I should clarify: I'm not meaning to roast anyone who wears these costumes due to timing, budgetary, craft skill or any other restraints. The purpose is to point out why these costumes don't actually represent history, so that we don't live our merry lives with skewed understandings of the past. By all means, rock your Sexy Renaissance Guinevere with my full enthusiasm, as long as we're all aware that these are fantastical costumes and not educational representations of history. 🙂
"Boujee, Form-Fitting Look" lmaaoo– i–
I cannot deal with how beautiful the hairstyle you’re wearing is. I’m shook.
Have you considered reviewing Doctor Who costumes for historical accuracy?
It's Halloween let it go and don't waste our time
I enjoyed this SO MUCH!!!
Btw some of the songs are folk round and teller of tales
I could hear the music that plays in the background of the Merchant RPG game.
eh, a millennium here a millennium there. Who's counting? lol
What did you wear for Halloween? I want to see that.
Youtube suggested your video to me…. Youtube is scarily good at knowing what I like apparently. I love your language, poise, posture and presentation. I shall now delve into the rabbit hole of intriguement that is your channel!!!
I can't wait to be able to use the word "floofage" in a conversation
You should do a men version of Halloween costumes. I couldn't stop laughing
Well that was the best eighteen minutes of my day. Amazing.
A good gag costume would be to make a farthingale out of entirely flat, stiff material so you can put snacks on it and be Queen Elizabeth the Thirst
The title implies she's been correcting people for 500 years.
This is neat.
So you are only versed in European/early American clothing history is this correct?
Wow, it took people until the 19th century to find cross-lace corsets fashionable? Spiral-lacing is so close to that! Unbelievable.On another note, I don't care what history the southern belle garments have (nor any garment), they look super cute.
The maroon dress in the thumbnail was literally my dress in the three musketeers…I’m not kidding, it’s THE SAME. EXACT. DRESS.
OMG you speak old english, such a wonderfully fascinating geek – were I not a married man, oh my!
I could watch you draw and paint all day! I loved this!
This was so good, please do one on men's costumes in the future.
i cannot believe you found cheap nasty FULL LENGTH halloween costumes, even more amazed the pilgrim wasn’t showing cleavage! really enjoyed that!
Recently i saw a german author talk About "the beautyfull meat of communication"…now i know what he was talking About 🙂
I can't tell if you're serious or not but I don't think anyone actually thinks those Halloween costumes are historically accurate.
hm, she's kinda cute, especially the acrid comments aimed at the clothing models and costume designers.
This is honestly spectacular. How have I not found this channel until now? God damn.
I as close to literally RAN to order your 18th century vampire watercolor. I needed to have it. Huge history geek, fan of vampires, and obviously goth af myself, it was love at first sight! 💜
Wow. hilarious, and involved description of historical accuracy and trends in women's fashion through the ages. Very good – i will look for the drawings – thanks for showing the stages of drawing. Very helpful. No need to apologise for the subjunctive was/were. You 'were' right: conditional tense takes subjunctive not indicative – yes, i am English major
that renaissance guinevere is obviously supposed to be a renaissance woman dressing up as guinevere
I have been looking everywhere for this type of YouTuber! I am very much into looking at historical fashion. All other youtubers do these days is look at memes and vines that are not even funny.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I fell into this video at random, and despite not having any particular interest in historical dress, you kept it interesting and me engaged. I have no idea what pilgrims did with bones, or where you even get 1.5 million bones…. anyway, what I'm trying to say is this video was fun to watch. Thank you for making it!
((My Fiancee is interested in historical dress, and I will now make her watch this video.))
your look is so cute
I don’t know why this was recommended to me, but I’m so glad it was. You are phenomenal!
In the best possible way, you remind me of Zelda Schiff (the head librarian in the Neitherlands of the series "The Magicians").
This was fantastic! Love your art!
Omg please make an ASMR video your voice is amazing
"Black would have been available in that time period"
And would have been expensive and required additional dye being boiled into it now and then as the black faded into a weird brownish color. Didn't they use some sort of nut casing for the black?
Just the way she talks makes me want to learn something
To be fair most of these are meant to be sexy/slutty.
impressive knowledge of historical garments coupled with good sketching skills.
Not only are you super knowledgeable about the topic at hand, you’re also an incredible artist! I love your sketches!
This is fabulous 💜
Halloween company’s: make historically incorrect costumes
Bernadette Banner: politely triggered
I'm just here to watch you draw
Very creative and well done!
HAHA! I just started to follow you, I LOVE YOUR CONTENT
Me: Stumbles across video at 5 am.
Bernadette Banner: speaks Old English.
Me: Subscribes immediately out of respect.
Fabulous! I so admire your learning–thanks for sharing.
I'm pretty certain the southern Belle costume is meant to be 20th century…
You should do more of these I enjoyed it!
