Mulan's Decision by behindinfinity Mulan's Decision by behindinfinity
Our other Mulan cosplay photos:

About this photo:
When people think of the Disney movie for Mulan, their thoughts usually go immediately to fun parts like "I'll Make A Man Out Of You", but for this I wanted to focus on a somber moment.

One of the parts that made an impact on me while watching the film was when Mulan leads Khan out of the stable and looks down in a sadly pensive way. Then she takes one last glance at her home before bursting out the gate into the rainy night. I treated this photo as a loose interpretation of that one short moment of weakness :pointr: [link] right before she charged away and absolutely could not go back on her decision.

That's just one of the reasons I really wanted to cosplay Mulan/Ping, being a character I can identify with in a lot of ways. It really helps when the people you care about make you realize what's really important, and inspire you to be braver than you think you are.

I'd also like to dedicate this to a girl named Rez, and her father. Stay strong. And thank you from me as well. :rose:

The theme of my uploads has been erratic lately, but I decided to follow up my previous post with another Mulan cosplay photo. I did it movie poster-style again, a technique I'm trying to refine and immensely enjoying nowadays. :D

This isn't the last of our Mulan photos, since we have yet to do a shoot with our other friends as more characters. :)

Silly photos and behind-the-scenes stuff 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:

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

Mulan is one of my all time favorite movies. the story wrenches my heart every time.
After rewatching Disney's Mulan for the nth time (it's one of my favorite disney film) and watching Hua Mulan (2009) last night, I've come to the realization that you really really really reaaaally resemble Mulan!

Excellent! Very well set up and executed throughout - I definitely gotta say I like how your Mulan shots have the vibe and feel of a Hong Kong action flick like something is seriously about to hit the fan. Keep it up! (Faves and recommends)
