Where

Pop In A Box sell Funko Pops! as well as other pop-culture merch from various brands, like this Disney Maleficent tee £14.99.

Design

I think her image here is subtle but effective, in a quietly menacing sort of way. The printing is more faded in real life than it looks on the website. I usually prefer this as it gives it a retro look as if I’ve picked it up from a charity shop or I’ve had it since I was young.

Unfortunately, I think the designers were a little too enthusiastic about the grainy effect of the image. There’s ‘faded and edgy’ and then theres ‘had a fight with a sandpaper’. As a result, it looks almost sketched on with pencils, rather than printed and I can’t decide if I actually like that or not.

Maybe I might dye it a slightly darker grey to give it more depth. I did this with my Count Duckula tee which was originally white with very bright printing and it came out looking really stylish.

Fit

I chose ‘Medium’ which, according to the size chart, is the equivalent of a UK size 12 and found it to be true to size. It’s a slightly fitted, flattering cut rather than boyfriend-fit, a good length and not too tight around the neckline or the sleeves.

    OMG! That Maleficent tee is super cool! Although I admit it’s a bit too faded. Anyhoo, it’s Maleficent ❤ So, anything Maleficent it's cool 😀

      I’m so glad you agree hon. I used a cardboard nail file to file off a bit of colour in a few places and then coloured in the black on her robe with a black biro (lol) and it looks a lot more even and natural now. Yeah, retro Maleficent!

    Maleficent is such an underrated character, and this is such a nice top. I usually hate going for grey tshirts, but the image is so big that I don’t think it would bother me.

      Yes she is definitely! It’s a pale grey and her colour is still fairly bright.

    I agree with you the shirt does look faded.
