Peking Opera Costumes

Peking Opera costumes are,by and large, modeled after garments popular during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and, at the same time, absorbs the elements of garments of the preceding dynasties. Peking Opera costumes fall into five categories: mang (official robes), kao (stage armors), xue (informal garments for everybody),pei(informal garments for members of the imperial family and aristocrats),and yi (clothing other than those of the other four categories).
