Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

I created this costume for one of my friends Kat Steel. She commissioned me to replicate her dream costume from the Disney movie “Beauty and the Beast”. Belle’s famous yellow ball gown was a big challenge, I wanted to give it the right amount of poofyness in the skirt. I used taffeta sewing several gathering stitches down the skirt. Under the skirt is a hoop skirt as well as a petticoat. The corset was made in a darker yellow wedding satin. For extra sparkle I made the brooch with Swarovski crystals in a sliver setting. The wig was styled by the talented Space Invader! Last summer Italian photographer Paolo Cellammare visited my boyfriend and I on holiday. For fun we set up a photoshoot with Kat Steel at the University of Southern California. The last magical shot is by September Sky taken at the “Princess Picnic” in 2008!

Nothing makes me happier than dressing my friends up in big pretty costumes. Seeing Kat run around in her gown makes me think if there ever was a real Disney Princess I got to make a gown for the real life Belle.

Cosplayer – Kat Steel
Photographers – Paolo Cellammare & September Sky

Do you take commissions for the Belle ball gown anymore? Because it is absolutely gorgeous and quite possibly the only one that is completely accurate. I am really interested if you do and how long it would take. Thank you =)

Chrissy - May 25, 2011 - 12:30 pm

How much would it be to get a custom made Belle dress…this is TDF! I do volunteer work at the childrens hospital here in Ne…and I thought I purchasing 1 of 2 characters I could most feasibly potray 1 is belle and the other being the little mermaid. I know the little girls would go gaga for Beauty.

If you make replicas of this, I am VERY interested in this. I have searched high and low for princess Belle costumes and they are near impossible to find, and the ones that are sold- dont look anything like the real thing! This is the most beautiful dress I have ever seen!

I was wondering if you ever thought of making a sort of tutorial for this dress. I’ve been dying to find out how to gather the fabric like you did for this dress and how the bodice was done. I’m looking to make a Belle dress for Halloween 2012 and I’ve been trying to find a way to make it look as pretty as this one.

Also, I was wondering… where did you find the petticoat and hoop skirt? And if you are still taking commissions, how much would this Belle dress cost?

Thank you,


Stephanie - March 5, 2012 - 4:41 am

I have been searching everywhere for Belle’a dress and there’s not one that can compare to this one! Please please!! I would love to have this dress for my Quinceanera!

Hi,I’ve been a fan for sometime now. You have done an amazing job with this dress. It look stunning on you. I don’t know, but to me, this dress surpass the dress I’ve seen Bella’s wearing at Disney (and even on pictures I’ve seen surfing the web). You should consider working for Disney as Bella….. Indeed, this is the best dress, by far, I’ve seen. Great Job! I too, want to know if you are making this dress as an ordered and for how much?

Katrina McNaughton - August 29, 2012 - 10:40 pm
