It took us over an hour to get the lighting right on these photos, but here is my version of Maleficent. I wanted her to have this great party girl vibe, and I tried my hardest to make a skirt reminiscent of the bad prom dresses from the late 80's, early 90's. I wanted the "bow" in front to be bigger....but it still worked out.
The sleeves are fantastically cute, but I've GOT to figure out how to make them more comfy before I sell them. I think I've already got it figured out, though.
I believe STRONGLY in pieces that stray away from the "cartoony" look. Obviously, I like loud, over-the-top types of costumes, but they have to maintain a level of elegance that makes it so you can wear it as a 17-year old or a 65-year..uh..young.
