  • High society female characters in Dishonored wear pants as part of formal wear.
  • An amusing scene in the Pocahontas sequel. Her wearing contemporary (Anachronism Stew) underpants looks less revealing than her usual native american bikini, yet her british handler gets flustered all the same.

    ^ I agree that it would be most helpful. I can't visualize it at all.

    Anachronism Stew: With female clothing!

    Well I guess there might be some worth in this page but as much as I would like to bash the portrayal of women in media TV Tropes is not a complaint site. You have to explain what purpose this page would have when we already have the Anachronism stew page.

    Vika from Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn is a good one though I am not sure if she would make a good image since the wings make her look sort of inhuman (and thus handwavable. That is not the case but it might not be a good image) but before we go further, how about we stick to the fact it looks like the same as another page just more specific as of now.

    Why limit this to women's clothing? Anachronistic clothing has a long and hallowed tradition in art.

    ^ Agreed, just make it an "anachronistic clothing" trope. Also, since Dishonored is speculative fiction, I don't think it counts as an anachronism.

    • The Zeroth Law Of Trope Examples: The works of Shakespeare were originally performed, as was the standard in Elizabethan theatre, in contemporary dress—for example, no one in Julius Caesar would have been wearing a toga. Many people today complain about what they view as the recent phenomenon of staging Shakespeare in anachronistic costumes, when in reality it's Older Than They Think.

    That's still Anachronism Stew: With Clothing, that's still The Same But More Specific. (Ye Olde Pantsuit is a good title though).

    Just what is this trope?

    Well, Anachronism Stew is pretty example-heavy, and undoubtedly some of those examples involve clothing. Why not just make another subtrope?

    Why make another subtrope? What about this trope is implied not in the broader use? The Elite Zombie, for example may not be in a story with "zombies" and an elite zombie is the same idea but may not be identical to the Elite Mook. And elite zombie is a page I do not even care for.

    Because Anachronism Stew is more than just a few anachronisms, limited to a specific area, it's lots and lots of them.

    One good example:
