i'm so sick of these people thinking no corset/stays = feminism! or whatever bizarre misinformed notion... like... sorry its a necessary article to complete a historic outfit. and on being able to ride horses in the costumes, these costume designers really did so little research on historic clothing that they didn't know women wore corsets to horse ride for centuries *eyerolls* and yeah the iconic yellow dress really looks like a modern prom gown and an ugly one at that :/

Yeah, agreed. And especially corsets pre-1800. They were not designed to narrow the waist per se. They were designed to push the breasts upwards and flair out over the hips. Which is effect made the waist narrower, but this was not a goal in itself. If anything, they could restrict the arms more than the waist.

A main idea was that the corset supported the torso, not necessarily re-shaping it. If exaggerated - for grand occations - they could be a challenge. But for everyday wear they were just a part of the attire, giving a welcome support to a torso which may have carried several children and which may be exposed to hard physical work.

There is negative things to be said about the corset, but much of this stems from the early 20th century, where the corsets frankly were at its worst. They pushed the bust out in front and the butt out in the back, while keeping the stomach straight. It gave the torso a most challenging S shape. Here’s 18th century stays and paniers VS early 20th century stays:

It was also in the late 19th and early 20th century tight-lacing became a fetish, where the laced-in waist was to be as narrow as possible. But this short-lived corset phenomenon shouldn’t be translated into corsets 1600-1800 whose shape was conical and function fundamentally different.

And that’s also why the talk of corset or non-corset in “Beauty and the Beast” rubs me the wrong way. They sauce every corset myth ever together in a strange soup, and the conclusion is of course that they don’t like this strange soup, so they’re not gonna deal with it. Sigh.

was it just me or was Emma's coat in this ep really ugly? Not even just the complaints about floral patterns making her look too girly/weak (which I do agree with), it's just an ugly coat IMO.

Sorry to disappoint, anon, but I happen to really like it and her new style. I like & appreciate the thought that Jen has put into Emma’s wardrobe as a symbol of growth. Emma Swan is the most beautiful she’s ever been in six years and I’m so happy and proud of her.

Since when are flowers/femininity (”girliness”) signs of weakness?

“He focused on Luke once again, and saw his son was crying. Yes, that was it; he was tasting the boy’s grief – because he looked so horrible; because he was so horrible.

“But he wanted to make it all right for Luke, he wanted Luke to know he wasn’t really ugly like this, not deep inside, not altogether. With a little self-deprecatory smile, he shook his head at Luke, explaining away the unsightly beast his son saw. ‘Luminous beings are we, Luke – not this crude matter.’

hey! I really love your doomXhylics work! it's really cool and super super polished I'm impressed! also there is something deeply unsettling about Wayne moving his eyes hhh h h h

thank you!!! i’ll get back to work on it this week; since the last video post i’ve added the Dark Flame ability (burns all enemies in your FOV), changed how the burrito freezes enemies so it’s less ugly-looking, and added TNT (blows everything up in a HUGE radius after five seconds)

this is honestly my first WAD, so i’m really happy to hear this! getting the code and scripts to work is easy enough, but getting it to look good is HARD.

(and YEAH, godddd. no wonder Mason Lindroth didn’t give him moving eyes in Hylics)

Max- So you’re not mad about me keeping my time powers a secret from you

Kate - Of course not. It was kind of unbeleivable, and besides, I have my own secret

Chloe - ‘hops on the bed merrily, shaking Kate’ Ooooh what is it !

Kate - 'looks down at lap’ W-well…..I’m a witch…..

Chloe - 'laughs’ Yeah right !

Kate - 'annoyed’ Chloe, I really am a witch

Chloe - No way, you’re way too cute to be an ugly old witch 'pats Kate on the cheek’

Kate - 'hurt’ Chloe….that’s really mean

Chloe - Now that Kate’s done with her joke, what’s on the agenda for today…..

Kate- 'getting really annoyed’ Chloe……..

Chloe - Shush Kate, we’re plan……..

Kate - 'stands up, her pupils disappearing ,chanting' LEPUS FASCINARE !
 'Chloe disappears in a puff of smoke, only to be replaced by a small quivering bunny, a streak of blue along her fur'
 Max - KATE !'picks up Chloe, cradling her in her arms gently'
 Bunny Chloe  - 'looks at Kate' 'higher pitched form of her own voice' Not cool.........      'ears flatten against body'
 Kate - 'sad' I'm sorry Max.......
 Max- You turned her into a bunny ....that's a little beyond the usual sorry....'taps foot impatiently'
 Bunny Chloe - Couldn't you have changed me into something cooler ?! Bunnies are  so unpunk D= 
 Kate - I-it's just, it's just....she was being so mean!
 Bunny Chloe  - What kind of witch turns someone into a bunny ? It's              supposed to be a toad.......
 Max- That's no reason to cast crazy life altering spells. USE YOUR WORDS !
 Kate - 'starts crying' 
 Max- 'distraught' Kate ! Oh jeez  'looks around the room frantically, spotting the cage in the corner' Don't worry , we'll just find a way to turn her back, it's no big deal ! 'puts Chloe in the cage next to Alice' 
 Kate 'sniffs' family has a bunch of old spellbooks that we could look into.......I’m kind of new to all this

Bunny Chloe  - I could tell….

 'Max and Kate move towards the door' 
 Bunny Chloe  - You can't just leave me here !
 Max - 'strokes Alice's cheeks' Don't worry Chloe, we'll just leave you with Dana while we're gone
 Bunny Chloe - Max.......that's Alice..........
 Kate - 'coughs and eyes the door'
 Max- Uhhhhhhh  ‘stuffs carrot in front of Chloe' Here you go, nosh on this, bye ! =D 
 ‘Max runs out of the room with Kate'
 Bunny Chloe - 'yells' Hey ! This isn't funny you two ! Bring me with... !
 Kate - 'opens the door, pointing to Chloe' SILENTIUM !
Bunny Chloe - 'chitters momentarily before ears flatten against body once    more'  
 Kate - Sorry, but I can't have you spilling my secret to anyone while I'm having my alone time with Max 
 Bunny Chloe - 'ears perk up' 'chitters madly'
 Kate - Bye =) 'shuts door'
 Bunny Chloe - 'plops down and starts noshing on carrot' 'rabbit speak' This is such bullshit.......
 Alice - Hey, are you going to finish that....?
 Bunny Chloe - 'pulls carrot away' Get your own
