And a bit alarming

Description

Just stepping in to give a quick DISCLAIMER - most of this art is five years old at this point and embarrassingly out-of-date!  I would love to redo these, armed with additional knowledge and wisdom, but my day job does't leave a ton of free time for personal projects.  Please take these with a grain of salt, and share accordingl; check out literally any of my more recent art if you're looking for more thoughtful historical fashion.  Thanks much!

I can't explain it, but reinterpreting Disney princess outfits through a more historically accurate lens really, really appeals to me. Beauty and the Beast has always hovered hesitantly in the late 18th century (especially in the earlier concept art), so I redid Belle's gold dress to match 1770's French court fashion.

- Claire, who knows above-the-elbow gloves weren't really in fashion until the early 1800's but is running with it anyway.

I'm happy that Belle is not wearing that ugly large white wig.
