We love Seven’s take on Maleficent and Aurora (check out that green cocktail ring!) The fight between good and evil is a longstanding fairytale tradition and Seven beautifully portrays the battle.

In one of the most incredible images in the Disney Princess self-portrait series, Seven wears a storybook-worthy Cinderella gown and looks ready for her carriage to whisk her away to the Prince’s ball!

This version of Seven dressed as Princess Jasmine is amazing. We love the jewelry (those earrings!) and the background Seven created for the image. You can almost imagine her bursting into the hit song “Speechless” from the live-action Aladdin film.

Just as impressive as her Princess styling skills is the fact that Seven photoshops the backgrounds and other finishing touches (we see you, Rajah!) in every Disney photo manipulation she shares. The talented digital artist even offers Photoshop classes.

More Disney Princess Transformations!

If you love the escape that comes with seeing real women transformed into Disney Princesses, you’ll love this other Disney art too.

This Brazilian photographer helps expectant mothers see the beauty of their pregnancies by taking Disney Princess maternity photos.

Some artists have also opted to flip the Princess narrative on its head and reimagine our favorite characters in completely new roles. This fashion photographer reinvented our favorite Princesses as women in the real world.

Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Anna and Elsa, and the rest of the Disney Princess crew have also been transformed into Roaring 20s vixens and traditional Japanese geishas.

From Symone Seven’s inspirational photos that show women of color (and every woman!) that there are no limits to artists’ reinvention of all the Princesses we know and love, there’s no shortage of inspiration to add Disney magic to your life. You don’t even have to be young enough to visit the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!
