Well, ok, so long as it’s for Science, here are some of my sketches. Believe it or not, these are among the least messy ones I could find in my great, teetering stack of roughs. Sometimes I’ll draw up to ten pairs of legs or arms on a character before deciding which pair to go with (I think there’s some evidence of that in the sketch of the pyramid-headed gentleman on the bottom left).
One habit I really need to cultivate is roughing out a character’s skeletal structure before drawing the clothing over the top. As it is, I constantly catch myself putting knees in places where knees have no business being.

What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
