    Post Your Traditional Dress (Image heavy)

    I was looking up Indian tribal costumes, admiring how beautiful they are, and I thought, "Hey, I wonder if my ancestors wore anything that looked really cool."

    Short answer: No.


    About 25% Alsace-Lorraine.
    What the hell is up with this headpiece?



    This isn't the only variety. There are bonnets. And ribbons. It mainly gets worse and worse.

    How did they even make that kind of dark, dark dye?

    Maybe 50% Spanish. Let's go with Madrid.

    The Chulapa dress is not bad. That is a doable silhouette. Bright red rose on top tied with a diaper-sized kerchief, why the hell not?



    Note: Almost all the "traditional Madrid costume" pictures I could find just look like contemporary people stepping out to a fancy dress festival kind of drunk. In other words, very similar to Metairie-style Mardi Gras. In other words, it feels like home. Cousin Seena, is that you?

    At least one ancestor was Basque (who incidentally married a Chocktaw woman, so like every other person in the southeastern US I have a trace of native blood).



    Almost looks Greek. Not spectacular, but not bad.

    Then 25% western Ukrainian.

    ...Oh now this is what I'm talking about.



    I really like the embroidery.



    ...So apparently all Europeans have traditionally really, really, really been into bold, contrasting black, red, and white.
    Too bad, Lady Une. You were far too lenient.
    As a soldier, yes. But as a civilian I lived an austere life.

    As much as I'm ashamed of the roots of my father's side, I have to admit boer women were pretty cool.
    On my mother's side, Galician.

    I think skip had a huge fondness for Indian tribal costumes too. They really are spectacular.

    The most beautiful paintings in existence today are the ones which were not painted by anyone.

    As a dual national and also having grandparents from four of the countries shown below, I'm all over the place, I have a kilt on one leg and a sheep on the other, also a leather jacket covering a tweed one.
    Put all of these people into the teleporter from the fly and have some fleshly glob come out the other side. Kiiiill meeeeee!

    I heard white people are part Neanderthal.

    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.
