimsical and lovely and i lovE IT
the use of applique on the skirt and the bodice to add 3D to the pattern… the color scheme… the use of organza for the sleeves… these are things i would never think of to combine but they work SO WELL
3. Cecelia’s green dress from Atonement (2007)
THIS DRESS MAKES ME SCREAM OUT LOUD OH MY GOD. like. okay. okay. [clenches fist]. this dress is fucking REVOLUTIONARY. like in the story this dress is Very Important and it fucking KILLS IT LIKE. iconic. i c o n i c. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the bias cut 1930s dress is one of my favorite styles of dress of all time (and it pains me so much because this style of dress would look terrible on my body type) and the emerald green… the ruching at the back …. i died every day waiting for this dress…
2. Edith’s yellow dress from Crimson Peak (2016)
ok real talk when i saw this in the theater i like inhaled too much of my icee and like almost died BECAUSE OF !!! THIS !! FUCKING !! DRESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the construction of this dress is fukcing INSANE and i fucking love the 1890s sooo much and this dress is the DRESS OF MY DREAMS like THE UFKCING POOFY SLEEVES…. WITH THE CREEPY FLOWER EMBROIDERY … THE DRAMATIC BLACK BOW… THE WAISTBAND … THE BELL SHAPED SKIRT….THE GOLDEN COLOR…. WHAT A FUCKING LOOK
look at the front i truly cannot.. i gotta go take a walk or something this dress is Too Much
#1 Cinderella’s blue ballgown from Cinderella (2015)
okay. let me tell u something. listen to me. this dress straight affected me on a deep soul-level. like. the moment i saw this dress in the first cinderella trailer i was like …. Nothing Was The Same. this dress honestly changed my life???? and it inspired me to sew so much more because it is straight up the most beautiful thing ive ever seen. before the movie came out i was obsessed w this dress and i looked up every interview w sandy powell ab it and after i looked at all the cosplays of it. also my life like started to get better around the time after i saw this movie???? coincideNCE ??? I THINK NAUGH T !!!!
this dress is my phone lock screen its also the background of my desktop. this is like. My Dress u know it is just the best thing ive ever seen i could stare at it forever. did u know there is more than 12 layers of differently colored organza that make up the skirt?? and under that there is a petticoat and a crinoline cage??????
the design of it is just. brilliant. the fact that sandy powell started w the idea of cinderella running away from the ball and the movement of the dress is SO great and pays of big time on screen. this is a phenomenon that cannot be expressed thru pictures so please watch this video and feel calm in ur soul and also appreciate the Best Scene In Cinema History
thank u for caring ab my opinion ab dresses and i hope u enjoyed hearing me yell ab dresses i truly love period dresses so much
