Some awesome pics of a 6th-generation member in the 3rd team of SNH48 posing in a gorgeous costume of an ethnic minority, posted by herself on her blog:

As a quarter German of Jewish descent herself, the Shanghainese girl looks befitting to pose as a person of an ethnic minority. :cool:

[EDIT]
Some stills of a graduated 1st-generation member of SNH48, now a solo artist under the same company, starring as an ancient general in a historical TV drama:

The towering young woman always looks good in ancient military outfits. :cool:

A long trailer of that TV drama:


An awesome thing about that trailer is that it's already a self-contained story by itself, & summarizes the entire series quite well too. :cool:

BTW, the title of the TV drama can be translated as "The Poetic Heart of Heaven and Earth."

[EDIT]
^ Behind-the-scenes footage of it:

Some awesome pics featuring a popular member in the 3rd team of GNZ48 posing as a Tibetan girl in a traditional costume:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006Apk2ugy1h6j9opwuhhj34282q21l2.jpg

^ Those words behind her are Tibetan, which's an alphabetic language distinct from the logogrammatic one used in many other parts of the country.

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006Apk2ugy1h6j9pd69zcj33344moe87.jpg

^ Posing w/ the goats, of course.

[EDIT]
A nicely produced promotion video for the trainee members of various SNHG groups - they'll be divided into two groups for a duel:


^ The two girls appearing at the end, who're identical twins, are current formal members of GNZ48. :)

The current #1-ranked SNHG member, who's a 5th-generation member of SNH48 & the captain of their 3rd team, gracing the cover of the current issue of a local mag in their home city:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/7f996901gy1h6mcvkuxygj21yk2j84qq.jpg

^ The mag proudly points out on the cover that she's the very 1st Shanghainese to be elected to the top rank in a General Election of SNHG. :)

A graduated 1st-generation member of SNH48, now a solo artist under the same company, posing as a woman in the Tang Dynasty:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/008qInNTly1h6phvn01dlj324836cqq4.jpg

^ It looks a bit sexy, but was actually a common look of women during that ancient historical period. :)

[EDIT]
A nice MV for a traditional-Chinese styled song by some of the GNZ48 members (click those underlined words to watch it) :


^ I also like those various traditional-Chinese styled costumes they're donning in it. :cool:

A couple of pics featuring a former CKG48 member in SNH48's 3rd team, posted by herself on her blog:

Behind-the-scenes footage of that shooting:


^ The Tang lady also looks like a younger empress of the Tang Empire during its most powerful period, when women's status & power were also at their peak. :cool: BTW, the song playing in the background is also rendered by her.

[EDIT]
^ More pics of the empress, shot at her palace complex:

^ The decoration on her forehead was chic at the time.
