For my entire life, I have always sided with “the good guys.” Yup, Disney taught me well because there was never a time where I rooted for the people who would make it onto Santa’s naughty list. Well, thanks to Japanese designer Ruby Spark, we may all be joining the dark side if that means getting our hands on these gorgeous perfume bottles.
Spark first put up her designs on Pixiv, a Japanese online community for artists. It wasn’t long before the perfume bottles picked up attention and had everyone begging Disney to make these designs a reality.
“There’s something special about each and every Disney villain. When I look at them, they have a sort of mysterious sexiness you’d never get from the princesses.” Spark explains. “Perfumes aren’t always soft and floral. Some of them have a tempting character, something that feels almost a little dangerous even. I thought it’d be wonderful to combine perfumes like that with the motif of Disney villains.”
Disney Princesses have definitely gained loads of popularity over the years and have inspired countless artists such as this artist who felt compelled to re-imagine the girls with different ethnicities and this company who created Indian bridal wear inspired by Disney Princesses. Well it may be time for the pure-hearted Princesses to step aside for these Disney villains.
Maybe, if we all plead hard enough, Disney will take notice of these perfume bottles and let them hit the shelves. Until then, they’re still incredible to look at.
