Maleficent in the recent movie starring Angelina Jolie was the inspiration for this costume I created for a customer. My customer and I really wanted to capture that look and feel she had when she was a forest fairy.
These are the images I used as a reference point.
The fabric I used was an amazing high quality brown stretch suede. This gave the costume a form fitting flattering shape through the bust.
I then lined the sleeves with brown chiffon silk and a golden toned silk as an under layer for the sleeves. This creates a lovely magical look when the gown is being worn.
Leather shoulder accents are trimmed with copper and brown toned feathers.
The braided belt is made from the suede of the gown. A grecian style neckline really adds to the elegance of the costume.
