Cosplayer Casey Renee loves both Disney and the study of history, which is why she describes her Rococo Belle cosplay as “a dream project”. She writes:
Back in February I finished a dream project of mine. Rococo Belle is a historically accurate version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I narrowed the time period down to the 1750s in France and used popular silhouettes such as the boufant wig and the watteau train to construct this beast of a project. It took over 300 hours to make the 9 garments (including socks and shoes) complete with over 2000 beads and pearls. The entire garment weighs 22 pounds with 30 yards of fabric and a wig that Cogsworth (which I also constructed) sits upon.
She says the costume allows her to share her love for Disney and history with children who tend to follow her around.
I can see why! Check out more pics of the costume below.
