When will my reflection show? (Mulan dress design) by Vilva When will my reflection show? (Mulan dress design) by Vilva
Tumblr'd here! [link] please reblog instead of reposting!

Here's Mulan, continuing off my Disney Fashion Revamps! :D I tried incorporating aspects of the traditional Qi Pao and Han fu. As a result, it didn't turn out very modern at all, but I think I'm ok with that!:XD:

I went with this composition mostly to show the 'reflection' theme, but also because I couldn't choose between the color schemes! The pink was probably more iconic, but she always seemed more in character with the green… :shrug: Out of curiosity, which one do you guys like more? :aww:

Also, points for those who spotted the chinese characters on the dress! :la: As some of you may know, the original legend of Mulan was passed down from a centuries old chinese poem/ ballad. I wanted to include that somehow, so if you look at the 'fanned out' part of the dress, you'd see parts of the poem I wrote down! ^.^ (along with some other random ramblings) xD and umm.. ahaha… sorry..my mandarin penmanship is actually quite awful... :T

I feel like the green was is more her. She spends much more time in the movie in green and it's a reflection of her inner self, where as the pink is more like when her mom dressed her up to see the match maker. And probably because when I was a kid I had this Mulan figurine that wore green.

All in all, green all the way!
