Artist Turns Real-Life Female Role Models Into Disney Princesses

Artist Turns Female Role Models Into Disney Princesses

When artist David Trumble saw the sexy makeover Disney had given “Brave” Princess Merida, he was as appalled as we were, and he decided to use his artistic skills to show his concern. “I wanted to analyze how unnecessary it is to collapse a heroine into one specific mold, to give them all the same sparkly fashion, the same tiny figures, and the same homogenized plastic smile,” he told Women You Should Know. “I decided to take 10 real-life female role models, from diverse experiences and backgrounds, and filter them through the Disney princess assembly line.” The results were perky princess versions of amazing women like Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Marie Curie, Malala Yousafzai, and Gloria Steinem. (You can see them all here.)

Trumble was surprised by the reaction to the satirical images, specifically that many people didn’t find the images appalling at all — in fact, they loved them.

This Dad’s Disneyland Costume Would Make Walt Disney Proud

If you want to dress up as a Disney character for Halloween, there are so many to choose from: Snow White, Cinderella, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, and a plethora of colorful villains are all popular choices. But Rob Cockerham wanted to take the whole “Disney costume” idea to the next level; he wanted to dress up as Disneyland. Like, literally the entire theme park. He created the whole thing himself out of foamboard, paint, and accurate maps of the park, giving his face a prime spot in Cinderella’s Castle. Check out more photos of the finished product and the process at his website, and head over to YouTube to see a video of Rob’s costume in action, narrated by his adorable son. [The Mary Sue]

Little Mermaid Theater Ipads
Put down your damn iPads!

When I heard “The Little Mermaid” was coming back to theaters, I immediately started sobbing with joy and planning the outfit I would wear to go see it (something subtle like a flared skirt with green sequins and a seashell bra). There was just no way I would ever miss the opportunity to see one of my favorite Disney movies on the big screen. Even if I got food poisoning the day of the screening, or there was a fire in the theater, I would tough it out, and I would sing along with “Under The Sea,” and I would be jealous of Ariel’s hair, and I would struggle to reconcile my strong feminist values with a movie about a woman giving up her voice for a man she doesn’t even know, and it would be glorious.

But as I watched Disney’s promotional video about the release, I discovered there actually was one thing that might keep me from seeing “The Little Mermaid” in theaters: if everyone was instructed to bring their iPads to the movie theater and play with them the whole time instead of, you know, watching the freakin’ movie.

Last week, I wrote about how bummed I was that the heroine of Disney’s “Brave” is undergoing a makeover before she becomes an official Disney Princess. Her unruly hair is tamed, her figure is slimmed and the Scottish Princess is a much sexier version of the character millions grew to love.

I was only one voice in the outrage over this sex-ing up.  Writer and co-director of “Brave,” Brenda Chapman, who was the first woman to win an Academy Award for this animated feature film, wrote the Marin Independent Journal in an email:

“Merida was created to break that mold — to give young girls a better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model, something of substance, not just a pretty face that waits around for romance … They have been handed an opportunity on a silver platter to give their consumers something of more substance and quality — THAT WILL STILL SELL — and they have a total disregard for it in the name of their narrow minded view of what will make money.”

Change.org brought the issue to my attention and garnered the signatures of at least 200,000 people.  When looking at Merida’s swank new Disney Princess page, which uses the original Disney-Pixar animated character, it looked as if the outraged public had won.

Alas!  Not quite true … Keep reading »

In a New York Post expose that made my stomach turn, I learned that rich, Manhattan mothers have discovered the most despicable way imaginable to bypass long lines at Disney World: hiring disabled people to pose as family members so their precious children don’t have to wait in line.

According to the rules of the theme park, patrons with a wheelchair or motorized scooter can bring up to six guests to a “more convenient entrance.” The only other way to get preferential treatment at Disney World is to purchase a VIP Tour Package for $300-plus an hour, which includes a personal guide and fast passes. But even with the package, the park warns patrons that there “may be a waiting period before boarding.” In comparison, these “black-market Disney guides,” as they’re being called, cost about $130 an hour and are allegedly more efficient when it comes to cutting the line.
