Something magical happens when this group of crochet enthusiasts meet to make dreams come true.

Former oncology nurse and mom Holly Christensen has started a group called The Magic Yarn Project, a clan of dedicated crocheters that meet to make Disney princess wigs for children with cancer.

A daughter of one of Christensen's friends was diagnosed with lymphoma so she decided to make a Rapunzel yarn wig. Here's what she told Babble:

"I knew she would be going through a difficult time, and that no one would be able to take her suffering away. I also knew that losing her long, curly blonde hair at not even 3 years old would be difficult for her, so I figured that the yarn wig could help bring a little magic and fun to a difficult time in her life."

Designs include princess Elsa and Anna from Frozen and princess Jasmine from Aladdin.

The group has a GoFundMe account set up to help fund even more wigs for children around the world battling cancer.

Researchers over at Disney are really thinking outside the lines.

This super impressive video shows off an app they made, which turns colored pictures in a coloring book into 3D, moving models.

The video can be a little dry, but when it shows what the app can do, it will blow your freaking mind.



What is this sorcery???



The whole thing reminds us of what Microsoft showed at this year's E3, where they pulled Minecraft up from a table by using a Hololens.

It's kind of a cross between that and this virtual reality app that lets artists draw in the space around them.

We've said it before, but we really are on the cusp of a landmark period for technology influencing art and how it's made. Sit back on enjoy it!

Disney Japan Twitter doesn't get national tragedies.

Either Disney Japan's Twitter has a pretty cruel sense of humor or some ignorant employees.

On Aug. 9, the official Japanese Twitter account for Disney tweeted out the following message to its 277,000 followers:



According to Kotaku the Japanese at the top reads "Congrats on a trifling day" before the Alice in Wonderland message.

Well, you see, Aug. 9 was also the 70th anniversary of the World War II atomic bombing of Nagasaki. In that event, according to Wikipedia, "roughly 39,000–80,000 people were killed. About half of these died immediately, while the other half suffered lingering deaths."

Not exactly a "trifling day" for the country who marked the occasion with solemn ceremonies, commemorating all of those 'unbirthdays'.

Kotaku, through translating Japanese news site My Game News Flash, points out that this isn't the only time the Twitter account has made a less-than-sensitive post.

The account posted this, reading "Enjoying your summer vacation?" last year on Aug. 15.



Aug. 15 marks the date of the Japanese surrender in World War II.

Additionally, the account posted this, reading "Giving you mid-summer sympathy" on Aug. 6.



Aug. 6 is the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing, in which some 70,000-80,000 people died.



As Kotaku says:


My Game News points out that Disney Japan's Twitter account typically does not post messages like this (instead, the tweets are typically PR, introducing movies, TV shows, events or products), making these questionable tweets stand out even more. Why were these dates selected, people wondered.



Disney Japan has since apologized for the tweet and deleted it off of its account.

That's why you always get a screen shot.
