As my dream of starting a princess party business came closer to becoming a reality, I made a list of what was most important to me and one of those was staying as true to the character as possible. I spent numerous hours researching the best wigs and costumes; they needed to be high-quality and represent not only the animated character herself, but also be theme park accurate.
I couldn't believe there were so many choices for gowns! Each character wears more than one outfit in each movie and there are many interpretations of each dress. Ariel is best known in her mermaid form, but is most 'princessy' in her full gown seen at the parks. Rapunzel has extremely long hair so wearing it in a long braid is the most practical way to move around at an event - and I found a wig that represents how she wears it in her movie.
Merida is Scottish and has the accent to match! I've been an Irish dancer for over 20 years, trained by two sisters who were born and raised in Ireland. Hearing them speak, I have learned to imitate the accent pretty easily. Just a few slight tweaks from Irish to Scottish and I'm set!
My dedication to these details, I believe, are what makes my company different. I take my craft very seriously and I strive to provide families with the highest level of character accuracy, down to eye color and even wedding rings.
So if you're ready to 'party like a princess', just let me know and I'll be happy to begin preparing the magic for your special day!
