The Swan Princess Holiday Photo Contest
We’ve been doing something a little different this year for our 12 days of Christmas countdown: A Holiday Photo Contest! Submissions were accepted until December 14th of photos including you, your family, your friends, or your pets featuring any official Swan Princess Product!
We are now announcing winners, one for each of the 12 days of Christmas.
Anna Maddalena Capasso is the winner for the 7th day of Christmas! She saw swan wings when she looked at these two beautiful trees and made her product photo swanderful by using them as a background.
The first place winner will receive a signed production art cel and will be announced on Christmas Day.
For those of you that love our Swan Princess calendars, we ARE making one 2023.
We are a little late in getting it published on the site as we are taking some extra time to include art from the second and third Swan Princess film.
Watch out for the 2023 calendar to be added to the store next week.
In the meantime, if you are still interested in owning the 2021 or 2022 calendar, as a collection of Swan Princess art, they can be purchased here.
Question: What was the inspiration for Lord Roger's character and mannerisms?
Ornament Day is coming fast, and with all the joy and cheer from families around, it reminds me of the first Ornament Day we spent with Alise. Because of the Rothbart incident the previous year, Rogers and Uberta insisted on much higher security for the ceremony. Alise was nervous and the guards posted at every door didn't help. To celebrate her adoption, we asked her to design an ornament that we could hang on our personal tree, and while she seemed excited about it she realized she wasn’t sure what to make. It was then she decided to face her fears and asked the guards to help her with design ideas. They happily obliged, talking about Christmases spent with their own families. She began to open up a bit more to them as well. She went around to the rest of the castle to ask all the guards about their favorite Christmases, getting to know them as people rather than scary tall figures lurking in the doorways. Alise learned that while guards are meant to protect, they’re people too. In the end, she made two ornaments: one for us, and a toy soldier ornament to show the guards and thank them for all their hard work. We still have it on our tree every year.
