Historical Disney Princesses In Period Accurate Dresses

Cosplay Zone

Here’s an interesting take on the Disney princesses that alters their existing gowns into period-accurate costumes. DeviantArtist Claire Hummel researched different periods and then made adjustments so the dresses would fit a specific time in history. She even explains how she altered each dress. Of Ariel from The Little Mermaid she says,

The Little Mermaid is hard to place from a time period standpoint – Grimsby’s wearing a Georgian getup, Ariel’s pink dress with the slashed sleeves subscribes to several eras from the Renaissance to the 1840s, Eric is… Eric.

I went with Ariel’s wedding dress as a starting point since those gigantic leg-o-mutton sleeves (so embarrassingly popular in ’80s wedding fashion) were a great starting point for an 1890s evening gown. It’s also not unfeasible that Eric’s cropped tailcoat could be from the same era, so I’m sticking with my choice. PLUS Ariel with Gibson girl hair? COME ON…

More great news: they are calling this the “initial” collection – which makes me think there will be more of these bags to come. Cathy Dawson, merchandiser for accessories at Disney Parks says, “We are thrilled to introduce Vera Bradley to our accessories assortment.

Disney Trip Planning: Traveling by Car

Do you travel by car to Disney?

There are a few great reasons to travel by car to your Disney destination, but there are also considerable downfalls.

Cost: It really depends on where you are driving from to decide whether the cost of driving becomes more or less than a plane ticket will. Things to consider for cost: gas (and your car’s mpg rating), hotel stay, restaurants, number of people traveling with you. For example, driving with my parents and a friend all in one car to Walt Disney World in Florida from Massachusetts ends up costing around $800-$1,000 if we budget, and up to $1,300 if we don’t pack food. We live 1,300 miles away and it takes about 19 hours of actual driving time to get there. Considering stopping for pee and leg-stretching and food breaks plus one hotel stay on the way there (and another on the way back), we end up getting to…
