Queen Elsa's signature gown includes a long, light blue dress with a fitted bodice, sheer long sleeves, and a cape or train made of sparkly, translucent fabric. The dress often features glittery snowflake or icicle patterns to enhance the icy theme.
Elsa's hairstyle is a long, thick side braid. If you have long hair, you can create a loose side braid and pull out some strands to frame your face. If your hair is short or a different color, consider purchasing a blonde wig styled in Elsa's signature braid.
Pair your Elsa costume with light blue or silver high heels or ballet flats. Look for shoes with a metallic, sparkly, or icy finish to complement the magical theme of Elsa's outfit.
To create a DIY Queen Elsa dress, start with a light blue dress or a blue bodice and skirt as the base. Add sheer long sleeves, either by sewing them onto the dress or using a separate sheer top underneath. For the cape, use a sparkly, translucent fabric like organza or tulle, and attach it to the back of the dress or shoulders. Embellish the dress and cape with glittery snowflake or icicle patterns using fabric paint or iron-on appliqués.
To complete your Queen Elsa costume, consider adding a silver or blue tiara, a pair of light blue gloves, and a snowflake-shaped wand or scepter. You can also create a prop of Olaf the snowman or wear a snowflake necklace to further embody Elsa's ice magic.
About Queen Elsa
Elsa is the daughter of King Agnarr and Queen Iduna as well as the older sister to Princess Anna. While Elsa is the ruler of Arendelle, she wasn’t the Snow Queen until she developed powers over snow and ice in her later years. Elsa also happens to be loosely based on the character of the Snow Queen which is a fairytale by Hans Christan Anderson.
Elsa gives off the air of a regal and poised ruler but underneath she battles with the fear of her powers which she has not told to anyone yet. It’s a secret that weighs heavy on her especially when it almost took the life of her younger sister when they were kids. While her power mounts out of control due to her fear and anxieties, her sister is able to help her overcome them and help her grow as a person while they eventually stop the eternal winter.
