I purchased the new Disney Mulan and two older Mulans along with the three Tiana dolls from the Disney. (I did a post on Tiana previously.) This is the one with the new articulated body.
Here is the close-up on her face.
I have three other Mulan dolls. Two of them are Mattel and one is Disney. One of my Mattels is a Secret Hero Mulan and the other is a Princess Mulan (Hae). The Disney Mulan doll that I have on a Liv body which I call Risa. I really like the faces on the Mulans dolls I have. I planned to purchase new dolls as body donors for the dolls I have with paler complexions that need a new articulated body.I find the gowns of the Mulan dolls are more worth keeping than most of the Princess dolls to me. They don’t look like the old-fashioned prom gowns like most of the princess gowns. Sorry this doll had been sitting around a little while so her dress is a little wrinkeled.
The flat shoes of both the Tiana and Mulan will work well in my doll shoe collection. Green Tiana shoes are flats and red Mulan shoes are more like ballet slippers. These shoes will be OK on Barbie but they are really great for dolls like Francie, Skipper or Happy Family Grandmother. Francie's little bow shoes might look good on these feet too!
New Mulan feet
I am glad that I went to the Disney store for this purchase and not order it on line because it allowed me to see the complexions of the Disney dolls. The complexions of the Disney dolls differ from the complexions of the dolls Mattel sold. If I had order on line, I might have gotten a Cinderella or a Sleeping Beauty doll and they are not as light as their Mattel counterparts. They looked closer to Fashionista Summer in complexion. Mulan was paler than both those dolls. I didn’t check the Snow White and will check her the next time I go.
Mulan comes wearing a pair of flesh colored panties.
She also has flower hair tie.
You can tell from her photo that she is pale. Here photos of her with the new Asian Rachelle. She is less pink and a bit paler that Raquelle.
I’m not sure how I feel about the knees of the new Disney doll. Like Liv dolls, these aren’t the sexiest of knees and it doesn’t show well in a short skirt. So I will use the body on a doll that I don’t plan to put in short dresses. I looked through by possible candidate dolls that fit that description that needed a body and came up with....
I had been thinking about putting her on a Liv body. Many of my Asian dolls are on Liv bodies so it is time to mix it up!
Her body is a good match!
