A sight lovely to see by shoomlah A sight lovely to see by shoomlah
[EDITORIAL NOTE: as much I love this piece for it's own merits, I'd also like to point out that I drew this three years ago and no longer consider it to be a valid attempt at a historical Jasmine!  I have plans to redo it one way or the other, just stepping in to make that clear for the time being. :) ]

Okay, these are getting more and more complicated, but this one was fun.

Let's be frank- Aladdin is hardly an exercise in historical accuracy. Combine that with Claire knowing veeeery little about historical* Middle Eastern clothing before starting on Jasmine, and you've got yourself a few days of research before digging into this thing.

It took some effort to track down some midriff-baring outfits but BY GEORGE I DID, thank you Persian fashion plates. I now know what sirwal are called (besides Hammer pants), and that Persian women wore some pretty sweet little jackets that I wish I owned.

OH ALSO I DREW A KITTY

*seemed silly to say "pre-Islamic" when I ended up researching pre- and post-Islamic fashion.

This is pretty much my favorite of your Disney drawings, unless you did Merida and I somehow missed it?!

The original Aladdin was actually set in China. So she should look completely different. ;p

please, please read the FAQ!  It's linked on the piece and almost every other page, and it addresses this pretty directly.

I love this outfit! The movie clothes are very plain and cartoonish which I guess is right about the rest of the movie visually (excluding the "A Whole New World" scene) I also prefer Jasmine's hair and jewellery here.
