All hail the hotdog princess!

In a world full of princesses, five-year-old Ainsley dared to be different.

And by different, we mean she chose to be a hot dog. The world has now gone hot-diggity mad for the #hotdogprincess and the powerful message her daring move projects.

Let’s be frank – this is the best Princess costume we have ever seen.

Like the rest of her classmates, Ainsley was more than excited for her dance school’s Princess Day where the students were given permission to come to class donned in their best gowns and draped in their finest fabrics.

While most of the kids in the class dug out their Ariel tails, Belle gowns, Cinderella dresses and Elsa capes, Ainsley waltzed in to class wearing a hot dog suit.

And, naturally, the Internet has gone absolutely crazy for the little girl who chose to think outside the bun with her delicious attire.

A spectator at the North Carolina dance studio posted a few photos of the sizzling performance with the comment, “It was princess day at dance and one little girl came as a hot dog. I have never admired someone more.”

Since then #hotdogprincess has been steadily climbing the trending ladder and the little girl is digesting her new found fame.

As her proud father, Brandon Turner points out, “No parent is ready to learn that their daughter is trending… Best part is it was all her idea!”

So what made the little girl decide to dress like a classic American frankfurter?

Like the rest of the girls in her class (and in the universe) Ainsley likes princesses. However, Ainsley’s dance teacher, Sarah Nativi tells BuzzFeed, “She wanted to be original and wear a hot dog costume instead.”

Ainsley did wear a dress underneath it so she could be a princess on the inside. And just in case she got too hot as a hot dog.

If you can look past the absolute awesomeness of her costume, Ainsley’s bold move is also sending a message to the universe – it’s okay to be different as long as you be yourself.

If you want to be a princess, be a princess. If you want to be a hot dog, be one.
