Top 100 Pop Culture Ideas in August

From Disney Princess Superheroes to Satirical Selfie Sketches

— August 31, 2014 — Unique
With Comic-Con taking place last month, the most popular August 2014 culture ideas spotlight a wide variety of comic and superhero-related products, fashion and art. From aging superhero photography to healthy superhero-inspired snacks and Disney princess superhero makeovers, every consumer can satisfy their nerd-related needs.

It is important to note that pop culture continues to feed its appetite for all things Disney. This particular month sees the iconic characters -- such as Ariel, Jasmine and Cinderella -- used to raise awareness about domestic abuse. Illustrator Saint Hoax portrays the lovable princesses with bumps, bruises and gashes all over their faces.

Taking a lighter approach, Blogger Ellephantidelli transformed everyone's favorite Disney characters to members of the Avengers.

Trend Hunter's Pop Culture Trend Report offers more in-depth research and additional examples of the top August 2014 culture ideas.
