During Princess Week all the girls at in dance class came dress as little princesses, except Ainsley, who decided to come dressed as a hotdog instead.
Hotdog Princess Takes The Internet By Storm
With the first tweet Twitter began to buzz as more classmates and their parents, as well as the teacher uploaded photos of Ainsley in her unusual costume. All over Twitter people expressed their admiration for this daring fashion statement.
The original photos were posted by Sarah Nativi and her friend Grayson Lamontagne, who teach at Holly Springs School of Dance in North Carolina.
Pictures of Ainsley started being shared widely on Twitter last week after being picked up by popular comedy accounts, as well as by YouTube star Tyler Oakley.
People loved Ainsley’s strong and original fashion choice.
Nativi told BuzzFeed News the story behind the photos:
Well, the last few weeks of dance class we let the girls dress up and this week was Princess Week, so we were expecting all of the girls to come in their princess dresses.
When [Ainsley] got there everyone was so surprised but we loved it and thought it was great that she wanted to wear a hot dog costume. We all took pictures because we thought it was funny that she came to Princess Week as a hot dog. She added that Ainsley wore the costume because it was her favorite.
“She loves princesses, but she wanted to be original and wear a hot dog costume instead,” she said. “She wore a princess costume underneath it and said she was a princess on the inside!”
Enrollment enquiries: Months later, the most asked question of the day about our studio are… not schedules/philosophy, etc… but, “Aren’t you the home of the Hotdog Princess?”
Marilyn Chappell, the dance school’s director says that Ainsley has reminded us all to embrace who we are.
