Madame Percy | c. 1910In the early 20th century, cultivated women regarded pastels and muted shades as refined and “lady-like,” while bright colors seemed “vulgar.” Tastes would soon change, and after about 1910, vivid colors increasingly came into fashion. This aqua silk, however, is still muted by a layer of black net and ivory lace.
more interesting alternatives to the typical ~sexy suave evil gentlemen~ vampires:
- vampires who use their shape shifting/magical glamor abilities to explore gender identity/presentation/protect themselves from societal norms that could be harmful or get in their way
- vampires who suffer chronic pain from injuries they got as humans that didn’t heal right
- vampires with possibly outdated prosthesis because while they have a healing factor they can’t regrow limbs
- child vampires whose fangs fall out/regrow every couple decades because they’ll always be baby teeth
- poc vampires who adapt better because they’re less sensitive to sunlight/have vastly different ethereal characteristics than “I am a marble statue with shiny eyes”
- vampires who have trouble maintaining their animal forms and/or accidentally turn into wolves/mice/bats in the middle of a conversation
- vampires who love modern technology and gadgets and take to them better than humans do
- vampires who lisp because their fangs are too big/uneven for their mouth
- vampires who are really concerned about how short they’re starting to seem compared to modern humans
