Just stepping in to give a quick DISCLAIMER - most of this art is five years old at this point and embarrassingly out-of-date!  I would love to redo these, armed with additional knowledge and wisdom, but my day job does't leave a ton of free time for personal projects.  Please take these with a grain of salt, and share accordingl; check out literally any of my more recent art if you're looking for more thoughtful historical fashion.  Thanks much!

Watch the process video here:


I adore Tangled for many reasons, but historical accuracy isn't one of them. It's actually the first Disney film that feels entirely set in its own fantasy world, with no real ties to any particular time period or setting- unless you count that ever-forgiving time period of "Ren Faire."

Since this is the last one in the series (so far as official princesses go), I thought I'd treat myself and just have fun with it. I drew up concepts for both the 16th century (the slashed sleeves) and 18th (Keane's initial inspiration), but in the interest of choosing a time period I hadn't touched yet I ended up going with the late Regency. There are a ton of gowns circa 1820 that have those inimitably princessy sleeves, and those palace guards aren't fooling anyone.

-Claire, who made a video for this but still needs to edit that nonsense together

At this point, I've become used to historical inaccuracies in Disney.

You really did Punzie justice here. :D

You said the one condition for cosplaying your designs was to show you, so here is my cosplay of your wonderful design!…

Thank you for creating such a gorgeous interpretation, I had such a fun time creating it! :)

You certainly did your homework with the princesses! The gowns are absolutely breathtaking, and you are an incredible artist! I hope to see more in the future!

Her hair and dress is very pretty. Also, the light haze that the lantern gives off is really eye-catching.
