突厥第二可汗国, the first half Tang period/初唐から中唐, the men's wear, En-Ryo/円領服, the ladies' wear, Han-Pi/半臂 When I sketched for some submissions, I made the hairstyle in the Tang, on the woman with long hair as the sample.
↑this submission was a failed case, in the making
Generally, the height hairstyles like this were used some hairpieces or a wig. I used some long ornamental hairpin
㎝) making myself that I modeled it on then using, and I made helping tool as the core of the form, it was a little stick with padding. I used camellia oil(using it Japanese style though), not hair spray. So that the finished making, it was looked very glossed like as the past. If Anyone had thick dark hair with elasticity, it were need the hair over 90
㎝ to make this hairstyle. Anyone who had pale color, In the case, increasing the padding or using 135
㎝, because It vary how much quantity of

cortex of one's hair.
You may feel strange that I expressed the costume in the times of the Tang, although the title, the nomadic mode. The main trend of the men's clothing were from nomadic-style in the Eastern part of the Eurasia Continent.
More than old times, It had been the Western Regions origin and It had reached the Eastern through nomadic people. Also the Tang dynasty used it in similar manners, even at the ceremony in the Imperial court. Women usually wore a tops with short sleeves that was called 半臂
We can see various elements in the women's clothing. One of them was from the Confucianism儒教. One was the traditional silk weave.
The important element was their origin from the North Dynasty(386-
534). And what's more, the new trends in fashion were widespread through the Türkic and the Sogdian. It was open collar wear with plants and animals patterns on its lapels. These were used everyday wear or other. It's very exoticism in the first half Tang period.
The Tang dynasty was so international to adopt the all about abroad, until 9th century.
There was another historical fact. Many Türkic people were living in Chang'an/長安, by the force of circumstances then. The reason were different, however some women of them were made to serve in the royal palace of Tang. It was written by Türk inscriptions(stone memorial) in the Türkic Rune and some books recorded in the Tang age.
This historical figure is known as the name, KöI-tigin. ‘
was similar meaning the prince (KöI≒
the Lake) It was given the men who were the blood relations of the Khagan. He was a real person(684-731). He lived in the Second Khaganate of Kök(Gök) Türk/ 突厥第二可汗国
. I sketched the diadem from the stone statue which was found at his memorial place in the Mongolia. It has remained its part of the head. This person was very brave and such a nice guy, written by Türk inscriptions. It was carved by orders of the Khagan(Qaghan) with his deep emotion. He was KöI-tigin's elder brother who was called Bilge Khagan(683-734). Really, He was also a breve commander, he had courageousness with perfect virtues, written by inscriptions and the Tang history books. Naturally, they were from the Asinas(Ashina) family. I may think they were half-brothers.
KöI-tigin's diadem was estimated very gorgeous from the original, it had various elements. Actually in the first half Tang period, the officers who had the military forces in the Tang territory put on like this. It was represented the warrior rank, called 鶡冠
/Katsu-Kan. Normally in the oriental histories, Its decoration was used plume(the Pheasant tail). But only this period was used molding-bird on the diadem. The “Katsu/鶡
” it means “the fearless bird”. What kind of birds was Katsu/鶡
? In generally speaking, this is the varieties of the Pheasant
.(It is probably the Common Pheasant
) However, there was another kind of the bird, called Türkic Sparrow/突厥雀,
written by the old Chinese official history book. This is not the sparrow but the Pallas's Sand-grouse/沙鶏.
It is the migratory bird,
lives in the Eurasian Continent also GOBI(desert) now.
s strayed in Japan. When the one was written with illustration in the Edo period, It was the same Türkic Sparrow/突厥雀.
Lastly, there is also the diadem of Bilge Khagan, which was found in the Mongolian(2001). It is very splendid golden diadem and It has really the tradition of the Kök Türk. We can see it at the Museum in Mongolia. Thank you! For you're reading!

《FootNote》The Second Khaganate of Gök(Kök)Türk /突厥第二可汗国/
There are some deferent descriptions about it, today.
At the first, the Kök Türk Khaganate separated in the late 6th centuryA.D. The part of the East( the Eastern Türk Khaganate) had relations with the Sui and Tang /隋と唐. It once ended in the A.D630, afterward the successors built again. So that, another called 〝the reconstructed Türk Khaganate 〟in Japan. In fact, its description was also written ‘the Northern Türk’ by the complete history books in the old times.The Asina family(clan)/Asinas clan/阿史那氏
