The men look different, but the ladies look really similar.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Good grief! the style is two centuries ahead of Tudor! And those tacked-on sleeve additions don't match.

My monitor at the office is poor. Do I see a tan line on her bosom?

@MLE, I thought it odd for a Tudor dress.

You're right, this time-travelling Tudor lady has been sunbathing in a halter bikini top by the looks of it :D

I thought so. I don't recall it being so noticeable in the other renditions.

Those are some pretty big sleeves. What might somebody where a dress like that to if they weren't time travelling?
