Fallen Princesses: When Fairy Tales End with ‘Unhappily Never After’
August 25th, 2013
Princesses have it all. Or do they?
All of Disney’s tales end with happily-ever-afters. They are called ‘fairy tales’, after all. Dina Goldstein decided to inject a bit of reality into their stories though and came up with this series, which she aptly dubbed Fallen Princesses.
The series features some of Disney’s most well-known princesses living a not-so-happy life after their movies’ supposed happy endings. Snow White is a mother of four kids with a good-for-nothing prince, Ariel is displayed as an attraction in an aquarium, and Jasmine looks like a fierce combatant clutching a weapon in the middle of a raging war.

The entire Fallen Princesses series, along with essays, interviews and commentary is available as a custom-printed book over at blurb for about $57(USD).
