Maleficent: Mistress of Evil costume concept art

Well, well… its finally out! I spent 5-6 months doing Costume Concept Illustration for this film and as a huge lover of Disney villains, it was an awesome film for me to have the opportunity to be involved in.

I worked on the majority of Maleficent’s costumes, plus Aurora’s wedding outfits and many, many dark fey amongst others. Illustrations coming soon ūüôā

The actual makers (pattern cutters, embroiderers and so on) did SUCH an incredible job of bringing all the costumes together. The detail is stunning, and every costume is a work of art. Walking around the workshops and admiring the pieces being made in actuality was the highlight. Really, really well done guys.

I LOVED the film when I saw it at the crew screening – I definitely cried a lot! I was a little skeptical at first about what a sequel would be like (it’s a totally different movie, it’s not a remake or a story that is already out there) but it works beautifully and the characters are all fantastic. The art department had the challenge of creating the world within the film and I think it ended up looking super beautiful, bravo!

Hopefully i’ll be able to post some of the work I did at some point soon, but it’s always a weird one as to if and when… we shall see…

UPDATE: Some of the illustrations have made their way into a costume video, screenshots below ūüôā
