Though four young women of color — Pocahontas, Moana, Tiana and Mulan — have been added to the official Disney Princess line since Jasmine’s introduction in 1992, Disney has yet to create a plus-size princess that fans of the same size can relate and look up to. To fill that void, artist Crystal Walter reimagined what Disney Princesses would look like if they were bigger, rounder, and chubbier. With an aim to make fans realize that their worth as a person has nothing to do with their body size, Walter made sure that her illustrations are filled with themes of body positivity and self-love. Check out some of Walters’ inspiring works in the slideshow below, which also includes similar illustrations created by artist Elena Provolovich for the U.K.-based cosmetic beauty clinic Dr Aesthetica.

Though plumper in size, this version of Alice has the same curious eyes as the original ― a reminder that your body shape and weight shouldn’t stop you from asking, wondering, and embarking on a new  adventure to discover what’s out there.
