Regency lady by suburbanbeatnik Regency lady by suburbanbeatnik
I did this a few months ago, when "Becoming Jane" hit the movie theaters, and I had all things Austentastic on my mind. I drew this young lady while listening to Laurie Viera Rigler read from her excellent and amusing novel, "Confessions of Jane Austen Addict." After I finished it, this beefy idiot turned to me and said, "Hey, you should draw a tattoo on her!! Like thorns or razors or something... Hur hur!" I looked him in the eye and said disdainfully as I could manage: "Tattoos are so 1990s." Chastised, this gentleman only mumbled: "I was joking."

I wonder what Jane Austen would make of that...

Yeah... and what gets me, is that he clearly thought he was being very clever and amusing. He was this big aging parrothead who kept whipping out his cell and yakking about whatever peripheral job he had in entertainment... He was there with his wife, who was this fiftyish schoolmarmish librarian type, who clearly had talked him into attending this chick-lit fest. Gah!

That's Regency dress for you, you know? The whole nightgown look... ;P Not to mention it makes most women look pregnant! Most of the times, you have to have the figure of Gwyneth Paltrow to carry it off...
