Artist Creates Realistic Versions Of Disney Princesses And We Love It

Artist Creates Realistic Versions Of Disney Princesses And We Love It

Disney films have never been known for giving us realistic expectations of anything, whether love, friendships or living happily ever after.

And now, one hilarious Instagram account, @andhikamuksin, has made light of Disney's perfect facade by depicting what our favourite Disney princesses would look like in real life.

The Jakarta-based illustrator makes light of the situations the princesses are thrown to and puts an IRL spin on things we all previously took for granted, such as Belle from Beauty and the Beast looking in the mirror, or Jasmine from Aladdin trying to clamber onto - and stay on - the magic carpet.

No Disney princess is immune from Andhika Muksin's more realistic eye: on the account, you can also see Snow White "waking up from the dead. Literally", Sleeping Beauty snoozing with her mouth wide open and Cinderella doing an ugly crying face we can all relate to.

The artist told Buzzfeed that he was inspired to make the relatable photos after his perspective on the childhood characters shifted.

"Like millions of others, i grew up watching Disney films and obsessing over the characters. But as I became an adult, my perspective of these childhood icons also shifted," he said.

"I started to see them from a more complex point of view... Then ideas started popping in my head - like Aurora is such a graceful and reserved character, but I bet she'd lose it a bit at Coachella."

As well as photoshopping the Disney princesses we know and love reacting in a more realistic way to the challenges they face, Andhika also creates Disney versions of iconic photos, for example photoshopping the princesses' faces onto a photo of the Spice Girls, the characters from Mean Girls, or onto a Vogue cover.

BRB, going to spend the rest of the afternoon rewatching old Disney films and fangirling over this entire account.
