One grander by far by shoomlah One grander by far by shoomlah
God I love dagged sleeves. Almost as much as I love slashed ones. I just want to dag and slash everything I can get my hands on.

I've wanted Maleficent to be the first villain in the series for a while now, ever since I made the mental leap between Maleficent's horns and 15th century horned hennins. The time period works out pretty well, actually, since I wanted her to look a little more dated than Aurora's 1480's getup- both houppelandes and horned hennins were all the rage during the early- to mid-1400's, and they make for pretty good analogues to her official costuming.  Sexy stuff.

This proves more than any of the previous pieces that these are adaptations, not improvements. I mean, look at the original Maleficent design- how does one improve on PERFECTION

My compliments for making Maleficent look EVEN MORE like the Queen of Air and Darkness than her original designers did!

 (One can only wonder just how long it will take some bright spark on YouTube to pair scenes from the forthcoming Live Action movie featuring the Disney Villainess who set the Gold Standard with songs from 'Wicked' - I have never seen and will hopefully never be obliged to see that musical, so if I can come up with the idea then someone is clearly just counting down the days).

I never could figure out Malificent's horns but this makes soooooo much more sense, thank you.

I do so love the way those licking green flames are only really visible when the sleeves flare open. I think Maleficent makes enough dramatic gestures to show those off. <3
