Maleficent Costumes

Who is Maleficent?

You've likely seen Maleficent's name on a movie poster, on the big screen, or at the story in the last few years, but she's been around for a lot longer than you may think, and now these classic Maleficent costumes are a wonderful way to get a magical outfit for Halloween! Her original costume is purple and black, while the new film has an almost fully black style. Maleficent Halloween costumes are a great way to make your Halloween wonderful!


Maleficent's name means “doing evil or harm,” and boy does she live up to the name. While she was based on the evil fairy from the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, her appearance in the 1959 Disney film “Sleeping Beauty” is what codified her look, style, and personality. When the king and queen fail to invite her to their child's christening, she flies into a rage and curses the child, saying she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die before the sun sets on Aurora's sixteenth birthday. She has power over magic, and can transform into a dragon. The character also appears as the title character in “Maleficent,” played by Angelina Jolie. The movie tells the story from her perspective, painting her as a tragic character who wants to protect the moors from the human kingdom, but is kind. She falls to evil as humans attack her, making her into the character from the original animated Disney film.
