Disney.com Princess Dress-Up Dolls: Tiana  
If there's one thing to be counted on it's my procrastination. I didn't get to work on these until Wednesday evening, so if you came looking for them and continually came away frustrated that the pictures weren't up I'm sorry :C

So that's the bad news. Here's the good news: I'm done! Here they are!

Given the history of crazy dresses the Disney website has, some of Tiana's dresses & accessories didn't surprise me in their wackiness. But I was pleasantly surprised by the presence of Caribbean culture in Tiana's outfits as opposed to just doing big Southern dresses or Twenties flapper fringe dresses. It seemed very smart & globally aware of Disney, so good job there :D

If you'd like to see the rest of the Princesses, hop-a-long to my Flickr page to see all the dresses in one place or enjoy the individual posts (and commentary!): Snow White, Belle, Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmine, Aurora, Pocahontas, Mulan, How To Save Your Dress-Up Doll Tutorial, & Disney.com Princess Website Updates, Disney Princess Website Update (TIANA LIVES).






I can't decide if this dress was originally meant to be green with white detail
or some deerhide something out of Pocahontas's closet.
Nice flesh-colored shoes, though.




OMG SCARLETT O'HARA WTF?!!1!
OK, not really...
BUT STILL!
Watching you >8[

The masks you see here don't really go with any of the dresses.
But this one was certainly very pretty - enlarge to see the detail!


Even her umbrellas get the naturalistic treatment.


Another incongruous mask.




Tiana the ballerina?


I love this dress - it's so colorful ^_^


Seriously, Tia? Watch your bow placement D8


She certainly loves dresses with petals and leaves.


I love Tiana's wedding dress.
And I can't explain the white stripes on her legs.
Just pretend they're traditional.

Like with most of the Disney dress-ups, I have some dresses here that I adore and others that I just loathe. The 2nd I adore the color and shape for absolutely, the yellow dress I think is adorable (though we could lose the crown on it and it does look a little bit like a ballet costume XD), the burgundy-skirted dress under that is fun (...in a Chiquita Banana kind of way but still XD;;;), and the lavender and teal dresses are simple but sweet. Some of them, though, are just weird weird weird. 1, 3 and 4 I think are ugly as sin (that one Yahoo survey thought that the commercial blue dress was matronly? What about #4: that is BEYOND matronly), and I just don't care for the ones with petals/leaves on them (particularly the orange one. Ew.). *sigh* But, I guess, as I said I usually end up this way regarding most of the Disney dress-up sets. Guess these guys can't be expected to be great fashion designers. XD
