Is This Real Life?

Have you ever wondered what Disney princesses would look like if they were drawn more realistically? I mean, in real life, there's no way Ariel's 4-foot bangs could stay up like that. Well, apparently a Finnish artist named Jirka Väätäinen took on this challenge of making Disney princesses a little more realistic. Take a gander:










Ok, I confess, one of those isn't a Disney princess - Mulan isn't technically royalty.

You can check out the rest of Jirka's work on this Disney theme by clicking here.

Thanks to faithful reader, Bethany, for sending this one in!

I like Belle the best (as a cartoon AND real life sketch).

Laughed out loud twice. First with the four foot bangs line. Second with Homer. Great Stuff.

That's really cool! I totally think he based these caricatures on real people, Rapunzel looks just like Dakota Fanning! I think Cinderella looks like Naomi Watts and there is some Kardashian to Jasmine, but he reworked the nose.

I see Rapunzel and Kim Kardashian, but I don't know about the Cinderella/Naomi Watts connection.

Glad to have you here, Danelle! :)

I loved the Homer Simpson in there to cleanse the palate.

Thanks, Neil. I thought it was getting a little too sugary sweet, too.
