Which is the Most Feminist Disney Princess of All Time?


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a reason that Disney Princesses are looked at as The Perfect Women.

By lots of people.  Little girls want to grow up to be princesses.  Young women cosplay as sexy Disney Princesses.  Men want to be the hero that rescues the princess.

Yes, there’s a lot of desire from all aspects when it comes to who is, who wants to be, and who wants to be with a Disney Princess.

What if Disney Princesses were Real?


By web gangsta | Published:

This holiday season, little girls all around the world were presented with pink gift boxes filled with costumes and plastic jewelry all designed to fulfill their every wish and dream to be a Princess.

And it’s reinforced with various “Princess” clothing, “Daddy’s little princess” bumper stickers, and more.  Raising a girl to be self-confident in herself is one thing; to raise her to believe that being a princess is the end-all goal is another, which is why some people tend to take a negative view of the continual Princess merchandising deluge found in toy aisles everywhere.

Even so, there have been many variations on the classic Disney Princess stereotype over the years, whether it be COSPLAY, PHOTOGRAPHY, or FICTIONALIZED CONTINUATIONS of the classic stories, such as the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by author Anne Rice.

But with all the gender-endoctrination of princess-dom, there can be one way to make the life of a Disney Princess not seem as glamorous as it could be:

How to take over Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ve been there.

The yelling, the screaming kids.  The crowds.  The pushing and shoving.

Going to Walt Disney World can seem, to some, to be a form of modern-day warfare, with every tourist working hard to achieve the ultimate prize of a Relaxing Family Vacation (five days of fun crammed into three)!

You’ve felt like you were going to snap, didn’t you?

Oh yeah, and did we mention that they were dressed as their favorite SEXY DISNEY PRINCESS?

Disney Princesses in Real Life, a photo essay


By web gangsta | Published:

Jirka Väätäinen is a Finnish design student at Bournemouth, and he wants to be very clear that his name is pronounced “Yirka”, not “Jerk-a”.

Web Watch has no reason to quibble with him on this, as he’s doing some phenomenal work on RE-IMAGINING DISNEY PRINCESSES as if they were real-life people.

Sure, we’ve seen some other examples of this with live models, but Jirka is taking a slightly different approach on this with his photo-realistic, manipulations that are designed to showcase what the Disney Princess would look like as an actual person.

Not a cartoon caricature, but really-for-real people.

Let’s take a quick look…

What if Disney Princesses were tattooed and pierced?

Disney Princesses have inspired many fantasies, for girls and boys alike.

Girls, because they want to be just as glamorous, rich, desired… and more recently, smart and self-sufficient.   

Web Watch has covered the Disney Princess phenomenon in the past, from both a business and a fantasy viewpoint (Briana Garcia and her Funny Disney Princesses being a popular page here on Web Watch).

So why do boys like the Disney Princesses?  Because let’s face it — in the right circumstance, Disney Princesses can be hot.  Heck, how can you explain why seven dwarves fought over Snow White? Continue reading WHAT IF DISNEY PRINCESSES WERE TATTOOED AND PIERCED?

Deconstruction of the Disney Princess, or Rules for becoming a Disney Princess yourself

There have been any number of sociological reports written about how the Disney Princess marketing department — and let’s face it, the Disney Princess franchise really is a marketer’s dream in terms of how much product is sold — is leading to poor self-image in young girls.

Web Watch won’t harp on these particular topics. Continue reading DECONSTRUCTION OF THE DISNEY PRINCESS, OR RULES FOR BECOMING A DISNEY PRINCESS YOURSELF

Photographer Ryan Astamendi takes Real-life Disney Princesses photos


By web gangsta | Published:

Disney's Aladdin Jasmine Deluxe Adult Costume
Disney’s Aladdin – Jasmine Adult Costume

Ryan Astamendi is a professional photographer with an extensive portfolio of work.

One thing that he is becoming known for is his ability to recreate classic Disney Princess animated characters and turn them into real-life models.

Take, for example, the above stock advertising photo for a Jasmine costume from Disney’s Aladdin.  There’s nothing wrong with the photo or the model – it’s doing exactly what the marketing department requested.  If you’re looking for a costume, it’s perfectly adequate… but if you’re looking for the “essence” of the character, you have to look elsewhere.

That’s why what Ryan does is much, much more than just take a photo or two. Continue reading PHOTOGRAPHER RYAN ASTAMENDI TAKES REAL-LIFE DISNEY PRINCESSES PHOTOS

A Disney Dilemma: What will autistic children like Ben Miles do without the Snow White attraction?

Snow White's Scary Adventures
Snow White’s Scary Adventures

SNOW WHITE’S SCARY ADVENTURES is a classic Disney dark ride in Fantasyland, one of the original rides at both Disneyland in California and at Walt Disney World.

Go out and ride the Walt Disney World version of the ride while you can, because it is going the way of Mr Toad’s Wild Ride.  That is, Disney is ripping the ride out to make way for a Disney Princess meet-and-greet.

What?

Web Watch will break this down for you, summing up what other websites have already said:  Walt Disney World is currently in the middle of a long-awaited (and much needed) multi-million dollar expansion of Fantasyland, originally with the following changes: Continue reading A DISNEY DILEMMA: WHAT WILL AUTISTIC CHILDREN LIKE BEN MILES DO WITHOUT THE SNOW WHITE ATTRACTION?
