This DIY Beast costume was inspired by Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast when it came out a few years ago. I already made a couple other fun costumes include a Prince Charming, so it seemed natural to make a Beauty and the Beast prince costume too.
How to Make Beauty and Beast Costume
This costume is another easy Disney Prince costume that can be sized up to adults or down for a toddler Beast costume. It can be no-sew if you like, although I did make a few stitches in my version. Here’s what you need to make your own DIY Beauty and the Beast Costume.
DIY Beast Costume Materials:
I thrifted everything we didn’t have already on hand at home including the most important piece to this easy DIY costume, the blue blazer. I found this petite jacket in the women’s section, it was perfect with gold button accents.
DIY Beast Costume Jacket
I unbuttoned the jacket and pinned the top half open. Then covered the jacket edges in gold duct tape. I added gold duct tape to the jacket pockets for extra detail.
The jacket needed white flowing cuffs, so I found a shirt with great cuffs at my local thrift store. I did a rough cut and added them with a few basic stitches. You could use hem tape here or hot glue if you really want to avoid a little thread and needle action
My blazer came with gold buttons; if yours doesn’t you can replace the buttons or just cover them with gold duct tape.
DIY Beast Costume Cravat
Utilizing more of the fancy shirt, I cut a large section of the material to create the cravat. I slipped a gold button through a pipe cleaner and used it to tie the cravat around the middle.
Then I sewed the cravat to the top edge of a white t-shirt. Again you could use a glue gun here but a couple of quick stitches worked well for me.
DIY Beast Costume Pants
Track pants are my favorite starting point for a prince costume. The material is a little shiny and thin which is good for a costume and it’s easy to add fancy trim or in this case gold duct tape down the side to make the pants “princely.”
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. It arrives in theaters on March 17, 2017!
