Mulan is a character from the Disney’s animated action adventure film of the same name. Created by Robert D. San Souci and produced by Walt Disney in the late 1990’s. Mulan centres around a young girl named Fa Mulan, who takes her father place in the Chinese military disguised as a man and is sent to train with the rest of the troops. Fa Mulan is not alone on this quest, she has her dragon, Mushu by her side, who guides along the way. Her intelligence pays off as he fends off a Hun attack while in the process falling in love with a captain. Mulan was a commercial success for Disney along with receiving praise from critics and several awards.
The Mulan costume I have chosen are listed below with links to all the items needed to complete it. There are several costume worn in the film and I have included as many as I could find. I also add some information on this Mulan cosplay below. Enjoy!!
Pink Mulan costume
For the Mulan costume, I got on amazon. It includes the top, shirt, belts and a cape. It does not include the shoes and wig, which I will add below. The Mulan dress itself was very good. The seller doesn’t tell you what type of materials is used but I can say that they are of high quality. It fitted quite well for the most part. Overall a great Mulan cosplay.
Green Mulan costume
For the green Mulan outfit, I found on Etsy. I didn’t get this costume, I went for the pink version but I thought I would include it as an option. Because I didn’t buy I I can’t comment on the quality but just by reading the reviews it seems that most people are happy with the costume.
Mulan style folding fan
I got a Mulan folding fan to really make the Mulan costume stand out more. This is an optional extra. I’ve bought one of these before so I didn’t know what to expect. Fort off the detail work looks beautiful. For the price, I think this is a must for the Mulan costume. This by no means is just a decoration piece as it very much functional. Overall for the price, I think you are getting a fantastic Mulan folding fan.
For the black wig, I got on amazon. A good wig for the most part. The hair looks and feels very good. You cause a straightener, which is nice, although I didn’t use it so I can’t completely vouch for it. I found the cap good for the most part. The images used to advertise the wigs are true to what you get. You would be surprised at how many are not. Overall a good wig that will work well for the Mulan cosplay.
The last piece of the Mulan costume are the flat shoes. I had owned a similar pair to these a while ago but they were old and worn so I was badly in need of a new pair. These are a Jessica Simpson branded flats. They are made from a combination of leather and assortment of fabrics. These were ok, pretty pricey but you are paying name brand price here. Overall a little on the expensive side, I would suggest you keep looking for a better pair for a much cheaper price.
