Fashion Inspiration: Disney Villains – Dr. Facilier


Dr. Facilier

Although Disney Villains aren’t exactly role models, they do tend to be inspirational when it comes to fashion. Even the amazing makeup label MAC found them inspiring, releasing a Disney Villains-inspired makeup collection. So as requested by many of you, over the next few weeks, I’ll be breaking down fashion inspired by these wicked characters.

Like the previous articles in this series, the purpose of this article is to use childhood icons as inspiration for outfits that you can actually pull off as a college student. All it takes is a little creativity!

About Dr. Facilier

One of Disney’s newest villains (from the film The Princess & The Frog), Dr. Facilier, is a scheming voodoo witch doctor from New Orleans with “Friends on the Other Side.” His shadow friends gave him his magic powers via a voodoo talisman. Of course, he wants abuse his power and take over New Orleans to become the richest, most powerful man in the land – and once he stumbles upon Prince Naveen, he hatches a plan to do just that.

Although he never actually lies to Prince Naveen, he uses his words very carefully and tricks Naveen into making a deal with him. Instead of Naveen getting what he thought he would, he ended up turning into a frog. So when Princess Tiana kisses the frog, thinking he will turn back into a prince, instead, she turns into a frog as well. Eventually in the movie’s climax, Tiana ends up with Dr. Facilier’s talisman in a cemetery. He uses his charm to try to get her to give it back to him, but she is so furious that she breaks it. This causes Dr. Facilier’s shadow friends to turn on him.

Typical Dr. Facilier

Dr. Facilier wears the same outfit throughout the movie – a suit with purple, red, and gold accents, and a hat complete with skull and crossbones. To emulate his look, I used a purple velvet blazer, skinny pants, two toned shoes, skull earrings and of course, a black hat.

Friends on the Other Side

When Dr. Facilier tricks Prince Naveen into making a deal with him, he shows off all of his voodoo powers. Inspired by this colorful scene, I made an outfit with lots of green and purple, a whimsical patterned dress, and a skull ring like the skull mask that Dr. Facilier wears.

At the end of the movie, Dr. Facilier’s shadow friends turn on him and corner him into a grave in the graveyard. For an outfit inspired by this, I used a sweater dress, shadowy tights, and a tooth necklace similar to the one he wears throughout the movie.

    This is AWESOME! You captured him perfectly. I love Facilier, he’s an amazing villain and his songs (along with all the music in this movie) are so fantastic! Great job!!

    As a side note that has nothing to do with this article….I think it would be awesome if you did a ‘Harry potter house’ series…I mean, the color schemes for the houses are pretty and I think someone as creative as you could do great things with it! (: Just a thought!!

    Fantastic post! Dr. Facilier is one of my favorite Disney villains, and his villain song is simply awesome. I love the jewelry on the last outfit, especially the ring. And it’s only from Forever21! Perfect!

    I’m wondering if you can do posts based on the newest Disney Princess movie Tangled. Although the characters remain in the same clothes for the entire movie, there is a lot of detail and of course hair decorations to make plenty of outfits.

This is definitely one of my favorite college fashion articles! I would wear everything. This inspires me so much.. I love love love this! Great job Calli. :)

    And Christy’s idea for a ‘Harry Potter House Series’ would be amazing. I would love to see what you would come up with! :)

    Yes!! You captured Dr. F VERY well. I was listening to the Princess and The Frog Soundtrack this morning so I was very happy to see this post! I love the last outfit the best, even if the part where the shadows dragged Dr. F into the spirit world really creeped me out. :)

    PLEASE do a Hogwarts House themed series!!

    OMG those outfits are so cute. And yes, he uses many puns:
    -“It’s the green, it’s the green, it’s the green you need. And when Iook into the future, it’s the green that I see”
    Meaning, not money, but the green skin of a frog.
    -“But in your future, the you I see is exactly the man you always wanted to be”
    Meaning pretending to be the prince.
    That’s just a little something if you didn’t understand
