This has been posted on tumblr a few times already, but the artist has finished the set and I thought I’d post the complete gallery, because I am so in love with this concept and get so excited when people combine history with art. (I’ve inserted the locations and dates Shoomlah narrowed for each princess just for funsies.)

Historically Accurate Disney Princesses! by Shoomlah

and because I didn’t have room to include her, here’s Cinderella.

lol the woc (except mulan) are wearin not a damn thing compared to the euro princesses. Jasmine straiten your back shawty!! I doubt Ariel was English 0.o

Historically accurate to whom? “Chinese empire” for 300s AD? Wut? 

There was no Chinese empire at that time. It is one of the periods of disunity in Chinese history. Between the Han (220) and Sui (589) Dynasties. There were smaller Dynasties/Kingdoms at war during this time but no ‘Chinese Dynasty’ as if that were even a real thing or meaningful, or a place unlike all the other ones. 

Not to mention, it’s not historically accurate for Rapunzel to have that floating lantern, which was ganked from various Asian regions. 

Ooof, please note that these captions are in no way approved my me, the artist- the OP cropped out my watermark and added some completelyarbitrary dates and locations.

I’m happy to own up when I’ve fucked up of my own volition, but damn if I’m gonna sit back when someone captions Mulan with “Chinese Empire, 380 AD.”  WHAT NONONONO

this is the video that inspired me to do it again. she just makes the wraps looks sooo good!! :) i used 4 strings to do the actual wrapping instead of one like the first video suggests. Using 4 strings makes the wrap poof out more and is almost less precise but it just depends on how you wrap it. 

Now also you get a glimpse of how ambrosia burns her ends. i have no earthly idea how she did that witchcraft. i had to look up another video do find a way to burn the ends better.

A tutorial about how to seal the ends an be found here.

Dreads by Francesco Mastalia and Alfonse Pagano

Dreadlocks are a modern phenomenon with roots reaching as far back as the fifth century. According to ancient Hindu beliefs, dreads signified a singleminded pursuit of the spiritual. Devotion to God displaced vanity, and hair was left to its own devices.

Dreads captures this organic explosion of hair in all its beautiful, subversive glory. One hundred duotone portraits present dread-heads from around the world, in all walks of life. Interviewed on location by the photographers, jatta-wearers wax philosophic about the integrity of their hair, and every stunning image confirms their choice. Alice Walker puts words to pictures, offering lyrical ruminations about her decision to let her own mane mat.

Commentary.

In February, I posted two pieces in Bed-Stuy on Tompkins and Halsey. These two pieces got the most attention of any pieces I’ve put up so far. Within a few days, someone had written his response to the work directly onto the posters. From there, a woman wrote a response to him. And it went on and, on with different hand-written comments creating this kind of interesting discussion. The pieces remained up until a week or so ago, when the phallic image was drawn. That’s when I decided to try to take them down. 

The “Stop Telling Women to Smile” piece remained in tact enough for me to include it in the exhibition. I thought it was important to present in the show, so that people could view these written reactions.
