I know you haven't heard from me for a while, but now I am back on track!:) All this final exams, course works, and preparations for the end of the 2nd semester had really kept me busy these days. But now, I have a enough time to write a post for you. Before introducing my new products to you, I want to point that I LOVE all the movies about some historical persons, or events, such as "The Young Victoria". Here are some of the facts about Queen Victoria I found on the web:
She became Queen of England four weeks after her 18thbirthday.
The monarch married Prince Albert of Germany on February 10, 1940.
She wore a white wedding dress and ushered in the world wide trend of brides wearing white.
Initially it's believed that Victoria was more in love with Albert than he was with her. The marriage lated proved to be a complete love match.
Her husband Albert died in 1861 at the young age of 42. She mourned his death for almost 10 years. For the rest of her reign she wore black.
Victoria and Albert had nine children. Most of them married into Europe's royal family. She is still known as the Grandmother of Europe.
I love the fashion, art, manners of people, the speech, the music, of that century! Especially when everything is presented so beautifully! Another one of my favourite films is "Marie Antoinette". Marie Antoinette is a figure who has intrigued, provoked and captivated not only those of us now learning her story through film, literature and biography, but her own contemporaries.I searched for some facts about her and found out that:
One year, she ordered about 90 dresses from a dressmaker
She was 15 when she got married
She was a stylista. She enjoyed pushing the boundaries of fashion.
She adopted 3 poor children and raised them as her own.
She had a fabulous jewelry collection. She was also one of the best educated women of her time.
According to Fraser's biography, she was one of the first people to have braces to straighten her teeth!
I love the colors, the spirit of the film, I wish I could travel back in time to live for a while in that centuries, and have a chance to meet this incredible women. This inspired me to make a kits about that times, and these women.
