Princess Aurora - Sleeping Beauty by FireLilyCosplay Princess Aurora - Sleeping Beauty by FireLilyCosplay

Costume made and worn by me

I have been wanting to make this costume forever!!!!!!! And I finally did <3

Dress is made using satin, stretch satin, satin taffeta, and Peau de Soie. I really liked the idea Pikmin Link and several other cosplayers had about making the sleeves out of stretch material for a closer fit. I also made a corset of satin taffeta, gold flossing, and 26 steel bones to obtain a cinched waist and get a better shape for the costume. The bodice looks a little wrinkly, but that's because it is very form fitting.

The petticoat is blue organza ruffles with a white cotton overlay. I made the crown and necklace out of Wonderflex and craft foam. I already owned the shoes and the wig and just touched up on the styling. A big thank you goes to Allen Gale for the idea of underarm gussets - it definitely helped my arm mobility!

As far as the Disney Effect goes, it showed up in spades! I was ambushed by a class of high school freshmen on a field trip, got pics with two drunk wedding attendees, and one of the drunk guys snatched my crown straight off my head and put it on for our picture!! Being a Disney Princess is hard work!!

Wow!   I was mainly looking at Maleficent artwork and costumes, and came across this.   I couldn't help but notice the fantastic work you have done on your Aurora costume.   This is perhaps the nicest one I have seen yet.  Many I have seen come up short somewhere, but you are spot on.  Very beautiful :).   And in Sleeping Beauty I did prefer Aurora in BLUE rather than pink.

Now I am back to searching for my evil mistress, Maleficent.

You're Welcome.

Of course there are those that will have the never ending debate:

I like it BLUE
No, Make it PINK
No, Make it BLUE.

And so on and so forth through the end credits of Sleeping Beauty, that dress keeps changing color.  LOL!

I'm making a pink version but I'm stuck with the white part. What type of fabric did you use?

Hey, I am hoping to make a blue Aurora dress for my 21st in March, just wondering did you use a specific pattern for this? If you don't want to say I completely understand! This is the best Aurora cosplay dress I've seen.

I used several different pattern to make up this dress, so it's hard to specifically point out one that would work well for you.  I'm actually going to be opening up commissions for Aurora gowns pretty soon - if you are interested, you can always contact me :)

This is a beautiful cosplay of Aurora :) I love the overall costume! You are a talented person. Quick question; was your skirt a circle skirt and how many gores did you make for the skirt?

I guess you haven't watched that episode of "Once Upon A Time" yet :D The needle spindle is quite sharp and would be easy enough to introduce a toxin into the bloodstream via pricking a finger. Although why they decided to use a spinning wheel is a little beyond me - the original story doesn't seem to justify/explain the use of a spinning wheel for the delivery of the spell very adequately.

I actually am going to try and make this outfit for my graduation dress as well as a future cosplay, the thing is I've never sewn anything like Aurora's dress before.
Can you tell me how you made the pattern for it? Did you even make a pattern? D:

FireLilyCosplay Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you! I used several different commercial patterns to make the dress by combining the elements I wanted, though the shoulder line was patterned by hand. Just find the patterns that works best for you (I have tons of patterns because I kinda collect them, so I had a lot to choose from).

Thank you, and I so agree. Aurora wears the blue dress during the majority of the movie and I hate that Disney uses pink just to market to girls.

I used interfacing to stiffen the fabric. It's sewn onto the neckline.
