Rings Inspired by Disney Princesses

Beauty And The Beast Ring SR Geek Picks: 10 Guardians of the Galaxy Facts, Minion Superheroes, Louis C.K. Hates Twitter & More

Gemvara is selling these Disney Princess-inspired rings designed by Tumblr-er Heck Yeah Disney Merch. Each piece of finger jewelry reflects a different princess and has a quote engraved on the inside. Admittedly I’m surprised Ariel’s is just a regular-ass ring. Shouldn’t it be made out of some kinda wacky gadget or gizmo like a racecar or a donut? That girl is all kinds of crazy! Using a fork to comb her hair, I mean, who does she think she is? Amanda Bynes? Jk jk, Ariel’s practically sane compared to that nutjob. But Cinderella? Oh Cinderella will give her a run for all her crazy money. Girl be cruising in a damn pumpkin for crazy’s sakes! Doesn’t get much crazier than that.

  1. wonderful geekery…that guardians of the galaxy article is pretty bad. lots of mistakes. Its almost like they made mistakes on purpose.

    • It seems corrections have been made already about GotG…

      • Your right….that improves the article which is now pretty good.

  2. Louis CK always gets me.

    • @Al and he’s 100% right too, geez, I don’t understand people now-a-days. You see them out with friends and all of them are ignoring each other tapping away at their slabs of glass…

      • It’s curious and disturbing: people who have no context to place an experience in until it’s captured safely on a crummy video clip and vomited onto a social network for someone else to make it real.

  3. Hello,

    I would like to say that the minion heroes are improperly credited. Someone stitched together the minions for use on instagram without my permission. I have no problem with you posting my work on this website, but I would appreciate if my work is properly credited. You can find proof on my tumblr where they were originally posted and my website.


    Thank you!

    • Sorry about that, Kevin! It’s been fixed.

  4. If Sam Rockwell had a dance studio, I would totally sign up

  5. Went to see despicable me today ( loved it, the jokes are all there for the adults) and when we got back I ask the boy to draw his fav super heroes as Minions. Totally got the idea from you Kevin, we had a blast nice one mate.
