I guess I should probably explain what the project is, I present to you: The Disney Princess Faery Project! I've always been a lover of Disney ever since I can remember, and like most Disney fans, the princess set draws me in. even when I was childless I loved them and watched them on a regular basis, the fact that my daughter now loves them is even better! An old Tafe friend of mine started a Dr Who project where he transformed himself into each Dr in a high fashion interpretation, that is what I want to do, I won't be directly dressing and copying the outfits exactly , but heavily using them as inspiration. I will be drawing inspiration not just from the original cartoons, but also from the tv show once upon a time and the recent live action movies (if that princess has been made into one). At once point I had the idea of using different models, but in the true sense of "work with what you have" (which is my motto at the moment) I will just be using me, it might actually be really interesting to see how much I can "transform myself" or if I'll just look like the same person in a different outfit, either way, we shall see.
The difficulties I will face during this challenge are hair, makeup and photography, as I have limited experience with all of these. I wish I had a friend with a good camera and a flare for photography (like I did back in my school days) or a model to use. I actually prefer to be behind the camera, but i will work with what I have, and I have myself.
One of the first princess I will be doing is Snow White, as she was the one I was working on way back when so I already have designs and the materials I could afford, I will be pulling pictures and designs from my old blog to show you, but will also be adding new elements since I am now doing it "up cycle style". I still haven't decided how far I'll go in terms of details and such, especially since I don't have to money for a proper photographer and I don't want this to be a "one outfit a year" deal taking 12+ years! But i may learn how to make wings just to add an extra "faery feel". I am also working on Aurora from sleeping beauty as I have a design in mind and the materials I need for it.

Until next time!
