10 ‘Real Life’ Disney Princesses Deliver a Lovely Reality Without Spoiling the Fantasy

When it comes to inspiring the imagination, Disney is the master. They’ve got it down to a science to the extent that their make-believe is the be-all, end-all for countless little girls. They try to realize themselves as Disney princess and recreate in their own lives what they see drawn on the big screen.

Helsinki-based multifaceted designer Jirka Väätäinen first started imagining the Disney girls in real life a few years ago (as seen here on Babble) through digital compositing, photomanipulation and digital painting — and the popularity of his creations inspired him to make even more renderings.

The images have a way or putting a little reality into the fantasy — basically, just enough to give you a glimpse of what they’d look like if they were really real, but not enough to spoil the fairy-tale magic.

Take a look at some of Väätäinen’s fanastical, more recent Disney “real life” girls creations:
