Cosplay: Sleeping Beauty – Princess Aurora
October 2, 2012
I’ll be honest. This could very well be a professional model posing in a wonderfully made Princess Aurora costume but that’s OK. I love this “cosplay” for so many reasons. I love the detail of the white underlining featured in some artistic interpretations of Princess Aurora and the two toned fabric detail at the top. I can’t say for sure (I’m around 80% sure) but this wig is perfectly stylized to Aurora’s whimsical do. There’s not much else to gush about. Stellar model. Stellar costume. Stellar photography. (Note: if anyone can tell me where this photo can be creditted to please leave me a comment, thanks)
I’m sure you don’t need to be told who Princess Aurora is. She as a character was pretty one-dimensional. If my memory is still intact I can probably say that Aurora’s redeeming qualities were that she was nice, she was pretty, and she sang well. I personally never liked the movie Sleeping Beauty. Although I was a sucker for anything Disney in my childhood Sleeping Beauty actually well… scared me. Malificent’s (SPOILER ALERT) transformation into the dragon gave me nightmares as a child. On top of lack of a complex storyline and old fashioned singing numbers (which I was less inclined to attempt to sing along to) it was a movie I watched maybe once or twice and then never turned to again. There’s a huge part of me that wants to go back into my own Disney vault and rewatch all the Disney classics but I feel like Sleeping Beauty will be pretty low on my list. Still though, I was like any other child and always wanted to be Princess Aurora for Halloween because she was the one who wore the pretty pink dress. So sue me.
