Cosplayer Adella > Costume of Belle from Beauty and the Beast
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was so easy to make, until as I was finishing the inside with the serger, a bag of fabric fell off a shelf under my feet and smacked into my serger pedal, shoving it underneath the shelf and mashing it down for max speed. Without time for me to react the serger sped up, grabbing the dress and managing to chew through half the bodice and saw off a strap before I could get it under control. Of course I burst into tears of frustration and ended up having to go to 3 other Joanns (I bought out the blue fabric at the one near me) in order to find more fabric so I could re-cut the bodice and sew it over again. >:/
- Personal Thoughts:
- My life since I was 13 has pretty much been shaped by this movie. In fact, my cosplay name "Adella" was loosely based on a variation of Belle when I first created "Adella" as a role playing character as a kid. This was my second in the series of Belle dresses I wanted to do, and probably going to remain the most comfortable!
