“Intern Lyze gets up close and personal with one of the Tudor Tailor’s favourite sources of costume information. Photographing the effigy of Mattathia St Paul who died aged nearly 2, depicted on her parent’s monument of 1613 in St. Lawrence’s Church, Snarford, Lincolnshire”
;D See! I’m not dead!
Sooo ….. I need research on a man’s Austrian nobility costume from 1490.
I’m pretty sure I’m the bane of the librarians life since I spent about three hours combing through every book I could find.
What do I have to show for my time? Dudes in the 14th century liked to chill in trees. Pretty sure these guys might be the decidedly well-dressed missing link.

After winning an Oscar for The Duchess, O’Connor has quickly become a new go-to-guy for great period garb. He told Little Gold Men that Fukunaga’s approach to keeping an oft-told tale as fresh as possible was to go for utter authenticity: “There’s different versions [of Jane Eyre], but you can always tell the period [the movie] was made from hairstyles and such. We wanted to go back to the real thing, and set it really when we thought it was written—especially with the cottons, textiles, and textures we used. They’re all based on real designs of the time.”
FINALLY! A costumier who researches and does it historically accurate! I can’t wait to see this movie!
It’s really not my fault that I have such nice proper British lecturers who are just begging to be shocked.
Call me a colossal pervert if you’d like
I prefer to think I’m just made of epic win but I just totally made the title of my breeches research ”Getting His Pants Off: A Guide to Historical Trousers.”
I even put it in a nice cursive scrolling font.
I wish I could be there when she opens my research and see a bunch of half nude Mr. Darcy-esque men in breeches XD
I’ve found that if I keep a straight face when I make pervy comments my classmates and lecturers get worried because they think they just had a dirty thought.
Because Lyze is totally innocent and would never ever make off colour jokes.
