I bet you thought I was done with these. I'm not~
"But Misty, three of these ladies aren't really princesses." Yeah, but I'm the queen of rationalization. So there.
I consider Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas
) a "princess" because if Jack is the Pumpkin King
, what does that make her?
Same for Jane--if Tarzan is King
of the jungle, what does that make her~?
And Meg, I think I remember some variation of the myth where she was like a princess or something? I may be mistaken. But, in any case, she marries a demigod
, so she's entitled to be a "princess" (more so than Mulan, in my opinion).
And Kida is obviously a princess, so no rationalization needed there.
Of these four, Kida is my favorite. Hands down, bar none. She is just a powerful
character, in every meaning of the word. I adore her. She even gave Pocahontas a run for her money for my favorite in terms of design.
My sister, *zimeta08
, likes Jane best for our "forgotten" favorites. (Jane is a very close second for me.) And Kida is also my little sister ~ratscout
's "forgotten" favorite.Other Princesses works in this series can be seen here: [link]
EDIT: I addressed this before on a previous Princesses pieces, but I've already gotten this question a few times on this one, so: for my "princesses" pieces, I wanted them to have a dreamy and demure look, and I felt that by having their eyes closed that would lend to the mood.
I honestly do not understand why people seem to be put-off by having their eyes closed.
