I keep Lesen heaps of opinion-based Artikel about the Disney Princesses, so I decided that I'll do my own series of them, one for each princess.
This Artikel is about how I view Snow White - my opinion on her appearance, clothing and accessories, voice (both Singen and speaking), relationship with her prince, and friendships. Appearance:
Her face is a little weirdly shaped because of her low cheek bones. I have always disliked her hair style, and I think that's because I associate princesses with long hair, at least shoulder length. Her eyes are a nice colour and shape, and really suit her. Her nose may appear cute, but it is so small it's almost non-existant in some images. Her lips are a nice shape and colour, but to be the classic Snow White, I think they need to be a deeper red. Most Bilder depict her with rosa oder orange lips, which doesn't suit her, but in the movie her lips are red. What is on with that? Similar to all princesses, she has a nice figure, but she may be a little on the too skinny side. Clothing and Accessories:
Firstly, I have to say that I hate the white halsband, kragen on her main dress. It's big, distracting, doesn't suit the dress properly, and it's the wrong colour to even attempt to suit the dress. If that halsband, kragen didn't exist, the dress would look a lot nicer. The dress is nice, but it needs long sleeves. To me, it looks almost incomplete without those sleeves extended to her wrists. The colour scheme is nice, as blue, red and yellow go together quite well, but how she keeps that yellow rock perfectly clean while living in the woods, I have no idea! Her bow is a nice accessory, as it adds a little something to a boring hair style. As for her shoes, not so much. They're the wrong colour to go nicely with her dress, and the bow is actually a little ugly. If the bow was ditched, and the shoes maybe the same blue as the mieder of her dress, it would look a lot nicer.
I don't really want to spend much time on Snow White's rags, as she hardly wears them. They look nice, for rags, but I hate the wooden clogs that she wears with them. The blue bow is nice, but it doesn't really suit the colours of the rags. Voice:
To be completely honest, I have always disliked Snow White's voice. Her speaking voice sounds too high-pitched for my liking. Her Singen voice has a little too much vibrato for my liking (for those who don't know, vibrato is the wobbling sound while staying on the same note), and it sometimes sounds like it's forced, not natural, as it should be. As a soprano myself, I like hearing princesses with high Singen voices, but to me, Snow White's high voice isn't very pure and clear. It may just be the recording equipment from that time, but that doesn't make a difference. Relationship with her pirnce:
When Snow White first meets her prince, she's in her rags. He felll in Liebe with her voice, and wasn't disgusted when he found out what she was dressed in. As they were saying goodbye, Snow White was being a bit of a flirt, which is surprising for her age and the attitudes when this movie was made. At the end of the movie, they end up together just because Ferdinand woke her up with a kiss. Yes, it was true love's kiss, but in modern times, that isn't really enough to base Liebe on. Friendships:
Snow White is always kind to the animals, both at the schloss and in the woods. They help her clean and cook, and since she tells them off in a nice way, they don't mind and they do what she says. Snow White is good Friends with all of the dwarves as well, but I think that her favourite is Grumpy. He proves that he actually likes her (as a friend) when he leads the other dwarves back to their house, with the help of the animals. All princesses need their friends/sidekicks, and Snow White has plenty.
To be completely honest, Snow White has always been my least favourite princess, and her voice is the main cause for it. Sorry to any Snow White Fans out there!
