Steampunk Beauty and the Beast

Well, Belle is an inventor in this year’s version of the movie, so this checks out. We’ll hold out hope that Disney considers this for the next round of remakes in 20 years or so.

Dark Beast, Ethereal Beauty

The Beast gets a little darker with a crow-like transformation here, with a beauty made of light (or a Patrick Swayze-in-Ghost analogue). The rose petals add a nice touch of color, too.
