For all of you asking about good costuming resources in regards to my historical Disney princesses, here's an initial list:

ON THE INTERNET!
Demode Couture (There are so many links I could post that are already compiled and organized beautifully on Kendra VanCleave's site.  Absolutely worth your time.) demodecouture.com/links/
The Costumer's Manifesto (cluttered but deep, lots of good links hidden away in the fray) www.costumes.org/
Wikipedia (surprisingly useful!  Great for when you're trying to initially pin down a period.) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_…
For some unadulterated extant dress porn, Tumblr is a fantastic point of reference:
oldrags.tumblr.com
defunctfashion.tumblr.com
omgthatdress.tumblr.com
yeoldefashion.tumblr.com

BOOKS!
Some great overview/survey books:
A History of Costume www.amazon.com/History-Costume…
What People Wore: 1,800 Illustrations from Ancient Times to the Early Twentieth Century www.amazon.com/What-People-Wor…
What People Wore When: A Complete Illustrated History of Costume from Ancient Times to the Nineteenth Century for Every Level of Society www.amazon.com/What-People-Wor…
Fashion (Taschen 25th Anniversary) (amazing extant gowns) www.amazon.com/Fashion-Taschen…

Any and all of the "fashion in detail" books:
Nineteenth Century Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Nineteenth-Cent…
Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Seventeenth-Eig…
Fashioning Fashion: European Dress in Detail, 1700 - 1915 www.amazon.com/Fashioning-Fash…
Underwear: Fashion in Detail www.amazon.com/Underwear-Fashi…
Dress in Detail From Around the World www.amazon.com/Dress-Detail-Ar…

For sheer variety during the Victorian/Edwardian eras, any photographic books or collections of fashion plates are great:
Victorian and Edwardian Fashion: A Photographic Survey www.amazon.com/Victorian-Edwar…
Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from "La Mode Illustree" www.amazon.com/Victorian-Edwar…
Victorian Fashions and Costumes from Harper's Bazar, 1867-1898 www.amazon.com/Victorian-Fashi…

I'm sure I have more (I know I have more, in fact), so I'll try to keep updating this on a regular basis. :)

Thank you so much. 
I was actually going to ask you if you for this same information so I could research for an idea I had for a character dress design I'm working on.

You wouldn't happen to have resources on ancient/medieval Japan would you? (Specifically the Sengoku Period?)

This is seriously what I've been looking for! Thank you for putting this out there <33

Google Images is NOT helping me, and I'm trying to find traditional dress references of the Ottawa tribe. Any tips?

I feel for you. It won't be long and people will be bugging you for Anna. Do you ever regret making the Historical Disney Characters?

Oops! Sorry about that. This was supposed to be on your front page in the comment area. Stupid cellphone. What I get for messaging from it.
