By day, Melissa Trierweiler from Kansas City is an actor, director, and teaching artist who also works in ticket sales. But by night, the 25-year-old produces plays for her Disney figurines.

Everything started during her freshman year in college. "I was a big Tumblr user at the time (I still use it regularly) and I had a respectable following of just under 2,000," Melissa told Bored Panda.

The student thought it'd be funny to share a few scenarios in a unique way, so she took pictures of the figurines set up in poses like they were talking to each other, captioned them using Snapchat, and uploaded them to her personal Tumblr in an episodic format.

"I made up the title The Official Princess Club and listed the episode numbers, though I didn't intend on doing many. I posted about 8 episodes as they came to me, just for fun."

But people seemed to enjoy them. "Things started to blow up on New Year's Eve 2014. I remember hoping that I would get to 2,014 followers on my Tumblr by the end of the night, thinking that would be a fun thing for the new year, but a few of my episodes had started catching fire [on the platform] just that day so by midnight I had 4,000 followers, my count doubling in a matter of hours. By the time I woke up the next day, I had roughly 10,000 followers, over a hundred messages, and my episodes were blowing up."

From there, Melissa created a separate blog where she still posts episodes to this day.

For those who have known Melissa, The Official Princess Club probably didn't come as a surprise. When she was a kid, she was a huge Disney fan. "My older sister and I would watch the VHS tapes of Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Pocahontas in particular over and over again," she said. "However, when I hit middle school, I wrongly adopted a 'Disney is for babies' mentality and took a break from it for several years."

But just for a while. Melissa rediscovered her love for it in high school. "I think the resurgence of my love for Disney went hand in hand with my love for musical theatre which I discovered my passion for around ninth grade. When I was eighteen, I actually got to perform as Ariel in a community theatre production of The Little Mermaid." In fact, Ariel has always been, and still is, her favorite Disney character, and that experience set off her Disney obsession in full swing.

"I returned to Disney World in Orlando 2018 and have even dressed up as Rapunzel, Elsa, and Anna (among other characters) for Disney themed birthday parties and events. I think Disney will always continue to be a big part of my life and I love what the stories represent and appreciate how it continues to grow and change with the times."

The creator of The Official Princess Club tries to explore the comedy found within the clashing personalities between Disney's most famous heroines and their significant others. She imagines how they would handle co-existing as a group when it comes to various events, including holidays and support groups.

"This series compares and contrasts how the characters and stories are alike and different while putting a sassy spin on how these characters might interact with each other," Trierweiler explained. "Would Snow White be as sweet as she's depicted in her film, or is she secretly the queen bee of the castle? What are the princes really like, particularly those who barely ever spoke in their movies? What conflicts arise when the old-fashioned characters meet the new?"

Throughout the years, many people have stolen the episodes and reposted on a variety of places such as Facebook meme pages, Pinterest, and Imgur without any credit or link to the source. So if you do like what The Official Princess Club is doing, I urge you to honor the time and effort Melissa puts into the project: if you stumble upon one of the episodes somewhere online, comment and let everyone know the interesting creative person that is behind it!

You mourned the death of a firefly and your best friend is an alligator that plays jazz trumpet. Don't think you have room to talk, Tiana.

Wow has it really been that many years since Sleeping Beauty? I looked it up and it was 61 years ago... wow. And Snow White has been 83 years. I mean I always knew, but its kinda crazy to think these enduring and iconic cartoons are that old... that people that worked on Snow White are all gone...fun fact-- the model for Snow White, Marge Champion, only died this year (2020). She was 101.
