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