- 1-20: Cranford (2007), submission for [livejournal.com profile] costume20in20 
- 21-27: Island at War, Bernhard and Angelique

   


Finally had time to make a few other icons besides my monthly 20in20. This time they are from Bernhard and Angelique, a couple from the series Island at War, that I also posted two picspams of earlier (here and here). Angelique is a local girl from the Channel Islands who lost her father during the invasion of the Germans. She meets a friendly German pilot, Bernhard, and despite their differences, they fall in love. It's a story of love against all odds, played very well by the two actors Laurence Fox and Joanne Froggatt (who was playing maid Anna in Downton Abbey)

Cranford, this month's claim for [livejournal.com profile] costume20in20 is just beautiful. It is a prime example of how great the BBC is at making period drama's: wonderful actors, beautiful historic setting and costumes, moving storylines. And it's very funny too! It was a joy to icon this.

 

No woman is the equal of a man - she is his superior in every single case )

New icons from some lovely period dramas! And my first 20in20 entry. I very much enjoyed doing the themed icons, it 'forces' you to work with caps you would not easily have chosen otherwise IMO.
