The Best-Dressed Way to Say Goodbye

A show of mourning clothing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art reveals how high fashion dramatically presented itself at 19th-century funerals.

All-black attire hasn’t always been reserved for coffee shop poets and champagne-sipping fashionistas. Up until the turn of the 20th century, it was almost exclusively a sign of mourning: women publicly showing respect for the loss of a loved one.

But, somewhere between the fury of the industrial revolution and women’s liberation, the tradition itself died out, leaving only a brief implication that lingers in graveyards and funeral services with fleeting significance.

Now, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is revisiting the trend, taking visitors back to black with the debut of the Anna Wintour Costume Institute’s first fall exhibition in seven years. Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire, which opens [Tuesday, October 21st], explores the custom of mourning dress from 1815 to 1915.

The little black dress is a staple of the modern woman’s closet, but, for years, black attire signalled that the wearer was in mourning. A century’s worth of bereavement clothing will be on display next week at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute.

YES! New stage still-and it’s a big file! The top photo discovery from the stage stills of “The Secret of Sherlock Holmes” at the Wyndham Theatre, is the largest and most high definition photo scan I’ve found on the Internet yet, with the exception of the more well-known second color still below.

These stage stills keep popping out of unknown corners of the Internet, usually out of forums.  It’s gotten to the point where I’ve found the majority of the entire Pritchard Archive floating about in the dark corners of cyberspace, in Japanese photography collections, in inactive JB fan forum threads and on archived fansites that went inactive more than 10 years ago.

I do believe my newly discovered top photo is the retrospective in “Secret” where Holmes drops his disguise in Watson’s practice in “The Empty House”, leading up to asking Watson’s forgiveness for disappearing for three years after Reichenbach.  It brought me to tears just listening to it after doing the restoration on the sound file, which I posted on my SoundCloud.

AU Bucky has trouble leaving the Winter Soldier behind him, and Steve has just as much trouble reacquainting himself with his best friend. Bucky sits lost in his thoughts most days, so Steve fills the silence as best as he can with stories from their childhood, never knowing if anything is getting through. Bucky remains unresponsive and Steve starts to lose hope, until one morning, he wakes to a piano being played.

"Bucky?"

"I…I remember. That story you told me. About how I would play the piano for you and your Ma at Christmas. But I…I don’t know, it doesn’t sound very good. Maybe I don’t really remember all of it, but I’m trying."

"No, you remember everything. You were never a very good musician Buck, we just didn’t know how to break it to you."

"…..Punk."

"Jerk."

In the secluded Dutch territory of Sleepy Hollow, nebbish schoolmaster Ichabod Crane competes with the town hero for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the 18-year-old daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel’s farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball.

No, but it’s TOM MISON READING IT. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.

HE DOES IT IN THE VOICE AS WELL. THE ONLY THING BETTER WOULD BE HIM READING IT IC AND MAKING SNARKY COMMENTS
"Well, this is the basest fabrication. Katrina would be most amused to learn of her supposed age when we met and as for mine own depiction! I do not venture as to comment on it, believing such an action to be crass, but rather I leave you to judge for yourself as to its accuracy."
