Twisted Princess: Esmeralda by jeftoon01 Twisted Princess: Esmeralda by jeftoon01
The long and absurd wait is over!!! I finally finished my latest princess, Esmeralda! I hope you guys like her! Her appearance is a little creepier than normal but whatever. She reminds me of Two-Face so it's all good to me hahaha. I've been planning and working on her since before my Rapunzel. I'm just glad I finally found the time to finish her.

Story: Frollo raids the Court of Miracles and captures Esmeralda, Quasimodo, and Phoebus. He declares that Esmeralda will be burned at the stake for being a "witch" while Phoebus is sentenced to death. Quasimodo is locked and chained up in one of the bell towers overseeing Esmeralda's execution. Frollo proceeds to light the wood around Esmeralda and the flames begin to circle her. Quasi manages to break free of his restraints in order to rescue Esmeralda. Unfortunately, he was unable to make it to her before the flames consumed half of her. He wrapped her in a cloak and retreated with her in his arms, back to the bell tower as the town square broke out in a riot. Phoebus attempted to break free from his captors in order to assist Quasi and Esmeralda but was killed in the process. Frollo in all his anger and rage grabs a small team of soldiers and infiltrates Notre Dame while up in the bell tower Quasi lays down Esmeralda who was badly burned from the fire. She showed no response to Quasi's attempts at waking her. He fully covered her with the cloak and began to cry. Frollo heard the sniffling of Quasi through the door and entered with a knife behind his back. He pretended to console Quasi but before Quasi could react, Frollo slit his throat. Quasi's lifeless body laid on top of Esmeralda. Frollo turned to leave the bell tower just as Emseralda raised behind him. He turned and looked into her eyes, one whitened completely by the fire and in a raspy voice she said "You'll pay!" Frollo was disgusted with Esmeralda's new appearance and lunged at her with his dagger. She grabbed his wrist and flipped him into the corner. He began to yell for the guards who stormed the bell tower and circled her. They all proceeded to attack her but they were no match for her cunning which was now fueled by revenge. All the soldiers fell before her as Frollo cringed and tried to back further into the corner. She turned her attention to him. She strolled to him slowly, and picked up a torch from one of the fallen soldiers. He looked her in the eyes, and all he could see was the hatred she had for him and her determination for revenge. He became paralyzed with fear. She raised the torch above her head and said, "You will burn! You will all burn!!!"...

And that's my story! I hope you guys like it :)

Mix Esmeralda and Hel... Wow, I wish that I'd thought of that. You dear, are a genius.
I love the backstory!
I agree with you on the two face thing.

What makes some of these Twisted Princesses pictures interesting is that some of the original stories that they came from were darker than the adaptations.
I like all of your twisted princesses so far. all of the ones I've seen paint them to be survivors or avengers of lost ones.
Creepy! Awesome design on this one. :)
