Disney Princess Designer Dolls: Video Stills & Full Doll Photos  

Watch the video here

I also really liked the background you see in the video, so I made a tile of it to use as a desktop background.

Previous Disney Princess Designer Collection Posts

ETA: I'm not impartial. I actually made this post because I really like these dolls. All of them. I don't think they look weird, or cheap, or like a poor adaptation of some really awesome concept art. I thought they came out beautifully for the style they choose to adapt them in and the materials they chose to use.

I had been really excited to share this post, not just as news, but as an extension of something I liked. I thought the community would be as excited as I was, and in that I could not have been more wrong.

I actually started a tally after the first 20 comments, and now, not surprisingly, 67% of all comments had some complaint or outright dislike for the dolls. Within itself, that's fair. Not everyone has to be a fan or like everything about them, and has the right to express their opinion. But at this point it just feels like this:

So at this point, exhausted from the constant stream of unhappy comments, I'm asking for a "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" moratorium. This isn't an official Mod policy of any kind that you'll penalized for or feel like you should apologize for, just an ask for recognition that the original poster started out with the best of happy intentions that have long since fled.

thanks! Tia is my only must, though I do like Snow more now. I just wish Belle had the hair in her art & not the beehive of doom

beehive of doom

That's exactly what I thought too! Her dress is so pretty but the hair... :(

Ariel & Rapunzel are so beautiful ♥
laurenpale_lamb on August 26th, 2011 02:48 pm (UTC)
Mulan is gorgeous too <33

Wow, their lashes are loooong *___*

Again, I like Snow White very much - she has a beautiful face, great hair and a stunning dress.
Ariel has really long hair and strange hair-do, doesn't she? But I like her face … she looks so mature ^^ The dress is okay, but I don't think that the color suits the dress. Mulan is adorable <3 But Pocahontas disappoints me :/ I like the design of the dress very much, but I think they've chosen the wrong material: it is too stiff for the design and it doesn't look elegant. Rapunzel has freckles! So cute <3

oh! nd I would be remiss not to mention the travesty of Jasmine's new eyes. WTF

Am I the only one freaked out by the eyelashes?
~Sill - Nice catch, nanoja!: Graces ~ Sophie - seriouskierwynn on August 26th, 2011 03:43 pm (UTC)
No, I'm with you. I think I'd be tempted to trim the eye lashes if/when I get one.

snow white is soooo beautiful. I think she's my favourite.
too bad I don't think you could afford buying her...
Abigail: Disney Princess Designer Collectionmdmbrightside on August 26th, 2011 03:22 pm (UTC)
I don't know - I could probably save up if I wanted to :P

Wow, I'm kind of digging Snow White! She's so pretty! And Mulan came out great! I love her dress! But Ariel is the only one for me! :)

About her faces, I think Ariel, Belle, Cinderella and Aurora are the most beautiful. I don't really like the others, and I specially dislike Mulan, Jasmine and Rapunzel :( (no offense for those who like them!)

Their dresses could be a lot better too, a lot of them are pretty plain... or are made with bad fabrics.

And their hair... I love Ariel and Pocahontas hair, and Cinderella's is pretty too, but the rest of them... I don't like Snow White and Tiana's style, they seem old ladies with that hair, and Jasmine, Belle and Mulan have pretty awful styles too.

In my opinion Ariel is the most beautiful doll. She has the best face up, dress and hair. Cinderella is my second favourite, but I think they could have done the dress prettier.

It seems Mulan, Ariel and Aurora doesn't have accesories :(

I really wish I liked these more! I collect dolls, but they're not doing it for me. Ariel, Jasmine, and Pocahontas are ok, but I'd still want to clip the weird long lashes. I think it's the giant hair that's killing it for me on most of them. Also, some of them (especially Belle) have waaaay too much makeup on. They could have easily done a paint job that looked more faded, like actual shadow.

I'd love to keep this video does anyone know a way to save it to my desktop?

This is awesome thank you for all the work. I actually like Belle, she has this cool 50's vibe for me. I've seen old Pix of my Mom she had hair this big HAHA

I've realized now that there aren't pictures of their shoes...
Ms. Pollenpuff: Ariel Flowerdestructogirl77 on August 26th, 2011 05:33 pm (UTC)
Has anyone noticed that Ariel, Aurora and Mulan don't have a little purse or accessory in their hand?
Abigail: Disney Princess Designer Collectionmdmbrightside on August 26th, 2011 07:15 pm (UTC)
Though they have some trinket in their hair.

I'm torn apart between Belle and Rapunzel. I have money to buy two of them but I want to buy some of the journals, mugs, and other stuff. Maybe I ask my parents to buy one for my XMAS presents.
genforever246genforever246 on August 26th, 2011 06:22 pm (UTC)
Personally, I think that the girls with their hair flowing should have had it down to the mid back because if they have it at that length, Rapunzel's do has no meaning because if everyone has the same length of hair, then Rapunzel is not special anymore.
Salmon Pinksalmon_pink on August 26th, 2011 06:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for these, it's great to be able to see all the details in their faces, especially the make-up. Loving the shine to Snow White's lipstick.

I'm gonna try my absolute best to buy all of them!
I don't even care how much it costs me because ♥_____________♥
Maxfield Stantonmollyisacatlady on August 26th, 2011 07:57 pm (UTC)
so much marge simpson hair.
candyintheraincandyintherain on August 26th, 2011 08:03 pm (UTC)
I like Ariel and Jasmine a lot, but the other aren't so great. Pocahontas looks PISSED. And Belle looks like...well, a toy. I feel like all of the other look very elegant and refined and something that should be on display, and Belle just looks very...toy-like.
Amanda Panda: ariel facepalmshlupquack on August 26th, 2011 09:50 pm (UTC)
Pocahontas kind of has duckface going on.
cassandra ☆彡chiixhideki on August 26th, 2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
they're all quite awesome! except belle and aurora, kinda disappointed in those...

i can't justify buying to many of these, so i'll just be getting the ADORABLE rapunzel doll.
cassandra ☆彡chiixhideki on August 26th, 2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
and pocahontas looks kinda weird to me, too. idk.

After seeing the video, I definitely want Jasmine all the more now, I think she is the best done out of all of them. I really loved Rapunzel's sketch but I've always thought that they messed up somehow on the Rapunzel doll faces (except for the limited edition doll). I also really like Snow White, I think I'll get her too :).
*Michele*mich311 on August 27th, 2011 03:52 am (UTC)
Thank you for taking the time to post this!

My thoughts:

Jasmine's eyes are all sorts of not right, she's looking all over the place, they're not placed correctly. Her forehead is also too elongated.

Mulan's drawing is beautiful what's with her beehive?!

Pocahontas looks like she could be Regina George from Mean Girls, that BEOTCH!!

They're just ugly! They should've kept them true to the drawings with their eyes closed.

They made Snow look all growed up, as the Rug Rats would say.

Finally, Rapunzel's face is too fat it doesn't look like her.
dark_rapunzeldark_rapunzel on August 30th, 2011 04:37 pm (UTC)
Wouldn't dolls with their eyes closed have been so unique and beautiful! I would be very tempted to get them if they had done that.

As is, however, I only really love Ariel.

The long eyelashes work on some of them, but Pocahontas should not have had them. A couple of the other girls shouldn't have either, but it is especially wrong looking on Pocahontas.
