Saint Vincent Artist Reimagines Disney Princesses as Afro Caribbean

I think we’ve all been there. Looking at the popular Disney Princesses and wondering why they don’t look like us. Yes, we were finally given Tiana but would it be nice if we could see the other princesses as brown girls too?

Well that’s just what St. Vincent native Karissa C decided to do! She created her series titled “My Creole FairyTale” to show the the girls in the fairytales as African/Caribbean women.

Growing up I always imagined what it would be like if the girls in the Fairytales looked like me. So when I imagined them, they always had my favourite elements of MY Culture (which I am so proud of) too! Inspired by my love of Fairytales & African/Caribbean Culture!

Check out her series below!

About Vanessa


Hi! I'm Vanessa! I'm a 26 year old natural. Making the decision to go natural has been one of the greatest decisions in my life. It has boosted my self confidence and has given me a way to express myself through the hair God has blessed me with. I had my last relaxer in Dec of 2013 and big chopped Aug of 2014 and there's no turning back! I now share my journey with tutorials and tips that work for me through my youtube platform and my blog in hopes of helping other naturalistas in their journey to natural.

What does African nose look like?just a little explanation please.

Sandra Brooks

I’m black Caribbean and i don’t have a wide set nose. My sister, mother, grandmother, my father and his father do not have wide set nose either. Iman is from Africa and she have a straight small nose also. The problem with most people is that they think everyone from a certain race should all look and act the same.
