Take a Ride With This ‘Aladdin’ Magic Carpet Cosplay
What do you get when you mash up Aladdin and his Magic Carpet? Let’s check out this Aladdin cosplay!
It’s another Arabian night – full of unexpected wonders! The world of cosplay has a clever way of creating new spins on beloved characters. This week, we’re featuring a hometown hero who is known for her fantastical cosplay creations, and we teamed up to bring her visions to life. We’re exploring the wonderful world of Disney with this Magic Carpet cosplay!
Disney’s Aladdin was one of the first films I saw in theaters. With its astonishing visuals and gorgeous musical score, Aladdin quickly became an all-time favorite. The first cosplay I ever created was Princess Jasmine, but a friend of mine’s quirky personality spoke to a much more fun-loving character.
Mia St. Clair is a dear friend who specializes in original creations for her cosplay, and when we met up for our yearly photo retreat with AzulOx Visuals, she came with a specific mission in mind – the Magic Carpet.
Creating the Magic Carpet Cosplay
As the legend has it, Mia attended a convention and was gifted a painted vest by a patron. This inspired her to create a Magic Carpet cosplay. She arrived at our retreat with this gorgeous vest painted in the colors of the iconic Disney carpet, and I KNEW what we had to do. My specialty is historical costuming, and I happened to have a bag full of garb with me… and some of my weaponry as well.
With my Persian shamshir, my Armstreet Persian boots, and some Indian pants, Mia had everything she needed to bring her Magic Carpet to life! A few swirls of paint on her gorgeous face later, and we were ready to shoot. Our friend Josh had the perfect location handy, the historical Rattlesnake Canyon- and the rest is history. We hope you enjoy this creative take on Aladdin’s Magic Carpet!
