I don’t know about you, but my childhood was all Disney Princesses, all the time. And I literally mean all the time. I watched all the movies, had all the pajamas. Heck, I even ate all of my meals out of an Ariel bowl.
Ahhh, the memories! So enchanted and…unrealistic. Let’s be real here! There is no way that I’m going to have that small of a waist. And giving up my voice to go find a guy that I’m supposedly in love with after only a few minutes of staring at him as he lies unconscious on a beach?! Nope, no way. Sorry Ariel, I love ya, but I have better things to do.
Lucky for us, the past year has seen a pure re-imagining of the Disney Princesses that make them a bit more, shall we say…fierce? From steampunk to hotdogs, may I present to you the new, the fantastic, the hairy?… Disney Princesses!
Disney Princesses with Realistic Body Hair
My eyebrows are bushy and I’m proud.
Disney Princesses with Realistic Head Hair
Work that frizz, girl. Flaunt it.
Disney Princesses with Realistic Makeup
Waterproof mascara for the win.
Disney Princesses as Breast Cancer Survivors
Yes. Just yes.
Disney Princesses as Steampunk Goddesses
Because who doesn’t love steampunk?!
Disney Princesses if they were ‘Racebent’
Because representation is relevant.
Disney Princesses if they were ‘Genderbent’
Because girls can be whoever they want to be.
BONUS! Disney Princes as Disney Princesses
Because boys can be whoever they want to be, too.
Disney Princesses as Zombie Apocalypse Fighters
Because why the heck not?
Disney Princesses as, well, Disney Princesses but sassier
All the sass.
And one more, cause these are just too good.
And finally, Disney Princesses as Hotdogs
Yum! I guess? I don’t care, these are freaking cool.
