Final Project Resources

Here’s some information on some of the different variations of fairytales & mythologies I found and collected over the years, enjoy 😀

Character Variations List – Fairytales, collection of variations of well-known fairytale characters from different forms of media, it’s in alphabet order with the name of the content from where they’re from in parentheses

RWBY web series by Rooster Teeth – fairytale & mythology characters put into a animesque world full of action and fighting, main cast follows the character variations of Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Beauty/Beast (one character), and Goldilocks

Official site:


The Lunar Chronicles book series – Fairytales set in a dystopian future, there’s a lot of fanart


Ever After High – a doll franchise (canceled) with its own web series focused on the children of the famous fairytale characters

Character list:

Official Youtube where you can follow the adventures of some of the characters, there’s a story arc and playlists you can watch, warning they may be out of order


Disney Crossovers Pinterest board – my Pinterest board of various art from people who added story/character twists to the Disney characters, many of them being putting them in different genres and fandoms, there’s also genderbends


Character Variations – Mythology & Legends, collection of character variations of well-known gods & heroes from legends and myth, in alphabet order with name of the content from where they’re from in parentheses

Monster High – a doll franchise (canceled) with it’s own web series focused on the children of famous monsters and mythical creatures of legend.
