|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Liza, the 'Maleficent' costume creator:
I decided to have a Disney costume inspired by Disney animated movie sleeping Beauty in 1959. Everything I'm wearing here are DIY.BTW I'm the one who's wearing the costume.
The Horn , as my model I search in Google. It's made of wire shape like the horn of maleficent. I needed a newspaper, black paint and glue. I glued strips of newspaper around the wire, to smooth it down i have to glue a few more strips and let it dry. after drying I started painting it black. and attached to a paper mache shape size of my head also painted with black.
The Maleficent staff is so simple that I just need a broom stick and a round polystyrene foam painted with golden yellow and on top is a preserved lark I borrowed from a friend's science lab.
For the cape I bought Black and purple Gina cloth sewed it according to maleficent's cape design and glues purple ribbon along the edge of the cloth.
Making these costume needed to allot time and patience specially for a mother like me.
