Belle + Taco BellTaco Belle, fast food princess and puntastically awesome cosplay by master costumer Olivia Mears, aka Avant-Geek.

It all began in 2012 when Mears went to Taco Bell dressed as Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Then she made a stunning dress out of Taco Bell taco wrappers last year:

Now she’s combined the two in a stunning satin ballgown. The tacos are made of hand-painted card stock, tissue paper, and felt. The flowers and ruffles are made from Taco Bell wrappers.
