Some of the most loved Barbie Princess costumes come from the Barbie version of the age-old “Prince and the Pauper” story. Unbeknownst to one another, two identical-looking girls, one a blonde princess name Anneliese and the other a brunette pauper named Erkia grow up in the same mountain kingdom. Of course, the princess is tired of her royal duties and the pauper is tired of her grueling work, and the two make a switch to live happily ever after. You’ll feel castle-in-the-clouds happy wearing dress up clothes based on either of these two young ladies.
Most Anneliese Barbie Princess costumes are designed as a majestic, pretty pink ball gown with golden accents and accented with a sparkling tiara, of course!

Typically in pale blue, these Barbie Princess costumes also feature a mob-cap style headpiece typical of the lower-status girls of the era.
Another pretty and sure to please choice in Barbie Princess costumes are based on Barbie Genevieve from the animated movie “Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses”.
