She has the highest body count of any Disney heroine, princess, or villain, I'd be pretty damn proud to :)

I love your 7 deadly sins princesses, they all fit so perfectly, Mulan fits pride because the society she comes from is all about pride and honor and all she wanted was to make her parents proud and uphold their family honor. It's a clever idea the way you've matched each character to a sin even though they are not necessarily like that :D I think they're right up there with the Twisted Princesses if you've ever seen them :)

I feel like I don't understand why Mulan is in heels and a short skirt, or why she's meant to represent pride.
If Mulan is anything, she's very humble; the emperor offers her a position in government and she turns him down to go back to her family instead. In the original story, she settles down after the war and gets married, and the whole saving-China thing never gets brought up again.
Aside from that, Mulan's story is very much about the equalization of gender roles, and when she performs her heroics, she does it under the guise of a man...so heels and a short skirt? Doesn't make a lot of sense, to me.

I know this series is quite confusing of why is "this" character in "this" Sin, basically i think the disney characters doesn't represent a sin 'coz they're heroines not villains. I was just incorporating modern fashion to the characters and of which character could slightly possibly represent a sin, in a sort of TWIST. This series was also a bit inspired of the TWISTED PRINCESS series by ~jeftoon01. But his work has a very strong twisted story while mine isn't as strong as his. In relation to Mulan's situation; I was to put her in a traditional chinese kimono but it would be unfair b'coz the other characters in this series wore a modern fashion. So i put her on mini skirt and heels but her shirt is still kinda related to the kimono. As of PRIDE; a person like Mulan would never be too proud of it but to be humble, but there are others who would be showy and brag of it and that is the twist I incorporated for her. Every single of them (this series) has their own twist to incorporate the sin.

Every artist has it's own complex imagination and maybe my mind is very complex too, i always wanted to make a series like this from the very start i joined DA but my skills aren't that impressive yet. If you still puzzled feel free to comment. =)
