What we know about Bessy Bell is that she's a bit deaf and is obviously a bit clumsy to get stuck in a tree so I decided to make her an old lady. Bessy is also an old fashioned name. the Bell part of the name I wanted to include in her design so I made her a little bit like a bluebell, I didn't want to be a cliche as making her dress a flower so it just takes on a bell like shape. I added a few scrapes, stitches and dirt to the dress to hint that she often gets herself in trouble. The white bloomers and flower slippers were to add a bit of colour and fun to the character!
