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:
I just wanted to let you know that I love this artwork and I put this piece in a video I made of "Let It Go." I made sure to credit you and put a link to this page in the description. However, I can remove this picture from the video if you prefer. Here is a link if you want to make sure the piece is represented to your liking: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ5TDN…

It looks awesome !!!!!!!
