One day, graphic designer Karen Graw had a thought: "What would Disney characters look like if I saw their ID photos — just like any other person in line for groceries?" From there, an art project was born.
By using reference images of noses, eyes, and other facial features of celebrities, friends, and strangers, Graw used photo manipulation software programs to create composites of characters from classic animated movies. “I wanted it to be as close as possible to some real person on the street,” 27-year-old Graw, who's based in Israel, tells Yahoo Shine. Thanks to her creations, it’s officially easier to imagine what Jasmine and Aladdin would like in the flesh, shopping for spices at the local souk, or Cruella walking 101 Dalmatians, Mulan at kickboxing class, or Tarzan and Jane strolling in the concrete jungle. Graw has actually already been lucky enough to see people who look like her art in real life. "I think I might have seen Ursula on a bus, dressed up like a grandma, and Jafar at a car garage," she says.
I guess some dreams really do come true.
Check out the composite above to see the 32 classic Disney characters Graw turned into regular old people:
Row 1: Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Mother Gothel, Tiana, Charlotte LaBouff, Esmeralda, Frollo, Quasimodo
Row 2: Giselle, Jane, Tarzan, Cinderella, Belle, Prince Adam (The Beast), Gaston, Jafar
Row 3: Mulan, Alice, Jasmine, Aladdin, Aurora, Prince Philip, Maleficent, Cruella De Vil
