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:

The only thing I don't buy is the lack of a slit and no neck piece and no necklace.

This is such a beautiful piece! I see from your FAQ that you are cool with cosplay inspired by your designs. I'm a historical costumer/cosplayer (my website is inthelongrun.wordpress.com), and I've put this design on my wishlist. I will be sure to share pictures with you, if and when I finish.

Elsa is supposed to have a pony tail when she wears her ice gown!

Yes but here it's an historical acurrate version. Accordind with the clues in the movies, it would be during 1830, even before, Regency, etc.
And during this era, hair fashion in noble Houses was not really about low ponytail or sided braid with asymetric bangs... Her movie hairstyle is too modern for an historical accurate version.
Have you read the descritption ? ;)

I can already see this for a live action Frozen, you should send this to Disney, and I'm thinking of drawing my friend as a live action Elsa and you gave me inspiration.

the timeline doesn't make sense in frozen, in 19th century it was the industrial revolution, no way they would have the lifestyle, clothing, or everyday habbits depicted in the movie

So excited that I found your gallery! Oh my gudness. I saw your work featured in a blog post about artists to watch out for that I stumbled on several months back. I loved your Disney aesthetic so much, I told all my art friends about it. So glad to see you have even more work than I saw. You have a great eye for detail ^///^

So this just leaves Anna, Alice, Wendy, and Jane. Do you plan on doing anything for the villainesses, or characters specific to the direct-to-video works (ie., Wendy and Ariel's daughters)?

I hate to be that person (and yes, I did read the faq), but you are going to include Princess Anna, right? I know how popular Elsa is, but would be terribly sad if Anna were left out.
