Disney Princesses Are Portrayed More “Historically Accurately” (PHOTOS)

Much like every other girl in America, artist Claire Hummel grew up watching Disney cartoons, and was obsessed with the Disney Princesses. Over the span of two years, Claire has used her artistic gifts to draw the costumes she thought would be more appropriate given the time frame of each princess’s story. To be honest, I think they look pretty similar to Disney’s original versions, which isn’t surprising since Disney has teams of artists doing research on this sort of thing. Anyway, they’re a pretty cool rendering of America’s original pledge class.

As for Snow White, she went with a mid 1500s Germany look, which again…looks pretty similar to the Disney version.

And she just gave Tiana’s 1920s flapper gown a little more flair. It’s actually really cute.

Either way, the drawings are just another fabulous nod to whichever Princess is your fave.
