The Flower Blooming in Adversity by yayacosplay The Flower Blooming in Adversity by yayacosplay

My very best attempt at a Disney Princess smile.

I've been waiting on more photos of Mulan from a fairly recent photoshoot, but got antsy, so have some more Mulan from the Consplayers studio shoot a few years ago! The portrait on the right is a never before released shot (I don't know why)! You can see my flower hair comb and accessories pretty well in that one.

Construction writeup:
I used various Asian brocade fabrics to give the costume texture. Even the white lining and skirt are patterned though it\'s hard to see in these pics. The blue "overshirt" is constructed like a corset, with light boning and lace up back. I also made Chinese hairpins, earrings and tassles etc. to give the costume a more traditional feel. The flower haircomb was sculpted over a regular comb and hand-painted. The flower was a lucky find.
I definitely did NOT want to do the stark white makeup and opted for more natural shades as per the \"Reflection\" song scene.
Lastly, I altered my hairstyle because I kinda hate the loose bun head look in real life >_<... and I desperately wanted to use my own hair (plus extension loops ^^).

However that background is bit too loud for my tase. A less saturated green would've been easier on the eyes, I think. =)
