More than 50 teenage girls on Sunday attended a Ji Li, the Confucian-style coming of age ceremony for female. The ceremony was organized by local fans of Hanfu, the traditional Chinese costume, and followed typical Ji Li practices which include making hair buns, attaching hairpins and paying tribute to Huangdi, the common ancestor of the Chinese.
