Artist Draws Disney Princesses on Their Wedding Day

Disney Princess Art

Princess Ariel

Russian artist Oksana Pashchenko has become Instagram famous for her creative reimagining of Disney princesses. Previously, she portrayed the animated starlets, each pregnant with their first child; and now, she is depicting another important day in their lives. This new fan art series shows the princesses accompanied by their parents on their wedding days.

Pashchenko illustrates these family portraits in the style of a photograph. Each heroine poses with her mother and father before an imaginary camera—smiles and happiness abound. Although many of these leading ladies have lost one or both of their parents, Pashchenko renders a slightly transparent image of the deceased as though they are there in spirit. Princess Ariel, for instance, stands in front of an outdoor wedding venue with King Triton on her right and the late Queen Athena on her left. Similarly, a blissful Cinderella is accompanied by both of her late parents.

10th CD Draws Two Democratic Women in Race for Open Seat | Washington News

By RACHEL LA CORTE, Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The next representative of Washington’s 10th congressional district will be a Democratic woman, with voters deciding between two candidates who would each represent a first for the state if elected.

Former Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland would be the first Black member of the state’s congressional delegation, and the first Korean American woman elected to Congress in the country. State Rep. Beth Doglio, who identifies as bisexual, would be the first LGTBQ member of the Washington delegation.

Strickland and Doglio emerged from the state’s top-two primary in August, which drew 19 candidates after Democratic U.S. Rep. Denny Heck announced late last year that he would retire at the end of his current two-year term. Heck, who is now running for lieutenant governor, was the first person elected to the 10th congressional district in 2012 and has served four terms.
