CHARLOTTE LaBouff would like to become part of the magic!
- Who am I? Just a conscience!
- Hey, howdy, hey! The name's your admin, and I wished upon a star from IMDB. The other characters I play here include Basilpanchitogadgetbowlerhatguy. Charlotte and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
- I'm WISHING for
- Character name:
Birthplace: New Orleans
Movie: The Princess and the Frog
Title: The Wannabe Princess
Why: Why'd you pick this character?
I was looking for a human female character, and Charlotte has so much personality that I thought I could really do something with her. Plus a southern accent will be fun to write.
- Who's the fairest of them all?
Character appearance (try to get at least 2 or 3 sentences for each section)
Hair description: Her hair is a very light, almost platinum blonde (natural, of course!), cut in a short bob, the very latest style. Perky little curls frame her face, though she teases it up into a huge beehive for more formal occasions.
Facial description/mood expressions: Lottie has a wide face with very full cheeks and round blue eyes. She wears lots of make-up at all times to look her best and tries to keep her peaches-and-cream complexion out of the sun as much as possible. Her expressions change at the drop of a hat, from vacantly ecstatic to tragic and back again in 2 seconds flat. Charlotte has also practiced her sultry come-hither look a great deal with variable results.
Clothing style: "Style" is the key word. Lottie lives for fashion, which, in her era, means flapper skirt with cloche, tea-dresses with picture hats, or, when appropriate, a ballgown and tiara (only the finest designers, naturally). Charlotte definitely knows how to dress and always makes sure she is properly accessorized, with jewelry and matching shoes, purse, etc.
Body build: Although she doesn't sport the waif-like body of the average Disney princess, Charlotte is far from unattractive. With a little more meat on her bones, she is still quite fetching.
Any unique traits (optional) :

Original character analysis. (Everything must be in your own words! Please be thorough.)
Charlotte knows what a Southern Belle should be, and tries very hard to appear dainty and helpless, although she is really a pretty robust girl. She presents an aura of poise and sophistication whenever possible, but it is all a facade which generally slips away after a few minutes, to be replaced by her normal frenzy of emotions, emotions she can't hide very well at all.
When she's sad, she's tragic, certain that life is over. When things are going her way, Charlotte becomes a giggling child who can barely sit still. Whatever she does, she does it in a big way.
Although every inch a spoiled little rich girl, Charlotte truly has a kind heart. She is rarely mean on purpose, only so completely self-centered that she doesn't always notice the plight of those around her. Once she understands the distress of another, Lottie is eager to help in some way, often with cash, which she spends like water, since she has little understanding of what it takes other people to earn money for her.
Charlotte Emmeline LaBouff was the only child of Eli and Lorelei LaBouff. From the day she was born into that privileged family, little Lottie received every advantage an heiress could have: the finest clothes, the grandest home, the most expensive toys...
The only thing she never had was the attention of her parents. Her father was far too busy to concern himself with the day-to-day raising of a child, and her indolent mother preferred to lie on the divan fanning herself most of the day and attend society parties at night.
The actual raising of the baby was left to servants and tutors, so that, although never truly neglected, Charlotte was never really trained or disciplined in any way. When she threw a tantrum, the servants didn't dare to correct her, as that only brought Mrs. LaBouff's wrath down on one's head and might very well lead to a dismissal.
Eli did love his daughter, however; the one thing he took time for was to read her a bedtime story each night. Fairy tales were the child's favorites, and she drifted off to sleep night after night dreaming of handsome princes coming to carry her away.
When the girl's mother died, Eli grew closer to his only child, showering her with more presents than she could count. But it never seemed to be enough; Lottie always wanted more of everything.
So, Charlotte grew into a nice, but spoiled young woman. She hated school and learned next to nothing from her tutors, preferring to dream about the day when she would marry a prince to become the princess of her storybook fantasies. She had many friends among New Orleans' privileged set, plus one poor little girl, Tiana, the only friend who truly loved her for herself.
When the Prince of Maldonia visited New Orleans, Charlotte saw her chance to make her dream come true: she would marry Prince Naveen and finally become a real live princess!
All seemed to be going according to plan. The prince accepted the invitaion to her party, seemed to be falling under her spell, and quickly proposed to the ecstatic heiress. What she didn't realize was that this was only Naveen's valet, transformed by Dr. Facilier's magic into a prince-lookalike.
The fact that he only wanted to marry her for money wouldn't have fazed Charlotte in the least. But finding that her husband wasn't a true prince would've devastated the girl. Fortuantely for her, the real Naveen, though changed into a frog, interfered with the plot, delaying the wedding (and the murder of Lottie's father!)
When Charlotte learned the facts, her true nature showed through at last. She gave up her chance to become a princess so her dearest friend Tiana could find happiness with the man she loved, agreeing to bestow a magical kiss to turn Naveen back into a human.
So, she was thirty seconds too late. All's well that ends well; Tiana herself broke the spell with a kiss, Tia and Naveen lived happily ever after, and Charlotte, although happy for her friend, was still left with unfulfilled dreams.
To become a true princess

What makes this character unique: She appears at first to be of the wicked-stepsister type, but Charlotte possesses a surprisingly kind heart. She's not what you'd expect of a poor little rich girl.
