Hey all! In a long absence, I've been cooking up some new decals. They may not be specifically pirate, but they're English Regency/ French Empire clothing.

The Regency lasted from 1810 to 1820, but the styles it comprises lasted from the 1790's to 1830. The style fo the time was similar enough to the previous Georgian/Rococo period that Pirate builders like yourselves could use them for Gentry or the like.

Now, the reason it's been posted he is for 2 reasons:
1) That the thread will get more traffic
2) An Admin/Mod could change the title of the Victorian clothing thread to:
Title: Norrington's Fine Minifig Clothiers
Description: Est. 2007

Here's the link: Norrington's Fine Minifig Clothiers *cough, cough admins*

Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Wow, I've made some torso's as well, but not so nice as this one. Can I use him?
You have a very sharp eye for detail! Especially the bow tie looks so great!

Keep up the good work!  :thumbup:

Thank you. Of course you can use it and recolor it, but please give credit where credit is due.  :pir-blush:

Maybe. Is this the type of coat you're talking about?

I'll see what I can do, but it doesn't look too accurate. The straight across seam on coats didn't come about 'till 1810, and by that time wigs and knee-breeches had gone out of fashion (not sure about that het, either. Early top hats exsisted, but they didn't look like that.)
