Since 2002!? I have shoes older than that. OK, I have *everything* older than that. Help me, I hoard. But also, American made Converse? A girl with Fibro's best friend.

@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.

Corsets on bare skin are the BIGGEST historical drama sin.

This series is based on a series of Regency romance books by Julia Quinn. The initial book is "The Duke and I". It is a fantasy romance and is not meant to be realistic.

THANK YOU!! The corsets over the billowy dresses were mind boggling to me. Also, the overboob killed me. It was distracting too. A shame because the show itself is good.

It felt less like a period drama and more of a period romance novel, which seemed to be the point

It is a fantasy but if the clothes pulls you out of the story and makes you stare at the costume rather than paying attention to the story then they got it wrong. I can not stop staring at all the costume failures.

does this lass do costume design or is she just an enthusiast who is informed AF?

It's based on a very contemporary series of romance novels that are basically fan fiction so looking for historical accuracy in it or complaining about the lack thereof is a fallacy in itself. Also, if one were to take the logic of historical accuracy all the way, then by that logic the show would not have any people of colour at all, let alone in important roles. It's 2021, I think we all should rather have historically inaccurate representation that gives space to minorities instead of accuracy that erases them. History need not always be revered. Change is good sometimes, even in a trashy show.

As entertaining as I find this show - as a fan of historic movies and series the first episode gave me a shock just because of all the weird colors and clothes everywhere. I wasn't prepared for such a loose, nearly comedic interpretation of the 1800s then, but when I got used to the idea of it being a fictional fantasy teenage drama, it was very fun to watch. That said, I am NOT a fan of the costumes. I couldn't pin point it but your expression hits the nail on its head: it all looks plastic.

There's not much to expect feom a show that doesn't follow the book it is based on, and created a lot of characters and situations that didn't help telling the main story.

The first advert I saw for "Bridgerton" said "re-imagining history". So I suppose the costumes were "re-imagined"as well. I'm still waiting for something worse than REIGN.

What I miss is the outrageous hats of the period. No female would be seen outdoors without a hat of some kind and to see them bareheaded is really weird. They could have had great fun with them from a costuming standpoint.

Mrs Featherton's outfits/design not fitting made me really fit to me. To me, it felt like it was a purposeful way to make it clearer she doesn't fit in to that society

Within the first few minutes of Bridgerton episode 1, it's obvious that we're watching a fairy tale and not a "period" show at all (despite the invocation of 1813). The colors, the setting, the racially integrated society -- it's all fantasy. So I just accepted that, the way I accepted the look of Game of Thrones or Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell. They aren't historical, so there's no need even to try for accuracy. (Nevertheless, in bona fide historical drama I still want accurate costumes, hair, interiors, and above all *dialogue*).

Yeah this series is a mess.. What most annoyed me about the historic inaccuracy and lack of coherent storyline in this series is it tries to give some kind moral judgement about sexism and racism but without any real (historical) foundation or argumentation, so it just makes no sense. It even seems offensive to feminism and (why is there no word for anti racism?? How do you call that movement)

I didn't watched the show, just read the books and they had me cringing a couple of times. From underwear to white gold wedding bands,... but I still enjoyed them even though they're predictable like Austen. I just don't treat the series like historical romance, but like stories from an alternate universe, new Cinderella, or steampunk, where all male heros are very dominant, but good, romantic lovers and women are reduced to trophies... and I'm kind of okay with it. It's fiction and entertaining.

Much like how all ShondaLand are fanfic of a genre... she basically put gore & shock value into Women in Medicine, & made a career of making Doctors go from a more ‘PaperChase’ to a gritty Harlequin Romance with colon resections. It is Muricun fun, but it wears on me.

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 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.
