Claire Hummel was born and raised in the quiet hamlet of Los Angeles, California. She is currently working as an artist for Microsoft Game Studios Publishing.

Claire gravitates naturally towards anything having to do with her childhood haunts of Disneyland, Myst, national parks, museums, and Hawai’i, thus ensuring a lifetime interest in nostalgic escapism. She also has an extensive, practical knowledge of period costuming and snakes, in case you’re into that sort of thing.

Most of the world seems familiar with the famous Disney princesses, from Snow White to Pocahontas their likenesses are burned into our memory, fan or not. What makes them so iconic? Many would argue it was their lavish and flowing costumes, based on historical fashion. But just how correct are those period fashionable dresses? Claire Hummel, an illustrator with a passion for historically accurate costuming recently reworked many of the famous ladies, giving them new garb fitting a stylish member of their periods society. Many of the original Disney costumes weren’t far off, while a few are vastly different.

    Love the idea. Shame she didn’t base it on typical, normal BODIES as well. Lost opportunity here I think.

    This is a collection of art I’ve come across many times now, on various social media sites. I just think that they’re really very cool, and extremely beautiful as well.

  7. I just wish they would have an picture of the actual Disney artwork alongside the reworked costume. From what I remember, (it has been a long time since I had children watching Disney animation) most of these look quite similar to the Disney originals.
