This Artist Gave the Disney Princesses a Plus-Size Makeover, and HELL. YES.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Disney princesses represented a variety of body shapes and sizes? Well, wonder no more, because one artist already made your dreams come true by doing just that. Crystal Procknow, known to her Instagram followers as Neoqlassical Art, recently started sharing her brilliant illustrations of plus-size Disney princesses and other female characters, which she refers to as "Chubby Disney Ladies." When we say they're the most genius thing we've seen all week, we're not exaggerating.
"Since I'm plus size myself, most of my art is geared toward helping people like me feel comfortable with themselves and realize that life starts now, not at a size," the 30-year-old illustrator told POPSUGAR of the inspiration behind her artwork. "I've always taken a lot of satisfaction from helping others see the beauty in themselves as they are."
And it looks like she's already helping Disney fans everywhere feel more seen and confident about their bodies. Many of her "Chubby Disney Ladies" posts on Instagram are flooded with comments from followers sharing how the illustrations have inspired them. Below is a sampling of the well-deserved praise:
