Disney princesses are so popular, they inspire a lot of crazy fan art. Some imagine them as mothers, some as hot dogs, but Russian artist Victoria Kosheleva has decided to make a project that’s dedicated to their appearance. Victoria has created versions of the beloved characters that aren’t tall and thin, and the images are making headlines over the internet.
Kosheleva has shared both the sketches and the finished drawings of her series ‘Fat Disney Princess,’ so we can follow her throughout the entire creative process. “As a child, I loved the bright Disney cartoon characters,” Victoria told Bored Panda. “I grew up watching their films and chose my profession – character designer – in many ways thanks to the world of Disney.”
“It was just a funny idea to [imagine] the princesses like ordinary modern women; with insignificant weight issues.” In the artist’s eyes, however, they all live happy lives and dong get upset about it. Kosheleva added round bellies to Ariel of The Little Mermaid, Snow White, and a few other ladies of choice.
