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.

A list of Finnish words that tell you something about Finnish culture

depressingfinland:

acebutt:

- Kekkuloida = to prance or just hang around naked (yes, the word includes the presumption that you are naked)

- Örveltää = to be really drunk and do whatever you do when you’re really drunk, like crawling in a ditch somewhere on all fours

- Perskärpänen (literally “ass fly”) = a person who keeps following you without you wanting them to

- Röhnöttää = to sit with a bad posture or lie around because you are bored, lazy, or tired 

- Paskahalvaus (literally “shit paralysis”) = the state of being really fucking scared or startled

- Änkyrä = a person who’s very reluctant to change their own, usually backwards and bigoted views

- Änkyröidä = a verb derived from the previous noun

- Raivoraitis (literally “rage sober”) = a person who never drinks alcohol and might be very passionate about it

- Yrmy = a person who’s always grumpy or angry

- Perskannikka (literally “ass end-of-a-loaf-of-bread”) = a slang word for “buttock”

- Vongata = to repeatedly and annoyingly ask for sex from someone who’s not interested (i.e. to be a Nice Guy)

- Könsikäs = a big, handsome, masculine man that you find attractive

- Puliukko = a man who spends most of his time wandering about drunk, smells bad, and might be homeless

Feel free to add to the list. :D

I’d add there one thing that’s common word in my family but I’m not sure about the others:

-Örnöttää = being alone in a very distant place such as a summer cottage, not wanting to anyone disturb and being really grumpy even thinking about the possibility of anyone to come visit you.

Why do people so badly want to believe that Oscar Wilde and Walt Whitman were attracted to women? Why do people want so badly to believe that Sappho was attracted to men? Really think about why you want this so badly.

Why do you want to erase bisexuality? Really think about why you want this so badly.

I am not okay with the lack of continuity for Goofy’s real name

I don’t know what I was expecting, but this is bullshit.

I AM NOT OKAY WITH THE LACK OF CONTINUITY

goofy changes his name ever few years for the purpose of tax evasion, he has been dodging the government for well over half a century and owes hardworking american citizens hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes
