Did you ever spend summer days in your pool imagining you were princess Ariel? Or were you Sleeping Beauty waiting for your prince to awaken you from your slumber?

Most little girls dreamed of bringing their favourite Disney characters to life and one Finnish designer has done just that. Jirka Väätäinen has designed a series of Disney characters envisioned in real life by blending and mixing together elements from real life photos and by painting digitally in Photoshop.

If Ursula the evil sea witch scared you as a child wait until you see what she might look like in real life! 

Snow White, Esmeralda, and Alice are all here and if Ursula the evil sea witch scared you as a child wait until you see what she might look like in real life!
