Sinology Sunday: January 31, 2016

We will probably be doing some Song Dynasty and Ming Dynasty posts for the next couple of weeks running up to releasing dramas set in those eras.  This week will be a continuation of last week’s Ming dynasty post from Mr. Chen’s Chinese Photo Studio 陳先生的復古照相館.  The Ming dynasty posts will be from a series following wedding traditions since Valentine’s Day is coming up.

More pictures below the cut.

Hanfu groups seem to work together so I apologize ahead of time in case there are any repeats.  Also, please understand that sorting Hanfu by era can be hard due to similar styles carrying over into different eras, lack of historical evidence or knowledge, and various other factors.

The following are some links that may help you get some background information.  Please let us know in the comment section if there are any other sites you may be able to recommend for more pictures.
