When characters speak of their existence, they stand as if beside themselves. Everything has already happened; time has stopped; life becomes reflectively stretched apart.
Reto Sorg, from the Foreword to Robert Walser's Fairy Tales (trans. from the German by Daniele Pantano and James Reidel)

ok so this German town, Lohr am Main, claims that it's the birthplace of the woman who inspired the fairytale of Snow White. (This claim is totally false, the math doesn't add up, I'm working on a blog post series about it.) They have a whole tourist theme based on this.
In like 2013 or 2014, the mayor held a contest for a statue of Snow White to be put up in the town. The judges’ committee picked this as the winner.
Tumblr media
It resembles a young child’s endearingly clumsy drawing, but with a kind of Medusa-esque horror. Tentacles protrude from its head. It has buggy, alien-like eyes and a quirky sideways smile like Junior Asparagus. Its stubby T-rex arms and contorted tiny hands are splayed out in a parody of a welcoming embrace. I think it has decolletage? 
So since he won, the creator was supposed to make a permanent version. He came back with a big permanent metal version and a 100k euro bill for the town. The townspeople (who apparently did not get any say in the contest) were livid. (Comment from @procrastinatorkimberlygrey​: “I FUCKING BET”)
Behold it looming menacingly over the crowd. I like the one woman to the left of the statue who looks like she’s probably crying laughing.
Tumblr media
A student put up graffiti of it. Now it’s a meme. They call it “Horror White.” There are T-shirts.
Tumblr media
I love everything about this. I’m pretty sure the statue has been vandalized at least once.

I’ve watched a lot of once upon a time today and it got my thinking about ever after high in a non modernized fairy tale world. I’m a fan- there’s going to be more. But all my sketches so far haven’t been as good as these.
Also- peep the watermark 👁👄👁

Way back in 2014, 17-year-old me saw the above text post about diverse fairytales and loved it so much I decided to draw them all. Very recently the post picked up some speed, and as proud as I still am of my teen-self for the hard work that went into them, I decided they needed a redo!

Someone somewhere on the internet suggested a telling of Cinderella where Cinderella is a blacksmith and I don't know who it was but the idea will not leave me alone because oh my god
A Cinderella who gets her name because she works in the soot of her forge. A Cinderella who forges her own iron slippers. A Cinderella who - and I cannot emphasize this enough - is yoked as hell
Also this can be the adaptation that makes the Fairy Godmother an antagonist because iron drives off the fair folk. Holy shit I want this so bad
