Tawnya is absolutely obsessed with Halloween. Everyone flocks to her for costume ideas for kids, adults, and even dogs.


Maleficent had Beautiful Dark Fairy Wings

With the success of Disney's Maleficent, you can expect to see lots of little girls, tweens, and even some grown-ups showing off their favorite Maleficent Halloween costumes this year. To create the very best Maleficent costume, you are going to need a pair of fairy wings and not just any fairy wings will do. After all, Maleficent's wings play an instrumental part in the movie and are the reason Maleficent went from the sweet fairy she was as a little girl to the vengeful fairy she became later in the film. For this reason, you will need dark fairy wings to complete your Maleficent costume.

Maleficent Dark Fairy Wings

I have been looking for a pair of dark fairy wings for my daughter who is a huge fan of Maleficent. I was surprised that it was incredibly easy to find black fairy wings. I remember once when she was young, we created a vampire fairy costume, and I had to spray paint purple fairy wings black to get the right look. These wings feature two shoulder straps which make them easy to wear and are made of a material that is comfortable to wear near the body. With these dark fairy wings, you will be able to let your imagination run wild and create a villainous homemade or DIY costume.

Create a DIY Maleficent Costume

There are several Maleficent costumes on the market. However, if these costumes don't fit your fancy, you can create a custom look by choosing these black fairy wings, a staff, and horns, of course. As a huge fan of Disney villains, especially Maleficent, and Halloween, I can't wait to see all the creative costumes that pop up this year.

What this means is dark fairy wings are perfect for a Maleficent costume and can be used for months after as dress-up. Costumes that would benefit from black wings include:

  • Bats
  • Crows
  • Dark fairies
  • Birds
