She is my people! :dress:

My mother was very pretty and Vivien Leigh reminds me of her.

It’s nice to see those in color. We had a Black and White tv when we were kids. Most people did. I am not sure when color tv came out… (googles it) Oh! 1975 were the first sets and color broadcasts!

We had a Sony Trinitron back in 1975 that you had to individually tune the stations and it only had 13 channels. It was State of the Art back then. It was also the year that Saturday Night Live debuted!
To bring this back on topic! that Land Shark outfit was the bomb! 70’s fashion! We all had those pants that Laraine Newman was wearing along with a baggy shirt with a big collar.

Aww! Poor Garrett Morris! (I forgot that ending!)

My mother said “Went with the Breeze.”

I’d like to know where they got the patterns for each of those outfits, and where did they get all that material, was it all silk too?


#130

Ok, now I’m waiting for this show :open_mouth:


#131

Yes, the fancy stuff historically was silk. (Who knows what the movie stuff is though, it could be cheaper polyester/rayon, etc.)

The long and flowy stuff is only suitable for indoor wear or in paved areas of gardens otherwise, the clothing would catch on everything. The cut of the outfits is standard men’s wear for wealthy men from before the Qing Dynasty which was the last one that lasted about 300 years - (Qing Dynasty clothing was an entirely different look and I hated that they forced the men to shave the front of their heads. The northern Qing were not Han people and had a different culture.)

As far as the embroidery designs go, that is the artistry of the embroiderers and fabric designers. Gorgeous stuff, ennit?

Military garb is shorter and more practical - usually below knee-mid-calf with wrapped leggings.
Peasants, like peasants everywhere, wore practical outfits in neutral colors. Their clothing was more likely to be hemp for working wear, but they may have had cotton or silk also. The styles and fabric type varied according to climate and ethnic group.

I love anything long and flowy - so romantic - and so gorgeous on our historical men!


#133

I really like the long hair. But I like long hair on guys as long as it is neat and clean. (Remembering all of those STINKY hippies from the old days of San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury district being a beacon for hippies. :nauseated_face: cough :grimacing: barf :face_vomiting: I think they were allergic to soap and water.)


#134

Oh I thought we were taking about costumes!!! hahahahaha!


#135

We were. AND - along with the outfits is the gorgeous long hair! :sunglasses:


#136
