tortured efforts to get male characters into clothes that vaguely resemble the Disney princess versions of fairy tale costumes


I'm assuming you are referring to Snow White. I thought his outfit was one of the best bits in the book: how often do you get to see Disney Princess dresses re-interpreted as male stripper costumes? Also, dudes in bustiers, opera gloves and hot pants = hot. Very Happy

Although I must say I don't get the point of those greaves / winged shoe things Cinderella has on. He looks like a reject from some over-designed otome game.

I don't know, I was a fan of Not-So-Little Red Riding Hood, myself. Laughing

You're right, though - Cinderella's Glass Greaves were pretty special - and I actually thought this was an over-designed otome game adaptation at first. Smile

Me too! But then the author talks about coming up with the character designs with her editor, so I guess it's all original...

@Trilaan

It really is almost in the "so bad it's good" category, so if you're at all interested, do check it out.

As I was writing the review, I realized that I was some strange combination of the absolute best and absolute worst person to be reviewing this title, what with me studying fairy tales and all. Laughing
