Andromeda the Disney Princess

Andromeda the Disney Princess

Andromeda, the mythical princess of Kush (Nubia) who married the Greek demigod Perseus, as she might look if drawn by a Disney animator. For her hairstyle I set out to channel Meg from Hercules, since I figured they might inhabit the same universe. Unfortunately, if you pay attention to Phil the satyr’s dialogue when he first meets Hercules, he lists Perseus as one of his past disappointments before meeting Achilles and Herc.

Red hair dye appears to have been a distinctive fashion statement in ancient Nubia (though Egyptians like Ramses II sometimes took it up as well), which is why my Andromeda has red highlights on her dreads.
