Unhappily Ever After


Ever wondered what happened to all those Disney princesses who got their happy ending at the end? As in, what happened after the happy ending? Enjoy, you sadistic bitches.

Ariel from Little Mermaid

"Mom! A real life mermaid! Like in those movies!"

Belle from Beauty & The Beast

Guess Man Beast is hotter than you now huh, Belle.

Cinderella from Cinderella

Prince is always out-stationed huh?

Princess Jasmine from Aladdin

"Damn those Americans!"

Little Red Riding Hood from Little Red Riding Hood

A very happy, hungry wolf is waiting for you, Red

Rapunzel from Rapunzel

That's it honey, embrace chemo. Lose the ridiculous wig.

Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty

"Sir, dragging your wife and her bed is prohibited here."

Snow White from Snow White

Don't you wish he never came and rescued you?


These brilliant photos are works of the Dina Goldstein, and this is her Fallen Princesses work:

Fallen Princesses place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The ‘…happily ever after’ is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues.”...I began to imagine Disney's perfect princesses juxtaposed with real life issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues.

Life is never a fairy tale. Not even for them.

To me, Princess Jasmine and Rapunzel stand out in this series.

Jasmine was probably self-radicalised, yet she carries an M-16, the weapon of the good guys, as opposed to the AK-47.

And Rapunzel losing her hair...through chemo? This is the most sad of all the pictures.

Azhar: well, i guess thats THE most realistic one...

Daniel: yeah! i love that picture the most! so hot!

wordsonjpgs: yup, i think so too. jasmine looks like she's actually doing something for her country, and rapunzel is a very sad reality for women with cancer...
