Belle reading by MandyNeko Belle reading by MandyNeko
Really nice photo of my Belle cosplay taken by SkyPirate ([link]) at the October photoshoot.

I think this picture turned out really nice with the colors of the garden and the blue dress.

Belle has always been my favorite of the Disney girls, and it's fun getting to cosplay her. I plan to wear this costume for a Tex-Plex Cosplay community service project at a local children's hospital soon, and I hope it gets a good response from the kids.

I'm very happy that so many people have favorited this picture! I really appreciate all the views, comments, and favorites you've left. :)

I like your costume, you make a great Belle. I will make her to in the future and she is also one on my fave Disney Princess along with the other Princesses.

Forget the gold ballgown. My love will always be the blue peasant dress. :)

As lovely as you are as Belle...you need to dress up as Arwen from Lord of the Rings...you look SO much like Liv Tyler!!! :D GORGEOUS!

MandyNeko Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
Haha, I either get Liv or Anne Hathaway. Very weird! ;)

Maybe someday I will make an Arwen dress. Don't know which one though, they are all so pretty!

The closest I have on deck right now is Princess Zelda... provided I get *her* finished up, maybe an Arwen...

did you have a pattern? I really want to make my own, but i don't know where to start. Got any tips?
Reply
:iconmandyneko:
MandyNeko Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010
I put a couple of patterns together - basically a bodice, a skirt... I used a Colonial America pattern for the shirt, but I modified it a bit. The apron was just one of the skirt pieces sewn to a long strip.

Hope this helps!

Belle's my favorite too. i've always loved Belle in her blue peasent outfit more than her ballgown since she looks more like a regular person. there's not really anything to improve on since you look more like Belle than the Belle's at D-land.

You make a beautiful Belle, I'm very impressed by the similarity you bear to her ^^

Love the pose as well, very true to her nature! If they ever make a liveaction remake of Beauty and the Beast, I'll vote for you as Belle! x3

Thanks! She's such an awesome character, it's too bad she's been relegated to just princess merchandise nowadays and people don't see her personality much.

I'm oh so envious right now! I've been trying to put a Belle costume together since for couple years and only now have I really made any progress. I hope that when everything is done it comes out half as good as yours!

Thank you!

I promise I'll wear Winter Belle next, as soon as she's done! Hopefully for the skating party on the 15th (although I hit a snag and had to take the -entire- dress apart because it didn't fit at all around the middle and was too tight at the top). I plan to do some mad costuming next week to get her ready in time for the party, and hopefully if we can get a winter photoshoot that doesn't cost over a grand to do (sheesh!).
