This evening I'm at Gleam's Halloween Party dressed as Maleficent, I thought it was the perfect time to embrace the spirit of Halloween and up my DIY outfit making skills and share how I did it all with you guys. As long as you have the horns, red lips and contoured cheekbones people should guess you're Maleficent. So on to how I made them:
Step 1: Create the horns
I saw several ways of doing this step, I chose to make mine out of tin foil, I did also buy some foam to carve out the shapes but foil seemed like the easiest option.
For the textured, to be honest I couldn't be bothered to glue on string so I added small hair ties spaced evenly across both horns.
Use black tape straight from the roll in one go to cover the horns, keep it taught.
I only had thin head bands so I tapped two together.
I didn't have any hot glue so I decided to tape to horns onto the headband.
For the textured front part I cut out some fabric from an old handbag, making sure I used a template first so it was even and tapped it onto the headband.
Using satin, wrap this around to cover up the headband and your hair. All done!
For the collar:
I cut out a template using paper, then cut two of these out of foam and pinned them together at the back.
To secure I used the string from the lace crown wrapped around my neck and threaded it through small holes I made in the collar.
To complete the look I added a feather cape which I later added some satin to making a long cape.
