We heard that you were interested in the epic story about Fa Mulan! We have to say that you’re getting ready to dive into one of our favorites. The Disney movie is filled with fantastic flips, a few kooky cartoonish moments, and the marvelous melodies that keep us joining every sing-along. The newest film takes a mystical wuxia twist, featuring some serious ninja moves and Mulan’s iconic cleverness. Of course, just watching Mulan’s adventure might not be enough! Perhaps you’re inspired by the history of Mulan. It's a bit up in the air as to whether she was a real-life warrior woman, but her story was told first in the Northern and Southern Dynasties of China in the 'Ballad of Mulan.' The folklore said that she kept up her masculine disguise all the way until she returned home on the back of a camel, finally revealing the truth!
You can join in the fun by dressing up in some of our epic costumes. Combine the martial stylings of Bruce Lee and the Karate Kid with the magic of Disney Princesses with our Mulan costumes for adults and kids alike. If you're looking for the place to start, scroll through our suggestions for how to bring your Mulan dreams to life and you might find a spiritual guardian or two along the way.
Mulan Halloween Costumes
Start your Halloween out right when you confront everything from creepy creatures to candy garbed like the greatest hero in Chinese folklore! Mulan had some serious love for her family and wanted to do the right thing for the nation, even if she didn't quite agree with the way everyone thought she should do it! She might have dressed up in regal-looking wear at first and geared up in the style of the rest of the warriors soon after. But when it is time to really take down the attacking forces and defend China for good, she's got a style all her own! Find your favorite Mulan look and enact the story that has charmed us all since the dynasty days.
Mulan Warrior Costume
We’re happy to make a warrior out of you when you dress up in an officially licensed Mulan costume. You won't need to worry about finding any serious disguise so you can fit in with the rest of the Imperial Army when you're revealing your true inner warrior. After all, who wants to fit in with the standard style when you can stand out with the look of a genuine Disney hero?!
Warrior Mulan Costume for Girls
The story says that a young Mulan broke tradition when she learned that her father would have to fight in the war. Packing up the family sword and heading out to fight must have been a tough choice. Fortunately, helping your kiddo dress up in a child's Mulan warrior costume is an easy one. The best part is that your tyke won't actually have to take down an army to be a hero!
Traditional Mulan Costume
When the noble women of the Empire insist that you are ready to take your place in the family, they might have plenty of outfits that you should try. Now, everyone knows that Disney Princesses have some pretty amazing dresses at their disposal, so the legendary Mulan is no different! Celebrate Mulan's however reluctant nobility with her traditional dress.
Geisha Mulan Costume for Kids
One of Mulan’s famous looks is her Disney Princess dress! It borrows a bit from the iconic kimono of Japan and other elegant styles. With a simple costume, you can spare yourself a ton of time trying to help your tyke look like Mulan when she’s sitting down for a tea ceremony. Of course, a bit of white and pink makeup will have her twirling in true traditional Mulan style.
Disney Mulan Costume
After you’ve successfully saved everyone, it is time to just be you. That's what Mulan did, and if you feel your inner Mulan is ready to break free, you can do precisely the same thing. Ditch the Ping and say goodbye to that traditional look when you dress up in Mulan’s blue dress! It’s the only style that means you’re ready to meet the Emperor and kick it up!
Mulan Ping Costume
There's something to be said about the montages where Mulan progresses from Imperial Grunt to the best warrior in the ranks! If you'd like to sing along with the music with a real sense of style, try a women's warrior costume to bring Mulan's Ping persona to life. Just remember that you're eventually going to beat all the boys!
Imperial Army Costumes
While we all want to be the hero, not everyone is ready to be Mulan herself! For the guys and gals who want to join the Imperial Army to fight against the Huns alongside their heroine, all you need is the right style of armor to join in the fun. You can take some liberties thanks to the magic of the guardian spirits, too. Imagine what happens when Mulan appears with a knight in shining armor or is aided by the magic of a wizard companion. (That would have even Shan-Yu running for the fields!) All you need to do to make an Imperial man out of you and yours is to dress up in our warrior and armor costumes! Now, keep in mind that the Samurai-style costumes are inspired by stories from Japan instead of China, but who wouldn't want to help Mulan in her adventure?!
The ancient armor of the Eastern lands was beautiful and functional. It’s no wonder that so many movies have been inspired to have their soldiers wear something similar. You can fit right in with an army of Mulan warriors when you slip into a Samurai costume. After all, if any leader has the wisdom to bring everyone together, it is Mulan! Create an awesome group costume for your season.
