So some of you may know this and some of you may not but I really love Disney movies, and who doesn't love the Princesses, so I thought why not do a inspiration post for them. Here we go:

Almost every little girl has grown up with one or more Disney princesses as their idol, with Elsa from Frozen the most obvious recent example. From Snow White to Cinderella, Disney princesses have served as role models for children for generations. Many come from fairy tales that were around long before Disney even existed, but the movies that star these beautiful characters are what made them so famous today.

Words to get you thinking:

noun: princess; plural noun: princesses
the daughter of a monarch.
a close female relative of monarch, especially a son's daughter.
the wife or widow of a prince.
the female ruler of a small state, actually, nominally, or originally subject to a king or emperor.
a spoiled or arrogant young woman.
Synonyms for princess:
noun female ruler
queen, sovereign

After getting inspired by the words above let's look at the Princesses who have appeared in movies to date, in the order they graced our screens for more inspiration:
(Information About Princesses Taken from (Not my words on descriptions of Princesses): Here and Here)

"How I wish that I had a daughter that had skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony."
Snow White is the original Disney Princess, appearing in the franchise’s first ever full-length feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs nearly 80 years ago in 1937.
She was based on the character in the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Schneewittchen. The movies sees the evil Queen twice try and kill Snow White after being told by her magic mirror that the princess is more beautiful than she is.
She finally manages to send her into an ‘eternal sleep’ with a Poisoned Apple, but Snow White is woken with true-love’s kiss from the Prince.

"Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a tiny kingdom; peaceful, prosperous, and rich in romance and tradition. Here in a stately chateau, there lived a widowed gentleman, and his little daughter, Cinderella."
Cinderella, of the famous glass slipper, appeared in the 1950 Disney film of the same name.
Her character is based on Charles Perrault’s fairy tale Cendrillon, and the movie helped turn around the fortunes of Disney, which was struggling at the time.
The story is of course one of the most famous fairy tales of all time, featuring her evil stepsisters, fairy Godmother, glass slipper and, of course, the Prince.

"In a faraway land, long ago, there lived a King and his fair Queen. Many years they had longed for a child, and finally their wish was granted. A daughter was born, and they called her Aurora. Yes, they named her after the dawn, for she filled their lives with sunshine."
Aurora is the princess from 1959’s Sleeping Beauty, with the story based on both Little Briar Rose by The Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault’s La Belle au bois Dormant.
She is cursed by the evil witch Maleficent, and falls into an eternal sleep after pricking her finger on a spinning wheel’s spindle. Like in Snow White, there is only one thing that can wake her – true love’s kiss.
Who can forget the famous scenes where the three good fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather argue over the color of Aurora’s dress.

"Poor child. Poor, sweet child. She has a very serious problem. If only there was something we could do. But there is something."
Darling it’s better, Down where it’s wetter, Take it from me! Anyone who grew up as a child in the 1980s will have spent countless hours singing songs from The Little Mermaid, the first film to feature Princess Ariel.
Based on a fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen, the original 1989 film follows her story as she turns from a mermaid to a human in a bid to meet Prince Eric. Ariel also appeared in The Little Mermaid II and III.

"Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?"
Ah, Belle. The ‘beauty’ in Beauty and the Beast and its sequels, the original 1991 movie tells the story of a prince turned into a beast after being put under a curse.
He can only escape its grip if he can persuade Belle to love him. The story is based on the traditional French fairy tale La Belle et la Bête by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, which was published in 1740.

"Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man's life; a young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed: a diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits... with a dark purpose."
I can show you the world! Jasmine is the princess-turned-Sultana from Aladdin, 1992’s highest-grossing film, as well as its sequels.
With countless catchy tunes, the original movie is based on the story of Aladdin and his magic lamp from One Thousand and One Nights.
She was the first Disney princess not to be mentioned in some capacity in the title of the film in which she made her debut.

