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.

She’s at it again. This time it’s her historically accurate version of Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. Very gorgeous.

As someone trying to develop an art style of my own, I found this interesting to watch.



My favorite derpy bird – the Double-crested Cormorant. You see these all over the wetlands/beaches in Southern California. I love their emerald eyes and how they swim with their beaks turned up.

Thanks to its shagginess and serendipitous feather placement to look like claws, there’s something incredibly dinosaurian about the first GIF.

Good animation reference…
