Cruella de Vil's dragon dress costume from 102 Dalmatians...

I've already had the good fortune to see this wonderfully detailed dragon dress, worn by Glenn Close as the infamous Disney villain 'Cruella de Vil' in the live-action 102 Dalmatians, on display at Disney's D23 Expo in 2011.

On my most recent visit to Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank on December 30, 2011, I was able to take a closer look at the elaborate costume as I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of showbiz treasures that were exhibited at the Expo to really take everything in. As they say the devil's in the detail, or is that 'de Vil'.

Anthony Powell was responsible for Costume Design on Disney's live-action movie sequel from 2000, with Rosemary Burrows acting as Costume Supervisor.

The embroidery detail on the dragon muff really is amazing, whilst on this occasion I was also able to glimpse a bit of the sequined dragon dress train (or is that tail?).

If you like this ornate dress, be sure to also check out Glenn Close's Cruella de Vil costume from 101 Dalmatians.
