We just came back from our favorite Disney World castle visit recently and the planning was about 10 months of my life! It was a lot of work, but worth it in the end. I detailed every second of our trip (I know… I’m too type A), but I wanted to make sure my little lady saw every one of her favorite princesses. It was the perfect week of make-believe, magic, and non-stop smiling. We saw so many iconic princesses and it made our trip unforgettable.
I just had the pleasure of checking out an amazing Chilean digital artist Fernanda Suarez who is working on a super awesome project on Modern Princesses; or what they would look like in today’s society. The girl power/energy you see in their beautiful faces will really touch you! Love me some kick-butt Belle or a super-smart Cinderella. The level of detail in her work is unbelievable; such talent behind this true labor of love! Suarez will take you through her amazing process of color, definition, sketching, and much more, starting with the princess we all know and love.
Do your girls like dressing up as these iconic princesses? Here are some cool ideas for the next time around the castle!
