This is what Disney princesses would look like if they were Catrinas for the Day of the Dead celebration – CINEMABLEND

From ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to ‘Pocahontas,’ Disney princesses get a makeover session, thanks to graphic designer and visual artist Karen Amador, to become catrinas and celebrate Day of the Dead.

Although it is true that Cocoanimated film by Adrian Molina and Lee Unkrich, is the first thing that comes to mind when we think of the relationship between Disney and Day of the Dead, now we have another option. Graphic designer and visual artist Karen Amador takes various characters from the animated world of Disney to make them look like catrinas.

Inspired by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada’s depictions of death, stylized skulls adapt the tender faces of young princesses to offer a cultural hybrid which includes an imaginary of childhood constructed by Disney (since the premiere of the film Snow white and seven dwarfs 1937) and the imaginary of Mexican traditions.
