Halh married woman’s outfit
Late 19th-early 20th Century
Virtual Collection of Masterpieces:
Halh married woman’s outfit consists of a hat, garment, waistcoat, boots, headdress, pendants, braid sheaths and other jewelery. A Halh bride receives a dowry of clothing and jewelry on her wedding day, marking her new marital status, wealth and ethnic group. In contrast to a maiden’s outfit, the married woman’s gown has no belt. A tall, pointed hat replaces the maiden’s round hat. The gown’s raised shoulder pads complement the elaborate, winged hair with its barrettes and skull cap and helps hold the hair in place. In the past, it was believed that the hairstyle should resemble the wings of a garuda, a mythical beast. This hairstyle was particularly popular with the Halh. The braid sheaths give the appearance of extremely long hair, which was a traditional mark of beauty. Great attention was paid to the ornamentation of the headdress. The skull cap originated from the 13th Century married woman’s hat. Generally, wives wore an “uuj” (something like a long waistcoat without sleeves) over the traditional Mongolian dress. The waistcoat was worn for ceremonies.
george lucas didnt invent that shit.
I doubt any white person invented anything, except maybe perfecting the art of stealing and claiming shit.
I like Star Wars as much as the next person, however, to claim that Lucas and his designing staff ingenious designed their costumes is complete rubbish. On top of that, it is completely ignorant and borderline racist as it continues the pillaging of PoC culture. Lucas created a film which “borrowed” on Asian culture: fashion and philosophy. Yet, he failed to include any Asian people in his films and did not benefit any Asian people with their profits. Again, I like the movies, but they are still INCREDIBLY problematic/racist.
I thought the costume designers and shit said they drew from this particular culture when Episode 1 came out.
I remember because I remember saying how white people are always obsessed with East Asian culture when it comes to making space operas.
