What are some of the common traits of the Disney princesses? They’re young, they’re beautiful, they’re always singing, and quite a handful of their stories revolve around the men they fall in love with. What if, for a change, they weren’t twirling around on the dance floor in poofy gowns but donning armor, wielding weapons and fighting on a battlefield? They would still be young and beautiful, but they would probably look a lot cooler! See them after the jump!

Similar to fan art, one of the fabulous things about cosplay is expanding the possibilities of existing characters. A group of cosplayers in Canada came together as Disney princesses, but did away with their signature outfits and put on their battle gear instead. Here are the princesses in sassy images we’ve never seen before!
