We are not Disney princesses or characters, we are storybook and folktale characters and Princesses. Folk tales and stories about Princesses have been around for hundreds of years. The colors of our costumes may have been inspired by Disney but they are not Disney dresses or costumes.
Below you will find a list of characters and who wrote their story or where the folktale originated.

Little Red Riding Hood (1881) by Carl Larsson
|Name||Little Red Riding Hood|
|Also known as||Little Red Ridinghood|
"Little Red Riding Hood", or "Little Red Ridinghood", also known as "Little Red Cap" or simply "Red Riding Hood", is a European fairy tale about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf. Its origins can be traced back to the 10th century by several European folk tales, including one from Italy called The False Grandmother (Italian: La finta nonna), later written among others by Italo Calvino in the Italian Folktales collection; the best known versions were written by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. The story has been changed considerably in various retellings and subjected to numerous modern adaptations and readings. It is number 333 in the Aarne-Thompson classification system for folktales. Variations of the story have developed, incorporating various cultural beliefs and regional dialects into the story. An example of this is "Kawoni's Journey Across the Mountain: A Cherokee Little Red Riding Hood", which introduces Cherokee myths and language into the traditional story. Another such example is "Petite Rouge Riding Hood", which approaches the story from a Cajun perspective.
