How to Dress like Disney's Maleficent (Kids and Teens)

If your daughter loved the classic Sleeping Beauty movie by Disney or the new Maleficent movie, then why not suggest dressing up as the daunting but beautiful Maleficent this Halloween? It's an iconic look that is sure to make her stand out from all the bog standard witches and sorceresses out there!

If that sounds like fun, you'll need to pick out one of the two cute Maleficent costumes featured on the right and up above. They are both very unique looking and despite being in slightly different styles both very evocative of both depictions of Maleficent. The one above comes with the dress, a detachable brooch and the matching horns, while the one on the right includes the dress and brooch.

There are plenty of accessories which you can use to finish off your Maleficent costume too. Her gorgeous staff, which you can see in the picture to the right, is available here. You can get matching Maleficent gloves here, and if you are going for Maleficent before she loses her wings, you can find some beautiful black feathery wings here. I also think it is a cute idea to have a plush crow toy or a funger puppet like the one on the left to represent Diablo, Maleficent's trusted servant and spy (and awesome fiery dragon in the re-imagining!). With that done, all you need is some scary makeup (the tutorial below works very well for both versions of Maleficent) and you'll be good to go!

So there you have it! That's my mini guide for kids and teens to dress up as Maleficent. I hope you found everything that you need and that she has a great time trick-or-treating!
