Disney Villains Designer Collection
Six Beautiful and Evil Dolls
The female villains of a few of the most popular Walt Disney movies have been re-imagined in a new series, Disney Villains Designer Collection. These aren't your old gnarled wrinkled meanies from Disney past.
These dolls are breathtaking. In this new collection the fantasy world's most evil women are tall lean and dressed in runway-ready ensembles. Some have had face lifts and some have lost a few inches around their tentacles, but beware, they still possess their most potent feature, pure evil.
Old Hollywood Glamour Meets Evil Villain
The artists at Disney invoked the classic style of old Hollywood glamour when creating these lovely lethal bad girls. Think Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth dressing in contemporary couture.
Arched eyebrows, dramatic makeup and gravity defying updos are crafted on each doll.
Six Dolls To Rule them All
The collection is comprised of six of the most famous female villains from classic and contemporary Disney movies. Each doll has commanded her own release date. Could you expect anything less from these menacing divas.
The Evil Queen - Poor Snow would never have had a chance had she gone up against this B___!
She makes me want to be bad if I can look this good. It's easy to see that her fairest-of-them-all wish finally came true because she is THE most gorgeous doll I have ever seen. Emerald eyes veiled in long rooted lashes cunningly watch for her moment to snatch her prey. Regal, elegant and evil in a long purple gown, red satin cape and tall white collar. Look out Dopey and Doc. Here comes the Evil Queen!
Maleficent - Sleeping Beauty should have stayed in bed.
No evil villain scared me more than the evil sorceress Maleficent. Perhaps it was her double horn-like headpiece she donned in the Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. The doll version of Maleficent sports a double beehive hairstyle which commands your presence.
Her dress can only be described as a "Goth Chick's Fantasy Wedding Dress." The black and purple cape with high collar cloak the menacing, and stylish evil that lurks beneath; Leatherette bustier with tulle ruffle trim and matching gloves over a fit and flare skirt. Every collector should want this doll.
Queen of Hearts - Will the real Queen of Hearts please stand up.
The Queen of Hearts resembles nothing of her animated self. Thank God! This doll is breathtaking compared to the grouchy faced frump who spoke like a marble mouthed lush in Walt Disney's Alice In Wonderland. Her Kewpie doll face almost resembles Betty Boop. The updated QOH looks more cherub than tyrant in her red velvet bustier and peplum over gold organza ruffles dress. But don't be fooled Alice. She is still wickedly wonderful.
Ursula - Just keep swimming Arial. Keep swimming.
One of the most dramatic makeovers the Disney artists did was on the Ursula doll. Compared to other Disney Villains, her character was not tremendously scary to me. But, this doll is terrifying in person. Her blazing eyes follow you as you move around her. And her stylish sea-witch ensemble makes you want to ask her "Who are you wearing? If you dare.
Some Missing Villains and Coming Soon: Cruella De Vil and Mother Gothel
Disney has produced 10 designer princess dolls. I am sure many fans are wondering if they intend on adding to the Villain collectiom to include four more sinester sisters or if they plan on a male Villain Designer collection. We will have to wait and see.
Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians and Mother Gothel from Tangled are soon to be released. I will update this hub after their release next week.
Evil Breeds More Evil... Merchandice That Is
These collectibles wouldn't be from Disney if there weren't other merchandising opportunities attached to this theme. The Villains has branched out to include journals, cups, tea shirts, jewelry, scarves, lip-gloss and nail polish for all your evil needs.
Coming Soon...Disney Villain Designer Collection Baby's 1st Birthday party supplies.
Just Kidding. Don't get any ideas guys.
