More Gorgeous Outfits from Princess Silver

All of Zhang Xueying outfits look meticulously designed while still looking natural.

Princess Silver easily has my favorite costume and make-up so far this year. Zhang Xueying alone has over 40 outfits, every one of which looks beautiful on her. I’m on the fence about the one dress with ruffles, but every other outfit for all the leads does a great job of using pastels, patterns, fabric , and small modifications to give the series a unique look while making it still look within the realm of hanfu.

Love the use of ombre in their outfits here.

“L.O.R.D.” Guo Jingming wants to shape Chinese sci-fi, fantasy, animation

587266457

Gathering up the faces of China’s biggest fandom isn’t just a commercial ploy for Guo Jingming, but also  necessary to insure the success of the launching of an industry.

China’s most ambitious animation project to date, Guo Jingming’s Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (L.O.R.D.) is not only  China’s first motion capture animation film and first Western fantasy film, it’s also going to be made using exclusively Chinese animation teams in little over a year. The plan is one of many moves he’s made as a part of his aggressive entrance into the fields of Chinese science fiction and fantasy literature, film, and animation.

Unlike the other Chinese animation projects that are produced by one company, Guo  wants to shake the entire industry up, working with a dozen Chinese companies to simultaneously develop characters and backgrounds. Guo Jingming reportedly even gave a few million RMB to the primary team Original Force, just so they would upgrade their software instead of using foreign companies.

Human models for the ambitious project include Fan Bingbing, Yang Mi, Chen Xuedong, Kris Wu Yifan, Amber Kuo, William Chan, Yan Yikuan, Aarif Lee,  Lin Yun, Wang Duo, and  TF Boys‘ Wang Yuan. You can tell Guo Jingming went straight for the biggest fandoms with this cast to insure his project succeeds.
