Walt Disney Studios teams up with fashion designer Christian Siriano to create a costume for The Pirate Fairy’s Zarina.
Disney teamed up with fashion designer Christian Siriano to bring to life the newest addition to the world of Tinker Bell and Neverland in The Pirate Fairy.
Known for his whimsical and show-stopping designs, Siriano consulted with the filmmakers at Disneytoon Studios on Zarina’s pirate fairy costume.
“I loved the challenge of this project,” Siriano said in a statement. “I haven't designed for an animated character before, and I'm excited to take my skills into Zarina's world. She's a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I'm so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history. “
Zarina, voiced by Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), is a dust-keeper fairy that falls in with a band of pirates, including a cabin boy named James, voiced by Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers).
The Pirate Fairy sets sail on April 1, 2014.
