Belle Cosplay by Adella Belle Cosplay by Adella
This is a picture of my Belle costume from Beauty and the Beast.

The costume was made by me, the hair was styled by me, and the person in the photo is me.

Before my skirt was all blahh and weird looking at the bottom because I'm too tall and the petticoat I wore was too short X_X; so I did some altering of the petticoat and I think it came out looking a little better this time. Also I decided to corset myself so that I could have a little "umph" up top!

Costume Specs:

-yellow satin-back polyester shantung
-yellow satin acetate (bodice)
-wonderflex (hair accessory!)
-brown contact lenses
-gloves were hand dyed to match (kinda got them the right color!)

Photography was done by Kyle Johnsen from Photoshoot was in Balboa Park, San Diego.

How is this not Cosplay?
EscargotLuverz Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2011  Student General Artist
it's not even anime. cosplay is for anime. i mean...the beauty and the beast is disney. not anime. ^^'
CharlieDoryRose Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011
Cosplay is not just for anime. Cosplay means "costume play"... which this is.
EscargotLuverz Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011  Student General Artist
the word cosplay is originated in japan, so it should only be used for describing anime costumes, which are also originated in japan.
CharlieDoryRose Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011
Regardless of where it orginated, the word still means "costume." The Japanese did not call it "animeplay."

That's like saying that an azelea is not a flower, because it is Japanese. But by western standards, it is still a flower, regardless of the fact it did not originate here.
EscargotLuverz Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011  Student General Artist
That's because it's a flower and nobody invented it. And also, the Japanese consider it to be a flower as well.

About you stating that 'Cosplay' means 'costume' and that it doesn't only refer to Anime Costumes, is just like saying paper isn't originated from China because you can get paper almost anywhere. It's like saying sushi is not originated from China, because you can make it at home, and eat it almost anywhere. (Sushi was a method used by the Chinese during war so it would be easier to handle their food when traveling. The Japanese copied case you didn't know.)

It like saying 'gunpowder' isn't originated from China, because they call it huoyao.

And when the Japanese created 'cosplay', they meant what they had invented. 'Anime'. When they talked about cartoons, it meant 'Anime'. Not disney or any western cartoons. And when they cosplayed, they cosplayed as Anime characters. Because that is what it means to cosplay.
CharlieDoryRose Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011

To cosplay, is Costume Play. Right? We're both clear on that?

Regardless of who invented it, it's still a word in several cultures other than just Japan. It has a universal meaning, which is Costume Play.

Now I cosplay from both Final Fantasy and Disney. I consider my Disney costumes just as much cosplay as my Final Fantasy ones. Because they are.

You're beautiful. You look like you stepped right out of the movie.

Wow, wonderful job with Belle's dress!
biwer Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011
I know some people have contacted you about making this dress for them. I do "princess parties" showing up at little girls' birthday parties as different Disney princesses. I would love to add this to my collection. If you could e-mail me at I would love to talk to you about making one for me for my next party and pricing if you're interested.
