This Creative Illustrator Re-Drew Classic Disney Characters Wearing Outfits Of Other Characters From Their Respective Movies

by Elana

Japanese hobby artist Haruki Godo, is a fan of Disney, "especially after the Disney Renaissance." They have said that everything they've drawn regarding Disney fan art has been done for fun and out of respect for the original designs.

They take no commissions for their spectacular work and just enjoy sharing their creativity with fellow Disney fans. When they created this illustrative series featuring Disney girls wearing the clothing of other characters, they were surprised by the enthusiastic response to their work, saying:

"I have never expected I receive so many responses, even though I just draw my favorite things."

The series is beautifully and creatively done, with absolute respect to the original costume designs which have simply been molded perfectly to the female characters. You will easily see the classic Disney energy you love as a Disney fan in each and every piece.

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to see a parallel series featuring Disney dudes wearing princess outfits, that won't be happening. They said:

"I have absolutely no plans to do boys version, by the way. I'm sorry if you expected it."

Either way, we couldn't be mad if we tried! There's plenty of beautiful art to go around from this talented artist.

5. Snow White in Prince Florian's clothes

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs took around three whole years to complete and it went way over it's $250k budget, costing an unprecedented $1.5 million. With inflation taken into consideration, that equates to $24,843,323.35 today.

Walt Disney mortgaged his home to finance the film. Thankfully, it paid off because it earned Disney $418 million in box office revenue (again, for inflation that's like $6.9 billion...)

10. Princess Jasmine in Aladdin's clothes

In the original draft of Disney's Aladdin, his mother was featured! According to Screenrant:

"One of the biggest messages in the original script was doing good by mom and striving to make the right choices. Though an amiable concept, it was going nowhere."

12. Mulan in Shang's clothes

In the 80's, original ideas for Mulan's story were nothing reminiscent of Hua Mulan's story that was eventually adapted by Disney. According to Radio Times:

"In the first ideas for Mulan back in the 80s when it was a straight-to-video animated short called China Doll it was a different thing entirely. It was about an oppressed woman in China who fell in love with a British soldier who sweeps her off her feet and out of China. No animator wanted to be attached to it though, and consultant Robert San Souci put forward the new idea of looking at Hua Mulan. Phew. It still took awhile to get Mulan to the character we know."

14. Esmeralda in Phoebus's clothes

According to Oh My Disney!:

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame was a huge undertaking, and actually included ten minutes of footage created by about 100 artists and animators at the Disney Animation Studio in Paris. Because it’s set in Paris, this added an extra layer of authenticity to the architecture and landscape seen in the movie."

15. Pocahontas in John Smith's clothes

To create the single character Pocahontas alone, a whopping 55 animators were involved. Irene Bedard, who voiced Pocahontas, was also used as a physical inspiration for the character and her movements.

17. Vanellope in Ralph's clothes

According to Oh My Disney! Ralph in Wreck It Ralph was almost a radically different character in many ways:

He was also almost a monster, an ogre, a caveman, Sasquatch, and a gorilla. Screenwriter Phil Johnston even imagined him as, “part cat, part baboon, part dog, part skunk, part weasel, tapir, pig, wild boar, one-forty-third ape.”

18. Megara in Hercules' clothes

Before James Woods voiced Hades, the character was written to be much more stoic and menacing. Today, he is one of Disney fans' favorite villains.
