The Crossroads of the Aether
Maleficent /məˈlɛfɪsənt/ is a fictional character from Walt Disney's 1959 film Sleeping Beauty, and all other associated media.
She is the (self-proclaimed) Mistress of All Evil, who, after not being invited to a royal christening, curses the infant Princess Aurora to "prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die" before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday.
The character is Disney's version of the wicked fairy godmother from the original French fairy tale, loosely based on Carabosse from Tchaikovsky's famous ballet.
She was first voiced by Eleanor Audley in the 1959 film. Maleficent also plays a major role as a recurring villain in the Kingdom Hearts series of role-playing video games and is the primary character in the 2014 live-action film of the same name, portrayed by Angelina Jolie.

Maleficent from SLEEPING BEAUTY
She gets a little too wound up over not being invited to a party.
Talk about self-confidence. Maleficent exudes a self-confidence most little girls can only marvel at. Most of the movie is about her anyway because the sissy Aurora girl is asleep for most of it. Like her compatriots in the world of Disney villains, Maleficent is an unmarried professional woman (yes, being a sorceress is a profession). While the little princesses are falling in love with men they’ve never met before, Maleficent is doing magic. And she looks AMAZING doing it.
According to Deviant Art user Claire Hummel a.k.a. *shoomlah...
God, I love dagged sleeves. Almost as much as I love slashed ones. I just want to dag and slash everything I can get my hands on.
I've wanted Maleficent to be the first villain in the series for a while now, ever since I made the mental leap between Maleficent's horns and 15th century horned hennins.
The time period works out pretty well, actually, since I wanted her to look a little more dated than Aurora's 1480's getup- both houppelandes and horned hennins were all the rage during the early- to mid-1400's, and they make for pretty good analogues to her official costuming. Sexy stuff.
This proves more than any of the previous pieces that these are adaptations, not improvements. I mean, look at the original Maleficent design- how does one improve on PERFECTION
