All the illustration were spellbinding. We are only missing Mulan, Aurora, Merida, Pocahontas, and Tiana to make this set complete. Let’s hope that @STARshadowmagic will surprise us with more Princess X Kimono Illustrations.

The fictional character of Alice lives a posh lifestyle in the mid to late 1800’s Victorian era of London England. She is highly intelligent, and like any well brought up girl she is sophisticated and a great thinker for a seven and a half year old child. Alice is extremely brave, not being afraid to venture far out into new places or the unknown and she will become determined to investigate anything curious that makes her wonder.
Surprisingly, Alice is very good at giving herself advice but seldom does she follow it. Because of this she is lead by her own subconscious into one silly or outrageous scenario after another. When Alice enters the bizarre dimension of Wonderland and later steps into the alternative realm of Wonderland, the Looking Glass, she finds it harder and harder to maintain her composure and keep her patience because of all the poppycock and nonsense that occurs in these strange, undiscovered places. Alice also can be unintentionally mischievous and hypocritical, for when anyone words something incorrectly in a sentence, Alice will call them out on it and correct them on the “vulgar” use of grammar. Yet at times Alice herself does not speak correctly but never catches herself slipping or making these mistakes she criticizes others of being guilty of. This causes Alice to come off as arrogant and narcissistic at times even though she means well.
Ariel is a bright, spirited and headstrong mermaid with a strong passion for adventure and exploration. Her tendency to explore the more mysterious depths of the ocean (or more importantly, the world beyond the ocean) can lead to an array of problems to both herself, her friends, and in the confines of her personal life—as seen through her constant confrontations with her protective father, King Triton. Nevertheless, Ariel’s selflessness, compassion, and intuitive way of thinking often resolve such problems, as she always takes full responsibility for her actions.
Ariel is also shown to be extremely compassionate and loving towards almost all living things; more so platonically than romantically. This is most notably seen through her friendship with her closest companion, Flounder, and even her father’s court composer, Sebastian who, despite being against Ariel’s recklessness and overly adventurous nature, is given a considerably large amount of love and respect from the princess, which is often reciprocated. With Flounder, she is comforting and patient, as well as protective, with the tendency to risk her own life for the guppies on various occasions. Her ability to befriend all various creatures, be they an abandoned killer whale, an irrationally feared sea creature and even the son of one of her nemesis is displayed throughout the franchise. Before she met Eric, she was rarely interested in romantic relationships, not even with any of the merman princes that Triton tried to get her to marry. The only known exception was Prince Waverly of the Pacifica Kingdom, with whom she was infatuated. After meeting Eric, however, Ariel is revealed to be a romantic, willing to make daring sacrifices for the sake of true love. Her love for him is validated by Eric’s returned selflessness and sacrificial actions for the sake of love; notably seen during the climax of the film.
Belle has gained a significant amount of intelligence over the years due to her love of books, which have provided her with an elevated vocabulary, an active imagination, and an open mind. She is very confident and outspoken in her opinions and seldom likes being told what to do. Despite all this, she does not have very many friends. Her smarts and free-thinking attitude make her stand out from her fellow townspeople, who regard her as a little odd behind her beauty. Unlike most characters in the film, Belle is not concerned about her or others’ appearances and is able to look past how people appear and see into their hearts. This is how Belle manages to break the Beast’s curse and restore love and laughter to the castle.
She is quite resolute when it comes to stating and upholding her opinions and maintaining her ideas. Even though Belle says that she dreams of adventure, she also states that she wishes for a friend who accepts her for who she is. This is because everyone in town criticizes her for doing her own thing and does not understand her, which makes her feel like she does not fit in. However, despite this, even when people gave her a hard time, she never changed, but came to a better understanding of herself. This made the biggest difference when she broke the spell and charmed the Beast just by being herself. In the Disney Comics New Adventures of Beauty and the Beast, set a few years before the events of the first film, Belle was also shown to be somewhat bigoted in her views, refusing to associate herself with the boys in her village due to unfortunate experiences with them in the past (then slightly amending it to exclude her father after the latter jokingly asked their pet pig, Pierre, if he heard Belle consider him no different than the pig). The same serial also implies that despite her love of fairy tales, she herself did not believe in the supernatural, as when trying to explore a certain part of the Black Forest before encountering an owl, she mentioned in her thoughts she knew there were not any mythical creatures in there.
