Fairytale princesses as high school students, hipsters and criminals

Some artists like to depict Disney princesses in modern times and make them high school or college students. Others like to portray these ladies from well-known fairytales as being naughty.
What follows is another batch of illustrations from pop culture artists dealing with fairytale princesses.

The folks at CollegeHumor imagined what Disney princesses would be like as modern high school students. Check out Ariel who just got her first boyfriend. (See article by Geektyrant.)


CollegeHumor also imagined the princesses as college students. Of course, Cinderella is forced to clean up after the people she lives with. (See article by Laughing Squid.)


DeviantArt user Eumenidi shows that Disney princesses aren’t morning people in her illustration “7:15 a.m.”


Cosmopolitan magazine commissioned Italian artist Michele Moricci to recast the Disney princesses as pop star Miley Cyrus. Here’s naked Belle on a wrecking ball. (See articles in Cosmopolitan and the Huffington Post.)
