Costumes – Bringing the Magic of Disney to Life: A blog about the history of costumes and how princesses are portrayed in different cultures.
The world of Disney magic comes alive for many children every day. Millions of Disney toys are purchased every year and their movies have become a part of our culture. The costumes that represent their characters have also become a big part of the magic that makes us smile.
Disney has been a leader in entertainment since it’s beginning. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and others are known by people all around the world. The first full length movie they produced was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. Since then they have produced classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocahontas. Through these movies over a dozen princesses have been brought to life on screen.

Costumes – Bringing the Magic of Disney to Life
A blog about the history of costumes and how princesses are portrayed in different cultures.
Princess Jasmine, daughter of the Sultan of Agrabah, is a wonderful example of how Disney has incorporated multicultural ideas into their movies. She is a Middle Eastern woman who was first introduced in Aladdin and then had a much larger role in Aladdin: The Return of Jafar. Her role is expanded even further in the Disney TV show, Aladdin: The Series. These movies showcase her as an intelligent, strong-willed, beautiful young woman with a heart of gold.
The Princess Jasmine costume comes in four different variations from the movie and TV show. The first version is based on what she wore when she first met Aladdin. This costume consists of a purple one-piece dress that has an attached white shirt with billowy sleeves and a purple sash which ties around the waist. It also comes with gold jeweled accents which are great for adding that little bit of sparkle needed to complete this ensemble. It really looks like it just came out of Agrabah!
The second variation includes a long flowing blue gown that consists of two pieces; a blue top with billow
Costumes are one of the most essential parts of bringing the magic of Disney to life. Every year when the Disney parks release their new princess dress, the most important decision is how to draw inspiration from the source material to create a dress that will make a little girl feel like a real princess.
The Princess Jasmine costume is one of the most famous princess costumes of all time. Over the years, many different variations have been made and it seems that every Halloween there’s at least one little girl who wants to be Jasmine for Halloween.
So let’s take a look at how Princess Jasmine costumes have changed over time and what makes them so popular:
In this blog post, we’ll be explaining the history of different princess costumes. The first princess costume we’ll cover is the beloved Princess Jasmine from Aladdin.
Princess Jasmine is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures’ 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992). Jasmine is from the Middle-Eastern kingdom of Agrabah and is one of Disney’s Princesses of Color. The character is based on a princess who appears in the One Thousand and One Nights folk tales.
The earliest known concept of Jasmine was in 1985, when Disney animator Mark Henn was asked to create a new princess for a sequel to Aladdin. He did not draw inspiration from any existing Middle-Eastern cultures, instead using her design to express his own cultural heritage.
Her hair was originally going to be black like that of other ethnic characters such as Mulan and Tiana, but it was later changed due to her being set in Agrabah and its fictional location of Arabia. Her appearance was influenced by the beauty that Henn saw around him every day in Florida, including the exotic flowers and birds. As an animator, Henn is most proud of how expressive he made Jasmine’s eyes, which were inspired by
The classic Princess Jasmine costume is a dress. It drapes over the shoulder and has a sheer capelet. The bodice is made of brocade, with gold trimming. The skirt is billowy, and it has a slit in it. There are also pants that go beneath the skirt. The colors used on the dress are light blue, aqua, gold and navy blue.
On this website you can purchase an authentic Princess Jasmine costume for $100 or make your own from items you have at home.
You can make your own Princess Jasmine costume for about $20:
*A blue tank top or t-shirt
*A pair of pants
*A long scarf in any color you want

To turn a tank top or t-shirt into a Princess Jasmine costume, simply put the shirt on and tie the scarf around your waist so that it hangs down like a skirt. Wrap the headband around your forehead and slide the bangles onto your arm to complete the look!

One of the most popular costume themes for young girls is the Disney Princess. The Disney Princess franchise encompasses many different princesses from different films, but there are a few most popular characters including Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel and Jasmine.
Each princess is unique in their own way and is loved for their individual characters. Of course, each girl also has her favorite princess.
One of the most beloved princesses is Jasmine. First appearing in 1992’s Aladdin, Jasmine was originally voiced by Linda Larkin. However, in more recent movies and television appearances she has been voiced by actress, singer and songwriter Lea Salonga.
Jasmine is considered a “modern” princess because she was one of the first to be born into royalty as opposed to marrying into it as so many other princesses have done before her. In fact, Jasmine is so modern that she wants to marry for love – something unheard of in her day.
The character of Jasmine has changed over the years – starting off as a spoiled little girl who doesn’t know how to do anything for herself to becoming a responsible young woman who falls in love with a poor street rat named Aladdin.
Other than Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Jasmine is the only other
