Um, do you feel that…?
The tingling in the air? It feels familiar, like something I’ve felt many times before. It’s called Disney magic, and right now it’s everywhere! 🙂
In what turned out to be the BIGGEST post I’ve ever written for the blog (so big, in fact, that I suspect the server may crash), here are 101 things you probably didn’t know about Disney and the upcoming MAC Venomous Villains collection (but certainly will now).
The collection launches in the U.S. on September 30 and internationally in October.
1. MAC used the original Disney Pantone shades to develop the colors
When designing the four Venomous Villains sub-collections — The Evil Queen (as far as we know, that’s her stage name) from 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Maleficent from 1959’s Sleeping Beauty, Cruella de Vil from 1961’s 101 Dalmations and Dr. Facilier from 2009’s The Princess and the Frog — MAC based the color stories on the original Disney character sketches and Pantone color guides.
They took it all into consideration — the attitudes of the characters, their skin tone, clothes and style — and not just the colors Disney used to ink them.
As a lifelong Disney fan and art fanatic, I’ve been looking forward to this collection for months!
Last June MAC revealed details about the upcoming release at an event in Los Angeles. Here are some pics from that event and a whole bunch of other stuff, too. 🙂
