Artist Gives Disney Princesses Disabilities And Disorders To Draw Attention To Disabled Rights

For decades Disney Princesses have been an inseparable part of our lives. Most of us have grown up idolizing and aspiring to be like them. Fans seem to love giving their favorite Disney characters a makeover. There is no doubt that Disney has always been a source of inspiration for artists.

But in this case, they are not the main characters in the story.
