A disgrace to the forces of evil

It took awhile but Momma has finally found all of the components for her My homage to Maleficent. 

For those who have been living under a rock, Malificent was the evil fairy and self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil" in Walt Disney Pictures 16th animated moving picture Sleeping Beauty in 1959.

Maleficent was based upon the evil fairy godmother character in Charles Perrault's fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty," as well as the villainess who appeared in the Brothers Grimm later version of the story, "Little Briar Rose."

The character was well-named Maleficent, an adjective which means "doing evil or harm," the antonym of beneficent which means "doing good or causing good to be done."

The fire caused Maleficent-approved chaos. I think Momma found the dress she made first, but it took awhile to find Both boots, the purple dragon-scale gauntlets crocheted by Momma's friend Jen, and the Magnificent Horned Headpiece made years ago by Party With Felt. 

The headpiece had to be washed and reshaped on a soda can, but I think it looks Good as New. 

Party With Felt no longer has an Etsy shop, but check out her website, Sweet Pea Kidz, at www.spktoo.com
