the little mermaid gif

even though my last edit got stolen (which is why this one features my url) i decided i wanted to make another

when i saw the reposted gif, with all those notes, i decided that i wanted to see what people had to say. and even though some of it was ignorant and hurtful and scarring, most of it was overwhelmingly positive. most of it came from people like me, starved for representation and so, so excited by the idea of something that they loved (disney or mermaids or both) having a character that looked like them, even if it wasnt real

there were also a lot of arguments about her race? she was supposed to be me, so she is multiracial, which leaves the door wide open. if you look and see you, you can see whatever you want

I think I am going to do all the 2D princesses… This is too much fun!! <3 It was actually hard to decide with colour-sheme to go with for her fin and bra, but I hope that this looks good! :o 

PS: She is giggling, so the shoulders are supposed to move like that. ;3

Wanna see more mermaids? —> Belle, Aurora & Tiana
