Disney Princesses Change Things Up When This Artist Imagines Them As Different Races And Ethnicities

Beauty standards may vary from one country to another, but some types of beauty are appreciated internationally. The Let There Be Doodles Tumblr has recreated Disney princesses. He imagined what they might look like if they were from different ethnicities.

The modified Disney character illustrations make for an interesting thought experiment – how different might Sleeping Beauty have looked if Princess Aurora was of Jamaican or Argentinian ethnicity? How might Mulan look if the same story happened in the defense of Rome or Egypt? As the artist points out, “fairy tales are constantly being taken out of their cultural context. Most of the fairy tales that we know now were taken out of their original cultural context and altered.
