This was one of the more difficult dresses I've made for Anne. I didn't even attempt it until recently b/c it was so complicated & such an unusual color. From what little I could see in the wiki photos, the dress is silvery-blue, while the sleeves are black with silver & gold stripes. However, a lot of fans love this dress, & I just couldn't leave it out of the collection. I ended up with a compromise regarding the color. I couldn't get silvery blue, so I made it a soft blue w/ gray woven in. The medallions on her bodice were also difficult b/c there aren't any silver medallions in the game, only gold or pearls.

The doll has gotten 1 Crown for Pretty and 3 for Accurate (though probably towards the costume, not history), & 1 for Intricate.

It is a pretty dress, and I've even seen it converted into a modded outfit for Sims on Sims 2 to wear. The sleeves are especially striking, and the silvery blue compliments the Queen's much darker wardrobe.

However, I found two things strange about the costume on the Tudors show:
1.) Anne Boleyn was shown working in the honored position of one of Queen Catherine's ladies-in-waiting, (something she did in real life too) and this job included attending to the Queen's personal needs. As expected with any job, the ladies wore "uniforms" that the Queen probably designed herself to suit her position and color preference. So it makes very little sense that Anne's "uniform" is much prettier and more decorated than the rest of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting. Everyone knows she eventually became important in the King & Queen's lives, but that's no reason to really make her stand out like a favored servant. The Queen treated her no differently than her other ladies-in-waiting while Anne was in her service.

2.) I did read that the show actually condensed the time-span of Henry VIII's reign, and changed some of the characters' ages and life experiences to suit the course of the main storyline, as well as appeal to viewers w/ shorter attention-spans than your average history-nut (of which I'm one ;) ) In that context, they made it look like Anne rose to the privileged position of waiting on the Queen & washing her feet at night, in the span of a few months, when in fact, she was in the Queen's service for a few YEARS before she could even come CLOSE to that honor. (This is also true of how long it took Henry to notice Anne in real life, as opposed to what the show romantically implied).

This is Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII's fourth wife. She was a German princess, whose marriage served to create an alliance with England. However, things didn't work out between her and the king. It's a pretty long story, so I'll just tell about the painting.

Henry was interested in an alliance with the Duke of Cleves, who had two daughters old enough to marry. Hans Holbein, the court painter, was sent to do paintings of the ladies so the king could decide which one he wanted. He chose Anne. However, legend has it that Hans fell in love with Anne while painting her, and portrayed her as prettier than she was in real life.

After Anne had arrived in England and was on her way to the court, the king decided to see her in person, not wanting to wait for his "pretty" new bride. So he dropped in on her early, and was NOT happy with the real woman who had come to marry him. You could imagine how cheated he must have felt. But then again, he wasn't much of a prize himself by this time in his life.

Since the marriage was never consummated, the two of them could legally divorce by English law, but to keep the alliance with Germany, Henry gave Anne her own homes and luxuries to live in, and treated her as his "sister" and friend after that. It's nice to say that Anne of Cleves' marriage to Henry VIII had the happiest ending of all the wives.

This outfit was a real pain in the butt to make, mostly because Anne is shown in her most famous painting wearing a very elaborate and odd-shaped German gown. I had to make the upper sleeves and hat out of beads, and the wired veil was the EASY part, lol. Like some of my other works, this was a 2nd attempt at imitating Anne's famous portrait. The first time didn't go over so well and looked like a mess, so it's good that this one turned out better.

This image is based off a painting I found of Catherine of Aragon in a brown dress. There were a lot of paintings to choose from, though in this one she actually seemed happy.

Catherine of Aragon was a Spanish princess that had married Henry VIII's older brother, Prince Arthur as part of an alliance with Spain. However, Arthur died of tuberculosis soon after they were wed, and Henry VII refused to give her dowry (AKA marriage money) back to her or Spain. So Catherine spent 6 years in poverty until Henry VII died and his son Henry VIII married her and was crowned king. (I believe most of us know what happened after that, with Anne Boleyn and all).

Because the Tudors Scene-Maker didn't have any gable-hoods for the ladies, I had to improvise with beads. This was a second attempt because the first time around, I forgot the white lappets on her headdress, & I forgot to color her necklace gold. (I didn't want all the portrait versions of the Tudor ladies wearing the exact same necklace). She was also holding a sprig of wheat in the painting, but the game didn't have one, so she's holding a hankie instead.

This image was actually used in my "Dear Hollywood" series, as a real-life comparison to the "Tudors" version of Queen Catherine.

