As a toddler, there was nothing better than Cinderella. I watched that movie daily — always looking forward to the moment her musical mice friends made her a new dress (because, seriously, how cool is it when they make that shoe elevator?).
And then as I got older and became obsessed with reading, Belle — the witty, intelligent heroine — became my new favorite.
So, each time a new artist creates "real-life" looking Disney princesses, I'm all about it. This time it's Chilean artist, Fernanda Suarez's depictions of modern-day Disney princesses that caught my eye. I love that her depictions include the princesses' passions: Belle still has her book, Jasmine still has her tiger (who also still has a piece of the sultan's underwear in it's mouth).
After a series of extremely traumatizing events, Snow White stumbles on a cottage. I don't know about you, but I don't think my first instinct after narrowly escaping murder would be to clean and cook for whomever lived inside a mysterious house I stumbled on. It also wouldn't be to just go inside and make myself at home, but that's a whole different discussion.
If you've seen the somewhat recent live-action "Cinderella," you know the theme of it is, "Have courage and be kind." Cinderella forgives and serves her step-mother and sisters when they don't deserve it at all. She's also cool about hanging out with mice, which I'd say is going the extra mile.
