Briar Rose (Princess Aurora) has always been one of my favorite princesses when I was growing up. There was just something about her that I absolutely loved.
The costume is made from a mixture of different materials to give a more natural look as well as try to stay true to the actual outfit. Her hair was a different story since getting that one distinct curl took a bit of trial and error, but I love how it came out.

For this dress I really wanted to give a very soft color to Cinderella’s dress since it goes from being a blue to a silver color very quickly in the movie. I used a lot of materials in layers to give this illusion as well as accent them with heavy crystal trims for some glitz. As an added bonus I added lights throughout her bodice and part of her skirt!
