There are female fictional characters and there are sexy women who can design clothing, where they two groups meet is a magical world called cosplay. It's been around for some time, but it has just started to enter the mainstream consciousness in the last ten years, mostly due to increasing interest in things once considered nerdy like science fiction.
One of the great and underrated joys of reaching adulthood is finally realizing that there are beautiful women everywhere who love to geek out; sci-fi, comics, even anime, are things women are enjoying, and many dudes couldn't be happier. While costumes are impressive and intricate, most of the girls who dress up like their favourite characters will also go out of their way to make sure that their costume shows something off for their male fans, which is more than fine by us.
This isn't news to anyone, cosplay exists and more often than not, the women dressing up look like something out of this world. While Marvel and DC babes such as Black Widow, and Wonder Woman are popular choices, along with anime and video game characters, some great work has been done cosplaying as the women of Disney. We almost all grew up on those movies, and obviously the cartoon women are drawn to be beautiful, so these stunning ladies of the world of cosplay got to work to bring these characters to life. Here are fifteen Disney cosplays that are ridiculously, painfully, distractingly hot.
Note that some of the cosplays we used are not specifically Disney princesses, but other female Disney characters. This shouldn't upset you: if you clicked on this already, just get ready to enjoy some beautiful women.
15 Belle - Anna-Sofia Toivonen
One of the all-time Disney classics is Beauty and the Beast, in which a beautiful, and misunderstood bookworm, Belle, becomes a prisoner to a disfigured sociopath in a castle, only to later fall in love with him, finding out he is actually a tortured soul, and the victim of a curse. It's a poor plot, and may relay the idea to young viewers that that it's okay to stay with a someone who mistreats you if they're a nice person deep down (bad lesson no matter who you are).
But enough of our commentary on this well executed bad story. Finnish model and cosplayer Anna-Sofia Toivonen looks absolutely beautiful as Belle and while we'd like to see more skin, there was no scene in which Beast forced her to clean his castle in a French maid outfit so the ball gown may be the best we can get.
14 Minnie Mouse - Ivy Tenebrae
Yes, we know she's not a technically a Disney "princess", but we don't care and looking like she does here, you shouldn't be too concerned about who does and doesn't get the "princes designation from Disney. At some point, Ivy Tenebrae (we're not sure if that's her real name) figured out that she is gorgeous, talented, and outgoing, and decided to try to make a living make a living combining these attributes.
She's a YouTuber who does makeup tutorials, a model, and of course, a very avid cosplayer. She took some significant liberties with her Minnie Mouse costume, but we really aren't complaining.
13 Anna and Elsa - Anna and Lexi Faith
Why list these two so high? Well they are among the most well known and we don't want you to get down to number one and realize you've been ogling the girls for years already. In the same breath however, we didn't want to leave them off the list altogether. A few years ago, Floridian model Anna Faith Carlson was discovered when people noticed she looked almost identical to Elsa from Frozen. This was her start in cosplay and she got her sister into it too. The two became famous for portraying Elsa and Anna, but have since branched out and dressed as other characters. Anna Faith as Harley Quinn is some kind of awesome.
12 Alice - MolecularAgatha
Of all the women of the Disney cartoon films, Alice is probably the most deserving of a punk rock edge. After all, it has been highly speculated that Lewis Carroll wrote the original book back in 1865, while consistently under the influence of laudanum, a powerful narcotic in the opium family. Similarly, the resulting book (and movies), with their absurd characters, scenery and events, seems like it is meant to imitate a session of hard drug use.
MolecularAgatha's cosplay is beautiful and reflects the innocence of the character at first glance, but between the dark eye makeup, black fingernails, and of course the choker, makes it clear that the character has a dark side. MolecularAgatha (Marianela Fajardo) made this costume way back in 2010, but has continued to cosplay since; to great effect. Her anime characters look awesome, including the girls of Sailor Moon, and Pokemon's Misty.
11 Peasant Cinderella - Ginny Di
Why not Cinderella in her ball gown, you might ask? Well, that gown wasn't hot even by a long shot and there is something sexy about a woman getting sweaty working and cleaning. Ginny Di is a multi-talented girl who not only looks fantastic (come on, who wouldn't save that from an evil step mother and those step sisters?), but also makes most of her own costumes, sings, and has a YouTube channel devoted to showing off her many talents. We won't lie, we'd take this Cinderella home regardless of whether her foot matched the shoe.
10 Tinkerbell - SvetaFrost
There is some discussion as to whether Tinker Bell is technically a Disney princess, but for our purposes we can't even begin to tell you how little we care about issues like that. That magical pixie from Peter Pan is one of the best Disney characters for cosplay and we only need pictures like this to explain why. The "small dress with wings on a tiny, cute girl" gimmick is something that will never get old.
Another young woman of many talents, Sveta Frost is a Russian YouTuber, artist, photographer and cosplayer. We haven't checked out her YouTube channel, photos or any of the other stuff, but her cosplay chops are something special.
9 Snow White - OriginalRikku
Living with seven short dudes in the woods? Yeah, you know Snow White is into some cool stuff. But regardless of the character herself, Original Rikku is a French cosplayer who has been making her own costumes and dropping jaws since 2010. She has become less active since then, and hasn't done much in 2016 (or yet in 2017) but that's what memories are for.
