There aren’t all that many do it yourself tutorials for Maleficent. Villains just don’t have as many fans as the Disney princesses, I suspect. But we’ve found an instructional video by Sweet Styles which will help you with your outfit.
There are a ton of video tutorials on YouTube for Maleficent’s headdress. The first video we selected was made by a Special FX group in Turin, Italy called Chunk Collective. The language spoken is Italian but there are English subtitles to help those of us who don’t speak or understand Italian.[/td_text_with_title][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW-IXFYnn3g”][vc_column_text]The second video was made by Threadbanger after a user request. They use buckram to make the base for the headpiece and paperclay modeling material to make the horns. Drying time for the various pieces is 1-2 days, so be sure to start your horns early an don’t wait until the last minute! They have links to patterns available if you click through to the Youtube page for the video.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4on0CZasjA”][td_text_with_title custom_title=”Wings”]
The wings made in the below tutorial look fantastic and are massive. They were made for cosplay and would be great attached to a Maleficent costume.
Warning: this tutorial is on the long side at about 30 minutes. That’s fantastic for when you are ready to build but if you are just starting the planning stages and looking for inspiration, you may need to bookmark it and come back when you won’t be interrupted. Why is the video nearly half an hour? They build the wings twice, switching to foam the second time.[/td_text_with_title][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lGPO6_FDY8″][td_text_with_title custom_title=”Staff”][/td_text_with_title][vc_column_text]You would find it hard to be an evil witch without a powerful staff. Here’s a guide from the Prop Master’s Handbook to making one from some cardboard gift wrap rolls, black electrical tape and a small ball.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0okPX7-sss”][vc_column_text]Don’t have time to make your own?
