Wicked Historical Maleficent Costume

historical maleficent costume

Artist Claire Hummel recently created a series of Disney princesses and villains drawn in dresses inspired by historical fashions. She based Maleficent’s look on a 15th century dress, and cosplayer Ali brought the illustration to life. She researched period clothing online and turned to costume books in order to make the design as historically accurate as possible. She told Geek x Girls the following about making the gorgeous costume:

I started with the horned hennins. I decided I would use Worbla as the base structure and thick eva foam for the horns. After priming and painting the middle section, and adorning with pearls I painted Glow in the Dark, I made sleeves to fit over the foam horns with velvet, hot glued them to the Worbla base and made a criss-cross pattern with gold wire, finishing it off by handsewing pearls where the wire met.

The houppelande is HUGE!!! Made with over 10 metres of fabric and fully lined…this bad boy was heavy but comfortable at the same time! lol. It is fully lined, including the dagger sleeves which were painted with fabric paint and glitter around the edges. The belt was made with Worbla and then covered with the same velvet used for the hennins and both pearls and resin medallions were handsewed on. The necklace was also made with resin, first by making clay sculptures, silicone molds, and then resin which were each painted.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
