With the last installment of Twilight on everyone’s mind, the Bella Costume is a great choice for Halloween 2012! This halloween costume does not need alot to be successful. Another plus is not only can this outfit and look be worn for trick-or-treating, but you can also use it for a very pretty look if you want to dress like Bella at your prom!
The look I’ve chosen for your Ms. Swan costume idea is the look that she wore when she got dressed up to attend the prom with Edward Cullen. She comes down the staircase and stuns Edward into silence with her slightly funky yet very beautiful look. Here’s what you can do to achieve the same style.
Step 1: Twilight Blue Dress
The main part of Bella’s outfit is her dress. The idea you want to look for when you choose your dress is a deep, rich blue color. Bella’s dress had a V-neck line, had a tiered ruffled skirt, and was sleeveless. Yours does not have to look the exact same – in fact it will be difficult to find one the exact same – but choose one that’s similar and you’ll have a good idea of the right look. Instead of stockings, finish off the dress with a pair of dark footless leggings!
Step 2: Converse Shoes
When Bella came down the staircase to meet Edward one of the stunning pieces of her outfit was the very practical shoes she was wearing! One of her feet was injured, so she wore a cast boot on one leg, and she wore black converse on the other. Choose a pair of low top Converse All stars for the right look.
Step 3: Bella’s Prom Hair
This is one of the first times we see Bella’s hair fixed up. Her hair is brown and slightly longer than shoulder length, and for the prom she wears it in loose curls and clipped back from her face.
