LOL, yeah... Basically I was debating between Belle and Pocahontas, and I decided to throw the question out to you guys to see what you all would say. If I am able to do this, it would have to be really quick (since I'm moving in a few weeks), and I'd have to use what books I have.

Ok, point taken then =P But next time don't give "Other" if you are sure you can't really make it :giggle:

I only am discounting Mulan and Jasmine... I'm up for others, like maybe Jane Porter. (Though I guess she's not really a princess!)

Well, not in inch :giggle: Sometimes I amuse myself with all that little-girlish stuff I know...

You can actually see Pocahontas in Jacoben court dress in The New World!

I love that movie!

Though for my own pic (if Pocahontas wins the poll) I'd draw her in something very Anne of Denmark-esque, with a really plunging neckline. The dress they put her in Pocahontas 2 was so...unfortunate.

I've only seen clips of Pocahontas 2, and yes, it was.

God, there are so many eras which have just never been costumed on film. It's so sad. :cry:

I know! I've never even seen a movie set during the 1730s that has been accurately costumed... and we're not even getting into the more obscure eras, like ancient Assyria. Pigs will fly before that makes it to film, which is kind of sad.

I know. I wish there were more studios like the American Film Company, except for different countries.

Have you seen any of their films? The new Civil war one directed by Robert Redford looks pretty cool.

That one ("The Conspirator") is the only one they've actually made so far, and it hasn't been released yet, but I think it looks cool too (although from what I've seen the female costumes are just slightly problematic). As I understand it they're planning on making films about John Brown's raid at Harper's Ferry and the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Probably won't offer much in the way of fabulous lady's dresses, but should be entertaining nevertheless!

Evan Rachel Wood's frocks do look fabulous, but the Civil War isn't really my period. How are they problematic? I'd love to know. :)

The Paul Revere one sounds cool... I hope they get the costuming on that right.

(Have you seen True Grit? The film itself was good, but the costuming was pretty meh. The women extras in the background looked like badly dressed Civil War reenactors, which could be pretty distracting at times!)

What an awesome idea! I would love to see Pocahontas in a Jacobean court dress.

A more historically accurate Princess Jasmine would be great too since her outfit is historically absurd.

I'd love to draw either Pokey or Belle, depending on who wins the poll!

As for Jasmine, I didn't include her because Aladdin is one of my least favorite Disney movies. And researching actual medieval Arab clothing would take a bit more time than I have at the moment... ;P

What?! Who doesn't like Aladdin?
I mean, okay, it fails as history, but it's so funny! The songs are so awesome! The characters have actual personalities! It... it just... what's not to love?
LOL sorry but I love that movie... it's fine if you don't though...

I am not a fan of the Disney Pocahontas movie, but I am a fan of the actual historical figure, so I am hoping she wins because it would be really cool to see you draw her!

Different strokes for different folks... for various reasons, it never appealed to me.

And... it looks like Belle is the winner! Go Belle!
