My love for Disney Princesses knows no bounds. Whether it is listening to Princess Jasmine or Bella’s stories or trying to copy the colour schemes of their outfits, I’ve done it all during my childhood. But I bet I’m not the only one obsessed with these characters. Just like me, there’s an artist who loves them a little too much.
Professional sketch artist Schaya Sri has come up with an extremely creative and interesting way to keep herself occupied amid the coronavirus pandemic. Inspired by Indian classical dance forms, she has recreated Disney characters by making them don beautiful traditional dance costumes. Can you guess which Princess is performing which form of dance? Check out the pictures!
Indian traditional dance costumes are known for being bright and attractive. These dresses are created to match the vibrant, dramatic and often loud movements of the dance form itself–whether it is Kathak from Uttar Pradesh or Bharatanatyam from Tamil Nadu. The artist, therefore, has used bright colours, golden borders and multiple drapes to create a real-life effect. Take a look and decide for yourself!
I never really imagined that the traditional Indian dance costumes could be put on these lovely fairies. Aren’t the results magical? Let us know which one you liked the best in the comments section.