Acuracies in fashion from movies!! Cinderella!!! I need to know!!!
So cool and well discussed. Really enjoyed the watercolor progressions to go along with your descriptions
Thank you for a very enjoyable slutty Muggle costume review.
I've never watched one of your videos before… so this kind of caught me off guard. The look you pull off… wow… Gorgeous, yet unique… Your Clothes, how you've done your hair, your makeup perfectly complimenting your face, very nicely done.Then from there although I'm perhaps not your target audience, you do great work.It was rather interesting seeing you do historical fashion sketches. 🙂
Best of luck with the future. 🙂
– Random person recommended by the youtube's algorithm.
this lady talks like mindy from big mouth
"Do I really need to say this?"🥰
I don't have the legs for a skirt, but this is the kind of pedantry I subscribe for.
You are brilliant!
Seems like I found the intellectual side of YouTube
Time traveler confirmed
9:21 I actually like this costume, not for the historical accuracy but it gives off a strong "The Handmaid's Tale" vibe.
That's why I always go for a modern look like a zombie or modern wampire
I maybe found Bernadette's soul mate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9LS6LguQZkExcept maybe he's not snarky enough.
When she started speaking middle English I fell in love
I love how she talks
Great video! For the record, I have seen references to 18th century black silk gowns. Black and white clothing was worn for mourning, especially by the upper class. Less wealthy individuals may dye garments black or wear a black armband. If you're interested in the subject, read Mourning Dress: A Costume and Social History, by Lou Taylor.
11:46 holy crap, lol, that is actually kinda ridiculous. They would require some massive doors
I am absolutely loving this video, and your illustrations!
This was incredible. Thank you for linking when it wasn't possible to use the cited works directly in your video. A+ content.
This is hysterical, snarky and informative. SUBSCRIBED.
Well new Guinevere saved money on fabric by cutting it off the dress at the butt. And spent it on breast implants. My sister would have loved this programme.Love your sketches and your humour.
You should do a deep dive on the wardrobe from Outlander. They obviously tried really hard and I am curious how accurate it is.
Shakespeare actually spoke Early Modern English which is very much different from Old or Middle English. Just to clarify.
I would enjoy seeing a video on maybe using existing garments to create a look for Halloween that would resemble a historically accurate look. I think people forget about things they already wear being used to create something for halloween.
a you tube channel i never knew I needed! <3
I guess the tik tok dudes who throw towels over their heads pretending to be girls were right shrugs
What would king Arthur’s time be considered? I see it all the time at renaissance fairs and such.I love the legend of King Arthur
The 19th century was torturous for women and apparel, OMG!Wonderful presentation and historical narration. Learned so much.
I am…in love.
The point of these bizarre, historically inaccurate Halloween costumes are not to appear accurate in either material or appearance, but to be nothing more than Halloween costumes. Unless you're a dedicated, caring individual who strives to know more about fashion history and prides herself in her knowledge of such a thing (like you; you know so much about fashion history and that is nothing short of excellent), you do not choose a 100% accurate Halloween costume, for that is just not the nature of costumes. I am not trying to tell you that your approach is wrong in any way, I am only trying to give you insight into why these mass-produced costumes appear to be made by "careless" people who "don't even try."
I'm a big fan of your work and who you are, keep it up.
Gods how did youtube know I wanted to see this video before even I did myself
This video: An intelligent, well researched video about the raw F A C T S and going into intense detail for the sake of historical accuracy.Also this video: the existence of vampires is "debateable"Awesome video, this definitely gave me a chuckle 🙂
The eu,un all Zionist banks media monopolies, social media / tech monopolies, ngos and borderless charities must be destroyed for all western countries to keep their European cultural, heritage, identity and for OUR children to have a safe peaceful.
I LOVED THIS VIDEO!!!
Pretty sure youtube suggested this to me because of a single Jenny Nicholson video, but hey I'm not complaining.
I didn't know I needed this. Where have you been all this time?
is it weird I find the women in your drawings attractive?
im crying at the hoop. i love my conical wife
I recommend that you look at the shoes in Flemish Renaissance paintings and especially by Van Eyck(s). Also and for purely reasons of appreciation I recommend a relatively small painting by Dieric Bouts (fifteenth century) in the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. It is my opinion that the Bout's portrait may be one of the finest paintings in the USA.
i got your video in my reccomended. was surprised but delighted at your work! new sub here, thanks so much!
me: hmm this video might be boringher: starts sketching and paintingme: ooooooooo pretttyyyyy
This was excellent! And your drawings are beautiful!
idk why this appeared in my recommended but for once Youtube has done something right. not only was this actually interesting to watch but man that Old English surprised me. plus this is good reference for drawing.
Ok, relax just a little…..sheesh….
I just love this video so much!
I hope I never run into you during a raid. You seem like the "Healer adjust or gtfo" type. <__<
