Our Forgotten Favorites by MistyTang Our Forgotten Favorites by MistyTang
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. :heart:
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. :nod:
I honestly do not understand why people seem to be put-off by having their eyes closed. :lol:

Works in progress:

At the end of Mulan, the Emperor gave her the crest of the royal family. Making her a princess.

In the original myth Meg was the princess of Thebes and Hercules's first wife. In some version he killed her and their children, in some just the kids and she was given to his cousin. In the latter she became his cousin's wife and they had a couple kids together.

I love the closed eyes. They look like they're reviewing happy memories...at least, that's what I think.
