“It’s just that only whores wear the knot in front,” Yuuri says, stepping in close to breathe in Viktor’s intoxicating scent before peering up at him through lowered lashes and affecting an accent he’s heard during one of his and Phichit’s ill-advised jaunts to Covent Garden. “Did you want me to be your whore, milord?”

oh MAN, this is done! I MADE IT!! For Days 2 & 3 of NSFW Victuuri Week. 

i like dressing in men’s clothes, it makes me feel more comfortable and confident because of where i’m at with gender right now, but man……….they’re boring

like they don’t have to be, there’s interesting choices, but it’s a lot harder to find interesting, inexpensive clothing in the men’s sections than it is in the women’s and it’s so frustrating, you almost have to venture into alternative fashion to find anything really interesting and that’s expensive

idk if it’s bc me aren’t expected by society to be as into clothes as women or if it’s just bc the range of “acceptable” mainstream masculine options is smaller or what but it’s v provoking 


My 60 Followers Gift!

Mostly kid’s stuff, but what did you expect from me? Here’s what you’ll be getting:

1. Amelie Montmarte’s Ribbons and Frills toddler dresses on a CF AAS mesh

2. Giasims and AAS textures on a Fakepeeps7 skirt mesh, 3 of which are bottom-only pinafores and jumpers.

3. Fakepeeps7 school dresses with maxis tights and boots instead of quarter-length leggings

4. Davina’s recolors of Sherahbim’s Assistant dress on Changeling’s TF mesh

5. Victorian shirts for kids in 2 flavors. This might strike a war according to moral high ground, but one clearly labeled set is for kids who have hit puberty, and one isn’t. Simple as that. If you don’t like it, don’t use it. I only included it because I myself hit puberty before the end of fourth grade in elementary school.

6. A set of clothes based on my character Essie’s outfit (check either my icon or my comic on my other account). Includes 3 shirts on Rented-Space’s mesh, and one bottom (mary-janes, socks, and short bloomers, not pictured) on Fig’s mesh. 

7. Fixed files of NathanialRoyale’s recolors of Eltanin’s dress. The sleeves originally bled over the white part, but the mild annoyance has been fixed. All credit to those two for this one.

6. AAS’s retro toddler christmas dress on the CF GLS mesh by Tiggerypum.

8. A mildly shitty photoskin of Alice Liddell’s London Dress for CF on Dicreasy’s alpha pinafore mesh.

9. Lastly, Skell’s shawl-apron combo recolors on the CF mesh by GodLimpingBy.

10. All meshes are included, including the CF hacked kids mesh (as it’s impossble to find) and Fakepeeps’s meshes (seeing as they’ve been offline since 2015 I think. If they contact me, I will remove them.)

Thank you all so much for following me <3 I hope you like your presents!

Some people pointed out that the Allura picture I made actually features regency clothing not victorian and these people are absolutely correct! 

I don’t know why I messed that up I made a bunch of referenced sketches that night and it got pretty late haha, so for the record:

This is victorian. Poofy skirts, layered butts and tight waist/top pieces


is regency/empire fashion. The high underboob skirt, often poofy shouldersleeves, flowy pretty nightgowns made casual 

End of PSA Sorry for being confusing! :)

iamthegps  asked:

I'm sure you've probably gotten this question before, but what is your least favorite era of fashion? Myself, I've never been fond of Regency Era clothing; empire waist makes everyone look pregnant. Like c'mon guys, your waistline and your bustline are supposed to be /different/.

I don’t think I’ve ever got a least favorite era! Most of the time it’s favorite era.

I think it would probably be the late 1820s-1830s? I feel like it’s one of those so bad it’s good eras. Like those sleeves should not be paired with that high waistline. 

I think a close runner up would be 17th century Spain aka the time that Spain decided to ignore what everyone else was doing and did it’s own thing

And it’s not just the ladies. 

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on menswear/men's fashion post-18th century? I personally think that it's been pretty stagnant, but I don't know much about menswear in general. I don't really read/hear people talk about it in (terms of historical dress) too much, so I might be completely wrong

Men’s Regency Fashion


The transition of men’s fashion from the 18th century to the early 19th century can best be described as the desire for a more casual and active look. At the end of the 18th century the politics of the established, as well as new, governments were becoming less rigid and embracing the ideas of Enlightenment and more reliance on the self. This emphasis on the self and intelligence inspired a Greek revival, which is why this era is referred to as Neoclassical. This revival influenced fashion as well as politics and popularized the “new natural style” of women’s dress modeled after Greek statutes. This also affected the way men’s clothing was cut and worn, making the fabric more form fitting in order to portray its beauty.

Many fashion historians attribute this era’s look to Beau Brummell, a young man close to the Prince of Wales. He drew his fashion sense from his time in the military and the less formal “riding” look. He was well known and considered one of the most handsomely dressed men in the country, which didn’t help his already inflated ego, or his image as a dandy. Men followed his lead and chose to transition their day wear from frock coats (which would take on another meaning in the years to come) and stockings to tailcoats and longer breeches that ended below the knee for a seamless look with the hessian or top boot.

As with a more casual look, wigs fell out of style, with the help of a 1795 powder tax, and the longer hair kept in a pigtail was abandoned for a cropped windblown look often helped with hair wax. Many of the hairstyles were named after notable Romans-Caesar, Titus, Brutus- as well as the angelic cherub.

The men’s evening look of this fashion era remained similar to the day look but with different footwear. Rather than sporting the popular boots of the day, men wore dress shoes with a low heel, some with buckles. Wearing heeled shoes also required the men to abandon their longer breeches for knee breeches and stockings. For the torso, the tailcoat was usually dark in color, navy being the most popular. These darker coasts covered white shirts and white waistcoats. A common accessory was the Chapeau-bras or bicorne which was carried under the arm. The use of wigs during the evening was usually one of personal preference and was more popular with older generations. 

For court dress, there is little difference between the late 18th c. and early 19th c. The frock coats with beautiful metallic embroidery and matching breeches took on darker jewel tones and white waistcoats were the standard dress for men at court. They continued to wear the shorter breeches with stockings and slippers and festooned themselves with wigs, which for the younger generation were only worn at court, swords on their hips, and the bicorne under their arms.

One accessory that was of great importance to men of this era no matter the time of day was the cravat or neck-cloth. A simple white cloth cravat became popular in regency fashion over the lace frills of the late 18th c. Our old friend Beau Brummell played an important role in popularizing the many looks of the cravat. It is said that he had the idea to have his neck-cloths starched in order to get a better knot and wear out of them. This also created a lot of work for his valet Robinson who would have to remove the piles of limp failures that did not meet Brummell’s standards.

In the next installment of men’s fashion in the 1800s, we’re going to talk a lot about pants so get ready!
