Disney Remembers Orlando / PULSE
I wanted to do a piece today, the one year anniversary of the Pulse Night Club shooting. Both of these are very close to my heart. For this piece I wanted to include Disney characters that have been rumored or speculated as gay.  I used the color of the character to assign it a place on the PRIDE flag. (With exception of Terk, whom I used the green of the jungle)

Chic Cinderella
I have drawn drafts of Cinderella since I started this collection in 2014. She has proven a very difficult princess. I think it’s mainly because I wanted to stick with the original movie version. NOT the platinum blonde, blue dress remake. I always loved those moments in the original animation where there is almost nothing but eye lashes and coral lips to Cinderella. When it comes to matching the original animated princess, she is a very simply drawn character. So she was very difficult to draw and still be recognizable. To help sell this modern character as Cinderella, I gave her a (1920’s inspired) headband.

As one of the original, vintage Disney ladies, I wanted to keep her taste vintage and classic. Cinderella is, in my opinion, one of the most damsel-in-distress, “Princessy” Disney girls, and I wanted that to come across. She’s not as strong-willed as Belle or Tiana. Cinderella’s story is obviously, based around her shoes. I didn’t want to give her just glass heels or a modern take on something clear, (That’s what I see in fan art all the time) but I still wanted them to be the focus of the outfit. Her outfit is all light and monochromatic accented with GOLD to complement her fabulous, gold shoes. I am a firm believer that Cinderella’s original dress is white/silver and NOT BLUE like the redesigns so I was wanted to keep with that color palette rather than light blue. Her bracelet is designed after the swirls and organic feel of the carriage and her Michael Kors watch will keep this lady from running late!

Chic Tiana
Here we have Disney’s Bayou, Boss, Business Woman!
Tiana is, I think, one of Disney’s strongest female characters! I wanted her and her look to command attention and respect, but still be fun. She’s a musical, southern gal who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. (That’s why her sleeves are rolled up)
