Beauty and the Beast Costumes

This weekend, Beauty and the Beast was re-released in theaters in 3D. Now, you probably already know how dorky I am so I don't really have a problem admitting that my friends and I went to see it at midnight and some of us even donned costumes for the occasion. We basically just really love making/thrifting costumes and will take any excuse to do so. But Beauty and the Beast is a major occasion for us, anyway.

Here's how we created our ensembles, in case any of you see a Beauty and the Beast costume in your future.

Belle Costume - Alyssa thrifted this blue dress which is completely perfect. She borrowed this white half-apron and wore a plain white blouse underneath and a blue bow in her hair. She then carried around a book as her prop.

Lumiere Costume - Jordan managed to find yellow EVERYTHING for her costume. She then found these perfect white gloves and stitched some gold felt triangles as flames. She put some kind of cone on her head and tied her hair over the top of it so it stood up (we had to sit in the back row of the theater, obv.)

Babette Costume - Charlotte went as the feather duster, so she had a plain beige top but then attached some feathers to her skirt, ankles, and even her arms.

Mrs. Potts Costume - I knit my purple hat to look like the top of the teapot. The skirt is also semi-handmade. I cut out pink and blue felt pieces and tied them around my waist using yellow yarn. The white sweater and purple skirt were lucky thrift finds.
