Historically Accurate Disney Princess | Belle by afternoonkid
Historically Accurate Disney Princess | Belle
I'm very interested in the history of fashion and I've wanted to make these kind drawings for a while. The idea is this: what would Disney princesses look like, if they wore historically accurate clothing? 

Unlike with Ariel, it was very easy to find a suitable time period and style for Belle. There were actually two choices: either the 1700's fashion or the crinolines of the 1850's and the 1860's. I finally chose the 1750's style: the most known version of the tale "Beauty and the Beast" was after all written (by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont) and published in 1756.

Made with pencils, marker pens and watercolor pencils + edited with GIMP.
I got tagged by :iconjuha91:


1. You must post this rules.

8. You MUST make up journal entry!

10 facts 'bout me

1. I'm a name nerd, which means that I like to analyze names, form combinations of first and middle names and get to know about the meanings and the backgrounds of names.
2. My Myers-Briggs personality type is INFJ. It stands for introvert, intuitive, feeling and judging.
3. I've sent a postcard to a Japanese cat.
4. I've danced with an Indian waiter in a restaurant of a luxury cruiser in the Caribbean. Probably my most absurd experience ever.
5. I adore Alphonse Mucha's artwork.
6. One of my favorite Finnish phrases is köyliöläisen yötyöläisen hääyöaie. It means "a wedding night intension of a night-time worker from Köyliö".
7. If I had a cat, I would name her Persephone. Her nickname would be Persie.
8. The next time I go to Stockholm, Sweden, I will visit Livrustkammaren (= The Royal Armory Museum in the Royal Palace).
9. I hate when somebody or something makes me feel stupid.
10. Last year I read the whole Bible, even though I consider myself as an atheistic agnostic. I did it to enlighten myself: after all, the Bible and the Christianity itself have had a great impact in the western history.

The 10 questions

1. If you could travel to Rome or Paris, which one would you choose?
Hmm... They're both very traditional big cities full of history, so I find them both quite tempting. Today my choice would be Paris.

2. What is the longest prose book you've read so far?
Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, though Anna Karenina was the one that felt the longest.

3. What historical figure you'd like to interview, and on which subject?
For a historian like me this is an impossible question to answer! However, I've lately studied a novel written by a Finnish countess Marie Linder, whom I'd like to meet face to face if it was possible. We could discuss about pretty much anything; I'd just like to see if she really was the wild rebel like I've thought. 

4. Do you know or have you studied any foreign language (besides Swedish, if you're a Finn)?
Besides Swedish, I've studied English, Spanish, French, Russian, German and a little bit Italian by myself. This doesn't mean that I'm very good at these languages, though...

5. Do you think the harsh criticism of the Star Wars prequel trilogy is justified or not?
Yes, because I dislike the prequels myself. Although, I have to admit that there are much shittier films in the world than this trilogy.

6. What is the last movie you went to see in theaters?
A Most Violent Year, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. I liked it.

7. Have you already went to swimming this spring?
No, but there's a chance that I will go on this weekend.

8. Do you prefer going to sauna by yourself or with friends?
I like to go to sauna alone. It's more relaxing that way.

9. If you had a son/daughter, what would you name them?
Because I'm a name nerd, I've considered this very carefully. But because there are so many beautiful names, my possible children's names change quite often. Anyways, if I had a baby girl and baby boy today, I would name them Anja Sylvia and Tuomas Eerik.

10. Do you enjoy going to museums?

Sorry, but I don't make up any questions or tag new people. Shame on me.
