is a poet, writer, and fashion enthusiast who goes by Janice Glimmer online. In June, Hampton posted a TikTok video in which she dressed as Disney princesses, but with a twist. In place of ball gowns and a mermaid tail, Hampton instead wore items like a plaid miniskirt and graphic crop top to show how princesses might dress if they starred in movies from the 90s and early 2000s.
Her video quickly became a TikTok sensation, and has so far garnered more than 1.4 million views.
Speaking to Insider, fashion enthusiast Janice Hampton said she grew up loving Disney princesses and classic teen films
"One day, it came to me that combining the two would be the best of both worlds," Hampton said of her video idea, which pairs Belle with "Clueless," Aurora with "Mean Girls," Ariel with "Freaky Friday," Mulan with "She's the Man," and Cinderella with "A Cinderella Story."
Here are the summer dresses experts recommend to consider this summer
Present realities have shifted your summer dress options — and some of your needs. We asked fashion experts about the best summer dresses right now.With the summer heat officially here, there’s sometimes nothing more relaxing than a flowy dress to help combat the warm weather. But as things heat up, this unique season also brings along some new dress trends that are refreshing closets as people make way to spend more time in the sun — doing so according to safe social distance practices, of course.
She quickly figured out which movies she'd include in her TikTok, and what outfit each princess would wear — she even purchased a few extra pieces of clothing to help bring her ideas to life.
Hampton then filmed her TikTok video over the course of a few hours, as she wanted to ensure that her lighting was good, her moves were "just right," and that she used "the perfect song," among other factors.
While Hampton says it's tough to pick a favorite outfit, she really loves the looks she created for Belle as a 'Clueless' character and Ariel as a 'Freaky Friday' star
According to Hampton, she sees her Belle-inspired outfit as "the perfect blend of styles, colors, and aesthetics." Still, she said that not all viewers agree that Belle is a good match for "Clueless," to which Hampton disagrees.

"I think the movie fits her personality because, like Cher, Belle is focused, serious, has a single father, is wanted by a guy she doesn't like, and falls for a guy that she doesn't realize she's in love with until it's almost too late," Hampton said."Also, Belle's ball gown in 'Beauty and the Beast' is yellow, which links to the iconic, yellow plaid outfit Cher wears in 'Clueless.'"
"I decided to layer my own yellow, checkered dress over a white blouse in my video to pay homage to the way Belle wears a white blouse under her blue village dress," she continued. "And of course I had the half-up, half-down hairstyle for Belle, and then combined the white knee-high socks to be reminiscent of classic '90s fashion."
Hampton is also a big fan of her "Freaky Friday" spin on Ariel.
"I wanted 'Freaky Friday' for Ariel because in both movies, the heroine is a rebellious teenager, has issues with her parents, wants to be with a guy that her parents don't approve of, is involved in music, and has a hard time expressing herself while also being in a totally different body — and, of course, Ariel and Lindsay Lohan are both redheads," Hampton said.
This $10 T-shirt dress from Amazon just became a bestseller overnight
It's become a popular pick during Amazon's Big Style Sale.Amazon’s Big Style Sale features major deals on plenty of style essentials, from bestselling basics to comfortable leggings. Some of those items have been so tempting that they're already taking over Amazon's bestsellers list.
She added: "I wanted to stay true to Ariel's iconic purple seashell bra and green tail, but I knew I had to do a punk-rock look, so I styled a cropped lavender Led Zeppelin T-shirt with some army-green khaki culottes, and of course a black choker that's similar to the one Lindsay wears in the movie. This look is so unlike my personal style, so it was fun for me to dress outside of my comfort zone."
Hampton has created a follow-up video to her Disney-inspired clip, and is considering making a third
In her second video, Hampton shows what Rapunzel, Jasmine, Tiana, Elsa and Anna, and Snow White might wear in "Legally Blonde," "The Cheetah Girls," "10 Things I Hate About You," "John Tucker Must Die," and "13 Going on 30" respectively.
Hampton told Insider that she's in awe of the reaction her two videos have received, and that she's happy she was "able to connect with others through something that started out as just a little thought bubble" in her head. Still, she maintained that "tallying up views" can become "overwhelming," and that she feels it's important to "stay humble" and create videos that are "true to you and what you love."
Disney fans aren't all keen on the newly painted Cinderella Castle, but the park says it's still putting 'finishing touches' on the landmark

It's partially the reason why she posts other fashion-related videos on her TikTok page, some of which she creates with the help of her mom.
"I love finding ways to express myself in fun and artistic ways, and I enjoy how short, sweet, and to-the-point TikTok videos can be," Hampton said. "You can really pack a punch in a blink of an eye. I especially love making videos with my mom because she is my best friend and I want to include her in what I'm doing."
"The response to our videos together has been amazing, and I can't wait to make more with her!" she continued. "It's great to film with someone else, especially someone who supports you and has similar interests, because you can bounce ideas off of each other and find out what works and what doesn't. It encourages innovation."
Ultimately, throughout all of her videos — fashion-related or not — Hampton said she hopes that she can serve as "a source of positivity and inspiration for others."
"I really want my platform to be reflective of who I am — what I love, what I cherish, what I dream of, what I find nostalgic, and what I'm looking forward to in the future — and I want to connect with people through it," she said.
