Historically correct Disney Princesses

I have a love affair with long flowy dresses. The kind you need to pick up so you can walk…ah yes. Doesn’t really matter with the color, just choose a Disney princess dress. They have practically every color. But are they accurate? Meaning historically accurate?

Well let me show you! I found these illustrations and fell in love with them! Here are just a few of the most popular princesses in historical accurate clothing. You can find more about the author and illustrator here.

Ariel (1890)

Princess Aurora (1485)

Snow White (early 16th Century)

Cinderella (1860)

Jasmine (pre Islamic)

Belle (French court, 1770)

Which one is your favorite? I think mine is Aurora or Cinderella… but I love Jasmines so much too!

Thank you Disney

There are lots of things I hope Emma doesn’t pick up from Disney princess movies. And we’ve had some talks already about bad attitudes/choices the princes/princesses made. However, there are some wonderful things too….and it definitely comes with perks!

Food Coloring

Belle Birthday Cake

Whoever created and invented food coloring made my weekend. Emma’s cake is nothing but white cake and whipped white icing. But thanks to them, Emma was ecstatic over her Belle Princess cake.

The stand is a beautiful Polish pie dish upside down on top of a candle holder.  Try and not look at Belle’s googly eyes. They’re hypnotic.


The girls loved it and it was amazingly great, especially since it’s just a white cake. The inside was pink. Brilliant pink. Which the little princesses didn’t eat-they focused on the icing. Such good 3 year olds. 🙂

Belle Princess CakeI’m sure this whole post has gotten a certain someone annoyed all these pictures are portrait. Didn’t mean to but I certainly recognized a pattern in how I take pictures.


Yes, another GIVEAWAY!!!! And this one is for the momm’y, aunt, friend, grandmother…whoever….has a little princess in their lives and would like to give her a little bling. I am giving away a crystal necklace and bracelet set. It should fit all children. (fits around MY head)

*it’s made with lightweight plastic beads (choke hazard for the tiny tots- this is for mature princesses only) and is stretchy. All you have to do is comment- it’s that simple. A winner will be chosen through an online random number generator (www.random.org) next Tuesday. I’ll announce the winner Wednesday or Thursday.

This would be perfect for birthday’s or even Christmas…but I bet you already thought of that huh. Well, never mind. Good luck!!!
