The thing Disney is missing

I am a huge Disney fan, quite possibly the biggest Disney fan. Yet I can't help thinking there is something the Disney family is missing.

No, I don't mean me...although I would argue that, too. Hint, hint.

I love the Disney princesses. I mean, just look at them.

Their stories are all so different, and yet I feel they are mostly the same. I don't know why.


There are some things I really wish Disney would include in a Disney Princess, and some attributes that I really wish they would include from some of the others. 



A tattooed Princess. 
From my research on Disney World jobs, I am fully aware of how opposed to tattoos the Disney company is. I watched my Disney World job dream float around the river bend and into a whole new world when I found out. But why? In a society that is mostly acceptive of tattoos and body art, why is Disney so old fashioned? I could understand with some of their jobs (characters etc.) but oh my goodness. I think they should have a tattooed princess. I mean, how awesome would that be? *queue all the negative comments about how a tattooed person degrades themselves, such as the comments I get on twitter*.

Another Princess who just doesn't give a damn.
I love Anna (Frozen) because she wakes up, hair a mess and drool down her face; yet the others wake up looking like they have had a catwalk make-up artist work on them during night, and have birds and animals make their beds.

A Princess whose waist isn't as small as my little finger.
Now queue all the comments about me being a fat pig, such as my "concepts of beauty" post! I want more Princesses like Merida (Brave) who isn't overly skinny and doesn't mind a diddy bit of mud. Yet it disappoints me that even when Disney makes a Princess who doesn't have a teeny waist, they edit her down for the promo photos. Please, Disney, stop with these teeny tiny waists that make me jealous. Give me a Princess who is rather partial to a McDonald's and loves munching on doughnuts.

More Maleficent.
Maleficent was a breath of fresh air in the Disney world, and it was an incredible film. I don't think I need to say much else, here. After all, a villain is just a victim whose story hasn't been told, right?

More Princesses who do more than talk to animals and search for a Prince.
Let's have more Mulan, more Tiana, more Merida, and more Belle. I don't know about you, but I don't wake up every day and have a conversation with the birds chirping outside my window unless I am telling them to shut up. I also happen to do the cleaning myself without the help of some deer, rabbits or turtles! I mean, Mulan saved China, Tiana has her own business, Merida climbs cliffs, and Belle reads books. Why can't we have more of that sort of thing?

Another Princess who doesn't only wear dresses.
Don't get me wrong, I am partial to a nice girly dress, but they are so not practical and I tend to favour leggings. Jasmine (Aladdin) had the right idea, and she still looked good. I get that they might have been traditional to the time period they were dressed for, but jeez! Let's see some more modern dressed Princesses!

I volunteer to play the next awesome Disney Princess, or at least help create her! So, Disney...call me!

What traits would you like a Disney Princess to have?

Would you like to see some changes to Disney?
