Disney princesses have been an inspiration to many children for their beauty and charm. But according to critics, the iconic characters like Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, or Ariel have not been representing every woman out there.
The lack of plus-size bodies and skin colors was precisely what inspired social media influencer Natasha Polis and her friends to launch the #PlusSizePrincessProject. “We take up more space than most, yet our larger bodies are clearly lacking representation in media. So here’s our response this Halloween: 21 influencers dressing up in our own style as beloved female Disney characters,” Natasha wrote to her 77.4k followers on Instagram and shared the photos of the plus-size princesses.
Both inclusive and diverse, the pictures prove that queens and princesses come in all styles, backgrounds, shapes, forms, colors, and sizes and that whoever had a dream to become one as a child has no reason to think they shouldn’t.
