    No, it was a status/fashion thing of that time period.

  3. Love it great you are making a Les mis world or something and to the first commenter wearing makeup was very popular back down .I think the men wore more then the women actually :)

  4. to Dolly mix: they weren't wearing that much of makeup during that period. EA messed it up again (but what else is new)
    The rococo period is an European artistic style and movement which was from 1720 till 1775.
    It was a reaction against the baroque style, such as you see in the palace of versailles. And i see that EA also makes a mistake with this.

  5. I'm a fashion student. I got literally 100% in fashion history. I see where EA was trying to go with this, but a few things are a fail.

    1.) The time period they are referring to, as candesco points out, began nearly 300 years ago...200 years ago was more the Regency, Jane Austen era.

    2.) The skirts are simply too narrow. I mean...maybe they're trying to prevent clipping, but skirt width was pretty regular throughout the period. (Note the super wide paniers seen on Marie Antoinette's court dresses were out of fashion by then and merely for show.)

    Earlier example.

    Later example.

    3.) I kinda think the stuff is influenced by Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette and was executed poorly. (I mean, they intentionally dummied this down, which is ridiculous.)

    4.) If you're going to give the hairs specific names, Duchess of Devonshire and Marie Antoinette should be swapped. While they were contemporaries, Georgia Cavendish was more active after Marie Antoinette's death (the two had been friends). Marie Antoinette was more known for the other hair style, as it's more reminiscent of her early reign (though she was very influential in bringing about the fuller, less fussy look that Duchess G later epitomized).

    5.) The Watteau pleats (the blue morning dress) are, granted, accurate and a nice touch. (It's the most realistic female dress.)

    6.)Idiotically enough, the painting that comes with the set is more or less a woman wearing a dress from the 1830's, aka the WORST DECADE EVER for fashion. EVIDENCE!

    Overall, I like they're trying to do something different...but I really wish they'd go for some historical accuracy. I don't even think they try. Can't they pay someone to research this stuff for them?

  6. * Georgiana Cavendish (I have a sinus infection and my brain is like mush right now.)

    And my whole point with the 1830's thing is...why put it in a Rococo set unless you don't know any better?

  7. Perhaps because it's a GAME and the majority of players seriously don't give a shit.

  8. EA has never been known for historical (or cultural) accuracy. That's what CC creators are for.
