How to Dress up as Maleficent (Disney's Sleeping Beauty)

This post is in anticipation of the upcoming Disney movie Maleficent, featuring the villainess from Disney's Sleeping Beauty as the main character in a re-imagining of the classic fairy tale. Maleficent is one of my favorite movie villains: she scary, stylish, and if you get on her bad side, she'll curse you or turn into a dragon and flat out eat you. Brr. She's also really fun to dress up as for Halloween or any villains themed party, so here's some of my favorite Maleficent costumes. If you are shopping from the UK or EU, you can find Maleficent costumes here.

First up is the slinky velvet look black costume above which looks to recreate her outfit from the original Sleeping Beauty movie. This costume comes with everything you see in the picture (aside from the raven - you'll have to catch one yourself!); the dress, the headpiece and the collar.

If you want the original animated movie look with a bit more of a fiery punch, take a look at the beautiful, mysterious and yet terrifying costume on the right. Each costume comes with the amazing dress, collar necklace and horned headpiece.

If you want to try a different look, costumes already exist in the style of Angelina Jolie's depicting of Maleficent in the live-action movie. On the left is the most true-to-the-source-material costume that I've discovered (it looks soooo good!). 

So there you have it, my favorite Maleficent costumes - hope you found one that you liked, and have a lot of fun dressing up.
