And Now, Frozen’s Olaf As Disney Princesses, Because Why Not

Given the properties of frozen water, I find it unlikely that Olafiel here is going to be able to get very far under the sea. Her land-dwelling counterparts will probably have an easier time of it, so long as Agrabah has snowy winters. Which I somehow doubt.

This madness is the work of Tumblr user TortallMagic, as part of the Daily Olaf fanart project. Click through for more cognitive dissonance.

Roller Derby Disney Princesses Will Mess You Up

Question: These Disney roller derby princesses by Amanda Robinson go up against Kevin Bolk‘s Marvel and/or DC roller derby girls. Who wins? I’m pretty sure the answer is Marvel and DC across the board because of their greater well of experience with violence. And, in some cases, superpowers. But Mulan could take some of ‘em out, right? Surely.

Or they all team up and roller derby some dudes into the dust. I like that prospect better.

Things We Saw Today: Game Of Thrones’ Wall On The Floor

This, incredibly, is a flat painting on the ground in London. Joe Hill, founder of 3D Joe and Max, said, “We were delighted to be approached by HBO to commission this artwork – we knew we had to do something really special to match the sheer scale of this phenomenal TV show that has swept the globe. That’s why The Wall in 3D works from more than one angle – making it a first in the 3D art world.” (via WinterIsComing)

A Woman’s Designed The Anti-Disney Princess, Except Not Exactly

As is often discussed by feminists and supporters of diversity, Disney’s Princesses do not offer girls the best role models, especially given the same-size Caucasian-ness of most of them.  Some of the Princesses are better than others, but in most ways the Princesses emphasize looking pretty, wearing pretty dresses, finding your Prince Charming and not a whole lot else. (As we’ve discussed, Frozen is a welcome departure from that on at least some levels!) So a California mom has begun self-publishing a series of books about characters she calls the “Guardian Princesses” with the goal of offering girls an alternative.  Fast Company described these as the “Ultimate Anti-Disney Princess” but the truth is that ultimately they’re a positive change but not yet a solution.
