Princess Aurora was the lovely girl born into a rivalry that she couldn't have prepared for. It resulted in her being sent away from her parents in a desperate attempt to shield her from harm. However rather than keep her safe, she would instead form a close and special bond with the one person she was supposed to be hiding from. Even when she discovered Maleficent's true identity she still remained kind and courageous, which is why she was eventually crowned Queen of the both human and faerie realms. Practice the poses that show her kindness as well as her royal status for a genuine Aurora look.
Remember, Aurora was born a princess so she was destined to one day attend a coronation of her own. What we didn't know was that she would not only be crowned as a ruler of the human realm, but as the faerie realm as well! This golden gown is fit for royalty and even includes a delicate golden crown adorned with leaves. No wonder Maleficent couldn't resist her sweetness, someone this kind can surely mend a broken heart like hers.
Get to know Maleficent and charm her as you do everyone else when you play the role of Princess Aurora. Although Maleficent initially resents the baby princess she cannot bring herself to let the baby be harmed by the fairies' negligence. From the time that Aurora is an infant until she grows into a beautiful, kind-hearted girl she is watched from a distance by her 'fairy godmother' and kept safe. In time she becomes the trusted friend of the person who has cursed her and eventually helps unite the human and fairy kingdoms.
If she wants to portray Maleficent in full-revenge mode then this Christening gown costume is the one she needs. This is what Maleficent wore when she crashed the party for baby Aurora and placed a curse on her that doomed her to fall into "a sleep like death" on her 16th birthday. Maleficent had her wings stolen, her heart broken and her kingdom attacked and she was convinced that the way to get her revenge was to threaten harm to the baby of the king who had wronged her.

Maleficent's infamous character made her big screen debut decades ago as the villain of the Disney movie Sleeping Beauty. She came and went in a cloud of eerie green smoke. She spoke to a raven whose intentions seemed as devious as her own. Unlike the 2014 film, the original Maleficent was portrayed as all evil with no redeeming morals or positive traits. She was content to be bad to everyone she came into contact with. So if you like the idea of being unapologetically awful then this is the right look for you.
