Can you show me how to sit like a princess?
Now with Belle and Snow White!
It’s world book day today (in the UK) and my son’s school did a thing where the kids were allowed to go in dressed as characters in books. In reality this turned out to be that in the reception class my son is in (4-5-year olds) most girls showed up dressed in Disney princess dresses and most boys in Marvel/DC superhero outfits. In the school yard I overheard one of the boys make a comment to a girl that she couldn’t be a princess since she had short hair. The bell rang that instant and all the kids ran off so I was just left there steaming with a piece on my mind I couldn’t get out there and then. So here’s short haired Disney Princesses.
20 years ago when I first started working at Disney, Pocahontas was the first character I ever officially worked on. Even though it was a LONG time ago, I still find myself doodling her when my mind wanders. Sometimes a year may pass before she shows up on my paper. But, I still feel like that kid walking through the doors of Disney 20 years later. Hello again, Pocahontas. It’s been a while. :)

Sometimes when I doodle I have a “go to” pose that I enjoy drawing. This one seems to be a favorite of mine. Similar pose, different character. A change of hair style, hand gesture and clothes make the whole thing seem new again. A perfect “princess pose”. It often happens when I’m not thinking about it, as if a character is just stopping by to say hello. And, it always brings a smile to my face.

But, you see, I have the other slipper.

So, when I first started counseling in high school, one thing I was told to do was say “Okay” whenever someone paid me a compliment. It was a good middle ground between tearing myself apart and accepting the compliment, which was too difficult for me to do. I still do it sometimes, and I even say “Okay,” sometimes when my husband says he loves me.
