Cosplayer Arlette > Costume of Belle from Once Upon a Time
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- They no longer sell the screen accurate Armani Exchange dress, so I found a similar lace flare dress on ebay and removed the 3/4 length sleeves. The shoes were also very hard to come by, since the $500 Gucci t-straps are waaaaay out of my price range, and the style seems to be unpopular right now. I finally found a pair of peep toe t-straps online, but they were hot pink. I sprayed them burgundy, as well as the leather belt which was originally orange. All in all, I was able to put together a pretty good alt version of this outfit for about $50 (since the belt was given to me by my Waifu, who is also my photographer) when the original outfit would have cost about $650.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I like Belle. I also like sneaking around libraries.
