In 1959, Disney’s rendition of Sleeping Beauty introduced a villain so mean, hateful, and unrepentant that it was impossible not to instantly fall under her spell. This fairy godmother-turned sorceress labeled herself as the Mistress of Evil, and cursed the infant princess of the realm after her parents failed to invite her to the royal christening.
There were no highlights of her life, no longing thoughts of adoration for the princess, nor any repentance for her wickedness. However, with each retelling of the classic tale, plot lines change. The latest version portrayed Maleficent as a misunderstood, heartbroken, and abused fairy with a score to settle. In true Hollywood style, the delicious unyielding evilness was traded for a smooth happily ever after. But fans of the movie will agree it was still quite entertaining.
With Halloween right around the corner, adults can enjoy recapturing the wicked brilliance of their favorite scorned fairy. How? By wearing Maleficent’s stunning christening gown to their favorite costume-required gatherings, of course. This hand washable dress is made of 100% polyester. The bell sleeves, shimmering brooch, and dramatic shoulders will keep eyes on you all night just to make sure you’re behaving.
A stuffed version of Maleficent’s horned headpiece is included in the ensemble. Some concerns include issues regarding twisted horns in the turban and improper sizing. The dress tends to run small, so consider ordering at least one higher than your normal size. Also the arms are slit underneath instead of one piece. It still works perfectly for the costume party rounds. Be sure to order the staff separately as that is not included in the set.
