Portrait of the Royal Family of Arendelle, drawn for the sequence “For the First Time in Forever”. You can see it hanging on the wall on the top left corner, when Anna enters the portrait gallery in the movie.


GUYS. The mom’s hair color is supposed very dark brown, even darker than the King’s. So why does this Queen have blonde hair? My theory is this: Elsa and Anna’s real mom died and the king remarried to the current Queen. That would explain why Anna’s hair is a medium between the King’s hair color and the blonde’s, instead of a dark brown, like the king’s and current queen’s.


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.
