Japanese Designer Makes Disney Princess Wedding Gowns

December 29th, 2018

Hardcore Disney fans who have wedding bells in their future can rejoice. A Japan-based fashion designer has produced a line of wedding gowns based on the styles of Disney princesses.

Now, brides can walk down the aisle dressed like their favorite princess in their own happily ever after.

Japanese wedding dress producer Kuraudia Co. offered the 14 dresses for the first time back in 2017. You can even order a matching wedding tuxedo for the groom.

The gowns range from a decadent yellow reminiscent of Belle of Beauty and the Beast to a sleek, flower-bedecked dress that’s plays homage to Rapunzel, a Disney princess of the 2010s.

The gowns aren’t white but don’t worry about that. More and more brides are opting to wear vibrant colors down the aisle.

So, you can wear a red dress that’s modeled after Snow White or a blue one like Cinderella.

Of course, Kuraudia Co. confirmed that the gowns will not be sold in the United States, so you might have to prepare for some international travel if you want to get your hands on one of these gorgeous Disney creations. In Japan, they run for about $3,600 apiece.

But if you do have your heart set on wearing white as a bride, Kuraudia Co. has now expanded its Disney line into white gowns as well. They’re still an homage to Disney princesses like Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty, but they have more traditional wedding looks. And the results are stunning.

Of course, you’ll still have to fly to Japan.

Disney looks are everywhere. Fans of the Disney princess franchise have added the royal looks to everything from makeup to hair to lingerie.

A website entitled “The Disney Fashionista” puts all these looks together in one place. It’s an impressive array. There are fashion tips, hair, makeup, and even nails — all filled with ways to honor your favorite Disney movie or character.

Disney fans on YouTube have made a huge following of princess makeup tutorials.

And they’re not just for costume parties. These hugely talented makeup artists can transform themselves into Disney characters like Mulan and Jasmine with skilled blending and careful color choices.

The looks are beautiful, and the skill it takes to make them is obviously huge.

Just look at YouTube makeup artist Kandee Johnson, who knows how to transform herself into Queen Elsa of “Frozen” fame.

Johnson puts an enormous amount of thought into the ways she makes herself look like the Snow Queen.

“So, for this look — because she’s a cartoon — we’re gonna do very heavy on the concealer,” says Johnson. “We want it to look very flat and kinda white all over the face. We’re going to create the illusion of a wider, more cartoon-looking eye kinda like hers.”

Johnson goes as far as shaping her facial features to look more like Elsa’s, including elongating her eyes and flattening her upper lip to make her mouth appear thin and wide.

It’s astounding to watch Johnson transform from her real look — brown eyes, medium-toned skin, and hair that’s streaked with green — to a real-life Disney queen, complete with blue eyes, white-blonde hair, and pale Scandinavian coloring.

Of course, some YouTubers prefer a more Disney-inspired look they can wear out and about on a daily basis.

Another YouTube makeup artist, Jackie Wyers, modeled her Cinderella-inspired look after the 2015 live-action Disney movie. She describes the makeup as “barely-there” and says it all starts with fresh, flawless skin.

Her fans love the natural look that’s inspired by a princess — but still able to wear it on the street.

“Aw, beautiful looks!” wrote YouTube user Kristýna Hrdličková. “You could also make a look-book video with outfits inspired by Cinderella, but wearable, of course. That would be amazing!”

There’s no doubt the Disney obsession can travel far beyond childhood.

The internet is full of Disney tributes, from fashion to musical covers and more. Maybe it has something to do with the flux of great Disney movies that came out in the 2010s.

The most recent Disney princess, Moana, was introduced in 2016, and people are wild for her. She’s already inspired hundreds of musical covers on YouTube, as well as makeup and clothing. She was even at the center of a Halloween costume controversy as people wondered whether it was culturally appropriate for Caucasian children to dress up as the Polynesian princess. We’ll have to see what the consensus is when a Moana wedding dress comes on the market.
