"Black Panther" has been one of Marvel's most successful films to date, and let's face it — that has A LOT to do with the huge amount of melanin people were able to love up on in the theaters. 

One of the most beloved "Black Panther" characters is Princess Shuri, played by Letitia Wright. People fell in love with her hilarious pranks, gorgeous braids, and lovely representation for Black girls in STEM.

Princess Shuri is also technically Disney's second Black princess ever (first came Princess Tiana, voiced by Anika Noni Rose) — so why didn't she get the swift Barbie treatment

Marvel missed the Wakandan boat on that one... but a creative mom didn't!

Since Marvel didn't make a "Black Panther" Barbie, this crafty mama DIY'd a Princess Shuri Barbie for her daughter.

The mom and daughter go by the name My Froggy Stuff on Youtube and Instagram and have gotten Insta-famous for their crafty dolls, doll houses, plus doll reviews. 

Their Princess Shuri doll is a custom creation and not officially affiliated with Marvel Studios, Barbie or "Black Panther" in any way.

My Froggy Stuff started with the official Princess Tiana doll ($10, Shop Disney).

She removed the doll's hair and then used this yarn threading and weaving tactic to give the doll head Princess Shuri's braids.

The result is a Princess Tiana-Shuri doll with glorious yarn braids. 

Next, she created Princess Shuri's dress inspired by this gorgeous white bodycon style Letitia Wright wore in the movie.

Sigh. This white dress made Princess Shuri look like a straight up goddess.

My Froggy Stuff used mesh and fabric from a dress she had to pull off the Princess Shuri bodycon.

And a miniature Princess Shuri goddess was born!

The next step: Creating the flawless braided Princess Shuri bun.

She executed this look FLAWLESSLY. Can I have the Princess Shuri bun hook-up in real life?

Of course, she couldn't leave out Princess Shuri's tribal dots. 

Here's the final custom Princess Shuri doll in all her Wakandan glory.

Wakanda forever FLAWLESS!

But My Froggy Stuff felt like Princess Shuri deserved more of the Wakanda treatment — so she built her an ENTIRE lab, complete with King T'Challa as the Black Panther!

This is so adorably extra and beautiful. It totally makes me want to go Wakanda to hang out with Princess Shuri IRL. 

Marvel kind of should have done this so all the little girls obsessed with brains and melanin-filled beauty of Princess Shuri could add another brown doll to their collection — but thankfully, this mother used her creativity to fill the void for her own daughter.

Crafty moms and Black Disney princesses for the win! 

(But yeah, Marvel. What's good?)
