Last October, accomplished artist Isaiah “Izzy” Stephens, a recent Media Arts and Animation graduate of the New England Institute of Art, combined his love of drawing with his love of strong female heroes to create a special Disney Princess Halloween series that caught our attention.

Isaiah’s awesome drawings feature Aurora, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, Ariel, Pocahontas, Belle, Jasmine, Cinderella, Mulan, and Snow White – all 11 official Disney Princesses – dressed up for Halloween as fictional heroines from classic comics, blockbuster films, popular TV series and books. What a fun and creative mashup that gives some of the more demure princesses a much needed edge!

Here are some of our favorites. See all 11 of Isaiah’s Disney Princesses in costume here.
