Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum


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.


HELP


OMFG

Omigosh I can finally share this!  At SPX last year, I was asked to draw something including the words “TOO KAWAII TO LIVE, TOO SUGOI TO DIE.”  Afterwards, Ananth and I asked if we could elaborate on the sketch and make it into some sorta design and then I did.
This is now available as both a tee and a print over at Topatoco if you’re interested!  And there’s the rest of our store at Topatoco as well.
