We all know what famous Disney princesses and villains look like in the cartoons and movies but what about in real life? How do their beautifully exaggerated features translate into real humans? Pretty good! Artist Avalonis attempted to make real life Disney characters by piecing together real life famous features as reference points. I think she nailed some of them.
Avalonis said that there's a lot of photo manipulation in these pictures and she spent a lot of time perfecting them until she got "the right features and made them real enough looking." Some of them are right on the money of what I imagine a real life version of them would be but she had some difficulty with "ridiculously proportioned Disney characters" (think Hercules, Cruella and some villains).
Which ones are your favourite?
Here is the order of the characters brought to life, from left to right, row by row:
