First Glimpse: Official Costume Stills for 2013 Return of the Condor Heroes

I don't have much to say except that I dislike the hairstyling of both Yang Guo and Xiaolongnü in this latest adaptation of Return of the Condor Heroes. I generally like more clean styling for guys in both modern and period productions. The costumes for Yang Guo make Chen Xiao look like he belongs more to the Beggar Sect than the Ancient Tomb Sect.

In summary, I hate Yang Guo's clownish pants in this production. I do not want to get distracted by the busy prints and the fact that Yang Guo may accidentally reveal some butt skin due to the low waistline. LOL. Yes, I know balloon/harem pants are trendy right now in women's fashion, but not in the wuxia world!! And wuxia guys should ALWAYS wear knee high boots. Michelle Chen's hair-tied-back styling does nothing to enhance her facial features. She looks more masculine and matronly in her Xiaolongnü's hair pieces than in real life.





Yang Guo's hairstyle gradually improves?