"My daughter speaks with the wisdom beyond her years. We've all come here with anger in our hearts, but she comes with courage and understanding. From this day forward, if there is to be more killing, it will not start with me."
Pocahontas was the main character in the film and sequel of the same name. Unlike the princesses before her, she was not based on a fairy tale but a real person.
The daughter of Chief Powhatan, in the 1995 movie she stops a battle between British settlers and her own Native American tribe.

"Look at me... I will never pass for a perfect bride. Or a perfect daughter. Can it be, I'm not meant to play this part? Now I see, that if I were truly to be myself, I would break my family's heart. Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me? Why is my reflection someone I don't know? Somehow I cannot hide who I am, though I've tried. When will my reflection show who I am inside?"
After Pocahontas, Mulan is the second Disney princess not to be based on a fairy tale. But in her case, rather than being based on a real person, she is based on the Chinese legend of Fa Mulan.
She stars in the 1998 movie of the same name, along with its sequel. The original follows her journey as she pretends to be a man so she can replace her father’s place as a warrior during a Hun invasion.

"We are not thriving. True, our people live, but our culture is dying. We are like a stone the ocean beats against. With each passing year a little more of us is worn away."
Kidagakash "Kida" Nedakh is the deuteragonist of Disney's 2001 animated feature film Atlantis: The Lost Empire and its 2003 direct-to-video sequel.
She is the daughter of Kashekim Nedakh, King of Atlantis, and later becomes Queen and the assumed wife of Milo.
Despite being born a princess, Kida is not marketed as a Disney Princess, possibly due to her film's poor box office results and mixed critical reception. (but I am including her)

"Just at that moment, the ugly little frog looked up with his sad, round eyes and pleaded, 'Oh, please, dear princess! Only a kiss from you can break this terrible spell that was inflicted on me by a wicked witch!'"
Tiana is “the Princess” in the 2009 movie The Princess and the Frog. The film is based on The Frog Prince fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
In it Tiana kisses a frog prince and after turning into a green-legged amphibian herself, has to find a way to become a human again.

"Flower gleam and glow. Let your powers shine. Make the clock reverse. Bring back what once was mine. Heal what has been hurt. Change the fates' design. Save what has been lost. Bring back what once was mine, What once was mine..."
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! Another character that has been the subject of children’s bed-time stories for generations, Rapunzel is the main character in Tangled.
The daughter of the King and Queen of Corona, she has magical hair and with ends up going on an amazing adventure with the thief Flynn Rider.
The story is based the fairy tale of the same name by the Brothers Grimm.

"There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it."
Merida is the focus of Disney/Pixar’s 2012 hit Brave and, along with Ariel, is the only other Disney princess to have red hair.
Unlike a few of the others on this list, Merida is an actual princess as she’s the daughter of King Fergus of DunBroch.
Set in medieval Scotland, the film follows the defiant Merida as she refuses to marry and accidentally turns her mother into a bear.

"That's no blizzard. That's my sister."
Anna stars with her older sister Elsa, below, in 2013’s Frozen. Her full name is Princess Anna of Arendelle and is based, very loosely, on Gerda from Hans Chrsitian Andersen’s Danish fairytale The Snow Queen.
Anyone with a young daughter will be more than familiar with her story thanks to Frozen’s huge success.

"The cold never bothered me anyway."
Elsa is the princess who gave us the song Let It Go, and in the film accidentally leaves her kingdom in perpetual winter with her magic powers.
She refuses to return but Anna, above, then goes on a mission to find her. Following her coronation in the movie, she is no longer a princess but a queen.

"What's a demigod gotta do?"
Moana Waialiki will be Disney's first Polynesian princess.
Moana is the newest Disney princess, so recent that the film in which she stars hasn’t been released yet.
She is the star of the upcoming movie that bears her name and is set to be released in November 2016.

Thanks Hon!

Yeah it would seem LJ gets a kick out of messing with the image sizes, I already fixed it once before I posted this, and they messed up again. If they mess up this time I don't know what to do.

Those fonts are gorgeous aren't they!!! :D
