To celebrate Buwan ng Wika this August, artist Edward Neibert III took it to his Facebook page (where he uploads and shares his artworks) his interpretations of Disney Princesses wearing the different designs and kinds of our National Costume.
While some princesses donned the likes of our Baro’t Saya and the Terno, Neibert also visualized the princesses in costumes of our ethnic groups, such as the Ifugao’s and the T’Boli’s. Additionally, the Barong and the Katipunero uniform were also evident.
“I’ve been a fan of Disney since I was a little kid, as I’m sure a lot of us are,” Neibert shared with WHEN IN MANILA. “Particularly fan ako ng Disney princesses, kasi (because) for me they embody the meaning of “breaking the norms”, lalo na si Mulan (most especially Mulan).”
