Princess Aurora, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. You have great hair, are always surrounded by friends, and are a total treehugger. Just say no to that poisoned apple and yes to Halloween costume DIY’s, ’cause we’ve already tried out some Disney princesses, and this is one of our faves. For this particular Sleeping Beauty costume, we picked the woodland casual (is wood-leisure a thing?!) Briar Rose outfit. Scroll on for instructions on getting the look.
We dressed B+C staff photographer Brittany in a ToBeInStyle Long-Sleeve Gray Shirt ($11) with a tucked-in SDS Fake White Collar ($18) and a black Chicastic Corset ($30), all from Amazon. The corset is lined with some sequin ribbon to give it a little personalization and sparkle. Buy a gray Afibi Long Pleated Skirt ($19) and a Grimm Beauty Long Blonde Wig ($39), then wrap a wide strip of fabric around your arms as Briar Rose’s shawl and make sure to carry a wicker basket. Briar Rose doesn’t wear shoes while walking in the woods, but if you’ll be walking a lot on Halloween night, we suggest wearing some nude or black flats.
Sleeping Beauty Makeup: Apply a smokey cat eye using a dark black eyeshadow and false eyelashes. Add a bright pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, highlighter on the upper cheekbones, and a bright pink lipstick on your pout.
Sleeping Beauty Hair: Wrap a black tie around the wig and then fluff the curls. Set with a few spritzes of hairspray.
