This fall the Metropolitan Museum of Art has hosted an excellent exhibit in the Costume Institute: Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire. When a coworker told me about, I about had a nerd-gasm, and Billy and I were traipsing up to the museum practically the next weekend. For anyone with an interest in historical fashion, it’s a must-see stop (but hurry! It’s only on display through February 1st!). The exhibit gave me lots of new inspiration for Moira in Unhallowed Metropolis, especially considerations of what to do with her fashion as she moves farther from the British culture that raised mourning to an art form.
