all hail short king Antonio Madrigal, who at only five years old, followed some rats into the walls of his house, offered some random hombre del saco looking man that claimed to be the uncle his hermano sang horror stories about his room to do some voodoo looking shit AND lent him his favorite plushie for the nerves, all to help his favorite prima save their Casita.
bc he believed every word Mirabel said like it was some message from god
Antonio: Imagine if someone handed you a box full of all the items you have lost throughout your life.
Mirabel: It would be nice to get my sense of purpose back.
Luisa: Oh wow, my childhood innocence! Thank you for finding this.
Bruno: My will to live! I haven't seen this in 10 years!
Camilo: I knew I lost that potential somewhere!
Pepa: Mental stability, my old friend!
Julieta: Guys, could you lighten up a little?
[ID: Digital fanart of Encanto. Side portraits of each of the members of the Madrigal family are arranged on a page, on top of a pattern, and connected together by a flowing line colored in a rainbow gradient. At the end of the line, “La familia Madrigal” is written. In order: Abuela has a pink candle, Dolores a sound wave and music notes, Antonio the head of a leopard, Camilo the faces of Bruno and his father, Pepa clouds with rain, Bruno a glass shard with a rat, Julieta some herbs, Maribel a butterfly, Luisa a dumbbell and a rock and Isabela a succulent. All but Maribel and Bruno are facing left.]
Little things I’ve noticed about the costume design in Encanto
In no particular order because I can’t put my thoughts into a cohesive line even if I tried…
The original triplets have their own colours: Julieta - Teal, representing her powers of healing, Pepa - Yellow, because she always needs to be happy and not ruin the weather, Bruno - Green, because green can represent both good and evil
Pepa’s family are wearing yellow. Felix, who married into the family, also wears yellow but with his own touch of orange stripes. The children are wearing yellow for their mom and have stripes for their dad.
Agustin’s clothes are white and dark blue which compliment Julieta’s teal. Luisa is wearing white and dark blue like her father and Mirabel is wearing white top and a skirt that goes from teal to blue, a little from both parents.
The last one is Isabela who is wearing violet. A combination beween her family’s blue colors and her grandmother’s magenta dress, representing her falling into the role of the golden child of Abuela.
2. Mirabel’s dress
Mirabel has a little from everyone. Starting from the basic design that is a white top and blue skirt just like Luisa, her skirt has teal for her mother and blue like her father.
Now to the details. Her dress has a candle and is full of butterflies, representing the miracle; the butterfly on her shoulder is the same colour as the flower on her father. She has embroidered flowers for Isabela, has a cloud for Pepa and a leopard for Antonio.
Camilo is wearing the colours of his family, but in contrast to all the men in the village who are wearing suits and shirts, Camilo is dressed like his tio Bruno.
Dolores is wearing a cute red pattern with a red bow, two things that only one other family member has - Luisa.
The little guy has a red scarf around his neck that is the same colour as his sister’s necklace.
At the end of the movie, when Isabela realises she can create more things than just roses, she changes her dress to dark blue - the colour of her father and Luisa, and she adds different colour patterns just like Mirabel.
hey guys, im probably over thinking this but i noticed this when i rewatched the breakfast scene in encanto
(also i just noticed that antonio is sharing his seat with a baby capybara, thats flipping adorable)
“i told them to warm up your seat”
so in the breakfast scene, antonio (the absolute sweetheart he is) tells abuela alma that he told a bunch of coati to sit in her chair in order to warm it up for her
now further into the movie when antonio invites bruno to do a vision in his room, there is also a bunch of coati in the spot bruno would be sitting
(they werent there when bruno was pouring out the sand to create the circle so they must have hopped into that spot after bruno passed chispi the capybara since bruno comes into the scene from the left after he completed the circle and put down the bucket)
do you think antonio told them to warm up that spot for bruno?
Mirabel with lo-fi girl vibes, sewing ruana for Bruno 🤧💛✨
Wonderful commission for @baby-prince-oppa, for which they made a magical playlist. Check it out here!
Antonio: I need you to check under my bed for monsters.
Bruno: Look, kid, I appreciate your confidence in me, but if there's a monster it's gonna kill us both.
These are technically unfinished... but I started work on these ages ago and college is kicking my ass so, rn I can't wait till it's all pretty to post-😭
Basically Bruno and Antonio being true Disney Princesses 👸👸
Inspired by this post by @tuherrus :)))
The idea was sooooo cute I had to draw it too!!!😭😭
Also, the little birdie Antonio has is a blue-naped chlorophonia, a bird native to Colombia 🐦🐦
