I recently added a new guilty pleasure to my list of Netflix addictions - Once Upon a Time! As a lifelong Disney and fairy tale addict, I suppose you could say it was fate. The story is definitely what got me. I love the idea of all the fairy tales being connected, and they do a great job of weaving the stories together.
The one thing in the show I was disappointed with though was the costume design. I felt like it went a bit overboard sometimes, to the point of being a little cheesy (can we cool it with all the glitter, guys?). I think some of the princess costumes also stuck a little too close to the cartoon versions. I would have loved to see them do a new take on them, and the more I thought about it, the more I thought of how I would do them. And so, the overthinker that I am, I just couldn't help putting a little inspiration board together.
Here's my little take on Cinderella! For those of you who haven't seen the show, this is their version. I just felt she was a bit over the top, too much iridescence, glitter, and way too many curls. I love the idea of Cinderella having a more understand vintage glamour vibe to her.
(Clockwise) Isn't Grace Kelly, just the perfect real life Cinderella inspiration? // I love this little hair clip for a little elegant sparkle. // This gorgeous necklace has a definite vintage princess vibe // I love how simple and beautiful this hairis // My idea of the absolute perfect Cinderella dress, gorgeous and simple!
I know I'm sort of the odd man out with not loving their costume design, so I expect some of you to think I'm nuts. Also, now you've all been fully exposed to my Disney-obsessed, princess-loving side, so feel free to make fun:)
