strange

anonymous asked:

do you think its strange that some dressing gowns are made of fabric with very modern looking designs? for example some have animal print like stripes or spots, from the few pictures of dressing gowns from the 19th century ive been able to find online most have a floral pattern if any at all...

I’m not sure I agree with you. The turn-of-the-century/Belle Epoque/early 20th century dressing gowns and tea gowns were often very delicate, fluffy, white, lace decorated, and extremely feminine. Like this example here.

But the Victorian ones? Not so much! They were fond of bright colours, lots of decorations, and often with fabrics or cuts showing they knew the world - inspiration from Japanese kimonos and Chinese Mandarin robes were particularly popular, but also Indian inspired paisleys. There’s furthermore versions pretty much looking like something Scarlett O’Hara would have made, with “curtain” fabrics and tassels. These were often inspired by historical garments, of 18th century sack back gowns and justaucorps jackets, or of the pelisse coats of the Regency era.

Some of these can just as well be used as “tea gowns”, informal robes that weren’t quite dressing gowns but they weren’t for outdoor wear either. They were formal enough to receive visitors in, at least if the visitor was a friend, but they were soft and informal.

But point is, the white dressing gown Christine wears in the stage show is more Belle Epoque/Edwardian than Victorian. It’s not impossible to find something similar from the 1870s and 1880s, not at all. But TYPICAL Victorian dressing gowns and tea gowns were colourful, even noisy by today’s standard. And by this standard I don’t think the various patterns seen in Christine’s dressing gowns is particularly out of place. The only one I’m not crazy fond of is the West End “zebra” look they did for a while, I’m sure there is a Victorian example of something similar somewhere. NOTHING surprise me about historical clothing after I saw this elegant 1768 gentleman’s attire:

YES THAT IS TOTALLY LEOPARD BREECHES!

“You like my singing? Is that why you came way out here on that little boat?” ((helllllll yes))

“Yes… I had to know if you were what I thought you were.” Niles leaned down over the edge of the small sailing boat that he’d managed to get his hands on, looking down into the dark water at the strange, pink-haired creature resting amidst the waves. “You’re even more lovely than I pictured.”

The weather in Brighton today is such a strange mix! It looks very grey and autumnal outside but is very warm… so my #outfitoftheday is a summer dress 👗

Bobbi Kristina's death: Father says strange things will come out if 'criminal charges' filed against Nick Gordon

Singer/songwriter Bobby Brown has opened up on a ruling against Nick Gordon in a lawsuit intended to establish who was legally responsible for the tragic death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina in 2015. As Gordon failed to appear in court twice in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Brown’s estate, he lost it by default.

The 47-year-old, in an interview with pastor TD Jakes [via People] said that Gordon being legally responsible for his daughter’s death has given him “a bit of calmness”.

Brown added, “I don’t know the specifics of what happened, but as the judge has said, he is legally responsible. I know some things that happened to my daughter, but it’s up to the D.A. now to do his job.”

Although Gordon has never been criminally charged in Bobbi’s death, Brown is hopeful and waiting for the DA to do so. He said, “Until then, just knowing that he’s legally responsible for my daughter’s death has given me a bit of calmness to waiting for that DA. There’s a lot of strange things that will come out in the criminal charges against Nick.”

The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found face-down in a bathtub on 31 January in 2015 at the Atlanta home she shared with Gordon. She died in July after being in coma for six months.

The American R&B singer stressed, “My daughter was afraid of tubs because of what happened to her mom. So I know she wouldn’t have gotten in the tub. I mean it’s crazy because the tub wasn’t even full of water. It had a dustpan in it, in the bottom of the tub.”

Dudas existenciales de madrugada

Hace poco el chico que me gusta me comentó que iría a ver la película de Doctor Strange.
Yo quiero ir a verla también porque me gusta Marvel, al menos sus películas que son lo que más conozco.
Me gustaría pedirle que fuéramos juntos y con suerte más amigos se nos unieran. Pero la verdad no me siento con la fuerza o la determinación para pedírselo.
El ya sabe que me gusta y la verdad no es que lo quiera presionar para que salga conmigo o algo así, sólo quiero pasar un rato con el viendo algo que a los dos nos gusta.
A veces odio ser tan indecisa pero creo que los rasgos que se desarrollaron en mi después del 2° año de preparatoria llegaron para quedarse. Es molesto :T

Happy Tuesday! #viewfrommyroof This is so strange: while I was in the shower somebody dumped 2 bags of tools outside my front door & disappeared. They could be metalworking tools, but I’m not sure. Am trying to call the guy but he isn’t picking up ….. Will stick around the house & maybe he’ll reappear #Sept2016 #lambisstory #myios2016 #ioslife #iosisland2016 #lambsios #iosgreece2016 #tumblr #livingonios #homebdarock #iosvillage (at Lambi’s Studio)

Jennifer Lawrence y Chris Pratt se hacen presentes en estos nuevos vistazos para este romance de ciencia ficción, dirigido por Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Headhunters)

Sony Pictures sabe que tiene potencial entre manos con “Passengers”, que días atrás presentó un prometedor adelanto. El estudio no tiene planes de que este buen impulso se extinga antes de su llegada a los cines, con lo que dio a conocer dos nuevas fotografías que ponen el foco en sus protagonistas Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: Apocalypse) y Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, Headhunters) es el director de esta película, la cual completa su elenco con Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon, Midnight in Paris), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Aurora Perrineau (Jem and the Holograms) y Andy Garcia (The Untouchables), entre otros. Con guión de Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour, Prometheu, Doctor Strange), tiene su lanzamiento previsto para el 21 de diciembre de este 2016.

En un viaje de rutina a través del espacio hacia un nuevo hogar, dos pasajeros, durmiendo en animación suspendida, son despertados 90 años demasiado pronto cuando su nave tiene un mal funcionamiento. Mientras que Jim y Aurora enfrentan vivir el resto de sus vidas a bordo, con más lujo del que podrían haber pedido, empiezan a enamorarse uno del otro, incapaces de negar su intensa atracción… hasta que descubren que su nave está en un grave peligro. Con las vidas de 5 mil pasajeros durmientes en riesgo, solo Jim y Aurora pueden salvarlos a todos.

“Out Of My League”

it’s her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that i’m falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way
all the times i have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
and she purses her lips, bats her eyes as she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say
coz i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
coz she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
and i’m out of my league once again

it’s a masterful melody when she calls out my name to me
as the world spins around her she laughs, rolls her eyes
and i feel like i’m falling but it’s no surprise
coz i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause it’s frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
but i’d rather be here than on land
yes she’s all that i see and she’s all that i need
and i’m out of my league once again

it’s her hair and her eyes today

It’s coming up to six months since you left. 2 days to be exact. These past six months have been so strange. I have experienced pain worse than any I have felt before. I spent what felt like a life time feeling sick all the time, barely being able to breathe, eat or drink. I forgot all basic human functions. Everything stopped. Then, the healing began. I think I’m stronger now. I lost a lot, but I also gained a lot. I’m thankful for the people that have been there. The ones who listened when I could barely talk through the tears. The one who picked me up of the bathroom floor of a bar when I couldn’t bring myself to stand. The one who has helped me forget how bad it hurts inside.