While the real Snow White seems completely innocent and naive, the one we've found here looks incredible. Between the eyes and sweater-meat, there isn't much that could make this cosplay babe any hotter...except for maybe...losing the costume.
8 Esmeralda - Yrrebsa
She's by no means one of the best of the Disney ladies out there, and most definitely wasn't in one of the most memorable movies, but The Hunchback of Notre Dame does include a lady who is ripe for sexy cosplay gold. Esmeralda the Romani (apparently the word "Gypsy" is now a no-go), dresses like what we imagine a sexy woman in Paris would have done hundreds of years ago and dances for a living.
We don't know much about the girl in the picture, but Yrrebsa is primarily an artist who has dabbled in cosplay in the past. Her Esmeralda costume and photos were taken back in 2013. While not the most popular Disney lady, this Esmeralda cosplay is awesome, Quasimodo was one lucky dude.
7 Merida - Paula Vasquez
The star of 2012's Brave, the real princess Merida is one of the weirdest looking Disney princesses, and looks like an animated version of what we imagine Carrot Top's daughter would look like. Of course, the world of cosplay has managed to make this otherwise awkward-looking character hot. Weird how that happens...
Argentinian cosplayer Paula Vasquez beautifully brings this character to life, with her awesome eyes, long, curly, red hair and clear confidence with a bow in her hand. But this is one of those pictures that makes us realize, there is something about redheads.
6 Jasmine - Kim Kardashian
Yes, we'll admit it, Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family (with the notable exception of Caitlyn, who's an accomplished athlete) are famous for having no talent but being hot, shallow and spoiled. I'd rather not have her anywhere near my articles because if we keep paying attention these people will not go away, but her Jasmine costume is too hot not to put on here. I guess this is one of those times we can say sorry, not sorry.
We'd let her take us on a magic carpet ride any day, but on a related topic, if you ever need proof her breasts are fake, look no further. The costume is hot, but natural tatas do not look like that in a push-up bra.
5 Ariel - Sarah Ingle
If you like tiny girls with red hair and fish tails, The Little Mermaid may well be the greatest thing in your life, you weird perv. But if you're into tiny girls with red hair, unbelievable eyes and a fish tail costume, you're probably a pretty normal dude and we'd like to introduce you to Sarah Ingle. She's from Colorado and has spent over $10,000 on her costumes. We'll admit, hey do look pretty great. She takes three hours to turn into a princess and has made a business out of it, charging over $100 per hour to appear at children's events. And here we are wondering what she charges for adult events...
4 Pocahontas - Emma (Carma Cosplay)
They haven't made as much of a splash in the cosplay world as some of the others on our list, but Carma Cosplay is a team of two friends who love to dress up like fictional characters. Emma and Carly (hence Carma, it's their names)have dressed up like Star Wars characters, Lord of the Rings, you name it. But we always thought there was something awesome about Pocahontas and this is cultural appropriation at its best. Not just any woman can look this stunning covered in mud, kneeling next to a river with a wolf.
Paint with all the colors of the wind? Nope, we don't think so, there will be no painting, just drool and a gratuitous stare.
3 Rapunzel - Shproton
Shproton also goes by the name of Daria Kulikova. She hails from Russia and we've long suspected that they put something in the water over there to make women as hot as this. She's a cosplayer, but also works as an artist and does normal modelling work. While we didn't include a full shot of her body, rest assured it is a wonder to behold, but we decided to focus on the face because she is just so absurdly good looking how can we focus on anything else? Really though, this looks like something from a really great dream.
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair" may be the annoying chant in the movie, but we're thinking "let down your dress" is more fitting for this one.
2 Aurora - Megan McMinn
While some Disney movies have great morals for kids, such as be good to your friends, don't be afraid to grow up, don't let your past drag you down, learn from it (Toy Story, Peter Pan, and The Lion King respectively, by the way), Sleeping Beauty has a potentially terrible lesson for young boys: if you see a woman asleep, give her a kiss, because why not. For the record: terrible advice. Call someone who knows CPR.
But we digress; model, writer, and overall gorgeous woman Megan McMinn (disneysdarlingrose on Instagram) is a great cosplayer with a beautiful body and as you can see, an enchanting smile. We didn't include much of the body because the dress doesn't show much of it off, but if you can't tell that the rest of her is stunning, it may be time for glasses.
1 Battle Armor Elsa - Jessica Nigri
If we didn't include Jessica Nigri in this, we'd be doing an injustice to her and the cosplay world. Obviously naming the greatest in the game for cosplay is up to one's own taste and preference, but Jessica is like the Aaron Rodgers of cosplay. Not a football fan? Okay, fine, she's the Floyd Mayweather of the cosplay universe, except for everything bad about Floyd (he can't read and beats women).
For the record, we can't remember when in Frozen Elsa puts on a suit of armor but we also don't care because this is a great look. Jessica Nigri's beauty is rivaled only by her skill at putting these costumes together. She's done just about every hot character you can think of and this take on Elsa is just the tip of the iceberg. Pun intended.
