DPP: Vintage Mulan by Vimeddiee DPP: Vintage Mulan by Vimeddiee
Here's the next princess! I wanted to give Mulan a sort of Chinese 1920s, 1930s feel so I looked up the fashion of the time and just adapted her normal outfit to match.

Hope you like!

That's called a qípáo or Cheongsam whichever you prefer. It's a style of dress the Manchu people in Manchuria.

I love her attire! I love the pattern printed on it. :D Even though am Chinese I never really own any pure Chinese attires. I love the shoe that you draw. In Chinese ancient time, this is what they wear. My grandmother told me they never have cash to buy shoes and so they make it :D

I like the flower pin at the back of her hair as well as the background. Good job!

She does look like a girl from old Shanghai, the Paris of the Orient. The Generalissimo himself would love it.

Such wonderful vivis dolours :love:
I think this is the best so far, or the one that speaks to me most- she has such a sad expression.

She's my favourite Disney Princess, along with Ariel! She has a lot more depth than the other princesses so I'm glad I was able to portray that! Thank you for your comment darling!

I really love how you're doing this series! Most people try to put the princesses in the time period they're from, but putting them in different ones makes for much more diverse and interesting styles and clothing. I'm going to keep watching these!
Great job, again!
