Beauty and the Beast

Cosplayer: eternal_aranel

Variant: Green dress

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

8th September 2011: Bodice detail Not sure about this....I added ribbon to the edges, but its a tad thick, so I have folded in over on itself on one pic and left it unaltered in the other
Obviously it would be neater if I did it for real XDDD
Sit alot better at the bottom when folded over....but I don't know I like the thick effect....Thoughts?

7th September 2011: hair and make up test Why can I style gravity defying wigs awesomely yet can't make my own hair do what I want??! O_o

I don't suit her at all!!!!! OTZ
Oh well, at least it just for a small meet of friends and not a big deal :)

Weird to see my natural eye colour for once XD

6th September 2011: Skirt fin ished Wasitband added and lining added!
The lining really gave it extra volume! So it poofs out at the waist like hers does!
I was thinking I was going o have to wear some sort of peticoat, but this skirt shapes itself xD Epic XD
Bodice still incomplete.

5th September 2011: bodice 2 That's the basic shape done! Just need the white detailing and tidying up
Added a zipper to the back. Working on sleeves now.
Never made anything like this before but I think its going okay

5th September 2011: bodice This is my pattern for the bodice.
I never used a pattern before xD usually I just make it up as I go along XD
Just an old top cut up
Cutting the dark green out now

5th September 2011: skirt
Made from a pale green cotton. All pinned atm. Needs lining.
My phone camera doesn't do tje colour justice. Its lovely

I've actually never seen this version cosplayed so it'll be wonderful to witness - you will suit her so so well! ^^ - and seriously the more darker toned Princess/heroins really need more love x

Thanks everyone :D Sorry for my rant in the info XD haha
Also @Pandora: YES! Its so true! I wish I could give them love but my pale skin cries otherwise! I still might sneakily cosplay Kida though and damn everyone! XD

looks great so far, belle is my fave princess :). also you could just use body paint if you do a darker skinned princess. i have the problem of being albino white so i have to fake tan/ use body paint for a lot of my costumes

Beautiful progress already! You're right she is a popular cosplay but excellent choice of dress, you'll make a wonderful Belle ^_^

I wasn't near as tanned as Esmeralda but I still cosplayed her anyways XD so I say, please do Kida!! You'll look damn amazing as her!! I can guarantee it despite skin colour :D Also you made this cosplay really fast and really am excited to see the finished outcome :) x

Cute ^^ and accurate 8D you suit her much ^^

I think you suit her! You might find there would be a greater likeness if you filled in your eyebrows a little more along their entire length (judging by the photos, might be they look different IRL), right now they seem to be styled fairly slim with a small enlarged inner corner, whereas Belle's has a softer gradient from medium inner corner to slim outer corner. If that makes any sense. o_o It's nitpicking though. I like the look of the dress and make-up so far, and the fact that you picked the green one!! :D

Thanks everyone!
@Adamoluna: Yea I was just flicking back between the photos and I agree
My eyebrows are styles in a curve though whereas Bells (at least in one of my refs, the close face one) are pretty straight,so it might be a bit diffcult to do but I'll have a better go at it on the day. I already filled them out a little bit as well with pencil xD I have really thin eyebrows from the last time I had to cosplay someone with light hair XD

So stunning! Loving the progress so far x.

progress looks stunning! I think for the ribbon you should do a mix of thick and thin. Thin at the bottom but thicker at the top?
