I love these! But this one especially: *wub*

Swallow tail coat with silk puff tie.

Any chance we can see it on a fig? What program do you use? If I had any criticism at all, it's that the first torso's dark blue vest is a little dark, it didn't show up well on my printer-although my printer is refurbished and I have opacity and hue problems with it |-/ . Also, I don't understand how the buttons on that jacket would work.

Other than that, they are really beautiful. Thanks for sharing them with us. *sweet*

Thank you. As for the first coat's buttons, it's double breasted, I just put the buttons a little to close to the edge. The third is my favorite to. Frankly, I might do some leg decals for pinstriped trousers, or maybe spats... *sweet* I am considering doing some female decals, such as boddices an thing like that. I use Paint.net

Here is my promise fuffiled:

Y'know, I've allways love the way peoples from long ago dressed. I was reveiwing notes from one of my classes, and my margins are filled with doodles of Rococo, Edwardian, and Victorian clothing...

They can use some work, but those gold lines are pocket-watch chains. Y'know, Lego should produce a Victorian Archtecture line. God, those houses are so beutiful... *wub*

*EDIT*

I finishe a design for a tailcoat, which features a long dark red cravat tied in the style of 1830's day/evening wear, a Camel Skin Prince Albert coat (Very popular during Victorian Times), and a decal for Victor Van Dort, the lead charcter in one of my favorite Tim Burton movies. The tail coat is my favorite!

These are some of the best you've produced Mr. Norrington.

It's nice to see this improvement in your work.

And I'm happy you've returned after your break ;-)

All righty, ready for the new batch? Well, be warned, only one is original. The rest are recolors.

A suit for an exscursion to the seaside:

Another alternate version of the Victor Van Dort Torso:

A brown tailcoat:

And some more rehashes:

And the new, and best:

Sweeney Todd's Perelli:

Expect Sweeney himself, and mabe Mrs. Lovett, perhaps Toby or Anthony.

EDIT:

I am still working on Sweeney's vest (The lapels are actualy very hard to do!), but I have done his apron, complete with the belt which holds his trusty, and slightly rusty razor!

You did such a great job, look at my new avatar! :-D

I did, though, modify it to match the official LEGO blue colour. I thought I'd post the modified ones here if anyone wants em' (don't worry, I'll give you the credit for the original version! ;-) )

Here's a picture of a Pirelli figure, too, so you can see what it'll look like:

Any chance of getting a Peeler (policeman) as who else will Holmes be able to impress if there aren't the fine members of the Met about.

Well, the Gangsters are still in progress, but here is my relatively simple version of a Victorian Peeler.

Thanks for those Norrington they look great. I'll post a fig as soon as I can get my hands on some more decal paper.

Now even Victorian Lego times can have 1 policman for ever two citizens.

Well, Here we go...

From Disney World's Haunted Mansion, a variable gold mine of Victorian Architecture, Costumes, and Interior Design, come Master George Gracey!

The original Portrait:

My Design, based on a large sketch of the painting I intend to paint and frame:

And some gangsters:

And, not sure how I went about making these, I guess I wanted to design some... curtains X-D I guess someone could stick them over a window, and it might look ok...

By, the way:

[...]not sure as to why i have victorian guys walking round my ww1 style town but still, loving the work

Actually, Victorian clothing was still very common from the turn of the century to about 1914. I recent unearthed a book filled with derougotypes of relatives, who I am told had a brewery in Wisconsion (Well, I am a good portion German) Before and during WWI. Heck, Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge both wore Victorian High Collars (very uncomfortable looking.)
