Disney Princesses Re-Imagined as 'Game of Thrones' Characters

Have you ever wondered what your favorite Disney princess  would look like in a Game of Thrones parody? One talented artist decided to make those thoughts a reality.

Artist Sam Tsui is attracting a lot of attention for his  Game of Thrones inspired parody designs, re-imagining everyone’s favorite Disney princesses as characters from HBO’s hit series.

In his profile on deviantART.com , Tsui notes the project started as a “silly idea” before growing into his pet project:

This was a silly idea I had a little while back and so became a little pet project of mine – both the world of Disney Princesses and Game of Thrones have become so culturally pervasive, and feature such a diverse cast of ladies, it seemed crazy to me that this hadn’t yet been done!!”

Make sure to check out all 13 of Tsui’s Disney / Game of Thrones mash-ups below:

Ariel as Melisandre


Tsui on Ariel as Melisande:

“The iconic red hair made this pairing a no-brainer. Personality-wise, the sweet, naive Ariel is pretty much at the opposite end of the spectrum from Stannis’ ruthless, ambitious, fervent, and shadow-baby-birthing red priestess.”

Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) as Cersei Lannister


Tsui on Aurora as Cersei Lannister:

“Decided to dress Aurora up as the scheming, incestuous Lannister lady that everyone loves to hate. While the choice was mainly aesthetic (Aurora being the only Disney princess with Cersei’s iconic long, golden locks) I figure all the wine Cersei seems to be drinking probably makes her a little sleepy at times . . .”

Belle as Margaery Tyrell


Tsui on Belle as Maragaery Tyrell:

“Besides the fact that both Westeros and the world of Disney Princesses seem to be pretty scant on brunettes, the rose imagery at the heart of Beauty and the Beast made this match-up (with the Tyrell house sigil being, of course, a flower) pretty easy.”

Cinderella as Catelyn Stark


Tsui on Cinderella as Catelyn Strak:

“Both Catelyn Stark and Cinderella know what it’s like to have weirdo sisters, and Catelyn should have perhaps taken a cue from Cinderella and excused herself a certain wedding reception before the clock struck midnight . . .”

Elsa as Daenerys Targaryen


Tsui on Elsa as Daenerys Targaryen:

“Both Elsa from Frozen and Daenerys spend some time learning what it means to be a queen — although one has mystical ice-related abilities and the other is immune to fire and gave birth to three baby dragons, the platinum hair and their shared journey from meek and repressed little girls to badass queens made this choice a no-brainer.”

Grandma Fa as Olenna Tyrell


Tsui on Grandma Fa as Olenna Tyrell:

While Grandma Fa from Mulan is of course not a Disney Princess, I figured that she and Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns and matriarch of house Tyrell, were kindred-sassy-granny-spirits. “

Jasmine as Ellaria Sand


Tsui on Jasmin as Ellaria Sand:

“Those watching the HBO show [meet] Ellaria Sand [this season] . . . it made too much sense to cast Jasmine as a lady of Dorne, the sandy, vaguely Arabic/moorish kingdom in the south of Westeros.”

Lilo as Arya Stark


Tsui on Lilo as Arya Stark:

“I mainly picked Lilo to dress up as Arya because she’s one of the only Disney protagonists who’s just a little girl (I mean in the books Arya’s only like nine!!). It’s been a while since I saw Lilo and Stitch, but if I recall, Lilo was kind of spunky, if not as morbid or bloodthirsty as everyone’s favorite cross-dressing Stark.”

Merida as Ygritte


Tsui on Merida as Ygritte:

“Both Merida and Ygritte are instantly recognizable for their blazing red hair (it’s said that Ygritte is ‘kissed by fire’) and both certainly know how to handle a bow and arrow.”

Mulan as Brienne of Tarth


Tsui on Mulan as Brienne of Tarth:

“I mean, come on — both Mulan and Brienne know what it’s like to be warrior women in a man’s world.”

Rapunzel as Sansa Stark


Tsui on Rapunzel as Sansa Stark:

“Sansa gets a lot of hate, especially from book fans, but let’s face it, she’s had a tough life and spends most of the series captive or locked up in one tower or another. That’s, of course, why I picked Rapunzel, who knows a thing or two about being locked in a tower, to portray her.”

Snow White as Shae


Tsui on Snow White as Shae:

“I picked Snow White to represent Shae for one simple reason — they both really seem to like the company of dwarves.”

Tiana as Meera Reed


Tsui on Tiana as Meera Reed:

“This one may not be as obvious to non-book readers (in fact some of my show-watching friends I showed this series of illustrations were like ‘who the heck is Meera Reed?’), but Meera is of course the spunky girl helping Bran and crew reach the three-eyed raven north of the wall — The Reeds are the rulers of the Cranogmen, who live in the swamps and marshes and are sometimes called ‘frog-eaters’ — so I figured this Tiana, a bayou beauty herself, would be a perfect fit!”
