Cinderella's ball dress
"The butterflies…[were] one of my very first ideas before I even knew what sort of dress it was going to be. I was thinking about how the transformation scene would happen, even though it's a visual effect, of course. I was thinking, 'Well, what would make sense and if there was some decoration what would it be?' And I kind of thought of flowers, then I thought, 'I don't want to do flowers.' And then I thought about how Cinderella is one with nature, her friends are the creatures and it would be quite nice if the creatures helped make that dress as it were. So, I just had this notion of the butterfly landing on her and then turning into the decoration. And then afterwards they would fly away. And that sort of ended up happening really."
