Sunday Silliness: Victorian Dress Espionage

My friend was trying to come up with a video game proposal, and I jokingly suggested one of those dress-up games they make for little kids, but with Victorian dresses. And then I decided this was a really good idea and spent an hour daydreaming about it, and I thought I’d share the results here!

You are a top seamstress in London, and your client, the high-fashion Lady What’s-Her-Face, has worked with you to design the most innovative, fantastic dress ever seen. Unfortunately, your rival is trying to steal your design and ruin both your reputation and Lady What’s-Her-Face’s! She intends to make a similar dress for her own top client, Lady So-And-So!

Your job is to travel London, seeking only the finest fabrics, trims and notions, without having your designs stolen by Lady So-And-So’s henchmen. Fight off spies and pickpockets with your parasol, sew on trim neatly and gather bustles, get Lady What’s-Her-Face to stand still for fittings, all before the Queen’s ball at the end of the month! The clock is ticking, and this dress will require all of your skills!

Bonus mini-game: Lady What’s-Her-Face invites Lady So-and-So for tea! Sneak as many insults as possible into polite conversation without causing a scandal!
