Yesterday, I told you I had a little secret about Diana.  That is Diana to the far left in the picture above.  I bet not everyone knows that Diana is the mother of Cinderella and helped create this beautiful dress and some of Prince Charming’s formal attire.
Above Brianna Gould poses with Prince Charming Michael (he's a real charmer too!).  Cinderella and Prince Charming had just come from Comic-Con the first gaming and comic book convention held in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  As reported in the Grand Rapids Press and on Wood TV, “Hundreds of people stood in line for hours to get into the event; many of them dressed as their favorite super hero, super villain or pop culture character.”   Don’t these two make a "charming" couple?
 This is a close-up of Brianna.  I understand that beneath that blond wig is a bundle of bright red hair!  Check out the sparkle on her cheeks.
 Diana told me that she and Brianna found an old wedding dress at a resale store, took it apart, died some of the lace, and added other embellishments to make this beautiful dress.
 Cinderella even wore her glass slippers!  Well, maybe not exactly like the ones in the story book, but these shoes are covered with crystals.  Brianna is a model, stylist, makeup artist, crafter and professional Princess.  Her company is Cinnamon Girl Artistry.  Brianna and Michael often attend birthday parties and other events dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming.  They have other costumes too.  If you’d like to book them for your event (or for your Grandchild’s party) you can contact them at 616-644-7300.
