Check Out These Historically Correct Disney Princesses

Getting all excited about royalty again this weekend? Kate and Will’s tour of Canada and the royal wedding in Monaco will do that to you. If you have princess fever, you migh enjoy these illustrations by Claire Hummel. She’s tweaked the Disney Princess attire to make it correspond with the time period their stories are set in.  For instance, “instead of Belle donning an A-line gown, she is depicted wearing a set of panniers to enlarge her hips, which was a common fashion in France in the 18th century.” If you like history and fashion, you’ll love this set. After all, the princesses these days are all wearing bathing suits, which are great, but not as cool as panniers!
