My half of an art trade with
My source of inspiration was Steampunk Couture
. Such a gorgeous style- less gadgety and more ruffles and accessories. (however gadgety would work really well for Belle too
My trade-partner (heh) wanted a Steam Punk style Belle from Beauty and the Beast- and I thought, initially, people would go for her yellow ball gown- MAYBE even interpret her blue peasant dress. So I pondered a bit and thought- well it IS the 'Holiday Season'- So! I decided it'd be fun to re-design her winter get-up from the first film.
