Judy : Vol. 29, 1881 Plate 3

vol29_03_thumbWe’re having Judy Tuesday on a Thursday!  Aw, why not; the continuity with this volume was completely shot long ago, so who cares what day we pick it up on again, right? See: chaos.  emoji_wink

The important thing is that Judy’s back!  And I have a couple of plates to carry us forward. Ironically, when I left off it was spring and I was drawing fall/winter costumes. Now the dates kind of align! Well, almost. Let’s call it fate.

I’m thinking of freshening up the dolls for this series. Maybe not changing the post, but I feel like the face are kind of schwein-ish (how did I never not notice that before?). I’m pretty sure I can do better.

I’ll finish this volume before I make any decisions on that, however, so in the meantime, enjoy! I really love the tall peaked hood and acorns on the October dress. I have no idea what the other one is supposed to be, but the boutonniere is fun!

As usual, to find all the plates in this series (and the dolls themselves) click on the Judy tag down below.

    Well, I don’t know what the left outfit is referring too, but right outfit seems to be about the Incroyables who were a French directorate fashion subculture. They wore oversized hats and crazy colors and were heavily caricatured by cartoonists of the era, both French and English.

    • doh! but of course! i recall them from the papers (like this one! hahahaha).
      boy i am slipping in my history. i need a crash course refresher. thanks for filling this in!

        Yeah, it threw me off a little bit, because Judy was being illustrated in the late 1880s and the Incroyables were from like 70 years earlier. So, I am a little surprised that people were still making fun of them. On the other hand, when do the English turn down a chance to make fun of the French in Victorian publications? Not very often. 🙂
