'Velociprincess' by illustrator Laura Cooper comically combines two iconic film franchises by melding together Jurassic World's fearsome velociraptors with several different animated Disney characters.

Cooper's Velociprincess project features illustrations of raptors dressed in the iconic clothing and hair styles of several classic Disney princesses including Mulan, Cinderella, Jasmine and Snow White. The end result is an absurd, yet inspired re-imagining of two seemingly unconnected elements of pop culture.

Cooper cited a lifelong fascination with Jurassic Park as her inspiration for Velociprincess and said seeing the velociraptors in the new film Jurassic World left an immediate impact on her. She says: "I kept thinking about how they just ate everything! All the people were getting eaten! What if they were princesses?! What if they were magical, wonderful, beautiful people!?"
