Evil Queen Cosplay Costumes
The Evil Queen is described to be a gorgeous woman, but one whose beauty is sinister and cold. Judging her appearances alone, she appears to be a very calm and collected woman—one of regal, grace, and sophistication. But knowing her only reveals The Evil Queen as extremely insecure and vain. She is a ruthlessly jealous woman whose sole obsession is to be the fairest one of all. So much so that she cares very little about ruling her kingdom for as long as she remains, or becomes, the most beautiful in the land.
The witch, though looking nothing like her, shares plenty of her personality traits, most notably her vanity and penchant for jealousy. Turn your costume into an evil Disney party. Invite your friends to dress up as other iconic Disney villains like Ursula, Cruella de Vil, Yzma, Maleficent, and Jafar.
About Evil Queen
The Evil Queen is considered to be one of Disney’s most iconic and most menacing villains. She is the first Disney animated canon villain. She was even once voted to be the 10th greatest movie villain of all time by the American Film Institute.
In the early stages of design, she resembled a fat and frumpy, comical character. However, Disney decided later on that she should be depicted to be more realistic and majestic, leading to her current, timeless design. Instead of becoming a comical character, she instead became a femme fatale. She is said to be a symbolic figure of Ancient Europe which American audiences viewed as a symbol of not only elegance and grace but also of decadence and self-destruction.
Several references are said to have inspired her design – Joan Crawford (lips and eyes), a column statue at Naumburg Cathedral (costume), and George de Feure’s La Femme au chapeau noir (facial features).
