Maleficent and Prince Phil(l)ip Battle









 




 




 

 




 

There's nothing like executing a sequel to a previous themed shoot.  My daughter, Emerald, loves Disney's Sleeping Beauty so much that the show must go on.  Capturing only Aurora for her 3rd birthday shoot was not enough. For her birthday she was the protagonist from the movie and then for Halloween, the antagonist.  Emerald has assigned our characters from the start.  Emerald is Maleficent, daddy is the dragon, Caleb is Prince Phillip and mommy is the piggies (The Goons).  I wanted to become a Goon for Halloween, but my options were very limited and basic.  Instead, I am dressing up as one of the 3 good fairies, Fauna (green).  My sister Alexandra will be Merryweather (blue) and my sister Brittany will be Flora (red).  The Prince Phillip nickname stuck with us and the entire time my mom thought we meant the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II.  As a result, Caleb is paying homage to the late Duke of Edinburgh fashion wise, while also portraying the battle of Disney's Prince Phillip with his shield and sword! What a combo.  

 





 

BEHIND THE SCENES

 

DIY PAPER MACHE MALEFICENT SCEPTER 

The Dragon's Eye is a magical scepter that was once owned and wielded by the evil fairy Maleficent. It possesses great magical power that she used for her evil purposes.
 

 

 

 




 

DIY ROSE THORN BUSHES

Special thanks to our neighbor Pauline on gifting us 3 of her tall bamboo stalks to dry and paint for the photo shoot. I wanted to create a 3D effect of being inside a rose thorn bushes like in Disney's Sleeping Beauty during the Prince Phillip and Maleficent the Dragon battle.
