I've always liked Disney's Sleeping Beauty, because it was made before kids' movies had to be "kid-friendly" and is genuinely a bit dark and creepy. (And obviously as a Kindergarten teacher I approve of kids' movies that leave the children just that little bit traumatized after-- it builds character.) Another thing that makes Sleeping Beauty a classic to me is Maleficent, the evil witch who is one of Disney's more memorable villains.
I've had the idea for my own version of a Maleficent costume in the back of my head for awhile, so that was my choice for this year's Halloween. I was pretty excited about the chance to celebrate here in Tokyo, and the weekend definitely lived up to expectations.
