GRAH! Ladies and gent(s)…..presenting the first ever official still from the Da Mo Yao drama adaptation. Tangren just released the first and only (as of now) picture of Liu Shi Shi as Yu Jin (I’m calling her Yu Jin because this outfit is clearly from her Xiong Nu days, where she still went by that name). I’m dying to see the stills of her as Jin Yu when she heads to Chang An and switches over to the Han dynasty garb. In addition to the Xiong Nu and Han outfits, a few more costume changes in store will be the blue Luo Lan outfit that Jiu Ye gives to Yu Jin, when she cross-dresses as a soldier in Huo Qu Bing’s army, her Gui Su outfit with veil when the archery competition with Yi Zhi Xie and Huo Qu Bing occurs, and finally her more mature Han attire when she returns to Chang An (which include a set of outfits I can’t reveal yet because the chapters haven’t gotten to that). Tangren still refuses to divulge the name of the other male lead, or show pictures of Hu Ge in costume which will clearly show whether he’s Jiu Ye or Huo Qu Bing. Whatever, I’ll keep insisting he’s Huo Qu Bing (as everything from Baidu to Wiki claims he is), until I’m told otherwise.
Ladyboss also tweeted a picture of the accessories wall for the DMY costume department. C-netizens are furious because almost all these accessories have been used by Tangren before in their other dramas, ranging from LoCH2008, CP3, Crappy Sword (Oops, Xuan Yuan Sword), etc. I frankly want them to save their money for some decent CGI, and maybe find some doggies that actually resemble wolves. I don’t mind recycled jewelry. Plus most of the items were never worn by Shi Shi in those other dramas, so it’ll be interesting to see her in a more passionate and wild get up. Tong Hua weibo’d this morning that she saw Shi Shi’s official costume photo as Yu Jin and fell in love. She thinks Shi Shi looks much more beautiful in her DMY costume than in her Qing garb (as Ruo Xi in Bu Bu Jing Xin). This coming from the author, I think Shi Shi has already gotten the stamp of approval. I need MOAR DMY goodies~
