Fa Mulan



Last Updated: 04-23-2011

Mulan is an amazing Disney movie, and she herself is a character that most girls can relate to. Being a huge Disney fan I felt that I had to cosplay a Disney Princess, so I chose Mulan. Her match-makers outfit is a very elegant design and the colours were beautiful, I thought that through making this I would be able to experiment with a few materials I hoped to use a lot more in my future costumes.
This was originally for my 18th birthday, which was Disney themed, and it proved a good test before Expo. It survived both wonderfully ^^
I used a mixture of Silk-touch-Lycra and Satin, as well as the meshy stuff. I was surprised that they went together well, and it was indeed an interesting process putting it all together. The reason I used lycra for the top (the pink and blue) was because I doubted my skills in making it fit tightly. I used the satin for the skirt and obi tie to brighten it up and because I knew it flow lovely.
The comb was made with fimo, and it was my first time using it. The teeth on the comb went horribly wrong, but over all I think it turned out very well ^^ The shawl was a simple thing to make, but it was an annoying part of the costume as it always got in the way!
