Disney Princesses As...

Last year I showed you Disney princesses as all sorts of things (hipsters, steampunk princesses, zodiac princesses, princesses in lingerie... a whole menagerie of "princesses as," as well as princesses IRL). But the internets just cannot get enough of Disney princesses reimagined (thank god), and for awhile there, it seemed like I was stumbling across new incarnations of them nearly every day!

So I'm back this year with another little spotlight on these fun, inventive, intriguing creations from a whole slew of talented artists.  Check them out below, and let me know your favorites, or any you've run across, in the comments.

In one of the more fascinating series, Claire Hummel has reclothed the princesses in historically accurate costumes, and I bow down to her.

Deviant Artist Hyung86 has a whole series of "Disney University" reimaginings, which attempt to pair the characters with their modern college campus alter egos. My favorite? Probably a toss-up between Merida, Wendy, Megara, Snow White, Mulan... oh damn, I love them all. [And yes, I know I said "princesses" and then almost immediately showed you a man, but Hipster Pinocchio was too much to resist!]

Jeftoon01 brings us a much darker vision of these Disney characters with these "Twisted Princess" creations, which see the beloved princesses turned homicidal maniac. Fun for the whole family! ;)
source
And speaking of homicidal maniacs, clocktowerman reinvents the princesses as zombies, killing your childhood one character at a time (but making your adulthood more awesome).

source
DjeDjehuti merged the princesses and other characters with the characters from Game of Thrones in one of the most genius pairings I've seen in awhile. I mean, Belle as Margaery Tyrell? Snow White as Shae? Mulan as Brienne of Tarth, oh man, I lost it at that. So perfect.
source
LiberLibelula merged Disney and World of Warcraft, and though I know next to nothing about WoW other than that a kid I knew legally changed his name to his WoW character and was promptly disowned by his family (I kid you not), the art on these is gorgeous. And that's all I need to know.

source
And lastly, Amy Mebberson became my favorite person ever when she made drew Disney princess versions of each of the Doctor Who doctors, and fandoms everywhere sobbed with the joy of it.

And there you have it! Lots of princesses, lots of talent, and lots of browsing potential to keep you occupied for some time. But seriously, click through to these fantastic artists, check out all of the amazing adaptations they've come up with, and give a like or a comment to show your approval of their awesomeness!
And let me know your favorites, or any you've come across, in the comments!

  3. Wow, I haven't seen any of these! As a DW fan, I love that one, but the historically accurate costumes stir up my imagination, and the Disney University ones are just FUN.

  5. Here's some images of Disney princess in Thai traditional costumes. As a Thai-American, these practically scream my entire childhood. http://bangkok.coconuts.co/2014/01/21/disney-princesses-thai-traditional-costumes

  8. Claire Hummel's princesses are my favourite, and I also love the twisted princesses! And those WoW princesses are great, too, although like you I'm not really well versed in WoW.

    There's Sadyna at Deviantart, who has given the princesses a "warrior princess" make over (and she's Finnish, yay, represent!): http://sadyna.deviantart.com/gallery/46841733
