We are at the halfway point of The White Queen (2013) and the costumes are starting to bore me. On the one hand, people probably didn’t have constant costume changes in real life and re-wore their clothes extensively, but on the other, these characters are all some of the wealthiest and most powerful people of the era. I simply refuse to believe that they would still be wearing the same thing over and over and over … and over … year in and year out without any variation in style or styling. The other thing that bothers me, just from a viewer standpoint, is that because the show skips forward in time quite a lot (even multiple times in a single episode), the fact that everyone is wearing the same exact stuff they were wearing in the first episode, ESPECIALLY Elizabeth, it’s incredibly hard to track where you are in time because everything looks like it’s happened in the same week just judging by the costumes.
Finally, it’s giving me less and less material to work with. So unless the costume situation picks up in the next episode or two, I’m just going to finish out the series and recap any new costumes from the remaining eps in a single post. Because I’m not wasting any more words discussing the three blue gowns that Elizabeth has been wearing since the very first episode.
With that said…
This wraps it up for all the “interesting” costumes to discuss from episode 5. Have you been following along with our costume recaps for The White Queen (2013)? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
