Sleeping Beauty costumes are for girls of all ages who believe that fairy tales can come true. This children's story by the Brother Grimm is about a beautiful young princess named Aurora who has a spell put on her by an evil witch disguised as a fairy godmother. The spell was that Aurora would prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. However, one of the good fairies was able to lessen the curse so that Aurora would fall asleep for 100 years. Eventually, a handsome prince heard of the enchantment and found his way to the castle. He saw Sleeping Beauty and was so taken by her beauty that he knelt down to kiss her, bringing her back to life. Now what girl (or woman) wouldn't want to be Princess Aurora and be kissed by a handsome prince?
The classic Sleeping Beauty costume is a two toned pink gown that comes in sizes for toddlers all the way up to women. It has white, off the shoulder cap sleeves, a fitted bodice and a flared gown. The style that we most often recognize as Princess Aurora is the one created by Walt Disney in their animated adaptation of the story. When you see the Disney movie or go to the theme park, you will see Sleeping Beauty in all her glory. Now your or your child can have an official princess dress just like it that you can wear for Halloween or for that special trip to the Magic Kingdom.
