YegrinaI actually wanted to do a post wearing traditional hanbok on Chuseok but I wasn’t able to find any updated mesh versions.  The few designers that made them are no longer active or have moved on to non-traditional items.  During my search, I reconnected with an old acquaintance from the Korean SL community, Van Gackt.  A lot of my Korean SL friends are no longer active members especially after Second Life officially pulled out from Korea a few years back.  There were lots of controversy over Second Life’s “failure” in Korea, but that is a long debate I don’t want to get in to.  Anyways, Van has a little store called “Yegrina” with some clothes inspired by traditional Korean clothes. This one is a common gatcha item.  It’s a modern interpretation of the traditional Korean hanbok.
YegrinaSome of the details of the fabric gets lots in the mesh which is unfortunate, because traditional Korean fabric is very intricate and beautiful.  Jade and gold were commonly used as jewelry and adornment, so I used these elements to accessorize: a black and gold clutch, and a jade bracelet. Yegrina

The hat is very old.  It’s part of another Korean traditional hanbok outfit from LittleGirl.  I have worn it before years ago when I was inspired by Hwang Jin Yi.  Today’s look reminds me more of “Shine or Go Crazy”, a Korean TV series quite popular early this year.  The gold onyx earrings are fairly new from Modern Couture.  I really wish more designers would make traditional Korean clothing and accessories. It’s too bad I am useless when it comes to creating.  By the way the photos were taken at Jomo, a skin/apparel sim in a traditional Chinese setting.  It’s quite beautiful to visit.  If you like weapons, there is a little store in the sim that carries free traditional Chinese weapons. I picked up a few for future photo sessions. 🙂Yegrina
