Princess Odette had a great time at the Disco Night at the Aquarium event with the Mascot Miracles Foundation! The Foundation serves children and their families with life threatening illnesses and severe special needs. They invited all of the families to The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium for a night of disco dancing and fun!
Odette loved her disco outfit! She added swan feathers to her hair and her disco dress, green gogo boots to match the details on her original dress, and green heart shaped glasses to match her iconic gold swan locket.
a Tiara like she wore to her wedding completed the look.
Odette and the mascots danced with the kids and handed out Swan Princess Sunglasses and temporary tattoos to add to their swanderful groovy looks

This year at The Swan Princess we have been working hard to move all of our inventory into a brand new warehouse! Preparations for this have included organizing all of our art cels and pencil sketches for easier transport and storage. As we have been sorting through the incredible animation museum that is our warehouse, we have found some really incredible and unique pieces of Swan Princess history that were just too swanderful to not share with our amazing fans! Therefore, we would like to proudly present our new series:
Awesome Things We Found in the Warehouse Today!
Do you remember this scene from the original Swan Princess film? Bromley and Prince Derek are playing chess while talking to Lord Rogers about Derek's infamous "What else is there?" blunder. We love how much planning and detail went into every single scene in the film, including the chess game itself!
This is a character design sheet for each of the chess pieces on the board. The game has been mapped out as you can see below with not only where each piece will sit but where they will move. This bird's eye view makes us wonder if this game could be played through to see who would have won? If Bromley didn't cheat of course!
You can purchase these one-of-a-kind swan princess art pieces, or another pencil sketch or art cel by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
This April we are celebrating the birthday of the villain we love to hate, Rothbart! This makes Rothbart's zodiac sign Aries and his birthstone a diamond.
Aries are a very strong personality. They are loud, brave, passionate, and strong. They are warm and likeable with a big personality but get bored easily so they are constantly finding new ways to entertain themselves.
They love competition and even more than that they love to WIN competition. This makes them very driven to get exactly what they want out of life.
Aries thrives off attention and thrill-seeking adventures. They have a big presence and love to make an entrance.
Though they are courageous they can also be reckless. Aries are very honest and somewhat tactless, they always say what they're thinking.
The diamond symbolizes strength and has been worn by many powerful people in history, both good and bad, to bring strength and invincibility.
As winter begins to turn into spring here at Swan Lake we have found ourselves reaching more and more often for our favorite Swan Princess scrunchies!
These are handmade with our swan princess fabrics and also come in hair bows.
These 100% cotton scrunchies features Swan Princess inspired prints and/or logo and characters, and come in five adorable prints.
May you please add Whizzer in the live-action remake of The Swan Princess?
Great question! We are still searching for funding opportunities for a live action Swan Princess film. As such, the plot and script have not yet been written. It will be interesting to see if Whizzer makes an appearance as we get further along in planning stages.
My quest to find out more about my mother has been more successful the more I invest myself in Bridget and Chamberlain's wedding. Since we were considering Swan Lake Castle as the venue for the wedding, I went there to personally look things over. I had always wondered whose castle it had been before it fell to ruin for Rothbart to take over. With a little love and care, it could become a beautiful place to live again. As I was taking a detailed tour, I found a hidden room behind an old tapestry. It was small, but there were some things stashed inside. There was a small dresser with a diary in one of the drawers. I was surprised to find it was signed by my mother?? Could this have been hers? Was she here at some point as well? I’m still in a little bit of shock about it. I haven’t had the courage to read it yet. I wish my father was here. I have so many questions. I suppose I just need to be brave to look into why she was here at this terrible place. … Well, it wasn’t always terrible, maybe when she was here it was still nice. I suppose, the mystery continues…
