What occasion could this be for?
Well, now we know where the Disney Princesses shop and get all their custom multi-crinolined, ridiculous ball gowns. Did you notice that each Disney Princess has their own trademark colour? Pink being Sleeping Beauty, blue for Cinderella, yellow for Belle. You can buy little versions of all the Princess dresses for little girls. I have often wondered if there is a child-sized version of Pocahontas' costume, and if so, do Native Americans find it offensive? It is stereotypical, with the buckskin fringe, feathers and wampum. I would think that even Jasmine's "Arabian harem" look could be offensive to some people, and inappropriate for a little girl to wear. It's like little kids doing a tap-dance routine to Lady Marmalade, dressed like prostitutes.
