Without Further Ado...
When you cross Maleficent and Billy Ray Cyrus, you get:
Drama Note: I used Etsy's Alchemy services, and ordered a custom-made Hannah Montana tunic and jacket to match this one:
The fabric was shipped to the sewer MONTHS ago, and the garment was promised Sept. 14th. Guess what hasn't arrived? Thankfully, while paging through the TOYS R US bigbook, I noticed a new HM dress-up item that exactly matched what I was trying to achieve. I am still rather steamed that my seller never delivered and that I am out the bucks, but I am working on getting her booted from etsy.
And Sleeping Beauty:
This is Lil Sis' favorite Disney Princess, and I could not pass up the opportunity to be the evil Maleficent. The costume headpiece came as a 1-dimensional foam thingy, so I added a felt backing, polyfill and all the purple accents. I studied the golden book version of the illustrations of Maleficent for my makeup inspiration. I think it turned out well, though here I am sick and also extremely warm, so the makeup looks a bit drippy.
Tonight we trunk-or-treat, so we are off to go decorate the car and make sure all our treats are in order. Ooh, I gotta make cornbread too, as my contribution to the chilli cook-off.
