1889


It's almost her pink gown!

Looking at the hair style, though, got me thinking, "I didn't really see that in Cinderella, except in MAYBE the Step-Mother. Maybe hair styles would be an easier way to narrow down this time frame!"

Step-sisters have distinct ringlets


The sisters have distinct ringlets that either flow freely or down the front of their chest, depending on length.

1880s seems to have ringlets either up, or down the back. They have bangs, which matches both the stepsisters and cinderella.

1880s fashion plate


This website just shows fancy hair-dos, with the hair down the back or up on the head, for all eras.  But I KNOW I've seen Victorian ringlets like on the step-sisters! And this website shows TONS of ringlets, but they don't give the decades, let alone the year! Looking at the dresses, though, it seems like 1860s (photography was invented around 1826, so that's not much help). Also, the step sisters seem childish, and their ringlets might be good indicators of that. (Looking at 1870's children's clothing, I see lots of ringlets. By the 1880s, the style is more for brushed out hair)

What are all the other fashionable ladies at the ball wearing? I'm seeing full-skirts and bustles.



By 1892 there are fuller skirts, but they're more a-lined. Not Cinderella-shaped at all (let alone the gowns of the other ladies)!

1892


In 1889, you have fuller skirts (many fashion plate for 1889 can be found at Bloshka 1889 Fashion Plate):

You know what, considering all of this, I'm going to just go and place Cinderella in the mid-to-late 1880s and call it good. Step-Mother is ahead of fashion, being vain. Her daughters are behind the times. I think this fits as well as anything and will allow me to move on with life and make a Cinderella dress!

Notes on style: They like draped fabric, and they drape it lots of ways. The neckline is the same as Cinderella's neckline. The bows are 4 "petaled" rather than your normal 2 "petaled" bow. Flowers were IN! Flowers in the hair, flowers embroidered, painted and appliqued onto the gown. Hair style is remarkably like Cinderella's, with the updo, bangs and hair embellishments, though 4-sided bows and flowers were common, rather than plain headbands.

It's amazingly hard to find these images. I'm searching through museum collections at this point:

1870
Rural France 1871

Finally! A good working class, COLOR image from 1889:

Ahahaha! Van Goh did peasant studies between 1881-89. YES!

Finally! Here's Cinderella, 1886-1889, Belgium. You can see all my research in the past three posts, so I'm just going to post the pictures!

I'd done over 10 hours of research for this, and I figured I might as well just go all the way and draw all the outfits from the movie. Plus, I just wanted to apply all the knowledge I'd learned!

According to my son, I "cheated" because I colored the images in photoshop rather than with my prismacolor pencils. But I'm kind of tired of burning through my pencils, and I'd already spend so much time on this, I figured I just quickly lay down the colors and move on!

I used the rural French images, because it matched the movie and it's plausible. And there's so few working class images to be found!

I went with the little cap sleeves and bustle for this. There were a lot of similar silver/blue gowns to draw from.

Flowers were IN during this time period. Royalty were decking themselves out with them, so Cinderella gets them, too.

I'm quite impressed that I was able to find dresses from the period with the diagonal, overlapping neckline. So I used them!

I must have been really bored or maybe by accident that I clicked on this topic, Disney princesses, historical or otherwise not exactly a top interest of mine. I sort of glanced at it and read a few lines before intending to click away but ended up reading the whole thing, even watched one of the videos. The way you presented this Disney princesses, where they came from and what they wore is actually interesting. Who knew? You did I reckon.

The massive amount of research you put into this, your artwork, just amazing.
