Vol. 5 In the Disney Collections
*Unsatisfied with the immense amount of Disney princess inspired collections, I finally have decided to embark on my own. All will be Disney based, and after the first 11 official princesses I plan on doing more characters. Inspiration was drawn from the style of the film, the personality of the character, and the time period in which it was /made/.
So now that we're in the 90s, the whole time-in-which-it-was-made influence isn't going to be a main component, and now I'm just going to stick to what feels like the character. I guess Belle had a few nods to the time period. Jumper dresses worn over sleeve tops. Doc martins. Floral prints [her case roses]. But overall I went for a demure bookish French girl. Which is what belle is. And I don't mean demure as in weak. I mean, I think she'd be the type to not wear too many bright colors or loud prints. I dunno. It all makes since *up here*.