Isabella of Portugal, Holy Roman Empress and German Queen, painted by Titian.

Isabella was the second child and eldest daughter of King Manuel I of Portugal and his second spouse, Infanta Maria of Castile and Aragon. She was named after her maternal grandmother, Isabella I of Castile, and her aunt Isabella, Princess of Asturias, who had been her father's beloved first spouse.
She was the mother of Phillip II of Spain.

She died in 1539, so this is a postumos portrait painted 9 years after her death.

Juana of Castile, or Juanna la Loca

Juana was the eldest daughter of the Catholic Kings, Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella od Castile (and the elder sister of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife), and become the queen of Castile after the death of her mother.

Juana became known as Joanna the Mad, because of its emotional disorders, which worsened with the affairs of her husband, Philip the Handsome, by whom she was completely in love.

Most historians now agree that she had melancholia, severe clinical depression, a psychosis, or a case of inherited schizophrenia. There is debate about the diagnosis that she was mentally ill considering that her symptoms were aggravated by non-consensual confinement and control by others who had assumed her royal powers.

Barbara Lennie played Joan of Portugal, Queen of Castile, in the series " Isabel" (2012).

Joan of Avis (1439 – 1475) was Queen consort of Castile as the second wife of King Henry IV of Castile and a Portuguese infanta, the posthumous daughter of King Edward of Portugal and his wife Eleanor of Aragon. She was born in the Quinta do Monte Olivete, Almada six months after the death of her father.

On 21 May 1455 in Córdoba, Spain, she married as his second wife King Henry IV of Castile who had repudiated his first consort, Blanche II of Navarre, after thirteen years of marriage. It was rumoured that their marriage had never been consummated due to the king's impotence. Henry and Joan shared the same maternal grandparents; Ferdinand I of Aragon and Eleanor of Alburquerque (making them first cousins). They also shared the same paternal great-grandfather; John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster (making them second cousins).

In February 1462, six years after Joan's marriage to Henry, she gave birth to a daughter, also named Joan, called La Beltraneja because of rumours that she was in fact the daughter of Don Beltrán de la Cueva, 1st Duke of Alburquerque, who was suspected of being Joan's lover.

At the Spanish court, prior to her banishment, Queen Joan, beautiful and passionate, had provoked much criticism as she allegedly wore dresses that displayed too much décolletage, and her wanton behaviour was considered scandalous. Joan has been credited with many lovers, including the poet Juan Rodríguez de la Cámara.

Henry banished Joan from the royal court and she went to live in Coca at the castle of Henry's supporter, Bishop Fonseca. She soon fell in love with Bishop Fonseca's nephew; they embarked on a sexual affair, which resulted in Joan bearing her lover two illegitimate sons. At the death of her former husband in 1474, Joan championed her daughter's right to succeed to the throne, but she died shortly thereafter.Joan died in Madrid on 12 December 1475 at the age of 36. She was buried in the Convent of San Francisco.

Isabella of Austria (1501–1526). Archduchess of Austria, Infanta of Spain and Princess of Burgundy by birth and Queen of Denmark, Sweden and Norway by her marriage to King Christian II, was the daughter of Philip I and Joanna of Castile and the sister of Emperor Charles V. She was born at Brussels.

On 11 July 1514 Isabella was married by proxy to King Christian II of Denmark with Emperor Maximilian, her grandfather, standing in for the king. A year later, the Archbishop of Norway was sent to escort her to Copenhagen. The marriage was ratified on 12 August 1515.
Isabella was crowned Queen of Denmark and given the name Elisabeth, but the relationship between her family and king Christian was quite cool during the first year of the marriage. The King's Dutch mistress, Dyveke Sigbritsdatter, had been with him since 1507, and he was not about to give her up for a teenaged girl.

This angered the Emperor, and caused some diplomatic strife between him and King Christian, but the matter was resolved when Dyveke died in 1517, and Isabella's relationship with her husband improved vastly over the next few years. She bore him three children, Hans, Christina and Dorothea, and when king Christian was deposed in 1523 by disloyal noblemen supporting his aging uncle Duke Frederick, the new king wanted to be on good terms with her family. He wrote her a personal letter in her native German, offering her a dowager queen's pension and permitting her to stay in Denmark under his protection while king Christian fled to the Netherlands.
But Isabella wrote back to duke Frederick in Latin, stating that "ubi rex meus, ibi regna mea", that is "where my king is, there is my kingdom". She then left Denmark with her husband and their children. The young queen died at Ghent at just twenty-four years of age. It is said that the daughter of Denmark's Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary, Princess Isabella, is named after her.

