I don't know where to start, but I shall with the fashion.

My novel is loosely 1770-ish. So Baroque, Georgian, Colonial and the like.
So, when I say wide-dresses, I feel like people don't believe me. They are not this extreme in my book, but the fashion plays a huge role in it, for the women AND MEN.
I refuse to let people forget the amazing and colorful and fun fashion of men's suits.
This is such a small sample of the gowns and styles for men and women. This was a time period that I didn't really care about, but since I've started looking it to it, it's just gaaah
I would also like to the time to PSA to all my writers and illustrators,
CORSETS DO NOT GO ON BARE SKIN
No. Stop it. And also TIGHT-LACING DOESN'T BECOME A THING UNTIL LIKE THE 1890s!
Okay, I have to stop or I will rage.
Anyway, I got so mad at 'costuming' that I had to make a whole pinterest board on period accurate clothing. So, if you need something, hit me up. I probably got it.
Oh yeah...the novel, lol:
