Costume Information

Cost : would rather not think about it - lol
Time Taken : 4/3 months ish

i chose to do belle as my first cosplay simply because i love the dress and charater but for me i just wanted to put a new twist on the original - i really wanted a outfit that was beautiful and that i could get exited aqbout making.

the main idea of my cosplay was to create a costume that was'nt as sweet and innocent as the origanal and bring a more modern side to it , i started to play around with differnt materials and ideas , and went for a gothic/rock approch with black leather boots , black corset ect with symbolic features for example ruffles of the skirt and the detail in the top.

Materials of the costume consist of mainly cottern , silk and various netting and lace.With a bit of luck it will look ok in the end and will look ok.

This is a very interesting take on the character, so far it looks lovely. Looking forward to seeing the final product =]

looks awsome so far, are you going to cover it in blood like completely undead, you could use a actual real rose for it, looks cool cant wait to see it done xx

aww thanks guys so glad to here what you think - there totally awsome coments- dont be shy to give other comments , to be honest i need all the help i can get to get it the stage i want for the expo lol its really gonna take some time to get it finnished - ps i know im not done yet but how do i make the costume seem more undead/gothic without covering it all in blood as hopefully i would like to wear it again and again.- to make it seem more undead i will try to go ghostly white and go all out to zombify my make up do think that will be ok- :D BIG HUGS

i really wanna do the properversion when i abit more talented (Posted 19th April 2012)

i really wanna do the properversion when i abit more talented so keep a look out i love the gown , but i wasmy firstmade cosplay so all is well in time x

started skirt today (Posted 26th April 2011)

wow this is gonna take a looonnnggg time , im getting there tho , there is soo manylayers its gonna be quite hard to walk, so far i have compleated all the layers and finnished the waistband , its soo puffball princess i love it debating to put black lace over the top to make it seem more gothic now as it could make it kinda ott plus i love it the way it is - still need to so the ruffles in the skirt and then theres extra detailin the top i still have to do not to mention buying the rose - i think it could be cool if i turned it into a bracelet - i know me i will probably lose it otherwise - dies lol

yay finally got my netting (Posted 21st April 2011)

at long last i have my netting for the tu tu style half of the dress , i brought black,golden and lemon yellow netting so that it will be really puffball layered and can create many ruffles so that it will be slightly more like the origanal - yay for disney princesses - not long to go now but at least i can start !!!! hugs

just uploaded pictures from yesterdays photography (Posted 14th April 2011)

heya just uploaded pictures on to cosplay island soooo exited for the expo now , its unreal , need to get a move on tho. On tuesday i brought some netting black and a yellow/orange - got home but it looked way too tango for the outfit , so in the next few days i will be searching or shopping for a lighter yellow so that the skirt will be more ballenced and i dont look like i giant sugar puff.Lol

referance n research (Posted 13th April 2011)

hiiya today for my cosplay i decided to research other cosplay and my cosplay source so that i could work on getting my design closer to the original so that it would be easyer to work on to get it closer to belle , also i have taken a few pics of my work so far so that hopefully i can put them on the site - fingers cross :/ hugs

my first day on cosplay island (Posted 12th April 2011)

Today is my first time on cosplay Island with my first ever cosplay so far today my cosplay for a rock , undead belle is one step closer to finnishing i have brought the material for the skirt and now i can finnaly make the main part of the out fit, so far i have created the top half and brought a black corset to which i added silk sleaves and buttons ect i have also brought the hair bow aswell as black lace leggings with matching fingerless gloves , i already have the boots that i will wear on the day and so far its going well , however slightly nervous to whether the cosplay is good enough .
