Have you ever wondered what your favorite Disney princess would look like as a sloth? What a silly question. Of course you have. As some of the cutest and sleepiest beings that evolution’s ever brought us, they are bound to occupy your thoughts quite often.

According to his gallery, he puts Disney characters in familiar adult (and/or tabloid-y) situations as a “tribute to pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable attraction of celebrity.” You can see more of his work at his gallery’s website, or check out his show Disasterland in person if you’re currently in LA. (It opens tonight.) More
As long as the internet exists, there will be a market for Disney fanart. DeviantArt user Grodansnagel puts a Disney spin on Where Are They Now? with various princesses and their respective princes. Not to ruin anything, but the surprising result is they all have babies. Babies of differing ages and sizes! Some look like better parents than others, too. More
To “evoke lightness” (but definitely not subtlety) Louboutin made the 120-millimeter heels out of white lace and Swarovski crystals (which are like rich people ketchup, basically). Then he added some butterflies because butterflies are feminine and shit. More
So, two things: 1) Disney is rereleasing Cinderella on Blu-ray and DVD this fall (the vault is a harsh mistress) and 2) they’ve teamed up with Christian Louboutin to create some real glass slippers. The designer will “put his own ‘magic touch’ on the shoes,” which we take to mean “a red sole.” More
