Disney Characters Discover Their Cliques


With Disney’s latest Pixar movie Monsters University hitting theaters next week, 27 year old illustrator and Disney fan Rubén B. Caballero (also known as Hyung86 on deviantART) decided to re-imagine his favorite characters as college students. Aside from putting them in modern clothes, he assigned them to various clubs and sports that would go along with their character. Aladdin loves breakdancing with Esmeralda on the school dance team. Snow White and Aurora are choir girls and love to help Kenai and Pocahontas with the Animal Welfare Association on campus. Tinkerbell is a cheerleader, while Peter Pan rocks eternally youthful Bieber-like style.

Disney Heroines Come to Life

Disney characters are iconic and have the magic quality of bringing back pleasant memories of the time we first saw them: whether at a cinema, one of the theme parks around the world or as a childhood toy. In Disney’s animated feature films their diverse characters have been seen all over the world and one graphic design student from Finland has created his own characterization of the loved Disney female leads.


Many girls dream of being princesses and many also imagine a fairy tale of their face gracing the cover of popular fashion magazines. Young artist, Tumblr user, and admitted Disney fan, Mary (Petite Tiaras) gives us a mashup of the best of both worlds by designing covers for popular fashion magazines, such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Elle, with Disney princesses as cover girls.

Disney Princesses In Accurate Period Costume

Most of the world seems familiar with the famous Disney princesses, from Snow White to Pocahontas their likenesses are burned into our memory, fan or not. What makes them so iconic? Many would argue it was their lavish and flowing costumes, based on historical fashion. But just how correct are those period fashionable dresses? Claire Hummel, an illustrator with a passion for historically accurate costuming recently reworked many of the famous ladies, giving them new garb fitting a stylish member of their periods society. As you can see in her version of Snow White above (based on early 16th century Germany), many of the original Disney costumes weren’t far off, while a few are vastly different.
