On Buzzfeed, a gallery of "punk" (more generic goth/emo/punk/industrial subculture) Disney princesses, ganked from an unspecified Tumblr (anyone know which?).
Update: It's from Princesses Gone Wild -- thanks Veronica Beaty!
Punk Disney Princesses
Neat, Disney Suicide Girls, my favourite.
Yeah, I believe I stumbled this the other day. I don’t understand how people can mess up 2 completely different subcultures. I mean, I know some hardcore and thrash bands have crossed over (DRI, Corrosion of Conformity, Circle Jerks, Anti-Nowhere League) but it’s really simple to find out the genre/fashion style of a certain culture when you have the internetz at your fingertips instead of assuming. Or maybe I’m just getting old and bitter. It’s probably the latter. :(
” it’s really simple to find out the genre/fashion style of a certain culture when you have the internetz at your fingertips instead of assuming. ” I don’t think it’s as easy as you say. Many subcultures share attributes and the lines are drawn finely between them- and they’re usually defined several times over by members of those subcultures. Tattoos, piercings, black lipstick, unnatural hair colours… that’s what I see when I look at those pictures and I can’t tell beyond that. If you’re into it, you probably discern subtle clues that allow you to pinpoint the subculture, but it’s not as easy as googling. You have to have prior knowledge.
It’s kind of like birdwatching. Is it a nightingale, or a thrush? Beats me, it’s a bird.
Yeah. God knows nobody would ever own both Iron Maiden and Flogging Molly t-shirts.
Yeah, god knows I was only referring to the t-shirts…
Were you referring to improper tattoos and/or piercings? or just the fact that some subcultures may have been improperly umbrellaed under “punk” in the post?
For a second there it seemed like you might be bent outta shape that tattooed Alice wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a ‘tallica shirt.
I believe it is from http://aloadai.tumblr.com/ but I was only able to find the Ariel post: http://aloadai.tumblr.com/post/13767701791/click-for-color-if-you-want-to-repost-the-color
Original Tumblr is here: http://princessesgonewild.tumblr.com/
I know she’s technically not a princess, but Alice (and the cat she hangs out with) has been straddling the two subcultures for a while now. Sadly that Burton movie kind of ruined her for both sides.
So, anybody wanna take a crack at turning the Suicide Girls into Disney Princesses?
Love the contrast of the alice band and the tattoos.
I like it – but -10pt on the Rammstein shirt, and not going with the old school KMFDM.
Prince Beast is pretty hot with that earring.
I like him better with fur.
