Fox Spirit Matchmaker: Red-Moon Pact, an online fantasy drama, is captivating Chinese audiences with its use of stunning costumes and props, which reflect the beauty and craftsmanship of centuries-old intangible cultural heritage.

Produced by iQIYI and starring actress Yang Mi and actor Gong Jun, the drama is adapted from the popular webcomic Fox Spirit Matchmaker by Tuo Xiaoxin. The show begins with Yang's character, Tushan Honghong, a fox spirit from the righteous Tushan Fox Clan, accidentally saving Dongfang Yuechu, played by Gong, a human youth pursued by his lifelong enemy. As they spend time together in Tushan, a bond gradually forms between them. Eventually, they unite with their loved ones to combat the forces of evil, striving for peace between humankind and the spirit clan.

The series has wowed viewers with its exquisite use of Nanjing ronghua (velvet flowers), filigree inlay art, Xianju lanterns, and Suzhou leno, seamlessly integrating these traditional crafts into the enchanting storyline.

Inheritors of these crafts shared how they blended their crafts with the fantasy narrative. Check out the video showcasing the intricate work behind the scenes.
