    The beetle wing dresses are 🤌❤️

    "That dress is sooooo pretty, it’s to die for!"

    😬

    I love the beetle decor tbh



  5. Anime Weeb on September 12, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I think it was Sheele’s green and Paris green?



  6. lightgrey on September 12, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    You said "Arsenic" just as I was typing "Arsenic ( – and old lace)". Magic moment.



  7. Aerianna Jasper on September 12, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Ah, Victorian era sequins; beetle wings
    Those arsenic green dresses are honestly gorgeous

    I stayed with my bff at her grandma’s house once, and she had a whole picture made of hair on the wall. Her house was full of antiques and my buddy was like “oh yeah i know thats the creepy dead peoples hair picture”

    Arsenic paint and dye doesn’t seem like such a stretch when there are plenty of places today that still have lead paint



  10. Murphy Girl on September 12, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I love the beetle in fabric. I also think the feathers and birds are very cool, but I wouldn’t want to kill a bird for that. I think it would be okay however if say, you had a pet bird for years that then passed away, and in its memory you had it taxidermied and used in a special piece of clothing. I love it when there are opportunities for people to have momento mori.

    Please don’t forget nonbinary people in your intro. I love your content!

  13. Chase Williams on September 12, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Do you think there were working class women who, due to not being able to afford a fashionable and pretty bird, went around with pigeons on their head?



  14. Spacedude on September 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Butterfly’s could look good for the dresses but still gross



  15. Barbara Grigg on September 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I had actually read about hair jewelry and bird hats in a fictional book from that Era but it’s cool to see references for them



  16. miniamazingsophie on September 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    The famous peacock dress used insect wings to make parts of the feathers. Pretty cool



  17. Kyrtee SIVA ANANTHAN on September 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    More reasons as to why its my favourite era



  18. Denisa Luntraru on September 12, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    The decorations on a dress I had when I was little looked a lot like beetle wings, but I never noticed. Until now, when I remembered that dress…



  19. ToaFeron on September 12, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Who knew that the arsenic was _in_ the old lace?



  20. Asking Spot on September 12, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    In the insectarium, in New Orleans, they have a room with incredible varieties of beetles that are so inspiring!



  21. S Cosby on September 12, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    fun fact: in the us egrets and herons were almost hunted to extinction for their aigrettes or breeding plumes



  22. 「Dark Moon」 on September 12, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    "They wore dead birds on their heads"
    Me who has two pet birds:* crying *



  23. David Konevky on September 12, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    What I learned today: the graveyard industry in the victorian era would have been booming



  24. Knowledgeandbeauty on September 12, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    I would be the Victorian lady dying because all my clothes would be arsenic green.



  25. Mary Salibi on September 12, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    People still make jewelry out of hair, or even cremated remains. I really don’t find it all that odd honestly.



  26. Marzzzarella on September 12, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Aside from arsenic, are there other synthetic green dyes that they used that’s not toxic?



  27. Risspamplemoose on September 12, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This is very interesting! Thank you! I do agree that it is very sad that so many bugs and birds died for fashion.



  28. Ribbin O. Pinion on September 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    2020- "Oh, Tucker is 25, still lives at home, but that’s ok! Still so young and trying to find his way in life."

    1880- "I am 25, twice a widow, 3 children gone, one making it to 5 where he will work in a factory upon his 6th birthday- Wait…shit, he’s dead, too, DAMMIT. Onto husband #3, guess I better get to the seamstress to make black dress again. Wouldn’t be caught ‘dead’ in my other 2, so out of season!"



  29. French Cat on September 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Daughter:mother why do u always wear that bracelet
    Mother:it’s made from your dead fathers hair
    Daughter: it’s pretty…



  30. Simon D on September 12, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    what cookie is she eating. ive been searching all over the internet for the damn thing. pls respond im desperat. great video btw



  31. D:Games folder on September 12, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Birds on your hat? I did have one for a few seconds. A hawk landed on top of my beanie a few years ago, then flew off. This was in the middle of a busy city. I felt cool for a few moments. Also grateful i wasn’t being scalped by the hawk’s claws (it was a double-layer beanie).
    Those Victorian ladies who wanted a cruelty-free and lifelike bird ornament on their hats could have just trained a hawk to sit perched on their hats. Good against rodents in the barn too, i imagine.



  32. Gemstoned on September 12, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Celtic hair locks



  33. autXmn's daydreams. on September 12, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Call me a phycopath.. but I found nothing disgusting in these trends after I saw the actual things..

    Yeah I should probably stop..



  34. James tolson on September 12, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    You should make more video’s and cover more about Poland history, food and be a tour guide



  35. twisaesthetiXs on September 12, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    *THEY ARE LITERALY DYING FOR THEIR BEAUTY LOL*



  36. SilverEtoile on September 12, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    We have a bunch of hair jewelry, and one of them has a very intricate geometric design. It looks like they glued the hair into a sort of mat, then cut triangles and rhombuses from that, and made a sort of tiled design from it.



  37. Tanya Von Degurechaff on September 12, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    The CC *chef kiss*



  38. Enby_Author on September 12, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    This has 975, 975 views, just wanted to point that out have a great day



  39. Tabicat in the Hat on September 12, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I have a set of earrings made with beetle wings.



  40. ddollish on September 12, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    My birds started to freak out when you said “they would kill birds for their hats” or sm 😭✋-



  41. Michael Baggett on September 12, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    If you are gonna mention people chaining and wearing live beetles, they still do that and it’s disgusting. Bugs aren’t your toys



  42. thatlemonadeguy on September 12, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    It’s funny bc here in my country, jewelry made with hair is usually a form of love witchcraft lol



  43. Kait Christensen on September 12, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    ok, but can we talk about taking pictures with dead people???



  44. Annika Clemmons on September 12, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Before photographs, there was this different way of taking pictures that was a lot more expensive, so family members only took pictures of a person *after* they died, and they would send the pictures to external members. Kinda like Christmas cards!



  45. Evita Aslanidou on September 12, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Look into diet habits in order to look pale and slim like the dead!



  46. Eef E on September 12, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    I don’t know if it’s because your sick but your American accent sounded really good in this video! Also I mean that as a compliment but now that I think about it, it may not be one lol



  47. Gemstoned on September 12, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    they sure died if they got caught in a storm wearing an arsenic green dress



  48. Kampfkewob on September 13, 2021 at 12:00 am

    ‘Good mourning!’ must have been a standart greeting in the era



  49. iiclxudy on September 13, 2021 at 12:00 am

    -“man, I really wish looks could kill”.
    Victorian era: “Oh honey, they can”.



  50. anasofi3210 on September 13, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Taking into account Mercury was used in glue, specially for hats, and that it was only in the XX century when we discovered lead was poisonous (and even then it was a real battle for the scientist to prove it was, cause it was literally used to can food xd), I really think the arsenic is logical and that probably now a days we might be using something poisonous without noticing
