"Hi! i was wondering how you and Regency rose and Victorian violet and the whole group got your sites to be like they are. I'd love to make mine like all your just with 1920s and 30s pictures and blogs. I just signed up for this website so Im not sure how to do things on this site. If you could respond whenever that'd be great! thank you!! :D"
Hi! I actually run all those historical blogs myself (the Edwardian, Regency, and Victorian ones, and an 18th century one too, although I don’t update them anymore because it got a bit much!) — Carolina Violette is my main blog and then I added them on as extras.
But as far as the other things go, I found layouts I liked for each of them (there’s a link to the blog who made the layouts somewhere on each of my blogs, the layouts are just code that makes the blog look nicer) and then I found several blogs that post a variety of historical pictures from movies and museums. You can see the links to those blogs on my historical blogs, under each post it says where I got the picture from. There are historical fashion blogs that post pictures of clothes from a lot of different time periods. One of my favourites is http://fripperiesandfobs.tumblr.com/ and another popular one is http://omgthatdress.tumblr.com/ and they both use tags (or labels) on their posts, so you can search them by what period you’re interested in.
I hope that helps and don’t hesitate to ask for more help if you need it or something isn’t clear! Learning more about history through tumblr is really fun!

Beige silk tulle with cotton lace; trimmed with cotton tulle, buckle, and ostrich feather.
A very impressive hat trimmed with a large feather. At the beginning of the 20th century extremely big hats with fancy decorations created distinctive silhouettes. Feathers of rare birds had been used for hat ornaments since the end of the previous century. As hats grew in size, greater use was made of ostrich and peacock feathers, which are large but light.
