“Snow White and the Huntsman” : There’s something dark and mysterious that we love about this modern take of Grimm fairytale  Snow White.  Without a doubt, what catches our eye the most are the luxurious costumes that were made by Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood! Just by looking at these movie stills and trailer, I imagine that many women will be inspired to make their very own Queen Ravenna  Halloween costumes. Luckily for you, we can get you started with a pair of Black Iridescent Rooster Coque Wings  and Black Rooster Coque tails by the yard, just like the one’s used by Colleen Atwood!

Haute-Couture Queen
For costuming, SWATH employed one of the best in the business, three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Alice in Wonderland” 2010, ”Memoirs of a Geisha” 2005, “Chicago” 2002). Hundreds of costumes were required for the film, including 12 major costumes just for Theron’s Queen Ravenna, all of which required hundreds of hours of labor. “There’s a collar made of Stag Beetle horns. There’s actually a dress made of beetle wings in her wardrobe. There’s a wedding dress for her, which is at the beginning of the movie, that has a huge collar made out of really fine, almost skeletal type bones. She also has a cape made of cock feathers that have been carved and sculpted into a shape on a cape. I call it her transforming cape because she becomes birds when she wears it. So all in all she’s quite the haute-couture sort of queen, but with an aged, rotting edge to her,” says Atwood.
