A homemade Belle Costume for Halloween this year for all those Beauty and the Beast fans out there. Belle is a very popular Disney Princess, one of the most famous princesses in the entire world and here are the directions so you can make this costume at home and save some money.
The materials you need to make this princess costume are:
*Fancy Yellow or Gold Dress
*Yellow or Gold Ribbon in a matching color
*Long Opera Type Gloves also in Yellow or Gold
*A Real or Fake Long Stem Red Rose
*Small gold jewelry such as a bracelet and small round button earrings
*Optional- A needle and thread
*Optional- Small fake rosebud
Here are the simple directions to make a homemade Belle costume yourself.
1. Try to find an off the shoulder yellow ball gown, but any fancy long gold or yellow dress will work. For an extra special touch you can sew a small rosebud at the top V of the dress.
2. Style your hair similar to Belle. Hair should be in loose curls. Style your hair mostly down with a little bit of hair pulled half up into a loose bun. Belle traditionally has no bangs, and brown hair but this style can really work with many different hair types. Wear the Yellow Ribbon around the head as a head band.
3. Belle wears long gloves, and you can hold a long stem red rose.
4. Wear simple gold earrings and a bracelet.
5. For Belle you will want to keep your makeup simple, but shiny red lips will complete your look.
