This was such a busy January. I had my own exhibition of which I will write later, and I had to make more than 8 costumes for the Chibicon.
That kinda changed my plans for the Cosplay competition and I had to deal with something that is a little bit more simplier.
Few months ago I promised to myself that I will make characters that I loved since my childhood. And if I had to pick my favourite Disney princess, that would definitely be Belle. An outcast that loves to travel and read, falls in love with something different and odd.
I had two months to learn everything about her, the way she speaks, moves, thinks and behave.
That is why I was thinking and thinking about the exact performance. It had to be interesting and charming!
Somehow, Beauty isn't complete without her Beast, so, I decided to create him too.
The performance started with a song "Little town" and I had the Enchanted rose in my arms. It glows, just like the real one.
Also, I had a book with a pop-up ship to show to the audience how much I love to read and travel.
With a manual that says"How to make a perfect Prince charming" I dressed up the Prince, removed Gaston's face and uncovered the Beast.
I was dancing with him to the end of the performance while "Tales old as time" was playing.
Audience was enthusiastic, and judges gave me so many compliments for everything I did. Cosplayers were taking pictures with me and congratulated even before announcement of the winners.
Competition ended with winning the award for the best sewed costume. The best moment was when I realized that I'm on the stage with my fellows from Valinor club who also were awarded.
Beautiful ending of an amazing event!
