Clothing styles - Character meme by Hemotoxiclifeguard Clothing styles - Character meme by Hemotoxiclifeguard
Hey look I made a meme xD
Im thinking of doing this with some character sometime, so yeah, I thought that maybe if someone is interested in doing this as well, I might as well upload it!

---


I think you get the point of it: Draw your character dressed in the different clothing styles.
Also, for example, where it says "Chinese or Indian", you can obviously choose between either, and chose to draw whatever included in that style, geisha, samurai, shaadi etc.
The directions beneath are just that, directions, so if you feel inspired to let your imagination flow, do that by all means! It'll just be more fun to draw and watch! :la:

Also if you do my meme, I'd love it if you left a link to it here!

[EDIT]
It has been pointed out to me by ~Moushi730 that perhaps writing Chinese or Indian wasnt the most accurate thing to write xD
Well, simply put, what I meant to draw in that panel was "Asian" clothes in general or anything in that cathegory (which is quite large)
And I also learned that Samurais and Kimonos dont come from China but Japan, so there.
(I wanted to change it to Traditional Asian - t.ex Chinese or Indian, but I accidentally saved the psd with the layers merged, so I cant change it now without destroying the texture :L So please just... bear that in mind??)

I would totally love to use this. There's only one little suggestion I would make. You say Chinese encompasses Geisha and Samurai, which are Japanese, so the meme is a little confusing in that sense, when I think Chinese, I think Hanfu, emperors, monks, etc, maybe to make it less confusing just put Asia, that includes India, Japan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam. I think one of the only countries that one would consider part of Asia but really isn't is North and South Korea. Hope this critique helps! ^^

Oh right, I didnt think of that xD;; but I think there were Chinese geishas and Samurais too, werent there?
I thought about using Asian, but then I couldnt write Indian afterwards because thats also in asia, so that would have been weird xD I just wanted to focus mainly on whats seen as "classical chinese" (even if its not all accurate, people usually think of kimonos and samurais xD), and I love indian clothing so I just had to add that there x3
I might change it if there is more confusion :la: thanks for the advice!

Nope, there were no Chinese Geisha or Samurai. There were Chinese warriors and artists, but they really didn't look anything like the Geisha and Samurai of Japan. Kimono also weren't worn in China, that's also strictly Japanese, in fact, the women of Japan invented the technique of making kimono with the square pieces of fabric being sewn together after they won their independence from China. Here are some examples of Traditional Chinese clothing

Interesting... I wonder why everyone got it so wrong then xD *the more you know*
Ugh, shit, I felt like changing it now, but I dont think I saved it in psd xL the texture in the background would get weird...
I think I'll just write it in the description then :L

Thanks for telling me though! That was actually really interesting :D

Well, just because a lot of people think one thing about a culture, doesn't mean it's correct. Try doing research hon, if you think the outfits are cool, then I'm sure you would find the reasons behind those outfits equally interesting. As for me, I've been studying the Geisha and Maiko culture and lifestyle since Winter, and I LOVE it. It's all so interesting! ^^ For example I have a feeling that you love the style of kimono, but do you know the different types and the formalities of those different types? There are over 12 different types of kimono each that have different occasions and formality and each that have their own individual beauty. Did you also know, that traditionally a woman will wear 6 completely different kimono ensembles for her wedding day? This is just the tip of the iceberg. The only reason I would suggest you would change it is because not many people copy and past the descriptions of memes, I'm just afraid that someone who does know what they're talking about would see the meme that someone else filled out and insult them by saying something along the line of "You have no idea what you're talking about, only an idiot would think Chinese wear kimono and are geisha." you know what I mean? There are people like that who do just want to use their knowledge to harm. That's my only concern.

Wow, yeah thats interesting o u o yeah, I should definetely read up more on the histories of traditional clothing, if not it could always be good inspiration for some stories I am writing! :la:

Yeah :L well, its only in the description as and as you said people dont often copy that, so it wont say anything about geisha and stuff on the actual meme! The only problem would be if they draw geishas...
Perhaps I should just remove that part from my description at least... UGH I DONT KNOW WHAT DO TO, If I have to change it it means I'll basically have to remake the whole meme xL
well, I'll see if I have time to do it before I go, Im going to greece for a week :3 Just hope people havent started doing it yet then xI
