Ashtray and Jade Porcelain 烟缸与青瓷 is the side story of The Disguiser that was recently published with the drama-version of the book, set when Ming Lou (Jin Dong), Ming Cheng (Wang Kai), and Wang Tianfeng (Liu Yijun) were still in Paris. I want an extension of this as The Disguiser movie so much.

This week, we take a look into a subject I have been avoiding Han dynasty-inspired clothing and clothes pre-dating the Tang dynasty. Therefore, for those of you who have been keeping track, we will be making a loop around in the timeline… and just in time since this period kind of correlates with Qin’s Moon and The Legend of Miyue‘s rough time period.
More pictures and information below the cut.
The Legend of Miyue will be releasing on November 30th. Starring Sun Li, Liu Tao, Huang Xuan, Jiang Xin, Ma Su, Gao Yunxiang, Alex Fong, etc., more intrigue coming to you soon while we debate how female protagonists seem to be so lucky with men despite having to survive in the confines of the palace… but Liu Tao has wicked stills looking evil.

December 18 will see the release of Mojin-The Lost Legend (鬼吹灯之寻龙诀), an adventure/thriller film previously titled The Ghouls. The cast, which includes Chen Kun, Shu Qi, Huang Bo, and Xia Yu, recently graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and even though the cover itself is not that eye-catching, I had to share the rest of the pretty.
Strap yourself in for another Qing dynasty drama during Yongzheng‘s reign, starring Hou Mengyao, Zhang Tianyang, Winston Chao, Christine Ng, Jin Zehao, Zheng Yuanyuan, Wang Keda, Qian Xuan, Yang Mingna, Zhao Yanan, and Bai Haitao in A Beauty’s Fragrance 美人香.
More stills and (WARNING!!) spoilers below the cut.
This week, we take a look into more Republican era-inspired clothing from Mr. Chen’s Chinese Photo Studio 陳先生的復古照相館.
Next week, we may do a loop-de-loop and start as far in the beginning as we can in the Chinese history timeline in terms of clothing and available pictures and then work our way to where we started in the Tang dynasty. This coincides nicely with the release of a couple dramas such as Qin’s Moon and The Legend of Miyue. Strap yourselves in, boys and girls.

Pretty soon, I am going to run out of titles involving Border Town Prodigal and stills but in the mean time, you guessed it, more were released. Starring Zhu Yilong,Ye Qingbin, Qiu Xinzhi, Zhang Xinyu, Chai Biyun, Vincent Jiao Enjun, Gong Mi, and Zhang Junning, this batch of stills seems to have a couple more non-major characters in it.
