I'm wondering if anyone can share any pics of the current park version of Cinderella dress for girls, outdoors in natural lighting? I've seen a few different pics that look totally different. Some are like a nice, rich sky blue (almost turquoise) and some look like a very light, icy blue. Some show the silvery pattern pretty visibly (to the point where I'd call the dress too shiny), and some I've seen, you barely see the silvery pattern at all.

I'd also love to see the current versions of Rapunzel, Tiana, and Belle (in natural lighting, too, if possible).

Or if you've got a really good indoor photo that's a close match to the actual coloring, that'll do.

Thanks!

should I bring our own tiara or buy one there? is it better to have a comb style or the classic crown style that encircles part of the head with a headband? Are you able to buy the rhinestone type there or just the costume ones (we are looking at the hair/nails/makeup pkg). Can I Taylor the hairstyle some for th diva or Sofia hairdo? does Sofia pkg include nails? Thanks

Yes, Merida is one of the options. Sorry I don't have any pics, but it is very pretty.

We are headed to BBB for an 8:00 appt on our first full day in August. We aren't doing CRT until dinner. I figured my DD ( age 6 ) would want to be dressed up all day. My concern is the heat in August. I plan on bringing our own dress (she just got the new Belle & has the Rapunzel wedding dress too). Any suggestions ?
Also the whole shoe issue. I am pretty sure the princess shoes are not the most comfortable for walking. I was going to have her just wear them for pics and dinner. Any suggestions for alternatives?

A tiara comes with most packages...WDW online should have a description...

Style is really up to you guys...my daughter chose the bun and lived it. I also have seen many girls with the colored attachments and loved it...

By rhinestone, do you mean like the ones at Arribas Bros.? I'm not sure about that...

The hairstyles can not be changed. The Fairy Godmothers in Training are not hairdressers must stylists. The styles are created and the FGIT are taught those specific styles. The only thing I was told by a CM on the phone was the bun did not have to be do severe. My daughter is autistic and I wasn't sure how she would handled the severity sensory wise (can't speak to if it would be honored, she didn't need it loosened).

The Sophia style is only offered at the Downtown Disney location. I believe nails are included in all packages.

Hope this helps!

You may want to also consider not having her wear the dress all day...just to dinner.

We did BBB in December and it was comfortable. We have previously gone to WDW in August. We didn't do BBB that time but there were many girls walking around. Those dresses looked so hot! I did skirts and tanks to look like the princess for when my daughter did meets. Nights get cooler so it may not be that bad to read the dress at night.

My daughter wanted to do the pirate league's mermaid deluxe this trip. It's not a costume per say but a cute skirt and shirt combo to dress up in. Hopefully won't be that bad in August!

Oh and the shoes...I got glitter ballet flats from Old Navy. She had worn them to school so they were broken in. Although they aren't sneakers, she was fine walking the parks in them when she dressed up.

Anyone do the Sofia package yet?

I would love to see pics!

Have a BBB appointment scheduled for my daughter in Sept at MK but thinking of switching to DTD instead so she can get the Sofia package.

Anyone know how well the Sofia style holds up? It looks looser than the buns, which I've heard stay for days.

THANKS!

The tiara only comes with the bun hairstyle, not the others but you can purchase one.
There are 3 level of packages for each style and nails are included with the top 2. Not sure if they are with the sophia one as I haven't read anything about it as it doesn't interest us.

And the FGIT are licensed braiders, so they have to stick to certain styles and limited on what tools they can use.

Does anyone have the Princess Tiana costume from Disney parks?
I'm wondering if there is enough gold (or any gold in the dress at all) for glitter gold ballet flats to match? OR gold sandals? or would gold just look dumb?
