      Witchcraft was introduced in the 19th century to the public by creatures like A. Crowley and Blavatsky and the likes as the "externalization of the occult" as ordered by Alice Bailey. Thus, if you google early witchcraft photos you'll find witches Victorian style. Which is where your association comes from.

    21:20 I don't really get the hate on Yen's clothing. Yes, it was modern and, the hair and make-up was also modern, but it's importnant to mention, that witches in the Witcher were the most fashionable as they obviously used magic to create the stuff or to just create an illusion.
    Saying that I'd actually apreciated if they took it completely over the top.

    Am I the only one who loved the costumes? I mean, its Fantasy and this is what we got: The whole range of fantasy costumes with so many beautiful details! Every region had its own influence and there were so many structural and textural details. It was so much more exciting and diversified than if they would have been stuck with just one era.
    Except the Nilfgard armor. It was terrible.

      I thought a lot looked cheap and thrown together. I don't mind that it's not historically accurate but it just looks ugly and ill fitting to me. As if it was a school play and they couldn't get enough costumes so they found cheap costumes and put their actors in it.

    The Witcher's armor is kind of off the mark. Leather or cloth with studs like that only existed in brigandines, when it was used as the base material to rivet articulated plates on the inside to create a type of plate armor, but that's not what it would have looked like. It looks like it maybe could have been meant to represent brigandine, but if those are meant to be rivets they don't quite look like it, an there are way too many, and they're randomly placed instead of systematically. If you just google some examples of brigandines you'll see the issue.
    They updated it for Season 2 and it looks more or less correct there. More like an early version of brigandine with less articulation, but separating the should segments like they did in that one is just a straight up mistake. In real armor each segment would be riveted to the same piece of leather so that they can be held together as they slide over/under each other with his movements without creating gaps that someone can stab into.

    The armor is terrible because you want weapons to deflect off and all those little creases are like the main problem with boob-plate instead focusing the attack into the armor cranked up to 11.

    Even if it's a fantasy series/film based on "medieval times" it still has to make sense. It doesn't have to be as historically accurate as something about actual historical figures/events, but it has to fit, nonetheless.
    "Fantasy" isn't supposed to be a magic word to free writers etc from accurate depictions/reality. Good fantasy needs to understand and show real/believable things and build upon that, no silly excuse creates better fiction.

    Costumes for this show were, “a total mess”. I enjoyed the rest of it, the story line etc. enough to read the books, but the costume designers clearly didn’t and they didn’t test the the costumes on the actors in the environment. I will bet the actor playing Yen had all kinds of problems with the costumes, especially props catching on that rope dress. I have heard that some changes were made for next season.

    Yennefer was so underwhelming in the series especially when you come from the game and the book. Truly they could have given her proper clothing; even her hair is too "modern" :( Truly, as with a lot of the comments, the costumes really lacked cohesiveness and even good tailoring :/ As Karolina mentioned and showed, a lot of the clothes looked like they were rushed or bought off AliExpress :(

    I disagree with your comments on the armor. We tend to forget that there are more than one kind of leather, some are soft and malleable and some are strong and stiff. Also, on most kinds of attempt injuries a more flexible armor can be about as good as a completely stiff one (because physics 🙃). Like, for example, there was a group of people in Latin America that used an armor made out of a fabric made of plant fibers, and when the Spanish got in contact with them those Spanish ended up changing their metal armors for the fabric armor because it was waaaaaaay lighter (less than half the weight) and just about 5% less protective, so it was a great improvement for those Spanish that used it.

    Calanthe's armour actually garbage. Flat chest will not protect from the impact. In fact curve in the brest section (not boobs like) would add real protection for heavy blunt weapon. Also i think belt must be higher. Oh ffs just watch metatron's vid or other history youtubers. But the concept artist who have designed nilfgaardian armor must be ... uh, i don't know do i want a man (or a woman) lose his (or her) job, but at least send him on courses or something like this...

    Some Roman armour was leather with overlapping plates , as was Chinese. It also had padded wool underneath. Reproductions have been tested to be effective in repelling arrows, so that is historically accurate, although the Witchers does not look like that.

    *rocks up 9 months late* I can kinda find the lack of cohesive fashion understandable if you take it that during the conjunction of the spheres, multiple cultures and peoples from different time periods (and universes ofc) were thrown together, and so there was no organic evolution of fashion on the continent.

    I think it makes a bit of sense for Calanthe to dress less extravagantly by choice since she wanted to give off her aggressive Lioness vibe. That she didn't dress Ciri in more elaborate dress like she seemed to do with Pavetta was odd to me, though.

    I'm really curious about what they are going to do with the outfits in the second season. Most outfits I kinda forgot about but I was absolutely a big fan of Ciri's main outfit and Geralt's outfit in the first episode with the cloak. Yennefer's outfits were all over the place. I feel like they were kind of experimenting with her outfits, especially because she has this big "make-over" scene so she has to really have a special style that portrays that she looks beautiful in this extraordinary way. They didn't quite find her style yet. I think they really need to work on silhouette and practicality with her outfits. More elegant, less modern and a bit more practical when she goes...mountain climbing.
    Or maybe they should add a scene where her dress gets stuck on a bush, I don't know. Would make me happy.

    Leather armor was probably much cheaper to make for those fighting with ranged weapons (like archers) and if treated and lined, was durable, comfortable, lightweight and somewhat protective. Metal armor is heavy af no matter how well made and I would guess that you didn't have every soldier able to wear it and fight except in heavy infantry situations. Freedom of movement had to be an issue as well as stealth and expense. I'm only guessing here from playing lots of fantasy video games and having an addiction to the SCA. 😎

    So the Elves and some other magical races in the Witcher universe are basically refugees because humans have pushed them out if their lands. I think that's pretty well communicated in their outfits as well as where the Witcher finds them and the conversation they had during their interactions.

    My issue with Nilfgardian (sp?) armour isn't that it would be totally ineffective. You can make good leather armour that protects well. The historically accurate armour would be basically a thickly and tightly woven jacket called a gambeson (surprisingly effective). Schmoes in your army would be in gambeson at best. The Nilfgardian armour design would just require waste of materials, and massive amount of time spent on a design that provides no additional value. So that armour would be needlessly expensive to use for you entire army. If they wanted to use it exclusively as careers.promote Culinary military dress or for the elites only, that would excuse the impracticality and expense. Why not spend that money on gambeson & chain mail like real history? Probably cheaper and definitely more effective.
