MUST See: An Artist Reimagined Disney Princesses! [Photo]
How ADORABLE!!! “So Tumblr artist lettherebedoodles created W.O.C. of her own, reimagining some Disney princesses and other female characters with a “race-bent” twist. We would watch all of these movies.” Check out what the artist had to say about the images below! & Also be sure to check out our gallery above for the BEAUTIFUL photos!!
“There wasn’t really any rhyme or reason to my choices,” the artist, who goes by TT, explained. “I just started fiddling with the images and these happened.”
“I honestly just did this for fun. No political agenda, no ulterior motives,” TT continued. “I just love Disney and chose a few of my favorite characters to alter. I feel like there’s beauty in every racial background, and this is honestly nothing more then an exploration of different races from a technical and artistic standpoint.”
“Fairy tales are constantly being taken out of their cultural context. Most of the fairy tales that we know now were taken out of their original cultural context and altered,” TT says. “Aladdin was originally set in China. The Frog Prince was Latin, and was altered over and over again in several countries. The stories have been and can be altered in many ways. *shrugs*”
“I create racebent characters simply for fun and because I’d love to see more diversity in our media,” TT concludes. To which we repeat: We want all of these movies for real. Let’s start with reimagined Jasmine (that one knocked our socks off) and go from there!
