Maleficent. Made of black dyed rose. Horns made of rose sepals. The wand is a rose stem.
I have high hopes for the darkly-gorgeous imagery of this movie.
… having read a couple of the plot summaries, I do not have those same high hopes for the storyline. sigh
To be perfectly clear, loves: I don’t object to a Maleficent fashion line from Hot Topic. I’m just wary about what the quality of fabric and construction will be like. And the wire-frame horns ARE really cute.
There’s an official tie-in fashion line for the upcoming Maleficent movie. At … Hot Topic. The Elder Goth Cabal (that does not exist) is VERY DUBIOUS about all of it.
I had wings once. They were strong. They were stolen from me.
Please let this movie be good. Please.
Sleeping Beauty AU - Never meeting Prince Phillip, Aurora sleeps for a hundred years, during which Maleficent comes to the princess in her dreams, teaching her dark secrets and magic spells. At the end of the hundred years a king comes, slays the dragon, and awakens Aurora, who kills him in the marriage bed and takes her place as queen and Maleficent’s chosen heir."For a hundred years, I slept. And for a hundred years, she visited me in dreams. Revealing to me secrets no other human could know, teaching me spells that would twist my heart black. I do not know why; perhaps she saw something wicked in me. Perhaps she simply wanted to spite those who had weakened her curse upon me by molding me in her image. But she gave me power, my king. And now so shall you."
If the movie is terrible, we will rewrite it. We aren’t movie makers, but damn it we have artists and GIFs.
We will not disappoint you.
YES, we will rewrite it if need be.
Thank you, everyone who let me know to flounce over to Google Play to download the “Once Upon A Dream” cover! ::adds it to the “menace” playlist::
(Please, by all the powers of the Unseelie Court, let this movie be good. Please don’t give my dark queen a “tragic” backstory. Let her be wholly, unrestrainedly malevolent, let her motivations be nothing mortal, let her be joyously wicked.)
I SWEAR this video was made by a fan-vidder who’s also a big old drag queen.
It just shrieks ARCH CAMP DELIGHT.
And I adore it.
Bonus: Lana Del Rey, personally chosen by Angelina Jolie, to sing “Once Upon a Dream”.
::claps hands in delight::
Because I was away from Teh Interwebs all day, I had no idea about this. And then the StuntHusband excitedly emailed me about THIS SONG. I NEED THIS SONG.
