Princess Tiana by paigehwarren Princess Tiana by paigehwarren
I took the dress design from a 1920s fashion catalog. I originally wanted to put Princess Tiana (Princess and the Frog, 2009) in an Erte gown but none of them really seemed to fit the image I had in mind. Even though I love that Tiana's dress in all the princess products is blue (and I always wished they put Ariel in green instead of that awful pink thing), I pictured this dress in that sage-y green color. I might do some more princesses in different gowns later, this was fun.

Princess and the Frog (c) Disney.

Beautiful drawing. The dress is beautiful as well. For some reason I see it as a Maldonian princess gown.

Nouveau jewelry is gorgeous so I wanted to incorporate it somehow in there (although mine is pretty Deco as well).

Sorry, I was trying to say that the pic of my great-grandmother is of when she was young, in the 20's, I didn't mean to imply that your pic makes Tiana look old. ^^; It's a wonderful pic, paying tribute to an amazing movie, and I hope you do lots more! ;)
