'Let It Go' - Queen Elsa Disney Drag Makeup from Frozen


'Let It Go' - Queen Elsa Disney Drag Makeup from Frozen

It's about time I posted a new makeup look and here's one I created for Brighton Pride 2014!  This year I was walking the parade once again and I brainstormed for ideas until I saw crystal clear idea - Queen Elsa!  I spent weeks finding the right outfit, accessories and makeup and the result of all of all of that can be seen above and below!

My outfit was bought entirely on ASOS.com.  The dress is from a fashion brand called Forever Unique, who make 'unusual dresses'.  The price point is high, but definitely worth it, and I manged to find this gem in the sale!  Celebrities who have worn Forever Unique dresses include Miley Cyrus, Nicole Scherzinger, and Kimberley Walsh to name a fewThe 5" shoes are ASOS own with a lace up design and see-through misted heel.  I bought these as I thought they were a practical alternative and the laces gave me some support for the duration of the parade!
I bought the wig from Coser Studio and the hair pins were bought separately which I then bent into the hair using pliers.  All other accessories were bought via eBay and I made the cape using fabric bought in a local store and knotting it to my collar snowflake necklace.

I love all things Disney and anything that captures the imagination of others is something I give huge props to.  I chose to dress in cosplay and be Queen Elsa, because I knew the film connects with so many people in different ways.  Some people watch the film over and over, some just like the songs, and some only know it through viral videos that people have shared.  Countless people took their picture with me on the day, and many parents wanted a picture of their child or baby with their favourite Disney princess!  I really did feel like a Disney princess throughout the day, and hey, if I can't be apart of the actual Disney Parade then I can sure make my own!  The best part of the day was meeting up with two other people in the parade who were dressed in 'The Little Mermaid' cosplay as Ariel and Prince Eric!

The makeup I've used below is a mixture of drug store and more premium brands.  I only needed to buy the Rimmel lipstick for this look as I had everything else, so really you could buy everything cheap for this look - you can just use my list as a visual reference by shades used!
