    Most Unfortunate Lady

    there is nothing worst in this world, then for a mother to loose her child.
    yet worst is for a mother to have a kid that wants to die.
    but tragic has no end - since worst that this is for a mother to have such a child, that she begins to ask the Lord to take him away.
    these are terrible times...
    French Revolution Period
    She used to be a noble.
    Now... concept!

    EXcuse me for saying this, but that's a mighty tough one. On another note: watching Marie-Antoinette might be good inspiration, at least fashion-wise.

    So, did I understand this correctly: During or directly after the French Revolution, a formerly nobel lady is in grief over her son who has committed suicide? Man, that's loaded, but certainly tragic!

    No no no, the kid ain't dead yet, he just wants to die. Think i may have a nice idea, but i'm not sure if it's right before heads started to roll or after. Or is that up to the participant.

    Yeah, costumes.org is pretty good about most periods. What I don't like about them is a lot of times they fail to cover all different classes for each period. There is a shortage of images of the period costume of an average joe or even a poor peasant for this particular era. Anyway, glad you posted that, Oblio.

    Just curious "she used to be a noble" what is she now? Would she still be wearing fancy clothes or would she look more like a peasant?

    The good thing about costuming for this period is that not much went on in fashion during the French Revolution. Everything that people were wearing before pretty much stayed the same until a little while after so that's a pretty broad window of time to snatch and grab ideas from.

    I've got a book some may wanna go out and grab if stuff like this ever comes up and the internet comes up short "The Historical Encyclopedia of Costume" by Albert Racinet. Covers freakin' everything I've ever needed it for. Best dumpster diving find ever.

    Destinatus I imagine that she would maintain her haughty air. Perhaps her fancy clothes are dingy and tattered, patched in places maybe or hanging there as a reminder of what she once was while she laments her existence.

    The only thing that's tweaking my brain in including in this is the kid aspect, I have some ideas but holy freakin' hell it's irritating.
