And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love's kiss, the spell shall break.

Vol 3. in the Disney Collections.
 
*Unsatisfied with the imense amount of Disney princess inspired collections, I finally have decided to embark on my own. All will be Disney based, and after the first 11 official princesses I plan on doing more characters. Inspiration was drawn from the style of the film, the personality of the character, and the time period in which it was /made/.
 
I can not neatly describe my ideas behind Aurora's wardrobe. I turns out she and her alias Briar are not easy to dress. Not only have I not seen the movie in forever, but it does not lend it self so easily into it's time period--the late 50s. She certainly is not an Atomic Age bell of the ball like her pal Cindy, but she doesn't quite verge into early 60s Jackie Mad Men style either [when on the cusp, it can fling either way. Check 1999 fashion. More on that later. With Mulan. Basically.] In fact, I kept picturing her in the prarie-esque early 70s, post hippie attire complete with a macrame owl collection. But then I decided that would be hideous. Her sex appeal, I decided too, is more demure, more of a school girl and not at all like Delores Hayes [although wouldn't it be novel if someone made a Lolita inspired collection without the use of a single pastel, platform shoe, lacy panty, or heart-shaped glasses? Someone please accept this challenge, preferably someone who's read the book.(Have I ever mentioned I HATE Delores Hayes.)], more of a london prep kinda thing. This all combusted in my head, swam around in a vat of purple and magenta dye [all organically made. Aurora is into organic BS. I also decided.], and...tada. I hope.

It suddenly became very clear to me that if she was real and alive today she would only wear Chanel.
