Pride and Prejudice- the Netherfield party
Darcy from a remarkably similar angle as the previous page. D'oh!
The Netherfielders entering the Merryton Assmebly. From left to right: Mr. Charles Bingley, Caroline Bingley, Mrs. and Mr. Hurst, and Mr. Darcy. Again...ugh I feel like I;m gonna get creamed over this. When I signed up for this project, I had no idea that Pride and Prejudice has such a huge fanbase- it puts eveyr other fandom I've seen to absolute shame. Think Transformers has a very demanding fanbase? Hah- wait until you sattend a gathering of hardcore Austenites. I found out the hard way because my landlady at the time was one. I lheard more about Regency England than I could ever remember.
I've been watching several versions of Pride and Prejudice, as well as Sense and Sensibility and Mansfield Park, I bought Regency House Party from PBS videos, and I've started reading Persuasion ( might have to download that too if I can't find the DVD here). With all this research it's still hugely difficult to place myself in that setting. My comic, unfortunately, will not be 100% accurate, but hopefully I'll get the Austen "flavor" right...
I keep putting it off but I MUST comission a Regency-style dress so I can cosplay as Charlotte Lucas!!! Just a simple white muslin gown should do it. And a lacey bonnet is an absolute must!!!
