olde_fashioned: (read -- Vigee LeBrun)
A very large and very random batch of Regency and Jane Austen themed icons from various icontests. Some of these are a bit old, since I haven't posted an icontest dump in quite a while. ;-) Nearly all of the Jane Austen adaptations are represented, some art and fashion plates of the period, and there is also a Pride & Prejudice journal header and a matching friends only banner.

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

Another batch of costume drama icons that I made for various icontests, including both versions of Pride & Prejudice (1995 and 2005), various other Jane Austen adaptations, as well as some from The Prestige and Daniel Deronda. There is a P&P Friends Only banner of Jane Bennet (Rosamund Pike) as well, for good measure. ;-)

As always, never alter my graphics, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (S&S3 -- Elinor shelves)
My first official batch of icons from the new Sense & Sensibility. :-) Do I need yet another subject to icon? Not really, but oh well. ;-P It's too pretty to pass up.

Twenty icons of the Dashwood sisters, mostly Elinor. Sorry, no heroes this time around! ;-P

As always, my icons are not bases so do not alter, please credit/comment with the numbers if taking, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (JA -- P&P -- Jane & Bingley love)
Well, I've finally seen it! I've finally seen the duel!! 8-D *lol* And I must say, that the clever editing with the red sealing wax as "blood" was ingenious. I liked that very much.

I'm afraid I haven't much else to say, since this was pretty much what I expected, and I did like it, so I'll try to keep my snark to a minimum. *pause* Oh who am I kidding?? ;-P
Can you forgive me? Can you love me? )
olde_fashioned: (S&S2 -- Marianne)
At long last, we get to see the rest of the Complete Jane Austen Season! I thought it was very unkind of the PBS/BBC/whatever execs to torture us with such a huge gap between the adaptations. *pouts* But anyway, patience is a virtue. Or at least so I'm told. ;-P

Firstly, I obviously object to the "seduction" in the opening scene. What, is a Jane Austen story not attractive enough without "spicing" it up?? (Andrew Davies, I'm looking at you!) There is more to love than lust and eros. It was not as bad as I thought it might have been, thankfully. *wipes prudish sweat from brow*

Also, aside from my moral objections to such an addition, I find it highly and materially altering to the story, that we are given such a hugely crucial "spoiler" and clue to Willoughby's true nature so early in the story. We are supposed to be as ignorant as Marianne!! We are not supposed to view him with suspicion. Even the actor they chose makes me raise my eyebrows -- he's too "caddish" looking, in my opinion.

Elinor and Marianne are both well cast, IMO, and I like Elinor especially. I'm a little less fond of Marianne, possibly because I am comparing her too much to Kate Winslet. But seeing her performance once Willoughby breaks her heart will be much more "telling" than what we've seen so far. It's difficult for me to form a "just impression" when I've only seen half a story. ;-)
I am excessively fond of a cottage! )
olde_fashioned: (S&S2 -- Marianne)
A miscellaneous batch of costume drama icons that I made for various icontests, including both versions of Pride & Prejudice (1995 and 2005), both versions of Sense & Sensibility, (1995 and 2008), both versions of Northanger Abbey, (1986 and 2006) as well as some from North & South, Emma, Becoming Jane, Amazing Grace, Lady Jane, and a few others. As always, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

When the light begins to fade, and shadows fall across the sea... )
olde_fashioned: (S&S3 -- Elinor & Marianne)
It may be viewed here. I'm getting rather excited! (although if the rumours are true and Willoughby does seduce Eliza in the opening scene then I am going to be sorely dissapointed) But I like how this Elinor looks, and I love the idea of adding a duel. *hee*

Does anyone else think that they are trying to make this Marianne look like Kate Winslet in the 1995 S&S? Her hair, etc.? And the velvet dress she wears in the promo photo and the scene with Colonel Brandon and the hawk in this preview is allegedly the same dress Kiera Knightley wears to Pemberley. View and compare photos here.
