APEX, N.C. — A little girl in a hot dog costume has taken the internet by storm.
As it turns out, the girl dubbed “The Hotdog Princess” is from central North Carolina, WNCN reported.
The girl underneath the costume is Ainsley Turner, a 6-year-old girl from Apex who takes dance lessons at the Holly Springs Dance Studio. She started making waves last month when she wore her favorite costume to class on “Princess Day.”
“I love that she felt confident enough to come to the studio dressed in something that she felt was appropriate and would be fun,” said Marilyn Chappell, owner of Holly Springs Dance Studio.
And, Ainsley was sure to make it known she wasn’t against princesses by wearing a dress along with her hotdog.
“She had it on underneath in case she got hot in her hotdog. But she literally took the hotdog off for ten minutes to cool down in the middle of class and then it went right back on,” said Grayson LaMontagne, Ainsley’s dance teacher.
The pictures of Ainsley in class have gone viral. Stories about her confidence are circling the globe, popping up in fashion magazines and even inspiring a new Lego princess.
