LAST ONE. Bwuh.

I adore Tangled for many reasons, but historical accuracy isn't one of them. It's actually the first Disney film that feels entirely set in its own fantasy world, with no real ties to any particular time period or setting- unless you count that ever-forgiving time period of "Ren Faire."

Since this is the last one in the series (so far as official princesses go), I thought I'd treat myself and just have fun with it. I drew up concepts for both the 16th century (the slashed sleeves) and 18th (Keane's initial inspiration), but in the interest of choosing a time period I hadn't touched yet I ended up going with the late Regency. There are a ton of gowns circa 1820 that have those inimitably princessy sleeves, and those palace guards aren't fooling anyone.

-Claire, who made a video for this but still needs to edit that nonsense together

I definitely love Rapunzel's design the best, although all of your historical princesses are amazing; I keep coming back to stare. Rapunzel's color scheme seems to match the style of the added details in the clothing and the lighting of the lantern very well. Perhaps the lighting itself is why I like this picture most; it gives the image a more solid, present feel, despite their being no background, and that relaxes the eye. Instead of floating in a void, she seems grounded.

Please don't change the eyes.

No offence, but your princesses are all perfect the way they are.

Ohhh. So that was a prank?

Good one!

I was worried there, because half of your princess's opened eyes made them look like they were intoxicated.

No offense.

Looking forward to more of your artwork.

:D

Although I'd wonder about an actual timeline with the Disney Princesses, and where Frozen fits in.
