Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles, also known as "Sparkles," "DBS" or simply "The Duchess," eschewed the rules of royal etiquette from a young age.
It's not that she wanted to disappoint her parents, she just couldn't imagine living a life banned from Monopoly or squeaking with delight whenever she wants.
As anyone who has ever tried to curtsy with four legs will tell you, it is neither graceful nor ladylike, but an exercise in ridiculousness.
What she longs for is a life free from the spotlight, to discover the beauty of the real world outside the palace walls and away from the paparazzi. Since leaving, she’s held a series of jobs considered boring by conventional standards:
- Cheese Slicer (the cheese was just too tempting)
- Stapler (a declining industry thanks to email - people just don't collate like they used to)
- Envelope Licker (she enjoyed this, but an episode of her favorite comedy convinced her it's too dangerous)
- Toll Booth Operator (she loved meeting new people, though they often seemed in a hurry)
- Sport Clothing Product Tester (that came to a sharp end when she got moved to the hat department)
Despite forsaking her royal life, The Duchess' presence still commands attention whenever she walks into a room. She is, after all, still royalty, something unique to her extended family and the occasional Hollywood starlet.
She is currently in the second round of interviews to become a sign-holder for a local noodle house where she recently befriended an affable dragon. While she doesn't have actual sign-holding experience, the owner can't deny the fact that a unicorn waving his sign will turn heads, though he does worry that the medium may eclipse the message.
My daughter has an AFO brace on one leg and these are perfect to get her foot in without shoving it in. Love that you can get individual sizes too - much cheaper than buying the same shoe in 2 pairs!
They fit him perfectly. Planning to order him more.
The shoes are cute, but we didn't realize how sparkling the gold actually was until they arrived. My kiddo doesn't want to wear them and I've tried emailing to find out how to return the shoes or exchange for a design he wants to wear. So far I'm still waiting for a response.
