Hi! i remember seeing some crowns in fictional media and was wondering if you knew the correct term? It looks like a kokoshnik/tiara with a string of beads connected at each side, looping underneath the jaw. I don't know how to link pictures, so here's one my friend showed me: Apple White's Dragon Games Crown. Thank you for your time!
I don't think there's a term for it or if there is I don't know it. The ones I've seen are strings of pearls that aren't really connected to the tiara, they are just necklaces that the person is wearing draped from their head.
Nancy Langhorne Astor, Viscountess Astor - 1917 - This is more of a costume for the photoshoot and not something she would have worn to a formal event.
Tumblr media
Queen Marie of Romania - all between 1896 and 1924 - Most of these are costumes for photoshoots but as you can see in the bottom middle photo she also wore necklaces draped like this for regular gala events. Marie was a very theatrical dresser.
Tumblr media
I think the style is meant to be vaguely historical but I don't know what time period they are trying to emulate.

Not long after, they heard the whinge of engines; soon, two SUVs arrived. Out jumped not local police, but a horde: 15 men armed with bats and axes. The documentary crew broke for Bosutar’s car but couldn’t get the locks in time. The attackers pried the doors open, snapped the key, slashed the tires, and smashed the camera equipment. They beat Mocanu, trapped between the car and the mountainside, unconscious. They clubbed Dragolea in the face. The director dove down the nearby ravine, where he hid under the roots of a fallen tree and called the police, begging them to come with their sirens on. “I said, ‘They’re killing the journalists in the forest, and they are tracking me down,’” he recounted. “I knew cases where people had died in the forest, I saw axes around me. If someone didn’t call, we were going to die for sure.”

three romanian authors to read with ur dracula daily
dracula is an orientalist text conceived at the height of british empire, grounded in distortions of a region that stoker never visited. sadly (and unsurprisingly) i found very few romanian authors who have been translated into english online, so here’s a meagre list of recs:
1. luminița cioabă
romanian roma author, famous in romania as the daughter of bulibasha (the king of the roma nation), she forged her own path as a writer of short stories in the oral roma tradition which portray in vivid detail the history of the roma people of romania 
the birch grove
queen of the night and stone flower 
from her book, the lost country 
2. marin sorescu
from humble rural romanian roots, he wrote under the oppressive ceausescu government. in a national ironic tradition he very famously said: "Just as I can't give up smoking because I don't smoke, I can't give up writing because I have no talent." some of my favorite poems:
the sea shell (1983)
carbon paper (1980)
creation (1992)
3. paul celan
jewish poet from bucovina. i recommend this beautiful essay by ilya kaminsky, who like celan was forced to flee eastern europe due to antisemitism, deconstructing various translators’ attempts to adapt celan’s texts and experience of the holocaust. these are all poems from a 1971 poetry collection
all souls
language mesh and night

Friendly reminder that if you call Eastern Europeans ‘snowflakes’ for not laughing at your war memes, you’re not quirky, you’re just a fucking asshole.
And you don’t get to tell us to ‘take a joke’ about a war that is happening few km from our borders (for non Ukrainians balkans).
If the war is not affecting you, your families, your friends or your other close ones, stop the ‘but this is my coping mechanism 🥺’ bullshit.

The famous wooden spiral staircase of Peles Castle in Sinaia, Romania.
The castle was built between 1873 and 1914.
It is a real work of art! Absolutely beautiful!

since everyone is talking about politics and eurovision and beautiful songs and their meanings and so on and so forth, i just want to say this about moldova: despite a lengthy and incredible effort by the soviet union to completely erase moldova’s ties to romania, this year, some 30 years after the fall of the soviet union, moldovans are singing in eurovision about how when they go to romania, they feel at home. this is what their song is about, so i guess the moral of the story is that people’s spirits are not easily crushed

When you think about it, it's such a power move: no I'm not gonna sing in English OR my own language, I'll sing in yours
And what if Romania scores higher than Spain, what then? Whose language is it now?
