Mulan: BAD ACTION MOVIE STYLE by behindinfinity Mulan: BAD ACTION MOVIE STYLE by behindinfinity
This is what could happen if Mulan were made into a bad Hollywood action flick, or a satirical B-movie.

If it were a B-movie, High Expectations Asian Father says
:iconheafplz: :iconsaysplz: CHILDREN, Y U NO MAKE A-MOVIE? YOU ARE NOT B-SIAN

I've kicked myself for this already, don't worry

Okay so my friends and I wanted to make a Chinese epic drama movie poster style group shot for our Mulan cosplay. This is what we managed:


After getting the shots for the previous poster idea, we had some extra time at the studio while getting exponentially delirious from hunger so we ended up with photos that were B-movie material.

And so this happened.

More silly photos from this shoot on my journal post:
Mulan & PotC Photoshoot + Clinique PaintingDisney Cosplay Shoot!These pictures were from June last year I'M SORRYYYYY

First time we wore our our Disney cosplays was for Toycon 2011:
:thumb216898006:

The weekend after, a few of us got together to do a studio shoot because we were just excited, and I wanted to finally try out a pseudo movie poster photo treatment for cosplay photos. It was definitely a challenge. But it made me really happy to show my friends how the final images turned out. :D

:bulletgreen: I'm not sure if this is worth mentioning but everyone's makeup was done by me, hahah

Lawrence Olivier once said that comedy is hard. But sometimes parody is just so easy; and fun. and if a thing begs for parody and send-up, and you don't take the oportunity, shame on you.
:D
very good; very grin-inducing

BAD action movie style? No, it certainly looks better than that mess that was Street Fighter:Chun-Li already!

Also, those NERF guns are just badass.
