The Wicked Queen’s Magic Mirror

I must admit, I love the classic old animated films of Disney (classics such as Snow White, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Bambi, etc.) and I occasionally collect Disney memorabilia, both old and new. For years and years I dreamed that one day the people over at Disney would produce a replica of the Wicked Queen’s magic mirror from Snow White (ya know – mirror, mirror on the wall), not a child’s toy, but a real sized adult decor mirror, and to my delight that’s exactly what they did about ten years ago (when you wish upon a star your dreams come true)! This mirror is made of glass, resin and Swarovski crystals and it’s an exact replica taken from the film (the makers went back to the original drawings to get it just right). Only 2500 were produced. As you can see, I placed an apple under the mirror to tie in with the story of the beautiful, but poisoned apple given to Snow White by the evil queen disguised as an old woman, and in the last photo, you can see me pretending to be the spirit in the mirror.

      It’s one of my favorite things, Shirlie. In a couple of years, Spider and I are planning to down-size to a smaller house and we’re gonna get rid of most of our stuff (and go minimalist), but I don’t think I can part with this mirror!
