[Fairy Tale Characters, Hogwarts Style] Aurora Aesthetic

If the princess called the Sleeping Beauty were a Gryffindor, she would be best represented by pink roses, for affection. She is warm, charming, bold, and flirtatious, and when her parents finally feel comfortable enough to throw a big birthday party for her sweet 16th, she is the belle of the ball and loves every minute of it. She’s utterly fearless – so much so that she eagerly tries her hand at the spinning wheel without a second thought.

If the princess called the Sleeping Beauty were a Hufflepuff, she would be best represented by white roses, for innocence. She is sweet, quiet, modest, and gentle, making friendships wherever she goes and charming perfect strangers. She yearns for a romance like the ones she’s read about in her fairy tale books, but is unaware of the macabre fate assigned to her that may put that dream in jeopardy.

If the princess called the Sleeping Beauty were a Ravenclaw, she would be best represented by purple roses, for enchantment. She is dreamy, artistic, eccentric, and eternally curious, her lips always dusted with a question and her eyes as bright as stars. She has wondered her entire life why her parents keep her locked up in the castle, but know it would be insensible to keep asking when it upsets them so much and they never answer her anyway…if only she had forced the issue…

If the princess called the Sleeping Beauty were a Slytherin, she would be best represented by orange roses, for desire. She is confident, determined, witty, and full of wanderlust, constantly looking out at the horizon and scheming up adventures she’ll go on once she’s free of her parents’ overbearing influence. When her parents throw a large party to celebrate her 16th birthday, she is less interested in socializing and more interested in exploring the parts of the castle that were forbidden to her in the past…including an abandoned old tower taller than the rest.

(FAIRYTALE AESTHETICS) - Swan Lake

‘Swan Lake is one of those grand, beautiful pieces. This is what you think of when you think of classical ballet. It’s a fairy tale, really, with all the great themes of good verses evil, the search for true love, treachery and deceit, and how the power of magic may be great, but it’s no match for the power of two lovers meant to be together!’. - Tyson Compton
