Maleficent Costume DIY & Glowing Staff Tutorial
Maleficent Costume DIY- Here are many pics of the Maleficent costume I made for Halloween! I must say, it's been one of my favorite costumes I've ever worn and made - that is after it was done. I drafted all the patterns, only using a basic skirt and turtleneck pattern to start with. Everything is an original design. Pics posted to inspire you to create a Maleficent costume all of your own! Happy Haunting!
Large clear Christmas ornament that I painted cool, and then put glow stick inside of. See bottom of pictures for more detailed photos & how to construct!
I did purchase the beaded corset, I'm not that crazy.
Fabrics from joann.com - (Top to bottom) Stretch black velvet for collar, 2 layer organza and green skin colored shiny tulle like fabric, black semi sheer organza for flame sleeve "cape" with 2-tone magenta purple organza, black faux leather embossed black fabric for 8 gusset skirt.
I did get asked to take A LOT of pictures on Halloween! So much fun.
Fake eyelashes a must
Contacts really made this look complete. Ordered them from lens.com Makeup from faceprint.com Products I used are: Magenta, Kryolan Green Aquacolor (non rub off a must!) a basic non-smear white that I blended with the green to try and lighten areas up.
I followed this makeup tutorial which is awesome!
This was from my practice run - color not as even as I wanted it. Definitely do a practice run!!
Used the top of a pool noodle to hold the ornament. I cut more of the center out so the base of the ornament could fit into here. You want a slightly loose fit if you want the crystal ball to be removable.
Purchased at Hobby Lobby. Plastic, not glass.
I use this 3M Dual Lock Low Profile Reclosable Fastener for a lot of projects. I had it, and it worked awesome because of how thin it is. Other Velcro would work too, I'm sure. The base of the bulb (and prongs) stay in the noodle while the bulb comes off. For our party & Halloween night I just dropped in a few short glow sticks.
Ball is removable with the fastener.
Hope you enjoyed my pics & got some inspiration!
