Costume Design

Postby purpleGirl » Mon Jul 03, 2006 9:44 am

The clothing design of the characters in the series and game is different. The series has more of a variety of course. What did you guys think of the costumes? Appropriate? I thought it was sorta odd how they based it off the game, but YueRu wore mostly red, compared to purple.

I found this pic which I thought looked quite interesting. If only it was bigger.

oh wow...that looks awesome~ yeh..if only it was bigger ^^

I think the character costime were okay in terms of adaptation..but not all of them.. I didn't like a few of the costimes, like for Ling Er the yellow outfit... I mean.. green is okay, but yellow just didn't suit her image x.x The blue/green costume at the beginning was good :) They probably tried to give her a more mature look, by changing the hair, and no longer has those two ribbons on her hair (I thought they looked good on her, and considering Ling Er in the game ties two..they should have kept that.)

Yue Ru should have worn more purple... red looked like she was getting married..maybe they wanted more contrast between Ling Er and Yue Ru..but still... it would have been easier to relate to the game character by the use of colour. In terms of appearance, the one in the drama looked nothing like the one in the game.

They did a fine job with Ah Nu I think..even though it isn't what the game looks like...we can still see some connection.

Uh...I, on the other hand was completely disappointed on Ah Nu's costume.


LOOK HOW SHORT HER SKIRT IS IN THE GAME!!!

Image

It barely reach her lower thigh.


And in the show her long skirt stretch down all the way to her ankle.

Hehe, in Pal3A (the game) you actually meet a girl that can use a flute attack to kill monsters.

And, if Ah Nu's skirt is any shorter, she should just not wear one, because then it'd be pointless. Or maybe I'm just dreaming...

Talking about costumes, Tang Yu wears something similar to the gaem near the end in Nan Zhao Guo (I think)

I think that all the costumes are nicely designed... The costume I like the most is when Xiao Yao first met Ling'er in the series... When Ling'er is wearing the cute green costume... :D
