Disguise makeups: Magical disguises

Featuring actresses playing characters using magical powers, or magical artefacts and potions, to disguise themselves effectively.

The evil step-mother in Snow White is, of course, the archetype but with magic anything is possible: old hags become young; beautiful young women become crones; women become men; trolls become human.

Of course, sometimes they don’t work out too well.

Sometimes from an old hag (or an ugly troll) magically transforms into a beautifully woman – as in the Merlin episodes ‘The Dragon’s Call’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ – it is the rollover image that portrays the ‘disguise’.
