DH: Belle's prom dress by Nina-D-Lux DH: Belle's prom dress by Nina-D-Lux
So when i uploaded my disney high collection i promised prom dresses for all the girls
Heres a list of the girls i will be doing in future:
Snow white
and Lottie

Also im going to mention that all of this pics are based around a story i'm writing over on [link] and in the story i'm not actually including a prom, but just a casual highschool dance. But naming these pictures 'Ariels casual highschool dance dress' isn't as catchy as 'prom dress' so that's why that's happening haha. Just saying, since if American proms are anything like Australian Balls, the girls would probably wear long, floor length dresses and i'm designing the girls cocktail dresses like this one.

I got a lot of comments on my disney high girls that i dressed them 'slutty' and that a lot of people didn't like the choices i made with their outfits, which is fine everyones entitled to an opinion and whatever, and now i feel like im going to get the same type of comments on this since i made Belles dress short and tight. So again, feel free to hate it, but maybe consider that you don't particularly need to tell me. I don't mean this in a rude way, its not about me not taking criticism, its just that I'm not going to change it. Everyone has different tastes and different ideas, and just because its not something you would picture for her, well, i don't know what to say but oh well : ) again, really not trying to come off as rude here! smiles all around!

But yeah, anyway, i chose this design becuase obviously it's based around her famous gold ballroom scene dress. I went with the same off the shoulders style and modernized it with the draping across the front. I chose not to do a poofy style skirt, since iv'e seen another beautiful version of someones disney prom dress ideas and they've already done that idea perfectly, i couldn't improve on it so i thought instead i would do something different and go for an bodycon chic style. I also have the idea that Adam/Beast would have bought this dress for her as a gift, not knowing much about womens fashion at all and just ordering what the lady at the store cosnidered the best she had in stock. Belles maybe even a little embarrassed to wear something so showy and fashionable, which i wanted to show through her pose, but ultimately she wears it as she doesn't want to waste Adam's gift, as it was a sweet gesture.
Also the roses in her hair : )

I love your art so much! Its really good and just love there outfits to death, but this one dosent feel right and i don't want to sound mean. But because she dose have a fancy dress in the movie and you could very easily make it modern such as shorting it but keeping it as a ball gown. Other then that its a really cute dress and i see elements of the original dress. Its really good and I love the Disney High drawing that you do they are amazing.

I did at times find myself questioning the great deal of short skirts in this series, mostly on the ones they seemed uncharacteristic on, but from what I read on your comment on the long-skirted Esmerelda sketch, it sounds like a stylistic preference, so I think it's fine, really. Plus, long dresses are pretty much what most of the princesses are usually seen in, so it makes sense to deviate that way. 

Belle sure is living up to her name here! I do kind of like how you have given some thought into her not seeming like the type to wear a dress like that, I think the slight awkwardness fits her personality. All the sparkles sure are dazzling, especially in the roses, and I kind of like the effect of the contrast between them and the slightly more subtle yet beautiful sheen of her hair. It gives the sense of artificial glamour next to her own more humble, natural beauty and as the dress was from Adam, kind of an "opposites attract" contrast between them. The down-to-earth girl and her princely courter. Says quite a lot with so little.
