Can I just say that I think this is the way Mulan should appear int 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.


First off, I apologize for the NSFW language posted here.  I just see this go through giant circulations now and then, and it kind of bothers me.  I agree that the pink dress does not show Mulan as herself - it’s something she’s forced into to be the perfect woman for the matchmaker to mold.

The problem is, this uniform is also a symbol of Mulan’s true identity being suppressed. It’s in this uniform that she’s told that she needs to be a man, that she’s shunned for being a woman.  Mulan is still pretending to be someone that she is not when she is “Ping.”

The Mulan that should be in the parks is this one…

Mulan Saving China

(If for some reason that doesn’t load, it’s Mulan in blue from the victory scene at the end)

That is what she is wearing when she comes back from her humiliation, when she convinces the manly soldiers to dress as concubines to infiltrate the palace, when she finishes off Shan Yu, and when the Emperor awards her for her bravery.  Anyone who thinks Mulan should be around the parks as Ping clearly did not get the movie at all.
