period clothing reference

anonymous asked:

Possibly a strange question, but I absolutely love your blog and have been wondering for a while if you knew of one similar - but instead of hanfu and traditional Chinese attire, dedicated to Japanese kimono and period clothes! If not, that's understandable - I just love seeing both fashion styles but have had little luck in searching for one like yours. Thank you!

Hi, not a strange question at all!

For kimono-focused blogs, I recommend: 

http://thekimonogallery.tumblr.com/ - contains descriptive posts of antique kimono, among other things.

https://tanuki-kimono.tumblr.com/ - posts modern kimono and helpful resources (tutorials, etc).

http://missmyloko.tumblr.com/ - focuses specifically on geisha/maiko, but contains lots of information on kimono in general.

As for period clothing, I’m sorry I can’t help you there ^^;; 

If any followers have recommendations for period clothing blogs, please feel free to comment! 

Hope this helps!
