Here’s another one those mash-ups/art experiments that is sure to be met with equal amounts of awe and outrage from the geek community. Artist Mike Roshuk has taken classic Disney Princesses – the Walt Disney company’s cash-generating cadre of tiara-clad, sparkly-gowned, bluebird-serenading female protagonists – and transformed them into sexified, scantily clad warrior seductresses who looked like they walked out of Zack Snyder’s deepest erotic dreams. Sweet and innocent childhood icons like Snow White, Ariel, and Pocahontas have been outfitted in belly chains, armor, blades, and thigh-high stockings; ready to slaughter crappy CGI monsters in super slow-motion.

So what do you think? Is this a fun, badass, empowering makeover for the Disney Princesses? Or is it a misogynistic, exploitative nightmare that simultaneously objectifies women and ruins childhoods forever?

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
