Beauty and the Beast
In this day and age, finding true love isn’t easy. Actually, back in the days of fairy tales, it wasn’t easy, either. The classic tale of Beauty and the Beast recounts how a spoiled prince gets turned into a hideous monster because of his cruel and uncaring nature. The only way for him to break the curse is to find someone that he can love and who will love him back. Of course, Belle eventually sees past his harsh exterior and breaks the spell, but not before braving it out through various trials and dangers. They’re an inspiration to love-struck couples across the land, so the tale makes for a great costume experience at any costume party. Well, you’re in luck! We’ve put together this handy guide so you can craft a Beauty and the Beast costume experience that you won’t forget. We even have licensed Disney costumes and accessories for you to look at, so you’ll have an authentic look in no time.
