Things We Saw Today: Disney Princesses Show Their Age

Things We Saw Today


Artist Taija Vigilia was asked to depict the Disney Princess according to the year their films were released. So you’ve got a three-year-old Tiana and Cinderella is 62, etc.  (via The Uniblog

  • There’s an awful racist contingent to The Hunger Games news floating around today. Apparently, some fans are annoyed that Rue was cast with an African-American actor. Even though the character is describes as having dark skin in the novel. Huh. (via The Frisky)
  • DC Comics’ Batwoman, by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, picked up a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book.

Han Solo in carbonite as your cell phone case would be cooler if it were 3D but the detail is pretty impressive nonetheless. $14 on Etsy. (via Nerd Approved)

  • Wear the Cheese has put some of our favorite 80s characters to the Blechdel Test. That is, a scene in a show or movie in which two women discuss something that has nothing to do with a man. See if She-Ra, Rainbow Brite, and Jem pass.
  • Colin Smith blogs his thoughts on Wonder Woman #7 (which our own Susana had something to say about). It’s an interesting read.

Um…I might have to shave my head now. (via Fashionably Geek)

  • We’ve got the first, blurry, set photos from the CW’s Green Arrow show that feature Black Canary. No, unfortunately, no in costume. (via Blastr)
  • Belvedere Vodka President Charles Gibb apologized for the horribly offensive, rape-suggesting, ad on their Facebook page the other day. “It should never have happened. I am currently investigating the matter to determine how this happened and to be sure it never does so again,” he said. The company also made a donation to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. (via Yahoo)

Thank god this didn’t happen at my theater. I probably would have died without seeing The Hunger Games. (via He Geek, She Geek)
