Blow Your Top Ursula bag

Comment: OK, I know Disney put in a couple of extra suckers so they could claim that was all this was, but, especially with the other cleavage-creating tentacle in the middle, can anyone seriously doubt that these are Ursula's nipples?

Is that even an officially licensed Disney product? It looks more like fan art to me. And even if it is legit, I think that the person is misreading the image - to me, it seems as if it's supposed to be the character with her arms folded in front of her, looking over her left shoulder, viewed in profile from the left side. (I've heard of naughty tentacles, but this is ridiculous.)

This HuffPo article shows the original Disney Ursula character and the slimmed-down version used for a collection of Disney Villainess figurines. The image on the bag matches neither. ETA: Her hair's not even the right color.

Yep, it's from the new Disney Villains beauty accessories line exclusive to Walgreens.

The photo posted at the start of the thread is pretty washed out, when you look at the actual design it's pretty clear that the left 'nipple' isn't even in front of her torso.

Want. But there is no Walgreens here, boo! I don't need the false eyelashes, but the bags and nail art would bring joy to my Disney addicted self. The Maleficent and the apple motif looks very well done.


Oh... as to the topic (sorry!), I see no nipples, only tentacle suckers.


ETA: The Walgreens website does not show these products. Also, the nearest store to me is about 30 miles away. Again, boo. Not that I, a woman of over 50 years really needs Ursula hair bands, Cruella DeVille nail art, or a Maleficent makeup bag. *pouts* Being a grown up can suck.

You can have one of ours. Those things spring up like mushrooms around here.

And I see tentacle suckers, too.

Alas, I'm a poor unfortunate soul who sees nipples.

Shouldn't there be more suckers?

(I'm actually seeing a transgendered Syndrome, but I'm weird like that)

I see nipples, too.

I went to Walgreens yesterday but saw none of the products in that blog. They did have some other really cool Halloween makeup, though.

It's kinda weird for a placement/number of suckers I think.

I haven't seen that at the Walgreens here but I wasn't looking. I did see some neat Nightmare Before Xmas stuff, I guess it's an anniversary again.

I saw the bag in person at a local Walgreen's - I was reading it right. She's facing to the left side of the bag, looking over her own left shoulder, with her arms folded in front of her, and you're seeing her elbows on the left. (There's an arm and hand that fade into the background in such a way that it's pretty much impossible to see in the digital picture. Yes, weird placement on the sparse suckers, but sometimes a tentacle is just a tentacle. (I believe that the dark curve on the left under her arms is meant to be the underside of her bustline.)

Couldn't it be the case that the artist who created this particular image intentionally made it ambiguous?

Like this:


I imagine it's a lot clearer on the real thing if you can separate her colour from the white behind her more easily.
