**02/05/11**
- Okay! So Garnet is too expensive to do this year so have decided to do Belle in her gold dress instead. I may see if I can have a group of princesses with me. (As Phee wants to try Ariel's pink dress). I'm getting this commissioned by Tab (Khaoscreator) and I really can't wait for it! I love Belle and as a kid I always wanted this dress.

My favourite princesses were Ariel and Belle but I wanted this dress most of all because I felt it was a dress made for a princess and I always wanted to be one XD I can't wait to feel so glamerous and hopefully I can have a prince =[ Only time and dreams will tell.

Whenever I watch the dance scene I always feel really lovesick and dreamy xD When I was a kid I wanted to be able to dance with someone like that so I can't wait to wear this dress

**20/06/11**
- Commissioned is all paid for! Although so far away this way my slot it confirmed. It's the most expensive dress I've ever bought @.@ Even my dream wedding dress doesn't cost this much! xD But at least now this is off my mind ^_^ So excited!

**18/07/11**
- Tab has sent me some swatches for my choice of materials :D It will be made out of Duchess Satin and the shade is absolutley perfect!

**25/08/11**
- Moving into progress as I want to get all the costumes I have things for complete! :D and this is also being cosplayed for my next upcoming event!

**20/10/11**
- Completed as everything's arrived and I'm in LOVE!!!!! :D! WOO!

**04/03/11**
- Added a video by Trinity Wisdom Studios :D I'm around 6:30 mins in x

Thank you for your kind comments! I had a lot of fun making this and I hope you have as much fun wearing it. Looking forward to playing about with the head piece, I've been experimenting with resin cast metals which may work for the gold.

BabemRoze posted on 27 September, 2011 - 20:55

Just to join in with the 'oooh' and 'ahhh' and 'SQUEEEEEEEE' love for the dress! Tab is a LEGEND!!! The dress is so perfect and definitely how I would see it if Belle came out of the TV screen and into the real world! I'm so saving up to talk to Tab for an Ariel commission!

Saw you at expo - you looked perfect! Belle is my favourite Disney character and you certainly did her justice :-D

BabemRoze posted on 10 November, 2011 - 21:20
Thank you so much everyone ^//^

CrystalNeko posted on 12 November, 2011 - 16:20
Tres belle *_* I'm still pretty blown away by how gorgeous this costume is, the amount of volume it has is just perfect!

Natsumi posted on 18 November, 2011 - 21:30
I remember being in awe of your costume at expo! It looks very well made and you look very beautiful in it aswell.

rosieroo posted on 19 November, 2011 - 11:43
EEEEEEP soo happy i got to meet you , you were soo sweet ^^

Manticore posted on 19 November, 2011 - 12:39
I've said this to Furie-Chan and i'm gonna say this to you love: one of the best Disney cosplayers I've seen in a long while as well. If there was an Elite four for it- you'd best believe you're up there. The best thing about is that you characterise her well, and I was whiteness to the dress in its full beauty whilst it was blowing in the breeze outside: simply stunning

BabemRoze posted on 19 November, 2011 - 16:15
Awww thank you!! You're all so lovely! :D xx

Plasticsharkattack posted on 26 November, 2011 - 00:53

Progress Journal

Petticoat, Back and Underskirts (Posted 22nd October 2011)

I wanted to show the other parts of this outfit :D so from left to right is the Petticoat (ITS HUGE!), the back with corset, and the underlayers to make it poofy! There's the petticoat, a white cottony layer, a gold netting and then the actual dress :D It's so poofy and amazing! I finally was able to get decent photos of this outfit thanks to Phee :D

Dress Arrived! (Posted 20th October 2011)

IT ARRIVED!!!!! OMG I love it so much. It's a bit of an effort to put on and VERY heavy. And I won't be able to pee in it XD But eep! I love itttttt :D Sorry for the bad quality photo. I had to take a photo on my phone of the photo on my camera coz I couldn't find the wire D< but woo!

Hairpiece by KhaosKreator! (Posted 19th October 2011)

It's complete!! AHH!! I sent Tab my hair extension and he's made my hairband! He's put it on a temp wig for now to demonstrate but AH! It's so gorgeous! He's going to ship it today so I'm so excited!!!! I really can't wait to get it and AHH! I'm gonna be hyper all day now XD

Make up Test 1 (Posted 9th October 2011)

So I'm REALLY not happy with how this turned out today D: Here are things I'm going to change.
- THINNER EYEBROWS!!! I'm waiting a couple of weeks before getting them threaded so they stay uber thin for expo. I'm plucking them atm but still. ugh.
- Thinner eyelashes! I don't want the drama queen eyelashes I have here XD SO I'm going to do a shopping spree to Boots to buy make up, eyelashes and god knows what else!
- Find my earrings! I want to test them with my Jessica Rabbit earrings because they're the same style. I gotta fnd them though and test them out.
- Poofier fringe D8 goddamit my fringe is flat and frail and ugh. So I'm gonna get some advice from my sister coz she's clever about hair and junk.
Aaaaaaaaand idk more I guess XD This must be perfect! Also I'm not naked XD I have a weird boob chubey thing on @_@ I wanted the bare neck her dress would give me xD

Shoes and other malarky! (Posted 7th October 2011)

YAY SHOES!! :D Obviously in the costume you never see her shoes @_@ so I had to guess. And I didn't want anything too high to hurt my feet so I was looking eeeeeeeverywhere for a pair of low gold heels. And I NEVER found any. BUT thanks to the wonderful Phee she found some in like two seconds D: Idk how. So now I have EVERYTHING bought for the costume! Tab needs to finish a little bit of the dress and I need to send him my hair extension so he can do the hair band. It arrived today and omg the extension is perfect!! It looks JUST like her hair! :D :D! EEEE!! I want to buy a rose as well and then that's everything in ALL bought!! Yay!!!! I'm so excited for expo now!!! AHHHH!!!!

New Hair Extension (Posted 5th October 2011)

I think I prefered the other one's style to this one but the other one wasnt actually a proper clip on. It has some weird slider thing but my hair's to thick for it. So! I've bought this one =D I'll experiement with both so it's a bit of a pain but I can use either of them for all sorts of things ^^ so I'm not too fussed about the extra spendings

Dress by KhaosKreator! x (Posted 25th September 2011)

I'm IN LOVE with this dress! SO much! Omg. I'm so excited to put in on!! I'm so excited about everything! I love how the dress is..lifelike. If that makes sense! It's like as if she were a real person this is what the dress would have been like :D lol! I can't WAIT for expo now! EEEEEEE!!!! I can't thank Tab enough! He's done an amazing job!! :D!!!! AAHHHH!!!

Hair Extension (Posted 20th September 2011)

Hair Extension for the hair! :D I hope it's not too long but I do hope it'll be nice and thick for the ponytail as even though my hair is naturally long it's not as yummy as this extension xD As soon as it arrives and I'm happy with it I'll be sending it to Tab so he can make the hairband :D

Mock up top by Tab (Posted 11th September 2011)

So the mock up arrived :D I was able to try it on with the help of my mum but I think we've put it on wonky xD and it's given me the worse flab at the side of the boobs but hopefully the "sleeves" Belle has will cover that for the real thing. If not...I'll diet like i've never dieted before! I like it over and it's length is really nice too so I'm really looking forward to the real thing!
