Ever since watching The Little Mermaid as I kid I've dreamt about how awesome it would be to just head into the water and become a mermaid. I would escape the troubles of my boring, human life and just swim with the fishes all day. I'll never understand why Ariel wanted to leave all of that just for a boy.

In recent months I've become a huge fan of the Tumblr user and awesome animator, TheNamelessDoll. Not only did she give us a look at what the Disney Princesses would look like with more realistic features, but this time she's created a set of the animated Disney women as mermaids. Essentially mashing up my childhood dreams with some of my favorite Disney movies.

Check out TheNamelessDoll's beautiful manipulated works below:

Aurora, Sleeping Beauty

Instead of dragons, all Aurora would have to look out for is Sea Witches, arguably a much better deal.

Snow White, Snow White

Snow White looks gorgeous with long mermaid hair and a pearl white tail. Also, there's no poisoned apples under water!

Cinderella, Cinderella

At least she doesn't have to worry about losing a shoe now.

Belle, Beauty and the Beast

This animation and shadow work is stunning! My only issue is that I don't understand how Belle is reading a book underwater.

Tiana, The Princess and the Frog

Mermaid Tiana can hardly sleep when she's thinking about her frog love stuck on land.

Jasmine, Aladdin

I would definitely let Jasmine show me her underwater world. Are magic carpets waterproof?

Mulan, Mulan

I would absolutely watch a new Mulan movie where she becomes a mermaid and has to protect the whole ocean.

Megara, Hercules

Megara would never worry about changing herself to please Prince Eric, but that doesn't mean she wouldn't be down to walk on land for a bit to cause some trouble.

Pocahontas, Pocahontas

Even from the ocean Pocahontas clearly has no trouble painting with all of the colors of the wind.

Kida, Atlantis

Kida would do well as a deep water dweller with her bioluminescent tail.

Nita, Brother Bear 2

Definitely from a lesser-known Disney movie, but Nita used to suffer from aquaphobia. Becoming a mermaid would have helped her overcome her fears much quicker.

Jane, Tarzan

Would this mean that underwater Jane has an underwater Tarzan who was raised in a totally different body of water? Again, a movie I would totally see.

Nani and Lilo, Lilo & Stitch

Living deep in the Pacific Ocean off the shore of Hawaii, Lilo would have to learn to play Elvis songs on the piano instead of with a record player.

Giselle, Enchanted

Leave it to Giselle to be the only mermaid stuck in a well.

I don't know about you, but I would pay a lot of money to see a movie where these Disney women turned into mermaids. Heck, I'd even settle for a Disney short! How do we make this thing happen?

Once again, huge thanks to TheNamelessDoll for all of her incredible work!
