Art Nouveau Disney Princess Cosplay

Almost two years ago, Hannah Alexander took Disney princess gowns and converted them to a gorgeous art nouveau styling. She put considerable thought into the new elegant looks, and when she shared her work, she detailed the inspirations as well as what sort of fabrics and materials the dresses were made from. For example, for the Belle dress in the above illustration, Hannah says:

Top of dress would be either cotton or stiff silk, tail of dress is layers of chiffon. Again, all dyed in gradients. Bottom panels are sewn on top of an a-line skirt and fixed with embroidery. Bodice and upper skirt are paneled and embroidered – center piece is a sewn on belt, embroidered with dusky, earthy beads, though the very middle design is made of mirrored beads, to represent Beast’s shattered mirror.

They’re more than just pretty dresses. Hannah’s work has inspired at least one cosplay group to sew and construct her designs. Twelve cosplayers dressed as the Disney princesses in Hannah’s series and got together for a huge photo shoot. You can see Belle, Ariel, and Cinderella below; they’re cosplayed by AlyCat Cosplay, Pudding Cosplay, and Kitty Krell, respectively. Visit each of those cosplayer’s pages (linked) to see work in progress photos.
