“When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.”—Stevie Nicks (via bmurguia)
1840s maybe 1850s, a little too *goth* but not so inaccurate I can’t deal with it.
And then I saw the other costumes
1900s Gibson Girl with an Elsa Schiaparelli belt this movie might as well be title HAHAHAHAHAHAHA FUCK YOU OMGTD. The rest of this movie could be fucking flawless but I will never be able to enjoy it because I’ll be picking apart every little inaccurate costume detail.
