23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
The time in a young girl's life when she idolizes all things related to princesses.
Emily: Ah, I have a wonderful idea! Have you ever worn a tiara?If you ask a girl who's in preschool or kindergarten she'll probably know that Everything's Better with Princesses. She will have a fairy tale princess's attitude making her anywhere between a gracious but breakable cutie and a Tiny Tyrannical Girl who might feel entitled to a pony. She is or acts like she's seven years old at the most. Princesses Prefer Pink so that's probably her favorite color. She'll imagine herself as a pretty princess or prentend to be a princess bride. Her court will be consist of stuffed animals and dolls. She might want a Prince Charming by her side as long as she still gets to be her Daddy's Girl, looking up to him as if he's a king. If you tried to explain it to her she wouldn't understand why Girls Need Role Models. Contrast the other end of the scale where she's One of the Boys. Compare Real Men Wear Pink where there's a little princess in each manly man. Also compare the Disney Princess concept.
Rory: Well, when I was four...
Emily: You look like a princess.
