Halloween is upon us and we鈥檙e finalizing聽our costumes and putting the finishing touches on our pumpkin carvings. We all know that Halloween is all about the scary and as kids, nothing scared us quite as much as Disney villains. Raise your hand if you鈥檝e ever cowered in fear when you watched that scene where Ursula battles King Triton in The Little Mermaid. Just in time for Halloween, Disney has found a brand new way to give us nightmares by commissioning Melbourne-based visual artist Jirka V盲盲t盲inen (you know, the artist who created the amazing real-life Disney girls) to bring Disney villains to life. Creepy.


These illustrations are so frighteningly realistic that we can practically hear Maleficent screaming her classic line, 鈥淵ou poor, simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me. Me! The mistress of all evil!鈥 Jirka perfectly captured everything from Ursula鈥檚 evil grin to Captain Hook鈥檚 arched brows to the dead look in the Evil Queen鈥檚 eyes. He also created a sinister image of Hades from Hercules with his fingers together plotting an evil plan, as well as Gaston with bulging muscles and of course ample chest hair. Check out the rest of the images below.


*Shudder* We can鈥檛 wait to see what other villains are going to get the IRL treatment. May we suggest Jafar, Cruella de Vil or the Queen of Hearts?
