The Orchid Monster
If Disney is in dire need of a new character, Maria is an Instagram DM away. On her Instagram, Maria composed a poem-like caption with information about the existence of this creature, the orchid beast. She describes it as an eerily beautiful, strange, and frightening creature.
To create this stunningly mystical piece, Maria craftily combines various colorful flowers and petals of roses, amaryllis, and red tulips on her skin. She also painted her skin with the perfect shade of blush red to not only compliment the arrangement of flowers but also serve as the perfect canvas. Her matching lipstick and flower cap provide yet another view of the subtle human nature, making the ‘Orchid Monster’ piece eery and alluring.