El estado de Sonora no cuenta con un traje típico como tal, sin embargo utilizan como traje representativo el atuendo que usan las mujeres de las tribus Yaqui y Seri.

El traje Seri, es considerado más como el traje típico de sonora y es en opinión de algunos, uno de los más bellos, en gran parte quizás por ser uno de los más sencillos y siendo característico de este la combinación armoniosa de los colores.

Este traje consiste de una blusa de manga larga abotonada al frente, llevando a la altura de la cintura un vuelo u olán que define la figura de las jóvenes. La falda es larga y el ruedo tiene adornos de cintas en colores contrastantes, así como en los puños y el pecho de la blusa. Llevan el cabello largo y las mayores lo cubren en ocasiones con un paliacate anudado bajo la barbilla.

Se adornan con los típicos collares elaborados por ellas mismas con huesos pequeños de pescado, chaquiras, semillas silvestres, conchas, caracolillos y en algunas ocasiones especiales añaden figuras pequeñas talladas en madera palofierro o piedras semiduras.

Además se adornan con cintas hechas para ocasiones especiales ó durante las fiestas tradicionales de la tribu; las mujeres utilizan la pictografía facial que distingue a este grupo, pero desafortunadamente esta costumbre día a día ha ido cayendo en desuso.

La modelo que posa con tan lindo atuendo es una hermosa italiana: Vittoria Di Steffano. =)

Este traje esta compuesto de una blusa de manta larga, la cual es anudada en la cintura por un rebozo o tira de algodón en color rojo, en los bordes del cuello, mangas y bajos del blusón lleva bordados figuras geométricas de diferentes colores en tonos pastel.

La falda es de color negro de raso y lleva cosidos a su parte inferior varias lineas de listones de colores llamativos, bajo esta falda sobresale otra prenda que es como si fuera una falda mas la cual es de manta y es muy similar al bluson, lleva también el mismo bordado que este.

El atuendo es complementado con un rebozo en color negro con franjas azules, el cual suele llevar sobre la cabeza a manera de manto para cubrirse y sobre este llevan un sombrero redondo elaborado de palma.

La modelo es la lindísima Maia Shanks quien venció su timidez para poder ayudar en este proyecto.

:dance: Por fin llegamos a un estado que adoro y como no, si es mi segundo hogar :dance:

Y quien no conoce este hermoso atuendo, otro de los iconos caracteristicos del folklor méxicano :dance: el traje del estado de Veracruz.

El traje tipico de Veracruz o mejor conocido como "traje de Jarocha", consiste en una falda blanca y oleada, con incrustaciones de encaje valenciano y una mantilla de tul de algodon, con bordados de gran belleza.
La blusa es sin mangas, del mismo color. El atuendo se complementan con un chal de seda, de corte llamativo, que puede ser blanco, azul o amarillo; un mandil pequeño de terciopelo negro con flores bordadas en colores brillantes.
Se trata de un conjunto vaporoso y de suave frescura.
Los adornos finales son un abanico adornado con encaje, cadenas de oro al cuello y pulseras en las manos, un paliacate rojo y ademas, un rebozo enredado en los brazos.
La cabeza esta coronada con una peineta de carey y una cinta anudada en forma de moño, del mismo color del rebozo y de las flores de ornato, asi como un ramillete de cuatro rosas naturales que indican el estado civil; si es soltera va de lado izquierdo, si es casada del lado derecho.

La linda modelo que porta orgullosa este hermosísimo atuendo es Erika Shanks.

Elizabeth Bathory.
(Dress based off: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…

Countess, sadist, murderer, and alleged vampiress.

Wiki description:

Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian, Alžbeta Bátoriová in Slovak; 7 August 1560 – 21 August 1614) was a countess from the renowned Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary. She has been labelled the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess," though the precise number of victims is debated. The stories of her sadistic serial murders and brutality are verified by the testimony of more than 300 witnesses and survivors as well as physical evidence and the presence of horribly mutilated dead, dying and imprisoned girls found at the time of her arrest. Despite the evidence against her however, Elizabeth herself was never put on trial because of her family's influence, being instead placed under house arrest. The stories about her vampire like tendencies (being accused of bathing in blood to rejuvenate her skin etc.) are much less verifable than those of her sadism as unlike the easily verified deaths of servants and young girls, these were generally recorded some years after her death. It quickly became part of national folklore.
