Mascot Miracles Foundation Events Aplenty
It has been a busy month for Princess Odette!
Did you know Odette could be a pro wrestler? She didn’t either! But she sure gave it her best try! The Mascot Miracles Foundation Mascot Mania wrestling event had children with life threatening illnesses teamed up with a pro wrestler to compete against their favorite mascots and princess.
The match for Princess Odette (dressed as Odile) was against the Killer Ballerina Sophia C. It was so fun to see the confidence soar in the kids! And of course, the match ended with giggles and a hug.
The Walking For Gold Fashion Show with the Millie's Princess Foundation shows designs from indie designers to raise money for a child with cancer. Princess Odette was honored to walk the show in her new dress, designed by Chamberlain in Swan Princess a Fairytale is Born, along with some magical friends.
Spooky season is upon us and there was no better way to celebrate than at the annual Mascot Miracles Foundation Trunk-or-Treat parade! Odette dressed as Odile for a costume and sported light up swan wings to bring a touch of forbidden arts magic to the evening event. Kids with life threatening illnesses and their families loved the plush toys, coloring books, and DVDs that filled their treat bags!
The Mascot Miracles Foundation Mascot Bowl football game is a staple of the autumn and Odette had a great time cheering for both teams! Professional mascots from all over the USA played an exhibition game to raise funds for a Sub for Santa program for underprivileged children.
Odette loved all of the hugs and dancing and amazing children she got to spend time with this month! Cheering up the children of the Mascot Miracles Foundation is a swanderful honor she will always be grateful for!
Awesome Things We Found in the Warehouse Today!
The media is constantly bombarding people, especially women, with unrealistic beauty standards and expects us to measure up. This is so incredibly harmful to individuals and society as a whole. With that in mind we loved finding these pencil sketches in the warehouse.
These three images are part of a sequence in the ballroom where Odette drops down into a curtsey. The best part of these sketches, however, is that you can see how her waist moves. While she is still slim and fit, her proportions are far more realistic than her contemporaries and as she curtseys you can see the folds of her dress and stomach as she bends.
So many other animation companies would remove these things for the "perfect" smooth, pencil thin look but real bodies just don't move like that. We LOVE that Odette shows you can be a real person, with a real body that folds, bends, and stretches, while still being an undeniably gorgeous princess!!!
This month we are celebrating the birthday of our good friend Number Nine also known as Jasper! This makes his zodiac sign the Libra and his birthstone rose quartz.
Libra is represented by the symbol of the scales reflecting Librans need for balance in all things.
Librans high value of balance means they are always working to create harmony, peace, and justice in the world.
This does not mean they are always working for the greater good, however. It does mean that they dislike conflict and will develop and use any skills needed to keep the peace, keep everyone happy, and ensure justice as according to them.
These skills often include their charm, intelligence, frankness, and powers of persuasion.
Librans often find that the key to finding this balance they crave is in fostering positive relationships with those closest to them.
Librans are very indecisive as they consider many different opinions and many different perspectives before making their final choice. They consider all consequences as they would rather not make a decision than disturb the delicate balance of peace.
When conflict eventually does arise Librans are one of the the most talented at resolving it. They rely on their charm and wit to diffuse the situation and prefer to just fix the problem themselves.
Rose quartz is a crystal that symbolizes unconditional love. Love for oneself and love for others. Rose quartz could be worn to boost self confidence and encourage stability in relationships.
We think this all sounds just like Number Nine!
Is your birthday in October or do you just like the color pink?
Do you have your costume ready for Halloween? We are having a costume contest!
Send a picture of you dressed up as any Swan Princess character to Odette@SwanPrincessSeries.com and we will announce the winner on our social media and in the November 2023 Chamberg Daily News.
Need some help with your costume? This velvet and satin Odette dress is machine washable and comes in sizes XS-XXL!
Answer: Because Princess Odette has both a white and a blue version of the dress in her closet! As many royals around the globe, Odette requires an appropriate outfit for every occasion she finds herself in. While her beautiful flowing white dress is right at home in a ballroom, she needs a pants and boots outfit for adventuring, a costume for performing magic shows, and everything in between. We were inspired by the runway shows of fashion month to make you Odette's complete fashion show below! All of her animated outfits are included alongside many of the costumes in real life versions. We are sure Odette will continue to collect outfits for the many needs of the royal events she attends. What kind of outfit would you like to see? Let us know on social media @SwanPrincessOfficial or through email at Odette@SwanPrincessSeries.com
I have been reading my mother's diary in my down time and I have learned quite a few interesting things. Swan Lake used to be much more important of a place than I thought it was. While my mother traveled every summer, she, my father and Rothbart met up at Swan Lake to play as children. Apparently mother and father didn’t even know they had been betrothed to each other until they were adults, so they had been playing and falling in love with each other for years beforehand! It was so romantic! Though from reading it, I think Rothbart had a large crush on my mother as well. I have to wonder if that was why he focused so intently on me for his plot to take over the kingdom? Because I reminded him of my mother? I can only speculate at this point, but it’s so interesting to see how my life coincided with hers. She was even the one who brought flower seeds to keep the garden going and expanding, which is where I spent most of my time as a swan. So I suppose in a way, she was with me during my entrapment. I should make a note to go visit again, tend to the flowers to make sure her memory is still growing.
