Elsa and Anna Limited Edition March Dolls.

This my first time purchasing a limited edition doll from Disney.  I always kind of chuckled thinking of old men surrounded by young beautiful dolls, but I saw the press release on Disney’s blog and decided I needed to have the Elsa because I’m in love with her Coronation dress.  My father decided to purchase the Anna doll to sell for profit on eBay (yes, he has become a scalper).  Now, I ordered these almost a month and a half ago and they just came in this Tuesday.  The face molds are perfect, especially compared to the November dolls which, in my opinion, didn’t resemble the characters at all.  Here are some detail shots I took earlier.

Disney Princess Redesigns

Suuuuuuuuuuch old news.  Oh well, get over it.  It’s still important.  These are the images that little girls (and boys!) will see and as we all know, media representation is very important.  In order of best to worst, I present the new princesses.

1. Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)

Just an addition of glitter.

2. Rapunzel (Tangled)

Luckily the newer princesses seemed to suffer the least.  She still looks dead inside to me.

3. Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

Like her new hair, but the dress looks so much cheaper.  Why did they take out the seams on the bodice? Her face is all wrong too.

4. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

I like the color change quite a lot.  The hair looks like a hot mess.

ari

5. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

This caused quite the uproar because her new dress is nowhere to be found in the movie.  To be fair, the dress is quite ugly and she seems to suffer from an excess of accessories.  I do like her neutral makeup tones and hair change.  To me, she looks more like the movie ariel in the redesign.

sno

6. Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves)

Meh.  This modernized version takes out many details that I think are Snow’s defining characteristics.

jas

7. Jasmine (Aladdin)

I hate this one.  They changed so much about Jasmine.  Why did they give her pink lipstick and hoop earrings?  They specifically made a choice to white wash Jasmine

cindy

8. Cinderella

I could scream.  Everything is different and about ten times uglier.  Her face doesn’t even resemble the original.  Cindy’s dress is not dark blue.  To top it off, the designer gave her a sock bun.  Staaaaaahp.

mul

9. Mulan

What the hell is going on with that hair and hairpiece?

10. Pocahontas

Oh poor Pocahontas.  Her mother’s necklace is destroyed.  Her skin is lightened and she has feather earrings.  Her dress has beads and feathers.  Why did they take out the little Native culture that Pocahontas had?
