My first historically accurate Disney villain painting EVER! Woo! Behold Prince Hans of the Southern Isles, aka "Prince Tight Pants." It was pretty easy to figure his ball/coronation outfit out, with the help of the ever helpful fripperiesandfobs (who suggested an outfit inspired by Prince Albert's wedding costume circa 1840, and the white military outfit worn by a young Prince Franz Joseph of Austria). For all my issues with Frozen, for the most part I like the design of Hans; his costumes are a clever blend of Regency and early Victorian styles.
This took surprisingly long to do, but I suppose that's not surprising given that white is hard to paint and tight breeches are tricky. For the exact fit of the breeches, I referred to various Regency fashion plates, as Victorian plates tended to be much... vaguer, and far more airbrushed... about how men's clothes fit.
But I love your painting! I think all that white turned out really well, and you managed to get the fit of the pants very well. The white/gold/red colour scheme also looks fantastic together. Excellent work, I always love your historical pictures, and this looks great!
(...okay, I know that last bit is actually an urban legend, but my point remains!)
Very nice painting - clearly, this is Hans doing his "charming" act!
Early Victorian/Regency men's outfits are just gorgeous. And - his hair. *Swoons*
Other than that, AWESOME PAINTING!
And Hans IS gorgeous, holy crap I practically hyperventilate looking at him sometimes...
