Some of the world’s most renown designers have come together to give our favorite Disney Princesses a high fashion makeover which will serve as the enhancing holiday displays at Harrod’s, Europe’s largest department store located in London, England.
I found these interesting art pieces on Deviantart last week. They’re by the fantastic shoomlah, who has recreated the princesses as they would be if they wore costumes reflecting that of the historical time period! I think they’re fabulous! A lot of research must have gone into these, and the outcome is certainly to a high standard and they’re very beautiful pieces of art.
If you liked these, be sure to follow the links and check out even more of the artists gorgeous art. It deserves so much more recognition!
Deviantart is the best place ever for fanart and photography and traditional and digital art. It’s simply magnificent, and everybody’s so talented. So I was thrilled to discover this wonderful piece of art by Mayanna depicting the Disney Princesses in hipster style.
I think my favourite is Tiana or Meg! They’re so good! Anyway, this artist creates wonderful art, you should check her out! Especially if you like Harry Potter, Naruto, Death Note and Hetalia! Click the picture or go to the profile link below!
Sometimes I never know where to put an image when it crosses between two of our fandoms, but I think this is brilliant enough to put on both our Hunger Games site and our Disney site.
If you’re a fan of both, I think you’ll appreciate the great lengths this artist went through to draw this up. Look at their hardened faces, too! Notice the change of the mockingjay icon to something less birdlike and more fairylike.

The artist, blastedgoose, even put in little explanations for why each duo would be in those districts and for the most part, it works.
District 1 (Luxury) – Aladdin & Jasmine I had to choose characters who represented luxury, at the same time intimidating enough to be Careers. With themes like greed & temptation (Cave of Wonders) and Aladdin’s misguided notion that love be won with power and riches, they seemed to be a good fit.
District 2 (Masonry) – Shang & Mulan Shang and Mulan is the only Disney couple who are both military trained, so it makes sense they belong in the District that specializes in weapons and Capitol soldiers. Also, I can def see them as Careers.
District 3 (Technology) – Milo & Kida Who else imagined Beetee to look like Milo in the books? I did! I know Atlantis isn’t one of the more popular movies, but Milo and Kida fit in so well that I couldn’t leave them out! Plus the movie’s steam punk vibe totally fits the HG!
District 4 (Fishing) – Eric & Ariel Need I say more?
District 5 (Power) – Hercules & Meg Power has a triple meaning here. In the books, it refers to electricity, which goes hand in hand with the God of Thunder’s son. The second meaning is physical power, which Hercules possesses. Thirdly, the movie is all about the power of love, which is what drove Meg to sacrifice her life for Herc, and vice versa.
District 6 (Transportation) – Naveen & Tiana I thought of transportation here in an abstract sense. Of the Disney movies, the Princess and the Frog was the one that focused most on the concept of journey: the literal journey from the town to the Bayou and back, the emotional journey from ambition/greed to love, and the transformational journey from frog to human.
District 7 (Lumber) – Tarzan & Jane I know lumber comes from the forest and Tarzan is set in the jungle but SHUSH! It fits okay???
District 8 (Textile) – Charming & Cinderella Cinderella is basically a story about how a maid snagged a prince because she was wearing a nice outfit. Textiles = cloth = outfit. So there.
District 9 (Grain) – Beast & Belle This was the hardest to place. Beast and Belle fit NONE of the Districts, but they fell into the category of “how angry fans would be if I didn’t include him/her.” I tried to justify it by thinking that grain = seed = rose? Contrived but there you go. By the way… in this world, Beast is a muttation. When he was a child, he was affected by some radiation or whatever, but it only affected his physical appearance so he’s still eligible to compete in the HG.
District 10 (Livestock) – Quasimodo & Esmeralda Nothing too deep…I thought of Esmeralda’s goat and that was enough for me. Why not Phoebus? Because I hate him.
District 11 (Agriculture) – John Smith & Pocahontas Corn!
District 12 (Mining) – “The Prince” & Snow White The dwarfs were miners! Close enough! Oh and here’s some trivia for you. People think Cinderella and Snow White’s princes were both named “Charming” but actually, SW’s prince has never been referred to as such. He’s simply “the Prince.”
I’ve decided to take a poll on this then. Which district would you say the victor would come from? Vote below!
It would probably be easier to say which princess is your favorite princess if we go by the movie they starred in. But, what if, perchance, they were turned into little fighting machines that could kick your butt to Mars and back? What would they look like? Would you still want to hang out with them? I’m sure there is a number of fan art out there displaying our Disney princesses in ways we would never imagine (or maybe we would), but I found the following images to be very intriguing and fun and not so disgustingly perverted as some others may be. joshwmc at DeviantART was able to capture the princesses in warrior/fighter-type gear and positions that are sexy, but not in-your-face sexy, which I think is quite cool. Let’s see what you think!
Josh even provided a backstory for each of the princesses, which makes this kind of easy for me.

Mulan - An assassin who's a master of disguise
