The Dark Side of Disney… Dead Princess Gore

With two daughters, I am very aware of how insidious the Disney Princesses are. Especially for children of color, since the archetypes Disney shows my kids are indistinguishable – with the exception of hair color. On a deeper level, pushing princesses on our children upholds gender inequity (because it’s hard to focus on your mind when you are so focused on your hip to waist ratio), and financial inequity, because it shows monarchy – and by extension the 1% – as a benign, natural and desired status in human society. Since I vehemently do not believe in any of those things, and I am morbid to say the least, I love what makeup artist Mykie from Glam and Gore has done with her “Dark Side of Disney” series. Using her exceptional gore and horror makeup skills, she has recreated iconic Disney Princesses in their darkest moments– Snow White after eating the poisoned apple, the Little Mermaid after being hooked, Rapunzel after strangling herself with her own hair. I even threw in a couple more I thought were rad – the melting Wicked Witch of the West and real-life Barbie after botched surgery. If you share my morbid curiosities and/or my deep-seated hatred of Disney, enjoy Mykie’s creations below…

PLEASE READ THE CAPTION, this shit’s important. 👍 Thank you to the overwhelming amount of people (both my subscribers and hers) who defended me tonight when a popular Youtube makeup artist posted a verrry similar tutorial to my own Frostbite Elsa tutorial. I am completely humbled by your support, despite me being a much smaller channel. Real talk- I know that putting your work out there means that you should expect people will recreate it. I know that this is an industry that grows on taking inspiration from others, and I know that truly original ideas are hard to come by, often making the line a bit fuzzy. But even inspired looks should be done by adding something new & different to the one it came from. A remake of a specific tutorial which is then passed off as your own is not an example of that fuzzy line in originality. I spend a lot of time trying to come up with specific looks for you guys that I can’t already find on Youtube, so I am SO appreciative of everyone who has ever taken the time to defend me in one of these instances. Tonight has been an eye opener for me- mostly in the positive realm of how wonderful so many of you are. Love you all like Amanda Bynes loves twitter. 💙
