It looks like I'm the queen (coronation gown) by shoomlah It looks like I'm the queen (coronation gown) by shoomlah

Oh, Elsa.  What are we going to do with you.

Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830's-40's, but I've been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her... weird underarm-cape.  Thing.  You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it's not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle.  THAT'S MY EXCUSE.

I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well.  Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.  You can see the other version HERE:

This series of you is probably the best thing on the Deviantart. Just felt the need to point it out.
Also, I can't stop looking at those amazing soft lines with which you make these details. I mean, it's just beautiful.

I haven't checked your page in months, and come to find this.

This is my favorite. I love Elsa's coronation outfit something fierce, and this GORGEOUS. I love all your designs, but I would give a leg to cosplay this. It's just AMAZING and I'm ridiculously emotional.

Finally, a coronation gown!! I love her coronation getup in the movie, and noone does anything with it! This is gorgeous, I love the patterns in the fabric!

This is fabulous I adore the little details on the fabric and  how the fabric drapes on her body.

Cool! Been looking forward to this one for a while. My only regret is the combined dress thing -- I liked the slightly different theming in the film, with the coronation outfit and tiara following the Arendelle crocus flower theme and the ice dress using Elsa's snowflake, but it looks like here we've got the snowflake theme in both versions of the outfit. I guess that's just a cost of being able to have alternate versions.

Still like it a lot though. I generally prefer the coronation outfit just because it seems a wee bit more regal and I just like the color purple, but I definitely look forward to the ice dress if and/or when you decide to tackle it.

Specific comments about this one: love the poofy sleeve things here. Definitely feels regal, and is an improvement on the film version which made me vaguely think of a wetsuit. The tiara, bustline, and flarey shoulder thing remind me a lot of the Empire-style (and Josephine's coronation gown in particular). The more open dress is an interesting choice too, but apt: the covered to the neck version in the film struck me as vaguely Victorian and though some of the architecture is Victorian in the film, it's supposed to be 1840s as you indicate.

But yeah, aside from the lack of the crocus I think it's excellent, even if I lack the technical vocabulary to express quite which features I like about it. This may be my favorite one in the series (surpassing Belle and Rapunzel). Keep up the good work!

This version is much cooler than the one in the movie, and less stuffy as well.  Could u do one 4 Anna as well?
