Belgium-based artist Bruno Vilela has taken these amazing photographs in which he poses models as dead fairytale heroines.

Implications - While fairytales are generally considered happy, lesson-filled stories, particularly for children, they actually have quite the austere past. Many fairytales are rooted in dark and morbid themes, and today's consumers are not as turned off by such horrible takes on classic stories as they used to be, which gives creatives the opportunity to be as sinister as they want to be.
