Lost in my world of books - Belle by giusynuno Lost in my world of books - Belle by giusynuno
::EDIT 09/05/2014:: Guys!!!!!!!! Thank you SO MUCH for the DD!!!!!! I'm honoured:blush: I'm so grateful for all your kind comments&faves, you're all so nice!!! Your support is a big motivation for me to keep on working on getting better at what I do:heart: THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! ::

Aaaaand....I got the pictures of my Belle cosplay!!! YEEEEEEEEEY!!!! :party: 
My friend Novita and I took them during Venice Carnival last February, I'm SO happy about them!! They're all amazing:love:  Novita is an amazing photographer and we share the same imagination XD
We were blessed with a beautiful weather, with the right lighting to avoid flash :happy: 

We took the pictures at my friend Luigi's bookstore might have seen it on BBC's culture column as one of the 10 most beautiful bookshops in the world:heart:… since I was there during all the setup process of the book staircase and walls I'm exceptionally happy about this mention:heart::heart: the owner, Luigi, is a friend of the Carnival and has been a dear friend for the last 10 years or so  i got your heart 
So well...there was no better place to take some Belle shots than Luigi's shop:book-bounce: 
This is my Once Upon a Time's Belle dress, if you are wondering about the design :)
There is an hidden reference to one of the Belle-centric episode (if you can call them like that...let's say, an episode with a bit more Belle than normal xD) in the picture, if you spot it let me know grin wink 

Costume making&model: me XD
Photo&Edit: Novita…
Location: Libreria Acqua Alta - Sestiere Castello, 5176/B Venezia

A lovely and not often seen version of Belle, the lighting, mood and costume all work with the cosplayer to create a sweet and gentle portrait of a beloved character.

Guissyyyy. May I use this pose as a reference for my drawing?  It's for my friend who reminds me so much of Belle, and when I think of Belle, I think of this photograph. I just want to make sure it is okay. c:
