Mulan: Fa Mulan

mulan cosplay - fa mulan by xmonk3yxLook at me
I will never pass for a perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter
Can it be
I'm not meant to play this part?

Now I see
That if I were truly to be myself I would break my family's heart…

When Fa Mulan heard about her elderly father, the only man in her family, Fa Zhou, being forced to join the military, she decided to disguise herself as a man and take his place. When Fa Zhou learned about this, he prayed to his family ancestors, who ordered their “Great Stone Dragon” to protect her. Little did they know that the Great Stone Dragon failed to awaken and that Mushu, a much smaller dragon, was the one who went forth to protect Mulan.

Please note that this is only a cropped version of xmonk3yx’s cosplay of Mulan. Be sure to check out the original in her Deviant Art account to see the whole image! Thanks again to Niena for sending this in!
