Very interesting ;)

Getting dressed during Victorian times sounds like quite the hassle. This was a rather enlightening experience to say the least, because I knew about the elaborate fashion, but I was unaware of the certain intricate matters of Victorian fashion, so this quiz of sorts was quite informative and helpful.

I also found the pictures in this to be utilized well and they were pleasant to look at too. The pictures certainly went well with the information that was being provided.

Though this doesn't offer much in the story department, I feel that this does a fine job as a quiz and providing some genuinely fascinating information about another era and how fashion has both evolved and continues to do so even now.

In short, I found this to be quite the enjoyable read. I really wouldn't mind seeing a series of games like this that explores fashion of the different eras, because I do think that such information can be both useful to know and certainly fun to read about.

Well researched and interesting :) Also a rather original topic, I can honestly say I have never before in my life wondered in what order a Victorian lady put on her clothes in the morning :)

Hurray! I'm a proper lady! Now to enjoy a long day of intense diarrhea (caused by the poisoned dye in my headdress), stomping out the fires that catch on my highly flammable cotton dress, and eventually dying of lead poisoning due to all the lead white paint I cover my face with... Isn't history fascinating? ^_^

Lovely and fun, and, as stated in the game, most of it was pretty logical. However, the writer made a point of saying that corsets did not cause damage or need to be laced super tight, then ended it by saying that hopefully the corset wouldn't cause a backache! Don't people with scoliosis often have to wear corset-like contraptions? I would think that they are essentially like back braces--unless you wear them too tight, which the narrative said women of the period did not do.

Very linear, and I'm not sure there's a plot, but entertaining nonetheless.

Slightly, just a bit slightly more fun than homework.
