How to Dress Up as Princess Aurora (Disney's Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent)

Sassy Disney Aurora Prestige Adult Costume
For all you girls out there who need your beauty sleep, why not go all the way and dress up as Sleeping Beauty for Halloween or your next costume party? There are lots of truly breath-taking costumes for you to choose from, and I'm going to show you some of my favorites, as well as some matching accessories to go with them, right here. Let's get started! If you are shopping from the UK or EU, you can find Princess Aurora costumes here.

Aurora Sleeping Beauty Costume
First of all, there are a number of different looks you can go for if you are dressing up as the original Princess Aurora or Briar Rose from the animated Disney movie (see below if you are looking for the Maleficent look!). If short and sassy is your thing, then you might like to check out the shimmering Sassy Prestige Aurora costume featured at the top of this post. Each set comes with the amazing dress, a petticoat to give the skirt some lift, a pair of glovelettes, a choker, and the matching headband.

If, on the other hand, you want to stay as close as possible to the source material, take a look at the ankle length Sleeping Beauty gown on the right. It's truly gorgeous! You also get a matching choker and the tiara with this cute costume set.

For something that combines the best of both worlds, I'd like to recommend the stunning DreamGirl Sleeping Princess costume on the left, which has a really unique and interesting looking asymmetrical skirt and lovely puffy sheer sleeves. You even get the matching crown headpiece with each set.

You can finish off the look of all three of these beautiful costume with a cute Aurora wig in the style of the original movie's golden locks - you can find a perfect one here!

Disney Maleficient Aurora Coronation Gown Womens Costume deluxe
If you are looking to dress up as Princess Aurora from Maleficent rather than the original, you can achieve the look with amazing golden ball gown costume above. I love the rose pattern on the skirt! This costume comes with both the dress and the beautiful gold leaf wreath headpiece. You can get some beautiful matching sparkling shoes to go with it here.

Disguise Disney Maleficent Aurora Wig
Top off the costume with the wig on the right if you don't already have long blond hair. If you do, then just style your hair with curls! If you are looking for some cute ideas to finish off the look, here is a great tutorial on how to do Princess Aurora's makeup which would work for both iterations of Sleeping Beauty.

So there you have it! My favorite costumes for dressing up as Sleeping Beauty, both in her original form and her re-imagining in Maleficent. I hope you found one that is perfect for you and have a lot of fun dressing up! If you liked this post, be sure to check out the rest of this blog for even more costume ideas for women!
