Disney – Evil Queen Mini Papercraft
Posted on Jul 5 2012 at 05:38:08 PM in Artists
This disney papercraft is a mini Evil Queen, designed by Gus Santome. The Evil Queen is the main villain in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Determined to remain the fairest of all, the Queen becomes insanely jealous of Snow White, the only one whose beauty surpasses her own.
The Queen’s sole motivation is physical beauty and her ability to maintain it. Her evil and hatred come from nothing more than her fiendishly obsessive desire to remain the “fairest in the land”. She eventually uses her skills in dark magic to transform herself into the Witch, in a final attempt to do away with her only, unknowing rival. Depicted in early designs as a fat, comical character, her appearance eventually evolved into a much more sinister, stately beauty. She is generally considered one of Disney’s most iconic and menacing villains, once being voted the 10th greatest movie villain of all time. The Queen was animated by Art Babbit and the Witch by Norman Ferguson. Veteran actress Lucille La Verne voiced both. She is sometimes referred to as the The Queen or the Wicked Queen. Comics occasionally call her Queen Grimhilde. The Witch is sometimes referred to as the Old Hag or the Peddler.
Like many Disney villains, the Queen embodies two of the Seven Deadly Sins, in her case Envy and Pride. She ranked #4 in the top 30 Disney villains. In addition, she ranked 10th in the American Film Institute’s Top 50 Film Villains of All Time in 2003, one of only three Disney villains to make the list, the other two being Man and Cruella DeVil.
The Queen is a coldly beautiful woman with a serene and unfeeling face and a slender figure. She is pale-skinned with green eyes, red lipstick, and thin, high arched eyebrows. Her beautiful features and her royal attire create a very stunning and beautiful Queenly image. The Queen is seen wearing a purple gown with long sleeves and a rope belt tied around her waist. She wears a black balaclava that covers her ears, neck, and hair, leaving her face exposed. The Queen wears a long black cloak that appears to be part of the cowl. The cloak is lined with red inside and the bottom of the cloak is lined with white fur. She has a high white collar attached to her cloak. She also wears a golden pendant that seems to connect with the collar. To top off her royal appearance, the Evil Queen wears a golden crown atop her head with five spikes on the front and a jewel on the tip of the middle and tallest spike. The color scheme of her attire represents her pride and vanity.
In her witch disguise, the Queen’s physical appearance changes from that of a youthfully beautiful queen with an unfeeling look on her face to that of an ugly, old peddler with face of displaying emotions. She has long, tangled white hair, thick eyebrows, gold eyes, and dark rings around her eyes. Her nose becomes long and crooked with a large wart, and she only has one visible tooth on her bottom jaw. Her hands are gnarled and have pointed, dirty fingernails. She dons a black, cowled robe that retains the hanging sleeves of her dress. She also seems to wear grey slippers.
Walt Disney described the Evil Queen, “a mixture of Lady Macbeth and the Big Bad Wolf… her beauty is sinister, mature, plenty of curves… she becomes ugly and menacing when scheming and mixing her poisons; magic fluids trasnsform her into an old. witch-like hag.”
The Evil Queen, as her name indicates, is a extremely cold, devilish, heartlessly vain, cruel, and remorseless monarch. The Evil Queen cares only about her beauty and reputation, and cannot stand the idea of anyone being more beautiful than her. She orders the execution of her stepdaughter Snow White without a moment’s hesitation when she is named the fairest in the land. She will even threaten the life of her subject, the Huntsman, if he were to fail in murdering the Princess. The Queen is very devious and scheming. Her plans to kill Snow White are well thought out and she does not allow room for error. Ironically, her quest to slay Snow White to become fairest in the land caused her to sacrifice that beauty which she so dearly cared for.
The Evil Queen gets revenge on Snow White by put the Dwarfs in the dungeon, and put a hourglass on the table and laughs. But the player mixed the right ingredients and the Prince appeared and kiss Snow White and she wakes up. The player looks at the hourglass and said ” We got to get out of here, the Queen will be here at any second”. So our heroes freed the Dwarfs and escaped to the woods and live happily ever after. Meanwhile, the Evil Queen looked and saw that Snow White was awakened and left, she was enraged that the player foiled her evil plot. They meet for a second time and she retreats to her evil apple house, but the player throws the Queen’s evil explosion magic at the evil hideout and The Queen’s final words are ” Magic Mirror on the Wall, Who is the fairest one of all”. The player said ” It’s Snow White”! There was a flash of light and the Queen dies by being frightened at her reflection and the apple house was crumbling to dust.