Imperial Warrior Costume
While it is critical for the soldiers of the Imperial Army to stand side by side in similar garb, you can’t help but want to stand out just a bit. Show that you’ve earned the Emperor’s honor by wearing the armor of an Imperial Warrior that has really made their mark! No one else really deserves to fight alongside Mulan, anyway. Gleaming gold against shining black is surely the way of the warrior.
Guardian Spirit Mushu
Mulan wouldn't have gotten too far in the animated adventure without some spiritual assistance from her ancestors. Now, perhaps the indomitable dragon of legend was expected to look quite a bit more powerful than the little fire-breathing lizard we ended up meeting. (Heck, even Mulan’s ancestors thought they’d be sending something from Lord of the Rings instead of that pipsqueak, Mushu!) Still, this guy really knows how to add some fire to the fun of the Disney movie, and we understand that a Mushu costume will add a ton of fun to your Mulan costume, too. Whether your little babe is accompanying you as your tiniest guardian or you are keeping an eye on your little Mulan, this dragon is good to go!
If your little Mulan is heading out into the havoc that is Halloween, it might be a good idea to ensure that they’ve got a guardian spirit at their side. We’d love to trust Mushu to the task, but that little dragon can be a little ditzy! Make sure that you have your eyes on your little warrior when you take on the role of the dragon guardian yourself!
Little Mushu the Dragon
If you'd like to keep your warrior ways a bit proportional, you'll be on the lookout for a pint-sized dragon ally at your side. Who can you trust to keep you energized to win the war more than your little tyke?! Plus, every kiddo would love to stretch their wings in a dragon costume! This is a match made by your ancestral spirits, so get ready to help your tyke's fire shine bright.
Guardian Spirit Phoenix
The live-action Mulan movie didn’t just change up the combat. It also brought us a different spiritual companion to help enflame our hero’s ki! The mystical phoenix is the legendary firebird, born from a fire that even Mushu would be jealous of. It is said to channel the light of the sun and was there at the dawning of creation. You certainly can’t go wrong with a mystical companion like that! There are a lot of ways to bring the magical bird along with you on your quest to live out Mulan’s life this Halloween. Combine a few colorful feathers with a shoulder accessory or cape to keep the legendary phoenix on your side. Bring the phoenix along and add a bit of magic for your Halloween hopes!
The phoenix is a mighty creature of mythic proportions. But did you know that it can appear in many different forms, too? Don’t feel obliged to fit into a little birdie costume when you can spread your wings with a pair of Radiant Wings! Not only can you wear them with your warrior look, but you can bring the live-action film to life when Mulan wears these wings herself!
Now, at your first glance, you might think that this bright little bird is a perching parrot. And, okay, we can't deny that it might look that way! But here's the thing. The legendary phoenix is a bird with bright plumage that gleams like fire. It is clever enough to whisper wisdom to those it loves. We have to wonder if this little parrot hasn't been a mighty phoenix all along!
Mulan already had all the heroic qualities needed to help save her family’s honor and the whole Empire! Of course, she didn’t just set out on her horse all on her own, though. There are plenty of critical components to ensure that your adventure goes off without a hitch. Now, you might not have an ancestral sword or the proper Imperial hairstyle to ensure that you’re accepted into the Emperor’s army. Fortunately, we have plenty of Mulan costume accessories to help you live out all your favorite moments from the epic story! Equip your family sword so you're ready to slice your way to victory, or wear the proper mythic wig to keep your identity a secret! Here are a few extra items that you can include to really bring your Mulan look to life!
Where did Mulan’s adventure begin? Was it the announcement of the war? The conscription of her father? No! It all started when she first saw the legendary blade of the Fa family. Start your costumed quest out right when you accentuate your costume with Mulan’s ancestral sword!
There are many reasons you might want to add a little culture to your costume. What if you’re a manly man, masquerading around as a woman warrior? Well, a fan might keep you alive for the attack! Not to mention, Mulan's mother might also be frowning if you forget your fan, too!
If you want to be prepared for anything, you can't trust that your ancestral sword will be at your side. Bring a few extras just in case you find yourself with a bit of extra company! You can't go wrong with a pair of katanas...even if that means you're borrowing blades from Japan.
The one thing that we know for sure is that it is tough to tie a topknot! Even before all the flipping, climbing, and fighting, those warrior hairdos are tough to put together. Fortunately, our own guardian spirits are happy to offer some warrior wigs to make you Mulan!
