Lavender Hanfu

Thursday, April 02, 2009

I recall after making my asian dress paintings, someone noted that the Chinese qipao/cheongsam isn't really a traditional costume - it's fairly modern (according to wiki, it was created in the 1920s). I must've overlooked the true Chinese traditional dress because I probably had the qipao in mind once I started out, and only researched that. Well here's the real deal, the Hanfu - less sexy, but more elegant, and the dress that influenced a whole bunch of other asian costumes like the Korean Hanbok and Japanese Kimono.

I should have referenced Mulan, where she indeed wears a hanfu at the start of the film.

Reflection is probably my favourite Disney animated song that is sung. Here's the French version cause it sounds just as nice, with lyrics that are more interesting than the English version, and it even lip syncs well.
