Real Life Disney Characters?

Earlier I literally stumbled upon these images of Disney princesses (and one villian) portrayed pretty realistically by real people. I love them because they are perfect combination of the animated world and real life. I'm sure that creating these pictures didn't come without a lot of effort however because these girls are not only dressed and posed in a way that really captures the personalities, but they also have a lot of (and in some cases all) the physical attributes that the creators of each movie envisioned for the particular characters.

Below are my three favorites:
Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

 Megara (or Meg) from Hercules

Ursula from The Little Mermaid
This is the blog of the creator, Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen, a Finnish design enthusiast studying graphic design at the Arts College at Bournemouth. In order to create these ten pictures, Jirka uses extreme amounts of photo manipulation detailed here.
Below is an example of how he takes pieces of different photos and puts them together to make a separate photo using each different piece.

I think this is a very unique and refreshing take on photography and these types of skills/components can definitely be applied to visual effects in movies to either replicate an image or create a brand new one for the best looking characters possible.
