Disney merchandise has a reputation for being extremely hit or miss with its fan base.

In some instances, Guests turn up in droves to get their hands on a new release or a limited edition, like those who lined Main Street, U.S.A. in Disney World to purchase exclusive event merchandise from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

In others, consumers take to social media to question the style choices of Disney designers, like those who were left underwhelmed and confused by the new Haunted Mansion line recently released at the Parks.

One fan used the popular TikTok trend “what I wanted and what I got” to reveal a Disney merchandise fail that resulted in 20 thousand new followers overnight. User @whattheygot showcased a horrifying line of face masks in a series of videos that fans need to see to believe.

The products are designed to turn purchasers into popular Disney characters using a full-sheet face mask. Below are the videos they’ve posted so far.

The Thumper Face Mask was first up in the video series. Derived from Disney’s Bambi (1942), the mask leaves the user looking more circus clown and less forest friend.

“I didn’t expect that,” user Sara commented. User Nisa wrote, “I can’t deal with it 😂 who’s making these masks 😂”

Next up was the Cruella Face Mask, meant to transform wearers into Cruella de Vil, the villain of Disney’s classic film 101 Dalmations (1961). The poster described this option as just plain “cruel.”

“My therapist will be hearing about you,” commenter @followforfollow wrote.

The Stitch Face Mask was possibly the most successful of the mask line, though per the Lilo & Stitch (2002) official film description he is “a runaway genetic experiment from a faraway planet,” so the likeness might not be saying much.

“Noo not stitch!” user Eva wrote.

One would think that the Aurora Face Mask would be a marked improvement, turning fans into the Princess from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty (1959). One would be wrong.

Commenters found the red lipstick, or lack thereof, a hilarious touch.

“I’m crying,” user @f9.xx2 wrote. In the words of Ariel (probably), we want to be where the face masks aren’t.

The original poster shared that these masks are available for purchase from Amazon, Primark, and several major retailers.
