Princess Tiana, is a beautiful and strong willed character from a working class background in an early 1900s glamorous world. She’s wearing a dress similar to what Veronica Lake wore for the 1940s “I married a witch” film. The original dress was black but of course I altered the dress to suit her Princess Frog green motif as well as adding some nature looking features.
My redesign of Kida from Disney’s animated movie “Atlantis.” What a great movie this is, my redesign is based on their design concept. Pre modern, strong, intelligent people is how I saw them and I tried to capture this with tight wrappings on the body with fabric and bulky jewellery. Her status as princess and royalty hopefully is seen through the draping of the clothing.
My redesign of Meg from Hercules.Sassy, flirtatious and strong willed. She is probably the Disney character with the most sex appeal and I wanted to portray this with her clothing and pose. She wears my interpretation of a Roman/Greek tunic held together by knots.
My redesign of Disneys Mulan.When redesigning Mulan, I wanted to focus on layering, clothing and transparency. Mulan was an individual who struggled to fit in with the social norms at the time and I wanted her to look almost constrained but the flowiness of the layers built around the fitted structure shows her desire for freedom and breaking free. Of course her iconic comb and sword was also included!
My redesign of Disneys Esmeralda from Hunchback of Notre DameA character found in Victor Hugos novel ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame.’ When it was released as a Disney production it had dealt with adult themes such as Frollos lust for Esmeralda. When redesigning Esmeralda I just thought of layers, noise and movement. Bells and trinkets were added to her costume to give a sound with every step she makes. The thigh jewellery is an interpretation of the necklace she gave Quasimodo’s shape.
My redesign of Disneys Jane from TarzanThis adventurous lady is a British born y known as Jane. Her and her father travellednto the jungles to research on gorillas, there she met Tarzan. Her redesign very much latches onto the original but I added more frills and layers.
My redesign of Disneys PocahontasWith Pocahontas redesign, I wanted earthy tones and textures.
My redesign of Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin.Staying true to the original design and I colour, I looked into the culture and clothing at the time and put my own twist on it. I looked at pre islamic, middle Eastern fashion in particular as well as looking at jewellery at the time and emphasising it.
My redesign of Belle from Disney’s The Beauty and the Beast.Belles original dress had texture on her dress so I wanted to add these layers to the dress as well as the iconic rose that plays a part with the Beast’s destiny.I imagine Belle to gracefully sweep the dance floor and library with her dress.
