Princesses of Power #7: Tiana

The task I set for myself: redesign the Disney princesses as superheroes, drawing inspiration from super-fashions of around the same time their animated movies came out.

TIANA: She's the princess AND the frog with her shapeshifting powers. Tiana's lilypad-themed gown is here reimagined as the functional athletic-wear of the super-people of today - or a few months ago anyway (drawing primary influence from Bryan Hitch). Ribbed rubber vents? Check. Thick visible piping? Check. Sensible footwear for the girl on the go? Check. Ready for anything? Check and check.

And that brings us up to the present, and an end to the Princesses of Power series... at least for now. There's at least one more princess to come, and at least one that I skipped that I kind of wanted to take a crack at, so maybe sometime I'll pop out a couple more. or maybe not. Did you have a favorite? Did you notice the two covers that had hidden Mickey's?
