    Cool New Mulan Costume

    Hi! I saw this post on Tumblr and was wondering what MiceChat's opinion was.
    Do you think Mulan's costume should be changed to her armor?

    Can I just say that I think this is the way Mulan should appear in the parks. In the beginning of the movie they make it very clear that the dress she wears to meet the matchmaker is not comfortable nor does it represent her personality. She spends the whole of the film proving that she is not a prize to be won or just a pawn to be married off at earliest convenience. She proves her worth in this outfit. She saves China in this outfit. She falls in love in this outfit. She risks her life, makes her strongest friendships, and changes the entire country IN THIS OUTFIT. Then they have her walk around the park in the same outfit she wore in the first scene of the movie and I think it is really negative toward her character. That is not who she is.

    Re: New Mulan Costume

    I'd like to see her dressed in armor; but it's such a drab outfit, I'd think most of the general public wouldn't jump at the opportunity.
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    The only negatives I have about the costume are the muted colors and the oddly soft texture for armor. I love that she has armor. I do hope, though, that she'll still have her traditional ensemble at times as well.

    I like to see the characters in all of their outfits. Like Aurora in her blue, pink and Briar Rose outfits. So yes, I would like to see Mulan in this outfit. However, I think an even better one is the dress she wears when battling Shan Yu on the roof of the Palace at the end of the film.

    I think that the armor outfit is pretty cool. I wouldn't mind seeing her walking around in that.

    Mulan is the Disney princess who stops me from teaching my daughter that Disney princesses are cautionary tales. Before her they were mosty either Malibu Stacys or the humorless Pocahontas, mostly victims waiting for nicer versions of Gaston to make their lives glorious.

    Now there's Tangled's Rapunzel, Pixar's Merida, and Shrek's Fiona. I love how you need a black belt to be a princess today. Enough with "love at first sight," and "he imprisoned my father and later me, but he was a nice jailer and he CHANGED!"

    (Jasmine, Eve, Suuuuusan, Coraline, and Nala are cool too, but I digress. Still I do like the trend of stronger girls & women in kids' movies! And Mulan is my favorite.)

    the problem with mulan's costume in the park is similar to the problem i have with rapunzel's costume in the park. her hair was a symbol of her mother's control and abuse. her hair is what bound her to that terrible life. finn cut her free of those ties and in the end she had the short hair. but, because she's recognized from the movie as the princess with long hair, she's always depicted as that in merchandise and costume. similar to beast and all his servants.

    basically, they have to produce a look for their characters that is recognizable and attractive. unfortunate when you look at the bigger meaning, yes, but it works for the kids.

    "oh, i just love happy endings!"

    How about this:
