In honor of the upcoming Disney live action Beauty and the Beast, I thought I'd gather together some of my favorite cosplays from my favorite Disney movie of all time. After all, with the cast announced (sans Chip), I doubt we'll be getting much more news about the production until it's closer to the release date, so I need a little something to keep me going!
First and foremost, we have Belle as we first meet her, in the classic blue dress. (Which, on a personal note, I far prefer to the yellow gown. I could actually wear this one!)
1. Adella Cosplay
Adella Cosplay gets the iconic hair absolutely perfect in this gorgeous shot. Who says that Disney princesses create unrealistic expectations about hair?
2. Ever After Studios
I love this dreamy shot from Ever After Studios: the soft focus and long grass create the ultimate live-action version of her daydreaming of adventure in the great wide somewhere.
Cosplay photos aren't just about the costume. This shot of Belle lost in a book (and surrounded by them) captures her personality to a T. (Although I'm not sure she would ever put her feet on the spines!)
4. Aigue Marine
My favorite part of the cosplay is that Aigue Marine included Belle's cape. It's rare to see, and I love it!
Then we have Belle's most popular outfit for Disney cosplayers; that iconic yellow gown. It takes an incredible amount of work and skill to create a ballgown this detailed, and these cosplayers nailed it!
5. Lauren Bang
6. Ryoko Demon
7. Destiny Nickelsen
Or, if you are after something a little different, how about the Moulin Rouge variation from Destiny Nickelsen?
Then there are those who choose to do a little something different - the outfits that we don't see very often.
8. Azabeth Sich
10. Alena Koshkar
Finally, let's not forget some of the other cast members!
11. Falketta (Gaston unknown)
12. Sillywhim Cosplay, Punzy Cosplay & Queen Bee Cosplay as the Bimbettes!
13. Ryoko Demon
And they all cosplayed happily ever after!
