Lucreita's clothes are now much more suitable for the fashion of her original period of time. (which is from 1800 to 1818) Her dresses however are still pretty simple, because she never wanted to live a life of wealth and thus only charishes a small amount of gowns.
Every dress has it's special memory connected to it and Lucretia holds on to them with all her heart.
Her first, very staid dress is one of many that belonged to the orphanege of the Ursulinen (a certain group of nuns, wiki's gonna tell ya). It is pretty comfortable and perfect when she's up to do some housework or stable cleaning.
The followed four are pretty much what she would wear for the four seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Her Spring gown was a gift of her mother to give her a little fashionable look, since most of her clothes back then looked kinda... dull.
You may know the Summer dress from another picture I made of her, it is one of my favourites so far, simple, yet elegant and delicate. Almost like a wedding dress for a puppet. It is soft, yet quite tough material, since she loves to wear it a lot.
That Fall gown is simple, like the casual townspeople of Prussia back then, yet its colours are very bright and rich. The perfect dress for a nice walk through the landscape while enjoying the beautiful colours of the leaves and grass. Her Winter cape is warm and fluffy, yet on a very cold winter night she might still hold tight to a certain stranger who embraces her careless and youthful nature with a dirty grin on his face.
When your first impression of the following set was: "Huh... it is rather strange for her to wear boy's clothes." Then you are 100% right! It was a stupid idea, but Lucretia could not resist to follow her "friends" advice to escape her prision home, to follow him and see the true beauty of the capital city. But some people even have strange interest in young boys, rather than little girls.
Last of them (finally) is her very delicate opera costume. She looks like a little disney princess and men such as women love it. Making her look even more like a doll, she somehow enjoyes the attention she's getting through it, but only as far as it comes from the people she cares about. But a certain french man, who had dropped an eye on her, could not resist to imagine to snatch her away from a ball, just so he could take her back to his homeland, where they would be together forever.
Needless to say that his death was inevitable after the circumstances, yet the watchdog's priority was to first optain his girl and then kill the frenchman. (getting stabbed by his blessed sword however, was not part of the plan)
Gosh, to many clothes, to many clothes, and the f*ck even more to come! >BC

Lucretia (c) *Split-Heart
Lucretia was born in Koenigsberg of old Prussia, which was terribly destroyed during WW2 and is now known as Kaliningrad, which belongs to Russia! C:
Believe me, I made my researches and I am well aware that some of ther costumes might contain influences from other cultures/countries. Her last gown for example is pretty much french and her winter gown is very german like. xD She is a whole mix up of styles, but that's probably because I couldn't decide on one style for her, gosh I just LOVE the costumes of the early 19th century!! OTL
You're a damn skillful, freakin' Genius!!! All of these look amazing ( And Mephisto's ones are even better!)
"The difference between intelligence and stupidity?

You know I suck for details very much and I am so amazed by the details you can find on costumes of the early 19th century, I can hardly put them all into her costume sheet, srsly!! To amazing for me! OTL Damn, that's why I am still quite unsatisfied with my work... anyway, let's see how the rest will look like. *derp
Thank you so much for your love babe! yay!
I adore every single one for their design and the beautiful details!
Lovely color choices and I can't wait to see more!!!
