Maleficent Costume Ideas

Known as the mistress of all evil, Maleficent is the villain from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. When she is not invited to the christening of the kingdom’s new princess, Maleficent puts a curse on baby Aurora that destines her to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die unless true love’s kiss saves her. The Sleeping Beauty version of the character truly is the epitome of evil and does everything in her power to bring the kingdom down. However, the 2014 movie Maleficent, Disney’s live-action version of the story, paints the villain in a different light. The movie shows Maleficent’s backstory as a young fairy who gets her heart broken and wings cut off by the young King Stephan. For revenge, she casts her famous curse on Stephan’s daughter, the little Princess Aurora. Unexpectedly, Maleficent begins to care for Aurora and regrets her curse. This new version of events, expertly acted out by Angelina Jolie, was a hit at the box office and has transformed Maleficent into one of Disney’s best characters. Thanks to BuyCostumes, you can now become Maleficent and Princess Aurora with costumes inspired by the new live-action movie and the original animated tale.
