Belle (Ballgown) - Beauty and the Beast


Amecon 2010


This is a remake of a cosplay that i made before I started cosplaying. I will need to remake the skirt and recover the corset but will be reusing the gloves, petticoat and earrings. It's just originally I made it from polycotton o_O i think it's time to make it out of a a more suitable fabric :P

Cream shoes £3.50 - will be dying them yellow :)
Yellow shoe dye: £5.98 (tarrago colour 7)

***UPDATE 9/9/2010***
Back from ame and the dress survived - needs a bit of a wash but am very happy as the fabric I ordered before I went has turned up so I will be:

> Ordering the correct colour gloves
> Remaking corset
> Remaking earrings
> Remaking Beading work

Shouldn't take more then a days worth of work so hopefully I can get pictures up soon :D

Update: 7/4/16
I left this as in progress because I always wanted to update this outfit. Make a new corset and actually wear a wig. Unfortunately I don't think I will get to do this so think this is as complete as I think I can.

Amecon will have to play "Beauty & the Beasdt" song in the ball if you manage to get this done. XD Can't wait to see it.

I know I was very suprised - I was thinking it would take four or five coats to make it look that bright :S
