Evil Queen

“Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”

„One bite and all your dreams will come true.“

“When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I’ll be fairest in the land!”

“And there, my faithful huntsman, you will kill her.”

About

The Evil Queen is the main antagonist of Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and the first Disney animated features canon villain. Determined to remain the fairest one of all, the Queen becomes insanely jealous of Snow White, the only one whose beauty surpasses her own. She eventually uses dark magic in the form of an aging potion to disguise herself into an old woman, in a final attempt to do away with her only, unknowing rival.

From the outside, the Queen appears to be calm, regal and sophisticated, but in reality, this collected and stately facade hides an extremely cold and sinister person. She is ruthless, jealous and obsessive and wants nothing more than to be the fairest in the land.

In Summer 2018 I was asked to join a cosplay group which combines the idea of Disney Villains as Drag Queens (RuPaul’s DragRace) and I loved the idea! I decided to make the Evil Queen and the whole project was a pretty big challenge for me but all in all I’m happy with it. We even went on the stage for the Fantasy Basel which I never thought I would do in my life. It was a great experience for me.

Difficulty

This was one of my most difficult projects. I’m not a skilled seamstress and I made the first time a corsage. The costume is still not 100% finished and I have to correct some little issues. I also learned a lot with this project about styling wigs and makeup.
