mash-up

disney hogwarts 1

Though I like Harry, Ron, and Hermione plenty, seeing Disney characters in Hogwarts school uniforms makes me feel giddy. Disney has its own kind of magic and combining it with the world of Harry Potter means sparks! DeviantArt user Eira1893 came up with this crossover and created illustrations featuring over 20 characters in the school setting.

My favorite part, other than seeing the cute couples, is noting which house the artist sorted the characters into. Anna and Kristoff from Frozen are both in Hufflepuff while Ariel and Prince Eric are in Gryffindor. She goes into detail about her process for choosing the houses on some of the pieces at DeviantArt.

sesame street fighter

You never know where mash-up art will lead. DeviantArt user gavacho13 created an illustration pairing Sesame Street with Street Fighter, and now it’s a playable game. Thanks, internet! Game developer Cocoalasca took the idea and ran with it and recently made Sesame Street Fighter available.

The HTML5 game pits character combinations against each other. For example, Bert and Ryu are merged into one creature. You fight by being the first to type in a series of words. The concept is laugh out loud funny to me, and the game is kind of addictive.

Now, go forth and play Sesame Street Fighter!

These mash-ups of Star Wars action figures with historical/pop-culture characters are the work of artist Michael Leavitt. He’s taken the bodies of traditional Star Wars action figures and given them the heads of people like Abraham Lincoln, Einstein and Ghandi. Each is a one-of-a-kind wooden sculpture that is currently on display at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.

This Adventure Time artwork was created by Larry Quach and isn’t necessarily intended to be a Pacific Rim mash up, but you can’t help but see that given the movie’s popularity. He set out to make just a mecha version of the show, but these guys would look perfect fighting Kaiju.

It’s really not all that surprising that little Stewie makes the perfect Joffrey in these Game of Thrones/Family Guy mash-ups. They’re the work of redditor Eric LaSorda who’s taken Stewie, Meg and the whole gang and set them down in the middle of Westeros. If you haven’t seen season three, be warned, the last image in the series is a bit of a spoiler!

This is one of the most beautiful Disney princess mash-ups that I’ve seen, in large part because each image is so complete. DeviantArtist racookie3 has given each princess a bending or fighting style from Avatar: The Last Airbender. The princesses look amazing, but check out the backgrounds and you’ll see how other characters from their movies have been incorporated into the scene. I love Jasmine’s pet tiger Rajah and the fairies with Sleeping Beauty.

Pacific Rim was not a Godzilla movie, but it is in this fan-made trailer. It’s a recut with dialogue and sound effects from old-school Godzilla movies and even Japanese characters on the screen. I have to admit, I’d pay to see this version in theaters, too.

link adventure time

What if Link abandoned Legend of Zelda and hopped around different television shows? Hey, listen! He’s got to get tired of that stupid fairy at some point.

Redditor TanBurn has altered the hero’s style to match different television environments so you can easily imagine what Link would look like if he appeared in Adventure Time, Smurfs, Powerpuff Girls, and more. It’s a cool exercise, and I’d love to see some of these mash-ups actually happen. Like Link in The Simpsons? Someone please make that an actual thing.

Check out more versions of Link after the break.

Here’s an action figure mash-up that you’re immediately going to want to buy, but you’re out of luck. The designs are the work of Sillof’s Workshop who made them as a special commission for Patton Oswalt. He’s already given the Star Wars characters 1940′s and steampunk makeovers, but this time it’s Road Warrior. Each is incredibly detailed and expertly melds the two very separate universes into one.
