Let's be honest here--the best thing about Disney animated musicals, besides the actual music, is usually the villains. No one does stylish, over-the-top villainy quite like the House of Mouse. If I were a betting man, I'd say that Ursula, Cruella de Vil, Scar, and all the rest are way more popular than the protagonists from their respective films. There's a reason that Disney put the entire focus of its live-action remake of Sleeping Beauty on Maleficent--she was always the best part.
Now we've learned, thanks to the folks over at The Laughing Squid, about a makeup artist and cartoon designer from Paris, France by the name of Audrey Logeais, who is using her remarkable talents to transform people into some of the greatest bad guys from the Disney oeuvre, in tribute to film's greatest assortment of villainy ever.
Among her amazing transformations are Scar from The Lion King, Jafar from Aladdin, Hades from Hercules, and Bellwether from Zootopia, among several others. And yes, even Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens is in there. Star Wars is part of Disney now after all.
You can check out several examples of her Disney villain transformations down below:
