What woman hasn’t wanted to be a Disney Princess at some point in her life? Princesses are graceful, beautiful, and beloved.
Plus, you get to wear glass slippers, a pretty ball gown, and in the end, your Prince Charming whisks you off your feet and you live happily ever after. Right?
Maybe not. Indonesian artist Andhika Muksin likes to imagine famous Disney characters as you’ve never seen them before, with more humanity. These 15 illustrations show us what Disney princesses might act like if they lived in our reality.
1. Calm down, Mom.
It’s just a haircut, gosh.
2. No, it can’t be:
3. Just wake me up when we get there:
I’ll give you five stars, I promise.
4. Do I have to marry this prince?
There are other options, right?
5. I missed you too dad:
Now please let go.
6. I need my beauty sleep:
And my beauty mask.
7. Wanna go to the prince’s ball?
8. I couldn’t resist:
Hahaha, what a stupid face.
9. Things got weird…
I would like to apologize for the things I did on our last Zoom call.
10. Step-mom life:
Not so evil now, am I?
11. Oh, sorry, I have to go…
I don’t date chumps. Later sk8ter.
12. It’s movie night, ladies:
Captions on or off?
Please go away, Eric.
14. Just leave me alone!
It’s my hair, and I can destroy it if I want to!
15. It was love at first socially distanced sight:
A mask can’t hide true beauty.
Not even a Disney princess looks perfect all the time.
Some of these are just silly, but it’s legitimately comforting to realize the Disney princesses we idolized as kids were just fantasies of what a woman could be. In reality, nobody is perfect all the time. And that’s ok. We’re only human.
