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.

Shadow Man

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.

  1. omg you are a genius! I love your whole series of being inspired by films. I originally stumbled across your Little Mermaid article, but I am bookmarking the whole site so that I can look through your other stuff 😀 thankyou! Much love from England! x x x x

  2. I loved this post, but honestly I think you have done enough Disney Inspirations (even though they are all amazing) annnnnnnnnnnd I think it’s time to move on to other things.. like, umm… a HARRY POTTER HOUSE SERIES!!!!! :DDD YES YES YES!

  3. I love this! You did a great job of creating outfits from the movie scenes 🙂

    And I would totally love a Harry Potter series!

  4. these outfits are amazing! i didn’t think facilier had any worthwhile fashion tips when i first saw the princess and the frog, but i guess i was wrong!!! great great job, love it!

  5. The third look is perfect, and I’m really diggin’ the color of that bag!

    I adore the idea Hogwarts houses series too–I am such an HP fangirl, it’s ridiculous 🙂

  6. I’ve never commented on a college fashion article before, but I have to tell you that I absolutely love your color choices and accessories in the outfits you chose. 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! 🙂

  7. 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.

  8. 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!!
