Game the Fifth: Identify the Dress

I think this needs little explanation: just look at the pictures below and try to remember which characters the dresses belong to. To make it nice and scholarly, each correct guess will be worth 10 points, for a total of 100 if you get them all right.

I cut off more than just the head (haha... I make it sound as if I have decapitated them all...) to make the form of the actresses a little less identifiable. ;)

Guesses will be accepted through Friday, January 11th, and the answers will be posted the following day. I'll be commenting with your results throughout the week. I will accept second tries. (Maybe even third, if you're desperate. ;) )

2. Charlotte (at assembly ball)
3. Lizzy (at Netherfield?)
4. Mary (during Mr. Collin's 2nd visit)
5. Lizzy (during Mr. Collin's 2nd visit)

There! Hopefully I got them right! I was a little iffy on some of the scenes, but I think I have most of the characters correct.

Miss Marianne said...

The Elf,
Your second (well, third) guess for #9 was right. You now have 70 points. :)

Caroline L.,
Your answers were all correct! :) I think all the scenes were too, which aren't required for your 100 points but I did have fun reading them and seeing how well you know your scenes! ;)

Jane said...

1.Mrs Bennett?
3. Elizabeth Bennett
9. Lydia Bennett

Miss Marianne said...

Your new guess on #3 was right. You now have 80 points. :) 1 and 9 still incorrect.
