After a truly spectacular movie, once the lights have come on and you whisk away the remnants of popcorn kernels from your lap, you are often left wanting more. You do not want the magic to end. It’s as if you went on some fabulous — albeit short — vacation but didn’t get to leave the locale with a T-shirt, mug, or snow dome. You yearn to take a piece of that story home with you to keep and cherish forever. That’s just what happened to my daughter and I after we saw Disney’s Maleficent.
Maleficent, thanks to the vision of director Robert Stromberg, is a feast of beauty and boldness. And while we can’t actually go to the Moors and hang out by the bubbling streams with Angelina Jolie, there are plenty of souvenirs that we can order and incorporate into our closet, playroom, and even bedroom. And these items aren’t just things you’d find en masse at a big-box store; these are unique objects from amazing designers like Stella McCartney, Crow’s Nest, and Naeem Khan.
Check out 10 of our favorite pieces of Maleficent magnificence right here.
You know what is totally awesome about this Maleficent-inspired dress by Stella McCartney? It's not just a "costume" — it also makes a stunning party dress. It does double duty! Not pictured here are the wings that come with the outfit that really elevate it into the realm of fantasy.
If your little girl is more of an Aurora type than Maleficent type, well Stella McCartney created a fabulous frock just for her. This dress is STUNNING. Yes, all caps stunning. It's simple yet dreamy and that signature Aurora blue with gold detailing adds a totally royal flair. Yes, it's pretty princess worthy.
Now, this jewelry is not, I repeat, not child's play. This is serious jewelry that doesn't just pack power but a hefty price tag. Crow's Nest created this edgy line of fine jewelry that ranges in price from $5,180.00 - $20,880.00. These pieces, inspired by thorns, horns, dragons, feathers, and fire, really do capture the essence of the film in metal form. The seven-piece collection is available at specialty stores such as Fivestory and Fragments in NYC.
Can't you totally see Angelina Jolie sporting this on the red carpet? Not as Maleficent, but just as a movie star? I sure can. This Naeem Khan Embellished Cropped Jacket is tough and feminine, just like Angelina (and her character Maleficent).
How much do I want this purse? SO MUCH. It's simple but makes a statement and mirrors the dark hues of the movie. That it's inspired by such a great film is just a coincidence, it's just a great bag regardless.
What little girl wouldn't want to play dress up in this gorgeous deluxe Aurora costume? The second they put it on they will totally get in touch with their inner princess, just keep them away from the spinning wheel.
I have one complaint about these Stella McCartney inspired shoes: They don't come in my size! I love that they created these dragon shoes for the Maleficent boy fans out there, and there are plenty of them!
While this may be a doll, this lovely object is to put on the shelf not for your little one to play with. It's the kind of doll you actually buy two of, one to display and one to store away as a collector's item.
