Princess and The Pant

Artist Claire Hummel has a fantastic set of illustrations of your favorite Disney princesses–with a twist.  She has taken all of your favorite Disney princesses and given them historically accurate costumes.

Surprisingly, some of these accurate costumes are not far off from Disney’s own.

What I want to know is, why have we not created a female heroin since women started wearing pants?  Hummel’s drawing point out that the Princess is outdated–none of them exist in our own modern era.  None of them are young enough to wear pants.  So why does the toy isle for girls look like this?
