E is for....

the Evil Queen



There's a shop in Disneyland's Fantasyland called the Villain's Lair (currently closed) that featured merchandise with a Disney villain theme. Several years ago I was there and saw this framed print in the back of the shop and bought a copy of the print and had it framed. I love this print because, to me, she represents the evil side of beauty. The Queen, if you recall, is an aging beauty so consumed with jealousy over the young Snow White that she is willing to change herself physically in order to find and kill her. Reminds me of a lot of women I see in here in California--so obsessed with staying young that they torment their bodies in a desperate attempt to hang on to their fading looks instead of aging gracefully.

Currently the Queen hangs over my Stash where she protects it from harm. Unfortunately, she craves more yarn to protect so she has placed a Curse on me. I may knit as long as I wish but can never stop giving her more yarn.

That's a great print! She and Cruella de Vil were two fictional characters I was petrified of as a child ;)

You have a "wicked" sense of humour. Love your "E".

That is a very cool photo. And a brilliant explanation - I'd never thought of the Queen like that before.

Hey, my fur-babies get into my wardrobe too! Binky actually pulls things OFF THE HANGERS to sleep on. Wasn't impressed when it was my good silk skirt.

Mmm, cranberry yarn. Perdy.
