Belle's Nobody

Original

Last Updated: 12-06-2008


I call this the What-If That Went Insane. For some reason a friend and I were discussing which princesses mirrored which Organization members, and of course Belle and Xigbar came up. I speculated on what would happen if Belle left the Beast and joined the Organization.

Thus, Dark Belle.

The bodice-jacket came from the bodice pattern I used on my yellow Belle bodice, substantially lengthened and altered to facilitate the giant zipper. That zipper caused no end of grief, but I couldn't have asked for it to turn out better. I feel like that bodice-jacket is a crowning achievement of my sewing to date. (Particularly the ten-inch-tall Organization Logo stitched to the lining. That was fun.)

I would have loved to have poofed out the skirt, added a petticoat or some kind of substructure. It was already two layers - four yards of black polysatin over four yards of white linen-cotton-something-or-other - and one day I will find a hoopskirt for it.

Gloves are pain, yes? Yes.

All in all, this costume garnered me a lot of odd looks and double-takes, but it made me very happy that a lot of people who didn't quite get it were interested enough to ask.
