FINALLY FINISHED!!! Began this lovely darling back in February!
This costume to date have over 1027 hours of work and still has pieces that are currently in the process of being made. Her materials consist of worbla finest art, instamorph, wonderflex, resin, foam, glass, silk and satin. Elsa has been quite the journey for me, and I can not wait to finish her completely. She is my first full armoured costume as well as my biggest challenge as far as what materials I used altogether. :) I am very proud of her.
Her wig was an arda Suzi wig in platinum blonde but I bought some extra wefts in Ash blonde and sewed them in to give her hair a little more thickness and dimension. Real hair has various colours in it no matter the colour, and I wanted to give the wig a more realistic look as well as length.
This Elsa is about three years older than in the film, and she has grown in her magic, her maturity and in her love for her sister and her people.
