Maleficent Halloween Costume Ideas
If your a fan of Disney's 2014 dark fantasy film, "Maleficent" then you might want to consider the Maleficent costume for Halloween. It's a fun costume for females of all ages. Here's how to put it together:
The main piece of clothing that you will need is a polyester black dress with bell sleeves. If you can make it a black christening gown, that is even better. You will also need black sculpted shoulder pads to make your shoulders look more extravagant. The neckline area just above the chest of the dress or gown should have a black and white spotted brooch. This can be a detachable ornament that you put on your neckline.
The footwear should consist of high heeled black leather shoes. For the head, you will need a headband which has two black horns sticking out of it. Either that or you can wear a customized hat which has two horns sticking out. The main accessory that will complete the costume is the black staff that Maleficent holds in her hand. This staff is about 56 inches long and contains a blue and green orb on the top. If you can find a staff which has an illuminating orb, then it will be better.
So far, you have the essentials for the Maleficent costume. But there are additions and alterations you can make, depending on the exact look you want. For example, since Maleficent is supposed to be a fairy, you could wear some black wings on the back of your dress. And if you don't like a dress that is too wide on the bottom, go with a black skirt instead. Some versions of the costume may mix black and purple together. Try any of those and have fun with it.
