Halloween might be over, but for those of us who truly love the macabre it's always the season for something spooky. As a child, Disney meant nothing but smiles, songs, and anthropomorphic animals. As an adult, it means turning some of the characters that make us feel the most safe and vulnerable into something terrifying.
The following artists each took inspiration from Disney and turned their classic characters into something to be feared. Check out their awesome work below:
1. Mickey Mouse
Okay, well I definitely don't want to go to Disneyland anymore.
2. Minnie Mouse
That bow is nightmare inducing.
3. Donald Duck
Why can't I stop looking at it?
4. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Deformity
How do ya' do and shake hands, shake hands, shake hands. How do ya' do and shake hands and state your name and business. That's manners.
5. Winnie the Pooh and Piglett Too
He doesn't look like any kind of dog I've ever seen.
7. Toy Gory
These toys aren't just coming to life. They're coming back to life.
8. Buzz Lightyear
Those with Trypophobia beware of this artist's work.
Do you think that's Boo's blood?
10. Mike Wazowski
And Mike was always worried he wouldn't be considered scary.
11. Elsa and Anna
Um, no. Not particularly in the mood to build snowmen with people who have murderous grins plastered onto their faces.
12. Tinker Bell
I don't believe in fairies! I don't! I don't!
13. Sadness and Fear
Is this what the emotions of a zombie look like?
14. Bing Bong
Who's your friend who likes to play?
Bing Bong, Bing Bong
In this alternate universe, Beast did quite a number on Belle once she tried to steal his rose.
Those glowing eyes will haunt my nightmares.
Tiana takes a turn for her friends on the other side.
18. Megara and Hercules
Herc, you were supposed to be a hero!
Now he can finally seek revenge on the hunter that murdered his mother.
20. Cruella de Vil
This is the face of a woman who wants to turn adorable Dalmatian puppies into a fashionable winter coat.
I'm not entirely sure life is actually better down where it's wetter.
I didn't realize Genies had bones.
23. Mickey Mouse
Nothing quite like a creepy black and white Mikey Mouse to really seal the deal.
