Disney’s next live-action adaptation of an animated film will be here on March 13. They’re retelling Cinderella, and while it seems like the story will be much the same as the animated film, the costumes are different. They look colorful and lush, just like the costumes did in Maleficent last year. Costume designer Sandy Powell is behind the elegant garb on Cinderella, and she had to redesign the character’s iconic blue dress and the glass slipper.
The blue dress – pictured above – is striking and voluminous. The skirt has so many layers that it looks like Cinderella is floating. Powell told Vogue that the cerulean gown is “composed of more than a dozen layers of gossamer-fine silk in different shades of pale blue, turquoise, and lavender.” It’s quite the project for ambitious cosplayers and seamstresses and some of them have already tackled it without the assistance of fairy godmothers.

This gown by Etania is still a work in progress, but it’s already looking lovely.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
