Almister12’s Pictures, Revisited

So I went on DeviantArt just a few days back, trying to search for that Disney Princess Go to Hogwarts picture by the user almister12, but it was nowhere, so I searched for almister12, and their account was still there, and I tried to look at that same picture everywhere in their gallery, but it wasn’t there, so I just figured out that it got deleted. And that’s what it used to look like:

And they sorted the princesses like:

Jasmine-Gryffindor

Snow White-Hufflepuff

Mulan-Slytherin

Aurora-Hufflepuff

Cinderella-Slytherin

Pocahontas-Hufflepuff

Tiana-Gryffindor

Belle-Ravenclaw

Ariel-Slytherin

Rapunzel-Gryffindor

But remember, it was just the way they sorted the princesses. Everyone has different ways of sorting the characters, especially the princesses.

But then they also did a doll-maker version of those princesses:

Plus Megara the Slytherin, Kida in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw Jane, and Esmeralda sorted into Slytherin, again.

And their male counterparts, the princes:

That meant:

Hercules-Hufflepuff

Milo-Ravenclaw

Aladdin-Slytherin

Snow White’s Prince-Gryffindor

Shang-Gryffindor

Prince Phillip-Gryffindor

Cinderella’s Prince Charming-Hufflepuff

John Smith-Ravenclaw

Prince Naveen-Slytherin

Beast-Slytherin

Prince Eric-Gryffindor

Flynn Rider-Slytherin

Tarzan-Ravenclaw

Phoebus-Gryffindor

And there was an individual image of Tiana in her outfit of the Slytherin color scheme.

But not only did almister12 do those Disney characters at Hogwarts, they also did the princesses in pink and green clothes:

And besides the princesses, they even painted a page of a scene from the movie Up.

And apart from Disney, the gallery also used to have Chuckie from Rugrats,

the Despicable Me minions,

and Precious Moments.

Almister12 had been an under-appreciated, yet versatile artist who had mostly done pictures on cartoon characters. Had they still been active and alive now and their pictures still in their gallery, I would have asked where in Hogwarts they would sort Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Alice, Merida, Anna, Elsa, Moana, Kristoff, Hans, the villains, the side characters, and the whole shebang of Disney characters. They would have had way more pictures by now if they had been still active and if they hadn’t deleted their existing pictures.

So those are the recipes of the book, but some recipes I feel are missing, like Alice’s Eat Me cookies and Yzma’s potion, but still, it’s a pretty cool cookbook, and we have our own sets of recipes. These recipes look so appealing to me that I feel as if I were in a fancy restaurant. They are so inspiring that I even plan to think of doing my own Disney menu!

Almister12’s Disney Hogwarts Series

Presenting the Disney Hogwarts series by almister12 on DeviantArt:

But that’s all for the series. Almister12 was such a three-picture wonder in the world of sorting the Disney characters into Hogwarts houses. You can view their account here: https://almister12.deviantart.com/

How I Met Nakeisha

A brief story on one of my idols…

It was my senior year at high school, and the week before winter break, when no one was looking at me, I was looking at pictures of Disney princesses placed into Hogwarts houses. Then I saw this picture:


Then I was trying to find out the other houses, so I came across this page.

And the other houses were:


And then I talked to Nakeisha Campbell, the author of that article, on Tumblr about whether she would sort other Disney characters.

When I searched for her account on Instagram, I saw that she was a bookworm and a foodie.

Then she someday sorted the Descendants and High School Musical characters.

How I Met Bluecloudcandy

One of the people on DeviantArt I admire…

It was freshman year, and I was looking at images of My Little Ponies mashed up with Disney princesses, and I found this picture:

disney_princesses_colored_as_mlp_fim_by_bluecloudcandy-d52js7x

Then when I clicked to see the page, it was in DeviantArt, and it was published by bluecloudcandy, who loved MLP, Disney, Winx Club, and Monster High, and here are her other mashups:

 

Then in sophomore and junior years, bluecloudcandy was more interested in drawing portraits, like Benedict Cumberbatch, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and herself.

 

That inspired me to do portraits of Indian celebrities, like Dharmendra, Asha Parekh, and Daler Mehndi.

 


And in my senior year, I faced so much stress that I made this poster
img_0873

with some inspiration from her elaborate doodle, as well as the Middle School books.


So bluecloudcandy is a very inspiring artist that I like to draw in her styles as well. People, like my family and friends, look at my pictures, and I look at bluecloudcandy’s pictures. That’s how we get inspired, from generation to generation.

In Memory of a Beloved Blogger…

Missing one of my friends from “golden” era

A long time ago, it was my sophomore year, and I used to love Harry Potter and Disney so much. I saw a tumblr blog that sorted Disney characters into Hogwarts houses. Its name was The Mouse’s Sorting Hat, and its founder went by sortingdisney, and here’s how its icon looks like:

sortingdisney-icon

That’s right. Mickey Mouse wearing the Sorting Hat, right?

And here are some of its posts:

The Gryffindors:(Red frames)

 

 

 

The Slytherins:(Green frames)

 

 

 

The Ravenclaws:(“Blue” frames; the frames don’t look “blue” at all to me, they look more whitish-grayish…)

 

 

 

And last but not least, the Hufflepuffs:(Yellow frames)

 

 

 

Sortingdisney had been very active and prolific during that golden era, but had gone downhill by the dark days of senior year, that it was not making any more posts that year. It was then on the verge of deletion. I, too, had a lot of schoolwork to do then, even more than sophomore year, and I even had a test to take over the following summer, unlike other summers. After the test, I checked sortingdisney, but it was gone and deactivated. I was saddened, so I decided to print its sortings and put them in my memory box. Plus, I made a video of their posts:

 

May sortingdisney’s soul dwell in our hearts forever! RIP!
