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 is a beautiful work of art! Can I use this picture to create a Elsa cosplay on this dress?

I may be one of the only people on Earth who DIDN'T like Frozen. But I still like this dress, I know in the movie it's made out of ice and that's why it's transparent, but I prefer this opaque fabric for her sleeves and under-arm cape thingy (I don't know what it's called). Also gone is that slit in her skirt I never liked, perfect.
I know you don't view these as improvements, but I think they are. Disney chat emote
