Disney merchandise has a reputation for being a hit with its fan base.

In some cases, guests show up in droves to get their hands on a new release or limited edition, like those who lined Main Street, USA at Disney World to buy exclusive Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party event merchandise.

In others, consumers take to social media to question the style choices of Disney designers, such as those who were left underwhelmed and confused by the new Haunted Mansion line that recently debuted at the Parks.

A fan used the popular TikTok trend “what I wanted and what I got” to reveal a Disney merch fail that resulted in 20k new followers overnight. User @whattheygot showed off a horrifying line of face masks in a series of videos that fans have to see to believe.

The products are designed to turn shoppers into popular Disney characters wearing a leaf mask. Below are the videos they have uploaded so far.

The Thumper Face Mask was the first in the video series. Derived from Disney bambi (1942), the mask leaves the wearer looking more like a circus clown and less like a friend of the woods.

“I didn’t expect that,” commented user Sara. User Nisa wrote: “I can’t deal with it 😂 who makes these masks 😂”

Next up was the Cruella face mask, meant to transform users into Cruella de Vil, the villain from the classic Disney film. 101 Dalmatians (1961). The poster described this option as simply “cruel”.

“My therapist will hear about you,” wrote commenter @followforfollow.

The Stitch Face Mask was possibly the most successful of the mask line, although according to the Lilo and Stitch (2002) official description of the film, he is “a fugitive genetic experiment from a distant planet”, so the resemblance may not be saying much.

“Noo don’t sew!” wrote user Eva.

You’d think the Aurora face mask would be a marked improvement, turning fans into the Disney princess. Sleeping Beauty (1959). One would be wrong.

“I’m crying,” wrote user @f9.xx2. In Ariel’s words (probably), we want to be where the masks are not.

The original poster shared that these masks can be purchased from Amazon, Primark, and several major retailers.
