About Minamoto: I’ve been in the SCA for around 5 years, and I sew semi-regularly? I’ll probably learn more skills in this project though. It will be moderately challenging for me, as I have never made a full set of clothing before. It doesn’t quite tie into my persona (run-of-the-mill minor nobleman in Insei-era Japan) but it does give me a full outfit I can teach my ~680-720 AD Chinese women’s clothing class in.
Her Project: Chinese upper-class women’s casual day wear, circa 688-710 AD. Primarily based on the clothed figurines from Tomb. 206 of the Astana Necropolis, Turpan, Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, PRC. Other primary sources e.g. tomb frescoes, line engraving etc. from in and around this period will be used as supporting documentation.
