    The illustration in itself is amusing, but the caption is perfection.

  • Paolina

    That caption. I’m dying.

    It’s kind of sad that the history nut in me is saying “That’s not Victorian! It’s Colonial era at best, maybe Marie Antoinette Le Raptor?” Fun stuff either way.

    i think someone has done something to affect her honor and she is requesting a retribution.

  • Gordon Borland

    Now if only there could be a Victorian Velociraptor riding a Velocipede

  • Vian Lawson

    But, but … the underwear is all wrong for French pre-Rev; she’d need outrageous panniers and a bumroll, not hoops. Mind you, she’d rock a wig with live birds in it … wearing her descendants, as it were.


    Yes, colonial. Or maybe a Victorian velociraptor wearing colonial dress to a very fancy masquerade indeed, because that would be awesome.

    Your ideas interest me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

    Also, my spell-checker just suggested velocipede as a substitute for velociraptor, so obviously it’s an idea whose time has come.

    Playing a viola?

  • Gordon Borland

    Performing music by Vangelis ?

  • Gordon Borland

    The thinking Velociraptor’s Velocipede is available in all decent God fearing stores across the empire for only a crown and sixpence.

  • Lydia Dickson

    That’s true, and the sleeves and hoop would be consistent with a Civil War era dress that’s been made over as a Marie Antoinette costume. She found it in her grandma’s attic I’m sure.

    So it’s a old-style dress, styled after an even older type of dress?
