Zombie Fairy Tale Characters

Witit Karpkraikaew 'Zombified Disney Princesses' Haunts Your Dreams

— August 13, 2012 — Pop Culture
Disney princesses don't look so sweet in the illustrations by Witit Karpkraikaew. In his series 'Zombified Disney Princesses,' all our favorite leading cartoon ladies have died and come back to life.

Mixing the undead with little girls' favorite fairytale characters certainly gives a totally different perspective on the stories. These illustrations are definitely not something that will put you at ease when you're reading a story before bed; instead they'll be certain to give you a few nightmares.

The princesses that Karpkraikaew has chosen to recreate and turn totally evil include Arial, Snow White and Cinderella. They certainly aren't child-friendly anymore, with super gory depictions showing their insides and destroying their beautiful faces. They also don't seem so innocent with the amount of cleavage he's drawn on.
Trend Themes
1. Dark Twist on Disney - Creating dark illustrations of childhood characters can provide a new way to revisit old stories and appeal to consumers interested in the macabre.
2. Subversive Art - Artists that create art that's the opposite of what's expected from classical, popular imagery can attract people looking for a new and unique perspective.
3. Controversial Concepts - Controversial art can be an opportunity to create media buzz, and while risks are involved, creators may expand their reach and appeal to consumers who enjoy pushing boundaries.
Industry Implications
1. Entertainment - Entertainment companies and artists can produce dark twists on popular children's stories to market towards adults who are looking for something unconventional.
2. Visual Arts - Visual artists can use the concept of juxtaposing disparate ideas -- e.g. childhood cartoons with macabre themes -- to create works that challenge and provoke their audience.
3. Advertising and Marketing - Advertising and marketing teams can create unconventional ads that incorporate unconventional imagery, potentially drawing the attention of consumers who enjoy being surprised.
