Best Princess Bean Costume Guide
Princess Bean is the main character in the brilliant Matt Groening series Disenchantment, and she is voiced by actor Abbi Jacobson. Far from the traditional princess, Princess Bean is a raging alcoholic who is frustrated by the fact that being a princess doesn’t allow her to find her own way in life. Rebelling against this, Bean is often shown as being drunk, gambling in the local tavern, starting fights, and generally disobeying her father, King Zog.
Princess Bean lives in Dreamland and is usually found hanging out with her naive elf friend Elfo, and her personal demon Luci, who often encourages her unseemly behavior. If you want to transform yourself into Dreamland’s reluctant and drunken Princess Bean, you’ll need to get yourself a Sleeveless Tunic Tank Top, White T-Shirt, Leather Belt, Brown Tights, Brown Casual Boots, White Wavy Long Hair and Tooth Caps for her familiar buck teeth.

Princess Bean Costume Tips & FAQs
Embark on a whimsical and rebellious adventure with our Princess Bean costume guide FAQ from “Disenchantment”. Ideal for fans of the animated series, this guide is designed to help you capture the essence of Bean’s spirited and unconventional princess style, perfect for expressing your adventurous side.
Princess Bean's outfit is a unique take on traditional medieval princess attire. It consists of a simple, short-sleeved green dress that stops just above the knees, paired with a pair of dark brown leggings or tights underneath. Her dress is cinched at the waist with a brown belt. To complete her look, add a pair of brown boots, a circlet or tiara, and her signature pearl necklace.
Princess Bean is known for her long, messy, blonde hair, which reflects her carefree and rebellious personality. You can achieve this look with a long blonde wig or by styling your own hair in loose waves and perhaps teasing it slightly for added volume. Her makeup is minimal, with a focus on a natural look, though she often has dark circles under her eyes, indicative of her frequent late-night escapades.
Princess Bean wears practical brown boots, suitable for her many adventures. The boots are mid-calf and have a worn look, which you can mimic by choosing boots with a rugged or distressed finish. The boots should be comfortable enough for all sorts of activities, just as Bean's are.
Aside from her dress and boots, Bean's most noticeable accessory is her pearl necklace, which adds a touch of elegance to her otherwise simple outfit. Additionally, her circlet or simple tiara is a reminder of her royal status, though it's often askew, reflecting her rebellious nature. Carrying a prop sword or a tankard can also add to the adventurous and rowdy spirit of her character.
Embodying Bean's character can be fun with some of her memorable lines from "Disenchantment." Here are a few: "I want to be in charge of my own life.," "I'm not a princess. I'm the queen.," "I drink because I'm unhappy. I'm unhappy because I drink. It's a vicious circle.," "I don't even know what's wrong with me. I should be happy, but I'm not." and "You know, it's funny. When you look at someone through rose-colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags." These quotes capture Bean's complex character, her desire for independence, and her often sardonic outlook on life. Using these quotes can help you bring a sense of authenticity and depth to your portrayal of Princess Bean.
About Princess Bean
Princess Bean is the star of the new animated show Disenchantment which is created by legendary cartoonist Matt Groening of Simpsons and Futurama fame. The Princess, whose full name is Princess Tiabeanie Mariabeanie de la Rochambeau Grunkwitz, is nothing like your regular television princesses. Her neglectful father, King Zog, has driven her to drink, and at age 19 she is already a raging alcoholic who repeatedly sneaks out of her chambers to drink, gamble and fight in the local tavern.
She rescues a stray elf named Elfo, and also meets her personal demon Luci, with the pair acting as the physical embodiment of good and evil influences which are usually portrayed as a devil and angel on someone’s shoulders. Princess Bean lost her mother at a young age, an event which further isolated her from her father and contributed to her desire to seek solace at the bottom of a bottle.
