Taco Belle Costume Is a Glorious Visual Pun

Three years ago, Olivia Mears, also known as Avant-Geek, wore her Beauty and the Beast Belle costume into Taco Bell without thinking about it. She was Belle in Taco Bell — get it, Taco Belle? She decided to run with the idea and recently created a glorious and awesome dress that combined the two concepts. It’s the familiar yellow ball gown combined with tacos. A real Taco Belle. Mears said:

The tacos are hand-painted card stock, tissue paper, and felt. The flowers and ruffles are made from [unused] Taco Bell wrappers.
