I feel a bit full of Versailles at the moment, so I need to write it out. I’m sorry if you feel like I’m teasing you. I’d love to discuss all this with you! But I can always return to this later. There are spoilers up until episode 4 under the cut, so please, don’t look!

Generally it seems like the budget has been beefed up. There are more extras and a lot more fabric and decorations in the background, making the overall look very lush and rich-looking. The costumes are still good, if not a perfect re-creation of 1670’’s fashion. But it’s clear a lot of thought has gone into how people look, and there is also a marked change in women’s gowns and hair, which is nice as fashion did change, and time do pass. I also crave Chevalier’s dressing gown.

Speaking of time, the season begins a very short time after the last season ended, not four years later. The first season really cover four years, but it’s not very clear, and easy to miss. It’s clear if you read the novelization, but that’s about the only good thing in it. Don’t read it.
