When you're a kid, fairy-tale princesses are ever young, beautiful, adventurous and positive. You want to be them when you grow up and you pretend to be them.
Unless you're Dina Goldstein who started pondering what might happen to those same princesses if they grew up in our world. Then you get a series like Fallen Princesses.
Snow White's an overwhelmed stay at home mom, Cinderella's still waiting for her prince, Rapunzel..well, that'll break your heart. Ariel's fate made me want to cry.
Look, I'll be honest. They're beautiful pictures and it's a really intriguing idea. But it makes me think the kids have the right of it.
Check out the rest of the pictures after the break. Just nab a few tissues.
