We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

This one does seem a bit too pale. I like it in the fact that, in my personal opinion, it looks a little less "costumey" than my memories of the previous gown. I can see this gown being an actual ballgown. But I do wish the colors weren't quite so muted.
Anyone have pictures of the old gown? I did a quick Google search for it, but wanted to make sure I'm looking at the right pictures.
the outfit is nice..somewhat better than some dresses ive seen for belle on both DIsney walkarounds and dolls.and it couldve been worse...it couldve have been made orange/red/pink and yellow like ive seen on some of the Belle Dolls
