my outfit for Dojaku on Saturday~! Nothing fancy, I suck at finding new kodona-ish clothes, so I have to reuse old stuff. Well… maybe. There don’t really seem to be anyone coming I know, at least not on saturday and I don’t really wanna go on sunday… So right now I don’t really know if I’m going or not (since it’s also supposed to be pretty hot outside), but I’ve been wearing this on Japan-Day already (rather a slightly different version actually), but don’t have any pictures of it, so… But I really don’t wanna be alone…
(hat from H&M, jabot by Harajuku Maiden, tights from Primark, boots by T.U.K., rest random offbrand)
Illustrations from “Future Dictates of Fashion” by W. Cade Gall that was published in the January 1893 issue of The Strand magazine.
At first I thought this was some “fashion of witches and wizards through the ages” type thing but nah everyone is supposed to dress like this. I wish everyone dressed like this.
we’ve disappointed our ancestors :(
Interesting how they predicted all kinds of recurring trends from history… they didn’t exactly happen this way, but this Victorian illustrator knew enough about fashion history to predict that we’d take from the past somehow!
Also, I think someone should make these outfits and incorporate them into a fashion collection or a stage show of some sort… it’d be such a great concept!
