Enchanting Illustrations Reimagine Disney Princesses as Pregnant Women

Disney Princess Illustrations by Oksana Pashchenko

Disney princesses have received several makeovers throughout the years, including portrayals as noir-inspired femme fatales, modern-day millennials, and empowered career women. Now, artist Oksana Pashchenko brings the beloved fantasy characters into a playful new arc as pregnant women. Her enchanting illustrations place the Disney princesses and their sweethearts in the modern world as happy, expecting couples.

Pashchenko began drawing the series during her maternity leave and used her own experience of pregnancy as inspiration. Her illustrations depict each Disney heroine and leading man in the style of their movie, wearing contemporary clothing that reflects their personalities. And, in a quirky twist, the artist places them over a photographic background, to suggest these scenes were captured in real life.

A beautiful Tiana and dapper Naveen stand before the Drury Plaza Hotel in New Orleans, Mulan and Shang pose on the Great Wall of China in sporty attire, and Cinderella's twinkling maxi dress flows in the wind as she holds hands with Prince Charming strolling along the left bank of Rostov-on-Don. Pashchenko keeps an element of the characters' original wardrobe and color scheme in each illustration. The fun, however, is in how the artist humanizes these characters by placing them in a new phase of life. Even some of the princes, like Aladdin, are depicted with a “dad bod.”
