What do you get when mixing Abominable Salts and Surface-Silk Scrap?
A bit of new lore.

"Clothing in nineteenth-century Europe and America was so thoroughly dangerous, it’s amazing anyone survived."

How absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing - the Intense Notary will take care of this... wink

Now I finally understand Professor Stark saying "Don't touch me, I'm poisonous!" in FLINT... must've worn lots of green gowns in her youth wink

Might also explain why London's best professional assassin is the Woman in Green.

Seriously though, this is a horrible way of dying: "She vomited green waters; the whites of her eyes had turned green, and she told her doctor that everything she looked at was green. In her final hours, she had convulsions every few minutes until she died, with 'an expression of great anxiety' and foaming at the mouth, nose and eyes."

... basically turned into a living sack of poison. Cantigaster, anyone?

I guess that's why the Last Constable isn't present in Carnelian Coast despite fleeing there. She's busy stuck between convulsions and semi-dead while her father grieves in London.

Poisoned gowns had been "popular" at Versailles. The whole "kill yourself to be pretty" had a long history; white lead for a pale face goes back to the Romans.

A pity, really. Even being born in the upper crust of society still leads to horrible poisoning.
