Howdy, time ban­dits. Time-​caneers. Mem­bers of the Chronil­log­i­cal Order. Greg and I are plan­ning our next big time jump for “feudal Japan” (kind of a big net to cast, I admit — and ulti­mately a euphemism for “you know, like, in that Kuro­sawa movie”), which means that I need to make sure I know how things looked, more or less. So, here’s a taste of that:

If anyone hap­pens to know of any par­tic­u­larly good resources on the sub­ject — with regards to fash­ion and archi­tec­ture, espe­cially — we’d appre­ci­ate the help. Such are the powers of the inter­net?!?

    OOOOOoooohhhh…..there’s a really great movie that gives a great rep­re­sen­taion of the manner of style and dress for that period….
    It was directed by that one guy…umm…I think it was Kiris….no…wait a sec…umm…kamask….thats not it either.
    KURO­SAWA!!! That’s the guy!
    (sorry…..sarcasm was tongue in cheek and could not be restrained.. I no it wasn’t help­ful for you, but it gave me momen­tary amuse­ment 😉 )

    Try the movie ‘The Seven Samurai’
    Although I’m not sure if it’s feudal; they have prim­i­tive mus­kets.
