Honestly? We’ve seen much better versions of Elsa than this – and they were all amateur cosplayers.
This is just… bleh. It’s all right, but it kinda looks like one of those characters you see wandering around Times Square, charging for pictures; like she should have Elmo on one side of her and a cowboy in underpants on the other. It’s just not what we’d call fabulous.
When we were on our book tour, a reader asked us who our favorite Disney princess was. We’re not of that genus of homosexual known as Disney Queens. We don’t own any movies or memorabilia; neither of us have ever been to Disney World, so the question caught us a little off guard. Even so, it took us only a second before we blurted out “ELSA! Because come on, that was a total drag queen moment, amirite? She sang her way into a fabulous gown!” Our point being, of all the Disney princesses, we’d say she’s the most glamorous (we expect vigorous disagreement and debate on this point), so we expected a costume that looked a little more … upscale than this.
Then again, we always thought the costumes on this show were kind of cheap-looking. If Maleficent proved anything, it’s that you can render some astonishingly gorgeous costumes out of classic Disney characters.
