the hispanic heroine

Alright so you followed me because of the Chancla post and your love for the latin culture right?

Then you need to do me a favor and follow a little project My friends and i are working on.

To keep it short and simple, after seeing Disney announce yet another movie where the main princess was white we decided it was time to take matters into our own ands and we created a little project. 

Its called The Hispanic Heroine and it deals with Reina and finding her place in the world. 

I want you guys to give the blog a look, read through it and follow if you support the idea.

Some News

The project will no longer be called “Rock'N'Rosa” and the name of our Hispanic heroine will not be “Rosa”. 

We’ve run into some complications concerning credit and no longer possess the rights to that title or name. 

Other than that, everything remains the same:

  • The main character is a female Hispanic (country of origin not decided)
  • She is a musician 
  • She is 14
  • She will be turning 15 in the story
  • our designs for her remain the same
  • everything we’ve written remains the same

We do ask that if you made fanart/cosplay, that you go back and remove the “Rock'N'Rosa” tag and replace it with “The Hispanic Heroine”. 

We also ask that you guys no longer send us ideas or we will run into more problems like this in the future. 

But we encourage the fanart/cosplay and enthusiasm because that will keep us motivated after dealing with some disheartening matters. 

The project is still here and it is still happening. 

Any further questions can be directed towards this blog preferably or the three of us on the team.

I know you've been asked this a lot but I'm v confused as everyone is saying different things.. Is Mare Hispanic? If so I will be very happy as I'm Hispanic too and have never read a book where the heroin is Hispanic :)

She is of Caucasian and Hispanic descent (I would say Mexican and Puerto Rican to be closest, but those don’t exist in RQ anymore).
