  • Um … they do know what happened with Anne and Henry, right? Spoiler Alert – not really the marriage happy couples should be modeling themselves after.

    Please don’t be foreshadowing. Although I’m pretty sure the exact ending – aka, Damon beheading Elena for allegations of sleeping with her brother so he can marry a blonde chick – won’t be happening. At least I really, really, hope not. Cause sad. And ew. And what?

  • Costumes/hair are super weak compared to those we’ve seen previously, kinda disappointed.

  • Eh Boring. Give me Stefan/Silas, Caroline, Jeremy….pretty much the rest of the cast is way more interesting.

    • No my friend, you are not! I was like. “….are you kidding me? This is a joke right?”

  • NO. No, no. The History degree in me is freaking out. I am aware that The Tudors took some liberties (and therefore everyone believes that these clothes were the norm), but Elena’s costume? Ugh, it is not accurate at all. And her hair should have a headpiece. At the least a crown, and the most a french style hood. Nothing about the silhouette of her dress is close to right (those sleeves?!). Disappointed, but I understand the CW’s insatiable need to make their actors sexy. Okay, that was semi-obnoxious of me, rant over.

    • But don’t you love what looks like a Georgian hairstyle in the background. I want to see that dress. :)

      • I could cry from how awful these costumes are. My favorite historical figure, Anne Bolyen (tied with Bonnie and Clyde) and her costume is atrocious! Ugh! I was so excited too!

  • They’re in college now. How can they keep having these themed dances? That sure doesn’t happen in college unless maybe you’re in a frat in which that still doesn’t happen.

  • A few sororities at the college I went to had themed parties all the time. Though usually they were just an excuse for the girls to dress as skimpy as possible and the guys never really dressed up :) But I guess we just have to go with it, since it seems to be the Vampire Diaries thing.

  • The costumes are pretty cool and looks great on both of them. They make a great couple! Can’t wait to see the episode. Looking forward to it.

  • I know this clothes are not historically accurate but they look hot and adorable together, love Delena

  • Lol….um yes why exactly Wld they dress Delena as Henry and Anne? I’m pretty sure that relationship ended with Henry giving orders to behead her with a sword for accusations of her sleeping with 6 other men…including her brother!!! Weird vampire diaries…Let’s hope she’s not planning to sleep with Jeremy but I’m all for Stefan! Lol
