Ohana means Family-Lilo & Stitch Nail Art Tribute

                                                        
Aloha Friends,

Welcome to another Disney inspired Nail Art Tribute! I beginning to think I have found my niche with illustrating Disney classics on my nails. I have so much fun representing some of my favorite characters. Today's set pays tribute to Disney's 2002 hit, Lilo & Stitch.

Stitch began his journey as "Experiment 626", a product of an extraterrestrial scientist named Jamba who created him merely to cause chaos. Stitch and Jamba were en route to exile on another planet but Stitch escaped to Planet Earth. Stitch crash lands in Hawaii where he was run over, mistaken for dead, and then taken to an animal shelter.

At the Animal shelter, he meets Lilo and her older sister, Nani. Lilo is an orphan struggling with anger management after the death of her parents. Lilo is left in the care of her sister, Nani who lets Lilo adopt a dog to help her cope with her loneliness. Lilo works to tame the rambunctious Alien (who Lilo insists is a dog) and teaches him the meaning of family.

I really appreciated the animation of this film because the backgrounds were watercolor much like earlier Disney shorts and the film, Snow White.

                                            
I thought the film did a beautiful job of illustrating the complicated and loving relationship between the two sisters with Nani having to take on a more parental role to her little sister.

I also loved how there was something real about Lilo, she had her bad days, she was sassy and imaginative instead of being a one-dimensional character.


Lilo & Stitch inspired sequels, games, and a TV series that ran from 2003-2006. That series had a really catchy theme song!
