Six Magical Creatures That Look Like Taylor Swift

The Grammy Awards are this Sunday, readers, and as I looked over the list of nominees, it hit me: Taylor Swift looks a lot like a gelfling. But it turns out that pop's perky princess has more than one twin in the fantasy world. I've found six.

6. Pan from Pan's Labyrinth

I think it's something in the eyes. Swift is much more comely than the sinister and mysterious goat man, but they both share...a certain squintiness at times:


I think it comes from having thick lashes and/or being a nature spirit.

5. The Blood Elf from World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade

Maybe the curly hair is just a way to hide her pointed, Horde-loving ears.


But if Swift weren't so sweet and sugary and sparkle-shimmer innocent, she could throw some mean looks with those arched eyebrows before she kills your worgen shaman or whatever.

4. Gelfling

It was the inspiration for this list, and the comparison becomes even clearer when you see Swift with almost the exact same haircut:


Watch out for the skeksis! I say this because there is a five-to-one chance that Lady Gaga will be dressed as one for the Grammy Awards.

3. Samantha from Bewitched

I know that while she has magic powers she still looks like any old human, but I'm writing this list and I say she counts.


This is probably one of the comparisons Swift herself would be more pleased with, unless she has a thing for Jim Henson puppets. I won't judge you, Taylor.

2. Arista, Ariel's sister from The Little Mermaid

Trust me, this is a character that exists. And what do you think this list speaks to more: Swifts otherworldliness, or fantasy's unoriginality when it comes to creating female creatures?


Side note: don't search for Disney characters with safe search turned off. You will see Ariel's breasts.

1. Taylor Swift

Yes. The number one magical creature that looks like Taylor Swift is Taylor Swift, because she is not only a song-writing, literary-metaphor-mixing teen idol, but also a sunshiney music pixie with immense hypnotic powers. I mean, have you seen the video for "You Belong With Me"? Probably, because it's been watched over sixteen million times just on YouTube!


Truly not of this earth. So tune in to the awards Sunday night to see if Swift comes out on top or reveals she has the wings of an eagle and the body of a lion or something.

uh huh

She has normalish eyes. You just can't wear false lashes and really heavy makeup on top and bottom if you don't have huge eyes.

Actually, Samantha from Bewitched looks a lot more like Michelle Obama in that picture.

What's funny to me is that the writer here chose the most average looking girl to compare to unusual creatures.

Steven Tyler looks more like a Gelfling than this singer does. That, and two of the six aren't even creatures.

I see a resemblance to a lethargic creature called a Snorlax but not in Taylor Swift.

Haha, this is creepily accurate. Plus Arista is an awesome find.

Jan 27 10 - 6:01am

you TOTALLY forgot Falcor from the never ending story!!

I know there's and internet running joke with Victoria Beckham too, but tell me I'm wrong! Go compare the two! Maybe all celebrity women are just some epic breed of Luck Dragon.

Jan 29 10 - 10:20am

Jan 29 10 - 11:19am

I think she looks like Shirley Temple!

Jan 29 10 - 8:20pm

He was absolutely right about Ariel's breast. Good times!

Jan 31 10 - 7:44pm

Feb 03 10 - 6:19pm

Feb 04 10 - 7:01pm

But I just don't like her!! You Belong With Me is an annoying song. Grr.

Feb 06 10 - 9:11pm

Try "You Belong to Me" by Mike Viola and the Candy Butchers.
