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:

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!

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!

Fantastic decals! I had a go again today, but really couldn't think of anything nice and simple to make, I've already made what I wanted. X-D Yours look very nice and I'd like to see them on a minifig. *sweet*  *y* *y*

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!  ;-) )

Allrighty, then.

Cardianl- Found some pictures, and I'll make double breasted for higher officers, and single breasted for normal officers.

Goldiegs- You want any particular designs, in addition to generico gangsters?

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.

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.)
