New York-based artist Jonquel Norwood just made Disney princesses way more relatable with modern clothes and body-positive, confident attitudes. *Clap emojis*!

Norwood created curvy versions of Jasmine, Snow White, Tiana, and more Disney characters as a part of her “Magic Has No Size” series.

“I was body shamed most of my life and … like most, I believed I had to slim down in order to truly be a member of society,” she shared with Bustle.

Norwood hopes her artwork will help dismantle that mindset. “[I] created [these designs] to celebrate the 67 percent of women who are unrepresented in today’s media,” she said in a statement. “All of the princesses are wearing clothing inspired by actual plus size brands, in an effort to draw attention to those who have dedicated their brands to dressing curvy women.” Jasmine and Tiana in particular are bringing it!

Crop tops, off-the-shoulder dresses, capes, and high heels from labels like Lane Bryant and Society+ outfit the ladies so they look fly AF.

“Snow White ... is sporting a Lane Bryant bomber jacket and Society+ inspired cage top,” Norwood explained. “Ariel’s dress ... was directly inspired by a Courtney Noelle dress.”
