Opinion on Aurora's dress

I want to make Aurora's princess dress -- as I'm sure y'all know it's always depicted as pink, but Merriwether constantly changes it in the movie back to blue. I actually like the blue version a lot better than the pink one, and I was just wondering what you guys would think if you saw an Aurora with a blue dress? Especially in costumes that I've seen with the blue dress...it really looks like Cinderella. (It might have been the colour blue that said costumes were made of, I'm not sure.) But, yes or no? Do you think people wouldn't get it?

It's highly talked about in Disney circles, so I think at least Disney fans will understand that the movie version is blue. I was having this same debate with myself as I'm considering cosplaying Annie Leonhardt as Aurora. I still haven't decided if I'm going through with the cosplay but if I do, I'll be making it blue.

I'm not involved in the Disney circles, but when I google "Aurora dress sleeping beauty," at least a third of the pictures that come up are blue. I would imagine that only the uninformed might try to hassle you for your color choice, which makes them look bad, not you.

Disney likes to promote pink in their merchandise because marketing believes it'll appeal to little girls better, but the two cosplayers I can think of who have done the dress have both done it in blue. Heck, the one that comes to my mind when I think of Aurora is the blue version.

I think it's to differentiate her from Cinderella.

A number of women dressed as Cinderella now get called Elsa after all so it's almost certainly to keep the two blonde princesses clearly different.

So do be prepared to be called Elsa or Cinderella and just enjoy your gown
