What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
Progress in TPP:C so far…
It took 10 minutes to talk to AJ’s mum, over 3 hours to reach Cherrygrove City (resulting in the Totodile affectionately named Lazor Gator, to reach level 11), and now our wayward hero AJDNNW travels through Route 30 to reach Mr Pokemon’s house…
If the date says July, it is because it is from the UK website. The release date is still in June in North America.
