When artist David Trumble saw the sexy makeover Disney had given “Brave” Princess Merida, he was as appalled as we were, and he decided to use his artistic skills to show his concern. “I wanted to analyze how unnecessary it is to collapse a heroine into one specific mold, to give them all the same… More »
If you want to dress up as a Disney character for Halloween, there are so many to choose from: Snow White, Cinderella, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, and a plethora of colorful villains are all popular choices.

When I heard “The Little Mermaid” was coming back to theaters, I immediately started sobbing with joy and planning the outfit I would wear to go see it (something subtle like a flared skirt with green sequins and a seashell bra).
