    • @Inez De Kleine and I still enjoy them. I wished however, that Karolina would make a review of more elder films. Like The Draughtman's contract, The Leopard, Dangerous Liasons. I used to hear great stuff about the costume design there. However, I fear not many people remember these movies. They focus on the newer ones and that's it. Alos it would be nice to know what she is thinking on the newest adaptation of Jane Eyre. Also, I wonder if she has ever watch The count of monte christo with Gerard Depardieu? - There are some shitty make up there, but the outfitts look at least for my eye quite decent.

  • I know it's all fantasy and has great diversity + inclusivity but I cannot forgive it for being so far removed from the actual book plot as I read the books first. If they wanted, they could make an entire new plot by themselves instead of saying they're adapting the Bridgerton books. :c

  • **watching Bridgeton with gran* **sees corsets hurting character cause they're evil torture devices* Gran: Oh shame look what the corsets are doing to them! Oh I hate corsets (all practicallyinaudible so hopefully shedidn't think I was being rude to her in the next bit) Me: **exasperated sigh* Of course it's hurting them! They're not wearing anything between the corsets and their bare skin! You're supposed to have something under your corset! If it's hurting you that much anyway then you've done something wrong or it's not made to fit you! Jumps stays and corsets aren't supposed to hurt! Gran throughout my rant: cause of the metal in the corsets... they're probably in so much pain... they're not wearing anything under the corsets so they're getting stabbed by the metal... Me: I'm tired **yawns and pretends to go to bed*

  • Because we live in 2020, the decorative fabrics of that time period would not give us the sense of wealth. It has to be over the top with jewels and embroidery. Otherwise it is Jane Austen, and Netflix viewers aren't looking for Jane.

  • I used to love Historical Accuracy review videos, they can be very entertaining and educational, and I really appreciate that you began with a disclaimer regarding artistic license in the film industry, however I am asking many costubers to be aware that these style videos are being used to shame and gatekeep hobbyists and beginner sewists. While I understand that these videos are very popular, pulling in more than your usual viewers (and when YT is your job, views are income). I'm asking that costubers be aware of this and make a point to ask your audience to not use your content to tear others down. Thank you.

  • Bridgerton is like a Wish version of what it should have been... Or could have been.... I did like the polyester princess theme though. Totally escapist, to a land and time that's never existed. It was cheese but i couldn't stop watching!

  • Now that you mentioned the word fanfic... I have to say the term absolutely fits not just in the costumes but in the story as well because a lot of details have been changed. Even the personalities of the characters don't fit how they were portrayed in the books or at least how I interpreted them to be while reading the series. Timelines and plotlines are similar but different. The world setting also changed especially in terms of how race/ethnicities played out in the Regency ton. It's Julia Quinn's Bridgerton but in an alternate world. So yeah...it is a fanfic.

  • Nothing about Bridgerton is historically accurate, and I don't care. I love it. Bridgerton is a Romance Novel, naughty bits and all, brought to life. Finally. Somebody did the thing women have been waiting for. Or at least, this woman. Pornhub is sex without a plot. Romcoms are plots without sex. Somebody at Netflix put them together and blew the roof off the ratings for this show. Now they just need to do that again (and they will) 8 more times.

  • I'm an American and I don't think British people dressed that way. I hated the costumes so much I exited Bridgerton in the first 5 minutes. Who are they hiring to do this stuff? I think this happens because costuming is never given any importance. They just swing a dead cat and hire the first person it hits to do the costumes. Thanks for reviewing it. Love your channel.

  • I don't know much about that era but as soon as I started watching Bridgerton, I knew it was historically inaccurate 😂 But you know what, I actually like the dress designs for modern day use. Pretty chaste and some were simple. Like, I would make one of those dresses and just wear it. 🤔

I don't know much about historical fashion, but my noob-level knowledge was enough that whenever I saw scenes with the queen, I got pulled out of the idea that everyone was in the same (fantasy-like) era! Bugged me a lot. The inconsistencies with the script....nevermind. That has no bearing for this video. :D

  • I thought the costumes weren't great. There are so many manmade laces and fabrics. So that is a decision that can be hard to overcome. I found the bad costume creations to be a huge distraction for me and stopped watching the show. The cheap costume jewelry also didn't work. Harlots does a great job of modernizing. This also feels like an American version of a British story. Best of luck, however, to Shonda!

  • I don’t know about others but that story looked to me like it was taking place in a post-dystopian/ post-apocalyptic world where there was a kind of regency like era revival with a very 21st century take... so basically a fantasy story down to the core which is why I like kinda like it and don’t take it seriously. The sisters I t hat show got tea and it be delish

    Joel LeBlancJoel LeBlancDag sedan
  • I believe from the story line and where they are taking her character at least Penelope's exclusively "overboob" bodices are made that way on purpose so that in the next series she will look older and more confident. I think it is most probably a set up to give her a cinderella moment later in the story. The designer clearly knows how to dress a curvier figure, look at her mother's dresses, she always looks amazing even through she does not have a slim, almost flat silhouette. Because we know they are using the colors to make a point why wouldn't they use the dress fit and shape also?

  • The level of pretentiousness in the beginning of this review. You literally explained the reasons for why a production would have to budget and then criticize them for budgeting. The spitting noise that you make when you trying to be sarcastic is rude . I Couldn’t make it through the rest of the review because I don’t want to hear that noise again.

You made some really great points and I'm glad I wasn't the only one who felt this way after seeing the fashions presented in this fanfic of a show.

  • I couldn't stomach watching this entire video, but Bridgerton was based on an historical romance novel, "The Duke and I". That alone should tell you just how much they were concerned with historical accuracy and it would appear they took that as a chance to use a lot of creative liberty, such as making the Duke a black man. I for one enjoyed it this way, especially as a huge Julia Quinn fan (yeah, I actually read "The Duke and I" when it was first released, I still have the 1st edition print even). Again, this is not Jane Austin or something else where one might expect stricter elements of accuracy. It's an historical romance, as such... people need to realize and accept that it's really more of a fantasy than anything else. I get wanting costuming to be a certain way. My daughter is historical fashion obsessed, but this is NOT the type of show where one should expect accuracy on any sort of level for the reasons I've already stated. It would be like expecting accurate costuming in the "Once Upon A Time" series or something. It makes no sense because it is all based in fantasy, or in other words, things that would NEVER happen in the first place.

  • I like you’re knowledge of fashion from different eras but it’s possible haven’t worked in theatre or film as a designer. The costume designer isn’t just given complete free reign. Don’t think that they don’t know all of the things that you are saying and haven’t done their research. Things usually start with the directors vision of the show and everyone works towards that. So it likely that many different people had input into the design process. Sometimes the directors vision and the costume or sound or set are the complete opposite of what the designer would choose to do if it were wholly up to them. They are working within a brief and the Bridgerton brief was clearly not to be historically accurate. Maybe even deliberately. The wanted a modern twist which you can also see in the casting. I loved it and yes, I’ve studied costume.
