tip: tape your paintings down whilst using water colors to prevent the warping of paper, luv
“To show leg or something” I just love her lol
When your VERY southern Texan family (on both sides) can 100% be tracked back to VERY upper class families, even being related to current day dukes 😅😅
The fact that you used "muggle" makes this video all that much better! lol
Well, I'm subbing the hell out of this channel. I could watch Bernadette throw shade in Middle English all day. Cyme.
She’s like the student who got the highest grades in presentations
never occurred to me how interesting old women's clothes could be
Loved the video. You are one of the brightest fashion historians I've ever met. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, thoughts and opinions with us!
Love the doodles!!
I've found my new favorite channel.
I liked the vampire costume. I can tell it isn’t accurate but if it were well made it would be the fantasy dress of badassery
Would you consider making a Regency era dress like Pride and Prejudice? I've been trying for ages to make something but I'm having trouble and would love some guidance!
Why haven’t I found your channel earlier?!WHERE HAVE YOU’VE BEEN ALL MY LIFFEEEE?!?!
great video and so true, thanks for making fun of this stuff that no doubt was made by. corpulent rectal cavity ❤️❤️❤️
I stan all her shades of cran. In the meter that iambs.
I love that she said, "unsuspecting Muggle"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Came here for the laughs, stayed for the knowledge and the awesome snark. And subscribed for more. Thanks for an amazing video I can't wait to watch more.
If you were my history teacher at elementary school you would have had scared the heck out of me
Can you imagine living in a time when they discovered a new color?
Your art is wonderful
This video popped into onto my siggested videos and I have to say, I don't regret clicking on it. This was exceptionally delightful to watch and it was very nice seeing the depictions of the clothing I've heard referenced in the historical books I like reading/listening to.Thank you Bernadette! I really hope you deign to make similar videos to this one alongside your other-just as delightful-sewing adventures! We all love a good roasting!
I don't get how old paintings aren't public domain anyway. Literary work is made public in under a century usually. Why not paintings too?
What I want to know is where the amazing Bernadette got her watercolors.. those watercolors look so smooth. I also want to learn how to make clothes someday and maybe eventually go to costume college but not sure yet. This video is so awesome, love the mention of madder root in the first outfit, I have some experience with natural dyes, but I dye wool. Great video!! That Old English was amazing!
So there's this musical called Hamilton. There are four women in the musical, and the musical is set from 1776-1804 (1854 if we count Eliza's death at the end). So if you Google "The Schuyler Sisters", you'll see three women in 18th century attire. Do you think the musical was accurate? To be fair, since these women would be singing and moving a lot, I can see why the dresses were simplified. But you are a professional, so what are your thoughts?
I love her mandarin collar shirt thingq
This is brilliant.
That is all.
Is it weird I find her talking history super attractive? Like fuck its hot.
woah how can you live for 500 years ??
"… a copious display of legs, or something." Hahahaha oh man, if you wore any of these things in October where I live you'd die of hypothermia XD
This is what happens when you ask that quiet youth group girl what she's into
1:58 I thought I was going insane for a split second
Halloween, a brush with death.Costumes, a moment in history. Chamber pots, the real mystery.
i think im in love with this woman
Could she be any more obnoxious and condescending?I love the accurate show of real costumes, but she was overly wordy.I'll still give her a like and a share
I love her watercolor skills. I cave, I like her.
Subscribed, I appreciate the knowledge of couture alongside the extensive grammar and wonderful watercolour. I feel as if you could have been more savage with the dialogue, however, speaking from my own personal viewpoints on how I've found myself offended by these costume companies. Much like with the stir around an unpure Christmas, Halloween has been rather stained with the impression of using costumes as an excuse to display prejudice thoughts and discrimination. Notably, we witches do not actually have green skin, and anyone painting their skin green and doing a cackle is no different than smothering your face in charcoal and speaking in clicks and clucks. Even in an age of progression, we still have a long way to go.
I feel like she has read The Canterbury Tales more than once, and same
I dressed up in colonial garb once. But my costume was made of a gown approved as historically accurate but colonial Williams burgh and a hand sewn bonnet cap thing
"I'm afraid I haven't seen anything vaguely resembling gothic vampire trash collar things in the eighteenth century, so we'll go ahead and replace that with a little neck ruffle" I laughed hard enough to wake up my housemate!
Not my proudest fap
It ain't ye oldehttps://io9.gizmodo.com/ye-olde-is-fake-old-english-and-youre-mispronouncing-1679780566
No one thinks they actually dressed like that.. No one.
please do more side by side comparison/corrections, this was absolutely fascinating and being able to see visually your corrections and how you redid the dress but correctly made it so much easier to understand, as someone who doesn't know shit abt dresses or fashion history!
It makes me wonder is the ideas about waist reduction weren't just perpetuated because of media but also because people today don't wear as many layers on the bottom so the contrast between that and their waist in some periods makes these myths much more believable…🤔
You should make a video about historical wedding dresses
After watching a few videos i have noticed that most times you start talking about something not in your aesthetic you just call it trash. You are entitled to your opinion but just rubs me the wrong way when you are so dismissive about things you just may not be into.
