I’ve written many a paper and hated on many a Disney aspect–Disney is racist, misogynist, and holy fuck you guys, I love the shit out of some Disney.
I’m deeply ashamed of my love for them, but I, like many others, was taken on that Princess train from a very young age. I was Belle, Jasmine, and Pocahontas for three separate Halloweens, and will admit to seeing Tangled and Brave in theaters, as an adult, with my husband. I also went to DisneyWorld last year with my 5-year-old nieces, and it was neck-and-neck as to who was more excited to be there.
So when I ran across The Party Princess, I was both wary and excited, as I am about most princess endeavors. Written by an artist-turned-party-princess from a sort of, “well, this is happening in my life,” perspective, I can’t get enough. It’s engaging and interesting and funny and I love it.
