For Marlee elsa-stole-a-tardis
Maldonia is a land of heat and humidity, bogs and marshes, but its people are proud of their kingdom. Palm trees are a regular fixture of the land, and alligators, mosquitos, and tiny little lizards can be found around each and every corner. The Maldonian coat of arms is a white crescent moon on a scarlet field, and their words are “Closer Every Day.”
As a young man, Prince Naveen the Puckish was disinherited by his parents, King Shankar the Wise and Queen Mina of Agrabah, and sent to the Tenth Kingdom to “find himself.” Naveen and his manservant crossed paths with a witch doctor and the prince was temporarily turned into a frog until he was saved by a headstrong and hard-working waitress named Tiana, daughter of James and Eudora. After marrying, Tiana and Naveen spent some time fulfilling Tiana’s dream of owning her own restaurant. Although Naveen was content to remain in the Tenth Kingdom and allow his younger brother to inherit the throne, Prince Chandran was still a minor when Maldonia found itself without a ruler, and Tiana insisted they leave the Tenth Kingdom behind and return to Maldonia to reign. Maldonia was the most reluctant kingdom in the establishment of Auradon and sided with Fairedge on the topic of magic. It was the Maldonian influence that lead to criminals outside of the Auradon borders being brought to live on the Isle of the Lost, including such high-profile villains from the Tenth Kingdom as Dr. Francis Facilier and Cruella De Vil. The Maldonians stand with the people of Fairedge as the most resistant to the idea of bringing the inhabitants of the island back into the culture of Auradon, but the people are not as stubborn and a bit more open-minded, and so Prince Chandran was sent to Rosencourt in order to hear out the arguments King Beau and the ambassadors from the Isle have to present.
Prince Chandran was a lively child not unlike his older brother and can still remember visiting the Tenth Kingdom when Naveen and Tiana were married. But Chandran also learned from his brother’s mistakes and where Naveen was lazy and wreckless, Chandran was much more respectful and obedient and never found himself cut off like Naveen was. Chandran found a kindred spirit in his sister-in-law; a hard-working and loyal young man, he too can be stubborn and develop tunnel vision when he knows what he wants. Although he is not sure how he stands on the topic of the Isle of the Lost, Chandran was more than happy to attend King Beau’s summit at the promise of reuniting with Princess Viola of Corona, who he met once a few years ago and who he’s thought of meeting again ever since.
Day Five: Favorite Personality Trait - She loved. She was denying romantic love from the very start, but she still had love in her and all around her. She loved her parents and she loved her friends. She loved what she did, which made her pursue that dream of owning a restaurant with everything she had. With all that love came support – she gave support and she received it. Naveen was not only a romantic partner, but he, too, supported her. Eudora and Mama Odie both were telling her that, yes, she can get her dream while it’s okay to receive love and support; she finally realized that by talking about James and what he had during her encounter with Dr. Facilier.
“Yes, you wish and you dream with all your little heart. But you remember, Tiana, that old star can only take you part of the way. You got to help him with some hard work of your own. And then… Yeah, you can do anything you set you mind to. Just promise your Daddy one thing? That you’ll never, ever lose sign what is really important. Okay?”
This is quite early, but it fits well around the timing of Princess and the Frog’s 5th Anniversary! I had a small Princess and The Frog cosplay group at my last convention (see below), but I want to give this under-appreciated film a lot more love!I want to make a huge Princess and The Frog cosplay group with as many characters from the film as I can for a summer UK con!

Examples for characters: Dr Facilier, Louis, Big Daddy, Mama Odie, Eudora, James, Lawrence, even an out-there cosplay like Facilier’s shadows or young Tiana Thanks, please reblog to pass on the message!