This video brings me peace
999,959 views 🤞🏾
I love prang water colours!
I just dress the way I want, going from Lolita, to steampunk, to even ganguro.,. Still, those Halloween costumes, I hate them for being really cheaply made.,. and tbh, I've ordered one time a cosplay from China and it was so badly made, I'll never ever do it again, I rather make it myself.,.
How the hell are you able to make me watch this entire video and drop a like. i hate fashion and i hate history!
Want to say, I love your personality, vigor, and energy. Your channel is really interesting to me and I hope you keep that energy alive. Can't wait for more content!
You must be fun at parties.
“One whole ETERNITY to sew by hand!” 👏
if this bitch was a male she would be getting made fun of a get called neck beard because of the over the top mannerism and language. it dose not come off endearing but ostentatious and snotty/stuck up.
I feel like I'm watching a medieval reporter telling me everything I need to know.
I subscribed immediately.
sorry sexy renaissance gunevere,but the hair must have to go
I just laugh at that part🤣🤣🤣
I could literally watch your videos for hourrrss
Guinivere was more likely in the 5th century, and was Celtic, not Anglo Saxon. She did not speak English, but rather Briton, the language which developed into modern Welsh. I applaud your attempt to educate people about historical dress, however.
Please tell me I’m not the only person, who is mixed (Welsh(Celtic, White) on my mothers side, Maori with a pinch of German (I mean pinch, my fathers skin is still the colour of that of a full Maori but half Maori is still Maori) on my fathers side), whenever they see outfits (Pirate, Warrior) just laugh cause they know WHAT they actually look like? Just me
I love love all the technical terminology you use, like "floufage".
"let's ban this hat to the deepest pits of hell"
Is that a Singer Sewing machine on your shelf? You're cute btw, be my girlfriend please.
Is this female autism?
Why am I even here 😅
The 21st century, I.E. the death of pride in culture.
I'm likely not the target for these videos, and yet I find them intriguing and like, as much as you can like someone you don't really know, Bernadette. In truth it would be better to describer her as enthralling. That may sound odd for the discussed subject, but true none-the-less. This is the third video I have watched on discovering her work,
rofl actually look like plastic! yuck!
What did your paintings end up being worth?
What is your opinion of THIS:
Thanks for lovely sketches, great information + footnotes 🙂
In grade school, I was a renaissance person on Halloween and hey, they got the hoop skirt right at least, although, it was a pain to walk in.
why the fuck do i sit here and watch this video
Omg, she said ”trash” so quick I had to go back and see if I misheard. 😂😂 she's so subtly angry it's scary.
I just started watching the video and out of curiosity I looked at the video description. I love how it looks like there is every source for the images, music, etc. in here. It's really nice.
7:36 you said pair so were was actually correct
The image on the left at 10:24 😂😂
Sh%&t, as a German, I could understand almost every word she said in anglo saxon!
Hello Kanaya Maryam
I feel like she should go to a renaissance fair and set up a booth called “let an actual historian make you critique your costume for 10$ she would make a killing”
I don’t know what guides my thoughts, but I think that her husband is by my standarts luckiest men alive.
the more i watch of this lady,the more my theory of her being a billion year old time traveler becomes a fact rather than a theory
I was a plague doctor for Halloween and I've already accepted I was innacurate, I was very steam punk.
So actual question, and pardon if its somewhere in the video, but how does one actually achieve "ultimate puff". Closest thing I actually know of in detail is the sleeve garters of 19th century men's shirts, which gives that poofy effect if you pile up a long enough length of sleeve in a short area, but the Elizabethan puff seems more structured.
Since we are being pedantic, the ye in "ye olde" was never supposed to be pronounced like the ye in "hear ye, hear ye", but rather as "the", this is due to how spelling changed from Old to early modern to modern English.
"OG Elizabetheans required ultimate puff." A marvellous phrase.
I’m working on some character designs for a side project I’m working on, but I’ve hit a road block trying to find some specific fashion styles and trends for teens growing up in the mid-late 1920-30’s!
Of course it’s entirely up to you (and I’d rather not waste anyone’s time), but could you perhaps point me towards a few good sources for the progressive changes in style throughout the period?
Those sleeves gotta be one big puff.
Your absolutely fantastic rant about Halloween costume garbage was sweet sweet music to my ear. I personally refuse to buy costumes from Party City or any similar establishment for many of the reasons you point out.
Farb the farb is giving me heart burn
a youtuber who adds footnotes and credit every picture shown, i stan, i subscribe immediately!
English is my second language and as soon as 1:58 happened theres an imaginary record scratch sound in my brain
Yup there we go, watch ome randomly recomended video and your recommendations turn into the creators video tab.
You are going to need those original drawings for your book.
If anyone else is curious the three watercolor paintings sold for $135, $285, and $140 approximately each.
AHh yes, Ms. Bernadette yet again engaged In the very welcome phenomenon one might call 'womansplaining'!So, yap on, dear lady. The burning hunger of my ears, for words flowing from thy crimson stained lips, are never stilled!
