Young Maleficent Costume

Quick post today for those who have a daughter like mine who always comes up with the hardest to find or most unique characters to be. By no stretch of the imagination is Maleficent a unique costume this year- one of the reasons finding horns was close to impossible- they are sold out everywhere. Bekah, however, did not want the run-of-the-mill black costume set. She waned to be the young Maleficent, and was so clear on that point that she said that she would pick something else before going with the older version in black. So if you are looking for a quick link list on how to get this look before Halloween, here it is (having Amazon Prime is highly recommended):
  • Dress (will be sewn to create an umpire waist dress, but could be  modified quickly without sewing)
  • Horns (will be spray painted brown)
  • Wings (brown fabric cape could be added to make them look more substantial)
  • Tights 
  • Ears (if you can't get them locally- remember the spirit gum if you don't have some at home)
  • Sheet of faux leather to make pouch and jewelry (Joann Fabrics)
  • Wood or glass beads for jewelry (Joann Fabrics)
  • Brown shoes of your choice
I'll post the final product with photos and how I achieved the total look after Halloween, but hopefully this post will help another scrambling parent out there :)

Have an inspired day!
