Maleficent: Maleficent Costume Concept. I did this at the very beginning of the production, before I started working on some of the creatures. It's heavily based on the iconic costume in the original animated feature. I really like the final design which we can see in the movie though.

Love this concept design. The movie design was not my favorite. Then again the movie was not my favorite, I would have love to see a more traditional look for Maleficent like this one.

yes the final design was awesome but this has the iconic purple, it might be softer looking but i think that in the movie- this actually fits her better.

This drawing alone is fantastic.  But to see this as an actual costume would be awesome!   I know this Halloween I am probably going to see many Maleficent costumes because of the movie.  Heck, I would even like my wife to dress up as Maleficent!

Rave.

I wish at least one of the costumes had gone this direction.

I wasn't too crazy about the reveal that Maleficent now has real horns... I always pictured that as some sort of head dress.  I haven't seen the new film yet, though, so maybe it makes more sense in context.  I think the new design overall fits a live-action version of the character when she's in her robes, but you can never beat the 50's animated style, and I would have loved to have seen something like this concept on screen!

I really wish the film had kept this (green skin and all)...although I'm glad you went with what you did. Wonderful work, as always!
