Staying true to Disney’s family-friendly image, Disney Princesses are always portrayed in films, TV, and other forms of media in a wholesome way. Clearly, that golden rule works for Disney, as Disney Princesses has become one of the most successful franchises of the entertainment giant.
But because the Princess Line has been around for several years now, some fans have started to grow tired of the monotonous depiction of the Disney Princesses in official Disney projects. And since there’s no way Disney would abandon its virtuous portrayal of the characters, a number of digital artists have taken the challenge to satisfy their fellow fans’ hunger for an edgier presentation of the Disney Princesses.
One of these talented artists is the Russian illustrator Nata St. art, whose latest collection reimagines the Disney Princesses as tattoo-obsessed, cigarette-loving and gun-toting ladies. Called Swag Princess, Nata St. art’s new art compilation offers a refreshing and fearless take on the Disney Princesses that fans will likely never see in any Disney-commissioned project.
Nata St. art’s Swag Princess is quite similar to the items included in our previous listicles Disney Princesses as Outrageous Punks, Goths and Hipsters and Disney Princesses as Modern Day Millenials. So as a follow-up to these stories, we came up with a brand new list of fan art featuring the Disney Princesses in their most daring and wildest looks ever. In addition to Nata St. art’s works, this list also features creations by Canadian artist Emily Steckly, American artists kharis-art and BadxWolff, and many others.
#1 Pocahontas and Jasmine smoking hookah
Pocahontas and Jasmine are spending some girl time together while sharing a hookah in the middle of a lush green field. John Rolfe’s wife has had her first puff while the Princess of Agrabah is patiently waiting for her turn.
#2 Jasmine enjoying a wrap of tobacco
Jasmine is pleased by how her new collection of golden jewelry looks on her. So to relish the moment, Aladdin’s spouse lights up a wrap of tobacco and enjoys its smoke.
#3 Ariel playing NBA on Xbox
A certified Chicago Bulls fan, Ariel enjoys playing NBA on Xbox. Though she doesn’t seem to have anyone to play with, she has a whole pizza and cups of Coca-Cola to keep her company.
#4 Pocahontas chilling at her place
If not hanging out with Jasmine, Pocahontas spends some of her time in her bedroom surfing the Internet. Apparently, she loves doing this while snacking on her favorite macarons and Starbucks frappuccino.
#5 Cinderella trying on her fresh kicks
Cinderella tries on an Air Jordan at a local hip hop boutique and instantly falls in love with the shoes she chose. Will she also buy a cap to match her new footwear?
#6 Jasmine, Ariel and Pocahontas showing off their guns and bucks
Jasmine, Ariel and Pocahontas look dangerously beautiful in this fan art. But with the trio brandishing their guns and cold hard cash, we have a feeling that they’ve just got away from a big-time robbery.
#7 Kinky Belle serving tea
It looks like Belle is trying to seduce Beast over a tea date. But since Mrs. Potts and Chip Potts are also in the same room, we doubt that Belle will do things more provocative than that.
#8 Pocahontas and Mulan marking their territory
Pocahontas and Mulan are oozing with angst and swag in this piece of art. With Pocahontas toting a rifle and Mulan holding a pit bull on a leash, they seem to be very serious on guarding their territory from unwanted visitors.
#9 Glammed up Jasmine, Ariel and Pocahontas opening a Christmas present
Jasmine, Ariel and Pocahontas are sparkling with beauty, style, and fatal charm on Christmas night, which they happily cap by opening a huge present.
#10 Snow White taking a mirror selfie
To show off her new chest tattoo on social media, Snow White strikes a sexy pose in front of her bedroom mirror and takes a selfie using her iPhone.
