Its quite an Interesting history
North East India was historically Isolated from the other Asian kingdoms thanks to the dense forests so they were much less advanced and were mostly pagan head hunters
they were colonized by the British like the rest of South Asia
In the 19th century a group of American baptist missionary's come to spread the word of Jesus in India
they had great success in Nagaland partly due to the fact that unlike Islam and Hinduism the tribal beliefs that Naga people followed weren't that big they didn't have a grand holy book and their religion wasn't spread in the billions so it was pretty easy to convert them
ironically the state with the highest amount of baptists in India has the lowest rape % of any India state and the rapes that did occur were conducted by Indian Army men who were stationed their

Then you have this noble creature called falcon that adds to the royal mysticism.

Other boy from the same tribe.
Googled them and wikipedia says this about the celebration they do this makeup for:
>At the end of the rainy season in September, Wodaabe clans gather in several traditional locations. (…) Here the young Wodaabe men, with elaborate make-up, feathers and other adornments, perform the Yaake: dances and songs to impress marriageable women. The male beauty ideal of the Wodaabe stresses tallness, white eyes and teeth; the men will often roll their eyes and show their teeth to emphasize these characteristics. Wodaabe clans then join for the remainder of the week-long Gerewol: a series of barters over marriage and contests where the young men's beauty and skills are judged by young women.
Sounds really comfy tbh. I wish my culture had men show off their beauty and skill to impress women.

There's an interesting documentary about the wodaabe tribe here, the festival where the men shows off begins about 35
From the documentary it seems the women are only able to pick men freely during that annual ritual event, and it's expected for them to act demure. This documentary also follows a couple where the wife doesn't want her husband to go off to the festival to meet other women, but he does it anyway.
There is a really cute older couple where the husband clearly loves his wife and children and stays home for them though. Also interesting is that battery acid is used as black lipstick in this. >>27060

folk outfits are still made in Latvia, mostly for folk dancing troupes or choirs or if you are hella patriotic and like getting married or something. obviously, many changes have happened throughout history and you probably couldn't pin most outfits made nowadays precisely on a time period or place but some are still cute imo. like these fits from Alsunga.>>27860
to my understanding they indeed were used like that, and still are? my grandpa used to do folk dancing and he has a little chest with all of his saktas, couldn't figure out for the life of me how they worked as a child haha

i'm personally really into knitting and i find knitted mittens to be the more interesting part of latvian folk heritage if you could call it that. there are many traditional patterns, most made from primary signs, each having some sort of meaning, so you can either adhere to the existing patterns or create your own with a certain idea in mind (which i find terribly romantic, yes)
so pretty! i love the bright colors of eastern european folk dress. my family is from poland and there is an old vest in the family that was handed down, it's black velvet? not sure what the material actually is, with embroidered flowers and beading all over it, it's truly beautiful.>>28050>>28051>>28052

That's so lovely, the idea of knitting for someone becomes so much more with a certain message expressed with it
Can you tell me your favorite pattern/meaning that you have read about?

Poland is pretty wild because the style of the dress changes radically depending on where you are in the country. That's a typical Krakow costume, and it's well-known, but if you go to other regions like say, Żywiec, things look so different!
Flower crowns or headdresses seem to be fairly common all over Europe, I wonder if that's related to pagan stuff, more of a midsummer type thing?
Pretty sure the girls in this photo are from the Kurpie Zielone area.

Queen Paubi’s headdress (½)
>“This ornate headdress and pair of earrings were found with the body of Queen Puabi in the Royal Cemetery at Ur. The headdress is made up of 20 gold leaves, two strings of lapis and carnelian, and a large gold comb. In addition, she wore chokers, necklaces, and large lunate-shaped earrings. Her upper body was covered by strands of beads made of precious metals and semiprecious stones that stretched from her shoulders to her belt. Ten rings decorated her fingers. A diadem or fillet made up of thousands of small lapis lazuli beads with gold pendants depicting plants and animals was apparently on a table near her head. Two attendants were in the chamber with Puabi, one crouched near her head, the other at her feet. Various metal, stone, and pottery vessels lay around the walls of the chamber.”https://www.penn.museum/collections/highlights/neareast/puabi.php

Ah I'm sorry didn't check this thread. Yeah I honestly had no idea anyone even really knew about chuvash. Whenever I've mentioned it to my russian friends they have no idea lol. I don't have many interesting photos but I do have one of my family farm here. I don't want to muddy up this thread with too much unrelated crap but maybe some architect pics might be worth.
the language doesn't sound russian what so ever (at least to me) and it's honestly hard to explain it, but it's like a lot of very short quick words spoken extremely fast (that you can discern).
Thanks for the post though. I've always been extremely ashamed for being chuvash because I've been told repeatedly it's like rednecky russia. I'd always lie about it.
My bad, I was just posting quickly with the title info it gave when I found it.

just some facts, not trying to be rude!>>32451
this isn't necessarily tang dynasty ruqun. it's a qiyao ruqun, which just means it ties at the waist. it looks more similar to one from the early ming dynasty.>>32452
this one is a qixiong ruqun (again not necessarily from tang dynasty) and an interesting thing about this is the sash (pi bo) is part of the outfit, meant to be worn at the elbow.
also fun fact, during the tang dynasty all women were required to wear atleast one hair accessory when they were dressed. after the law was abolished, hair accessories were still prevalent in chinese culture as a part of a girl's coming of age ceremony.

qixiong ruqun is my favorite style! to me it looks elegant and flatters the body more. since it was born during the tang period, i have no doubts that women designed it for themselves since they had a lot of rights during that time. there's even a lot of evidence that the outfit purposely exposed some cleavage.

Junihitoe noble court dress from Heian period, Japan.
Called the 12 layer robes but it could be anywhere from 10 to 40 or more layers of silk, depending on your social rank.
>The layers of colours may be used to represent the woman herself, and the arrangements of the layers and their colours were a good indication to an outsider what taste and what rank the lady had. The colour combinations, termed kasane no irome (襲の色目, "layers of colours"), may have poetic names that refer to plants, such as "crimson plum of the spring". A name "under the snow" may have a layer of green representing leaves, layers of pink, with white on top to represent snow. The colour combinations changed with the seasons (of which there were 72 in the old calendar), and a wearer may change the gowns just before the flowers of a seasonal plant actually bloom. The appropriate use of colour gave an indication of the cultured and refined taste of the wearer.

I understand the idea that it is disrespectful when it's redesigned into a "sexy" version. Seeing the Dirndl made "sexy" also makes me uncomfortable on some level. Altering and modernising traditional dress is fine as long as it is in keeping with the spirit of the original; in that sense I understand the frustration. Redesigns like >>89304
feel more in line with the feeling of the original Hanbok. Just my take.

The traditional Qipao is also a "sexy" dress tho, it was seen as a provocative departure from the classic han chinese clothing, again much like the flapper dresses of the 1920s.
In china it is seen as a sexy yet classy gown.
ah fair enough. I don't really understand, then. The only thing I would think of is the shorter length, and maybe that many retailers don't really acknowledge that they are lifting design elements from the cheongsam. Kimono-inspired clothes often are referred to as kimonos in some sense, whereas cheongsam-inspired dresses are just generically "chinese" dresses. I am really just speculating though.
On another note, I would like to see more traditional design elements in modern clothes, but given the profit-driven fast-fashion industry I doubt that would really become mainstream. I love how layered a lot of these clothes are.
