Welcome!


If it has anything to do with Saiunkoku Monogatari -- the light novels, the manga, or the anime series -- then it NEEDS to be here! ^^

Random from Favourites

The Favourites gallery are for deviations favoured by members or members of affiliates, that are NOT already in the group's gallery folders -- that means the group's avvy is not shown on the deviation. These may then be used as basis for inviting to gallery. They will, in the main, be deviations that will be unlikely to be submitted to the group's gallery proper as the deviants have not been into dA for half a year or more.

Really, this should not be used for self-promotion.

UUBI #1 : Saiunkoku Hairpins

Thu May 9, 2013, 10:47 PM by pergamjee:iconpergamjee:
【UUBI = Useful/Useless Bits of Information】

A member introduced me to a chinese SaiMono forum at the tieba.baidu.com site, and I found these lovely hairpins/combs, inspired by the series!


The Shurei's flowerbuds hairpin is made of red agate, jade, freshwater pearls, and glass.





width="350"


And here is Shurei's hairpin, as shown in official artwork ...

width="350"

Here are some of her other SaiMono hairpins ...
(I will update with more later)


Vol. 14 - Kokuchou wa Ori ni Torawareru (黒蝶は檻にとらわれる)

This piece, titled "Black Butterfly Caged", was created with thoughts of Seiga.
Kourin or Shunki will suit this simply sweet pin, with black pearls and obsidian beads  ...

width="350"




Vol. 8 - Hikari Furu Heki no Daichi (光降る碧の大地)

"Light Falling Over Green Plains", this elegant piece with delicate colours, I can see on Shusui ...
... although, with that butterfly, it can be worn by Kocho too!

width="350"


Vol. 10 - Ryokufuu wa Ha no Gotoku (緑風は刃のごとく)

"Green Wind Like Blade", a flamboyant piece for the flamboyant Kocho ...

width="350"






Vol. 9 - Koubai wa Yoru ni Kaoru (紅梅は夜に香る)

"Subtle Fragrance of Red Plum Blossoms", with natural undyed coral, copper fittings and iron tablets, is minimalist and un-fussy ... should suit Sairin?

width="350"



So, what do you think?


Do click on any of the pics of Shurei's hairpin and visit this creative person's post to see her other hair accessories ...
... and if you understand and write chinese, you can even give her your feedback! ^^
