Look what I woke up to this morning! I was surprised when our doorbell rang around 7am on a Saturday but wow — the surprise package that greeted me was worth it!
It was a box that had Disney characters on it, headlined by the Frozen people — Kristof, Elsa, Anna, and Olaf.
Opening the box revealed almost a dozen Disney princesses standing on vanilla cupcakes. They looked so amazing I almost didn’t want to take them out and eat them.
I’ve always loved the Disney princesses. As little girls, my sister, cousin, and I would watch Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty repeatedly — on Betamax and on a film reel projector our grandmother used to have. I believe they were the first three Disney princesses. At the time I had no idea so many more princesses would come to being.
|Mulan, Halloween 2008|
Among the newer princesses (by newer I mean 90s onwards, because the first ones like Snow White came to be in 1937, Cinderella in 1950, and Sleeping Beauty in 1959), I really like Mulan. I think it’s partly because like us, she is of Chinese descent and her story is something we studied in the Chinese schools we attended. Everything in Mulan is so relatable for me. Incidentally, my daughter’s first Halloween costume ever was Mulan. I ordered it online for US$35 from The Disney Store.
|Jasmine, Halloween 2010|
Her other Halloween costume is Princess Jasmine, it’s a custom made creation that we borrowed from my cousin. It’s very elaborate! Both costumes have won many awards and prizes. I found it kind of dressing up my daughter as a princess. Had cosplay come into vogue earlier on I might have gotten into it. Too bad it became popular when I was already too old for it, lol!
Anyhow, the lovely Disney Princess cupcakes are just a preview of what SUN Cellular has in store this holiday season.
