Here's Second Life Fashion Inspired by Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey SL Fashion

Ms. Gorgeous Yongho here finds and rocks Second Life fashion inspired by Downton Abbey, which I think is some kind of British TV show about extra fancy British people from the Edwardian or Victorian or Elizabethan or one of those eras moping around in a British mansion doing British things, such as passive aggressiveness or sexual frustration. I guess this is a thing, because when Iris Ophelia plays Sims 3, she puts her sims into Downtown Abbey scenarios too. "I love their clothes and hairstyles," says Gogo, "but it’s very hard to find something new in SL (in mesh) that fits the time period."

Sounds like an untapped market waiting to explode. Or as Downton Abbey people might put it: Prove rather excitable, I daresay -- Crumpets! Empire! Bugger all!

Doesn't look very Edwardian to me.
There are lots of pretty good vintage shops and creators in SL that do make historical clothes.
But I don't really see any trace of Downton Abbey in the picture here.

Thanks for the shout out, Hamlet!

Yes not much vintage there but Gogo only wears mesh these days I think. Not much Downton era mesh.

I am also not a fan of her thing for wearing white and shooting against white or pale backgrounds especially with the blur techniques she uses

She does have cute stuff though. Those G Field Eve shoes are well worth getting the willow pack of and they're reasonably priced.

The Downton Abbey setting runs from roughly 1912, through the Great War, into the 1920s. There were some big changes in female fashion over that time.

Hamlet, it's pretty easy to check the dates, rather than getting cutesy dumb.

Oh, and the movies "Gosford Park" and "Bright Young Things" are worth a look for inspiration.
