Sleeping Beauty by secondlina Sleeping Beauty by secondlina

Sleeping beauty is a really intriguing fairy tale. I mean, there's so much to play with. This is my interpretation of Sleeping beauty and the fairies, which includes the mean fairy. She's obviously inspired by Maleficent, who is the coolest. I really love that people adapting the tale often give the bad fairy a backstory. I really enjoyed the version they had in Castle Waiting too.

Bad fairies, good fairies, sleeping ladies. All cool stuff.

I love your take on Maleficient (the hair horns are cool)

Personally, I'm a little annoyed that Disney wants to turn Maleficient into "Disney-Elphaba" by adding a cliche "tragic woobie backstory" and trying to make it seem as if she's somehow justified in placing a coma-curse on a baby. Maybe it's just me, but I think the character is more fun as a crazy, badass Dragon Witch.

I like the idea of giving her a backstory (I kinda like the idea that her wings got stolen) and i'm a fan of the idea of frenemies, but yeah, softening her story might have been an odd move? Hopefully the movie is quality enough to make up for it.

Frankly, I think it was the bad fairy's OWN fault she wasn't invited. If she had just gone out once in a while and shown people she was still around, they wouldn't have thought she was dead! 
Nice work on the good fairies by the by. I like how their colors reflect of each other. And I love your brunette beauty!

I liked the idea of her as a brunette. Allowed to put purple everywhere.
