Maleficent is one of the coolest Disney villains, hands-down. (She originally could turn into a dragon, after all!) If you’re looking to be chillin’ like a villain this Halloween, we highly recommend Maleficent. You know that you look great in black! The 2014 Maleficent movie isn't the only place we've ever seen this awesomely evil character. There's the classic 1959 animated Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. And in between the two releases there have been many costumes inspired by her character. Disney’s Sleeping Beauty from 1959 is a wonder of traditional animation, and it’s still great to watch today. 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. Maleficent’s horned headpiece and high collar are iconic, and dare we say, she’s quite a fashionable villain. 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. For more ways to become the Mistress of Evil, check out these Maleficent Halloween costumes so you’re ready to join any Disney villain group. Whether you want to be as scary as the original or be stunning in a more form fitting black gown there's a look that matches your personal brand of being bad.

You might come to regret it years later when you realize that you are completely in love with that little girl, but for now it sure will feel great to let your wrath be felt!

Maleficent and Aurora
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, she would instead form a close and special bond with the one person she was supposed to be hiding from. 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. Even when she discovered Maleficent's true identity she still remained kind and courageous. 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! No wonder Maleficent couldn't resist her sweetness, someone this kind can surely mend a broken heart like hers.
Maleficent Costume for Girls
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.
"Before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she will fall asleep into a sleep-like death!"
"I had wings once, and they were strong. But they were stolen from me."
"Touch the spindle. Touch it I say!"
"You poor simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me. Me! The mistress of all evil!"
"I must say, I really felt quite distressed at not receiving an invitation."
"I hate you, beasty."
"I shall bestow a gift on the child."
