idk where this is from. its sourced to fripperiesandfobs.tumblr.com but i found it on pinterest and the link doesnt work. 
i need it

Is this an extant garment or is it a recreation? A good place to look up extant garments is the costume institute website (part of the met museum).

Im going to say based on the flounces and the neckline which looks kind of sweetheart to me, that its a recreation of some sort. Also black dye from that time period doesnt usually last long, it turns brownish. I dont think black was popular then either. But I could be totally wrong. 

There are plenty of black clothing from that period that survived to present day, especially court wear that was meant to last and created with top quality dyes. There was a lot of weird stuff going on in the 1700s, especially in courts outside of France and England. It could totally be an extant garment, it could also be a replica of some sort :( identification isn’t very easy on this stuff. Hope you figure it out!

darawb said: Whats your favorite book/comic by Neil Gaiman?

kateordie:

Coraline. The Graveyard Book. American Gods. The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

They all make me feel something I’ve never quite gotten from anywhere else. The way swimming at sunset with fireflies feels. What it’s like to discover a trap door in an old house. The quiet bravery of steeling yourself against the dark and all the shadows that hide within it.

Night Vale touches those parts of my brain. Locke and Key did, too. I love people who create with unrestrained respect for mystery, fear, heart and joy.

Am I allowed to be annoyed because Kate nailed a lifetime’s worth of feeling about what Neil’s words do my brain into four sentences, and I couldn’t do it in less than a dozen? God, she’s good.

You can be annoyed, I’ll be flattered. ^_^

Black Hours, Bruges, c. 1470
This Book of Hours, referred to as the Black Hours, is one of a small handful of manuscripts written and illuminated on vellum that is stained or painted black. 
The black of its vellum—the very thing that makes the codex so striking—is also the cause of some serious flaking. The carbon used in the black renders the surface of the vellum smooth and shiny—a handsome but less than ideal supporting surface for some of the pigments. 
The anonymous painter of the Black Hours is an artist whose style depended mainly upon that of Willem Vrelant, one of the dominant illuminators working in Bruges from the late 1450s until his death in 1481.
