I still can’t get over how amazing Beauty and the Beast live action movie was, so I wanted to make a few Disney inspired outfits to keep the major nostalgia feels going a little bit longer. Belle and Peter Pan are two of my all-time favorites out of the classic Disney flicks. Belle with her bookworm tendencies is such a relatable character and Peter Pan has whimsy that is completely irresistible.
Belle is all about that French countryside feel. Simple dresses, light colors, and summery florals work perfectly for a Belle inspired look. Naturally, she is most known for her yellow ball gown and the blue apron dress, which makes it easy to channel her style just based on the color scheme. And how perfect is yellow now that summer is FINALLY here?!
Peter Pan brings to mind earthy colors and comfortable clothes. Pan’s whimsical nature can show through fun accessories like bohemian jewelry and colorful bags. If Belle is a summery character, Pan embodies fall colors and fabrics perfectly.
Which were your favorite Disney films growing up? And did you like the new Beauty and the Beast?
Halloween is just around the corner and one of the best things about it are all the costume parties! Thus, I spend probably 80 % of the year thinking about various outfits I could pull off come next Halloween. However, I rarely do the Halloween costumes I really want to try because they are too demanding.
Nonetheless I wanted to show a few options for Halloween costumes.
6 Fandom Inspired Costumes
The first three more demanding ones inspired by Lagertha for Vikings, Amy Pond from Doctor Who, and the Evil Queen (aka Regina Mills) from Once upon a Time.
Lagertha is a strong warrior so comfort is key: pants and long sleeved shirt are comfortable and keep you warm in the chilly October weather. A faux fur vest is reminiscent of the ancient warrior people in Norway. Round the whole outfit up with Celtic inspired jewelry, comfy boots, and braided hair and you’ll be the most impressive viking at the party!
Amy’s look is also all about comfort – but with a mini skirt! A soft flannel shirt and a leather jacket and you’re ready to kick some dalek ass! If you have a chance, get a red wig to give the costume the final touch.
The Evil Queen is formidable yet sultry: she favors blacks and deep reds with a fair amount of bling. Black faux leather pants pair nicely with a fancy red top and chunky statement jewelry. Furthermore, it’s an outfit you could even wear to a party around the year. Remember a sleek hairdo and red lips!
If you are in a hurry and want an easier costume, here are a few options. Combine black leggings with a black top and add a headband with cat ears. Voilá – you’re a witch’s familiar!
The Queen of Hearts only needs a voluminous red dress and a little crown to be recognizable. But you can also grab a heart scepter or make one yourself if you want a little addition. And don’t forget to yell “off with their heads” a lot!
The final outfit is inspired by Disney’s Little Mermaid. Ariel’s bra can be faked with a fun sea shell top. Add a starfish barrette in your hair and some mermaid leggings you’re good to go!
