|Time Taken :||2 days|
- London MCM Expo Saturday 24th October 2009
Belle is my favourite Disney Princess - in fact, she's just my favourite Disney character full stop, and she always has been. As such, she holds a special place in my heart!
I always put this costume off for various reasons, but after seeing the perfect shade of blue fabric on a trip to the fabric shop, I decided that it was the prompt I needed, and it was about time I got round to cosplaying Belle in her peasant dress. I would love to make her ballgown one day, but right now I would like a simple, comfy cosplay to wear for times when I don't feel like putting on a big costume. :)
This costume was really easy to make; the dress and shirt were made in a single evening, and the apron was made the following day. I already owned the shoes, book and basket, and I didn't bother with a wig because I have natural brown curly hair which is the same length as Belle's. I may buy a wig in future, though, as I didn't really have time to buy one for the first con I wore this cosplay to.
All in all, I really enjoyed being Belle, and hope to wear her a lot more!