Despite being raised in toxicity and emotional abuse, Cinderella declared herself independent and strong-willed by remaining kind-hearted and self-loving unlike her cruel step family, not allowing the bitterness surrounding her life to overtake her and morph her into someone as cruel as her stepfamily. She makes the most of her misfortunes by remaining optimistic of the possibilities of a brighter future, keeping herself preoccupied with enforced housework and friendly bonds built with her pets, and dozens of mice that have found themselves trapped over the years by Tremaine’s mouse traps, only to be rescued and spared by Cinderella. In gratitude, the mice would become loyal companions to Cinderella, providing her with the company and serving as diligent helpers should something troubling occur. The devotion of the mice would ultimately play a crucial role in the young woman escaping her abusive household, thus furthering the example of how Cinderella’s evergreen kindness towards others, despite her situation, would ultimately lead to her uprising.
As the queen regnant of the kingdom of Arendelle, Elsa appears calm, reserved, regal and – unlike her sister – graceful and poised. Beneath this cool and collected appearance, however, Elsa is quite turbulent; in truth, the Snow Queen was, for a majority of her young life, troubled by her abilities, a feeling which stems from a traumatic incident as a child. When she was younger, she had cared strongly for Anna and, despite being the more mature and cautious of the two sisters, Elsa was still quite playful and used her magic to have fun and goof off.
However, after witnessing her magic nearly cause her sister’s death, Elsa lived in fear and trauma for a great amount of her life as she became too terrified to let her powers overdevelop. She consequently chose isolation from everyone she cared for, including Anna, out of the presumption that her isolation would protect them from her power. This would eventually result in years of loneliness, misery, bitterness, and grief. Regret would gradually take its toll on her as well when tragedies struck throughout her life from the accident with her sister to the death of her parents, leaving them both to mourn and grieve alone.
Jasmine is a rather multi-layered character; incredibly independent and strong in many ways. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind, no matter who she’s up against; whether it be her father, Jafar, or some other villain corrupting Agrabah, Jasmine won’t hesitate to stand up for what’s right, mostly for the safety of others as opposed to herself. This aspect of her character is greatly explored in the television series, where it is shown that Jasmine is very much ruler of Agrabah alongside her father, as opposed to the stereotypical princess that merely sits around on the sidelines. She is shown to take part in most of the political disputes and conversations, often gives suggestions on how to make peace (which, more often than not, come out successful) and is shown to have the same amount of respect her father earns.
Rapunzel is a spirited and determined young woman. Throughout her young life, she’s dreamt of escaping her tower to experience the outside world. Due to the strict order of her sole parental figure, Gothel, however, she remained inside the tower. The use of manipulation and emotional abuse in her upbringing by Gothel has led Rapunzel to believe that the world is highly dangerous, and that remaining in the confines of her sheltered walls is in her best interest. Additional misfortunes born through Rapunzel’s upbringing would include such traits as anxiety and low self-esteem. Gothel would often victimize herself whenever she and Rapunzel would hit a bump in their relationship, riddling the latter with guilt, which would, in turn, motivate her to obey Gothel’s commands in hopes of making amends. This was all according to plan for Gothel, who relied on Rapunzel’s emotional instability to forever maintain control over the princess. With Gothel possessing such a strong emotional hold – having forced Rapunzel to believe she was her only source of security and comfort in a dangerous and unforgiving world – the odds against Rapunzel were high.
8. Snow White
Snow White is well known for her kindness and optimism — both of which act as her greatest strengths, as they’ve guided her safely through the various hardships faced throughout her life. She is quick to charm, winning the trust and admiration of the Prince, forest animals, and the seven dwarfs rather quickly, proving her kindness and pleasant aura makes her a beloved figure. Coined as the “Fairest one of All”, Snow White’s beauty lies both within her physical appearance and pure heart. With no negativity within her, Snow White is the physical embodiment of positivity and innocence.
9. Tinker Bell
Despite her cute appearance, Tinker Bell is very independent, opinionated, sassy, stubborn and hot-tempered. Upon meeting Wendy and other human females, Tink immediately shows disgust and irritation, mostly out of jealousy. This drives Tink to perform acts both selfish, and even murderous, much to Peter’s annoyance. However, despite her rough interior, at her core, Tinker Bell is devoted and loyal to those she loves, and will eventually come to terms with those she initially resents, should they prove themselves worthy of friendly treatment. This can be seen, most notably, with her relation to Wendy Darling in the original film.
Some fans have assumed that Tinker Bell has a romantic crush on Peter. However, that theory has been contradicted several times by Margaret Kerry, who has said, “Tinker Bell was never in love with Peter Pan, she was sort of a groupie. Peter would go on his adventures and she would get to go with him, and what she was really worried about with Wendy was that maybe he wouldn’t take her on the adventures anymore, he would take that ugly old girl! So that’s what she was jealous of.”
