Another week to go till Frozen premieres in the UK and our impending housemove might happen in the two weeks before xmas (eek!). Busy busy.
Yes, just not Victorian.
Thanks for the compliments!
Alas here we have yet another reason why REBLOGging rather than REPOSTing is the better option when there’s a choice. My original post can be found here so you can all kindly stop reblogging this (originally) uncredited and unsourced rubbish. Thank you.
Warm-up sketch of body shape variants that I got a little carried away with… previous version of the theme here.
I may be slightly obsessed with Elsa… I read the film script and while I was initially wary of how Disney butchered the original fairytale now I just don’t care because it’s going to be awesome. I mean come to think of it, why did they even attempt to blag it off as a H.C.Andersen’s Snow Queen adaptation? That just put a load of expectations and baggage on the film’s shoulders that isn’t necessary when Frozen seems like it’ll be a goddamn good film by its own right. Aside from a female character that can control winter and snow it has nothing left in common with the Snow Queen fairytale so they could had just as well said it’s based off ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ or DC’s Fables (or my goddamn college film that also had a white powerful queen called Lumi srsly.. it’s not exactly an original concept in that sense). It has representation problems sure but it does do quite a few other things right in my opinion. Can not wait to see it!!!
Fairy Tales for Twenty-somethings is one of my favourite tumblrs ever, Tim Manley’s rendition of Beauty and the Beast is delightful (even if in itself a little shallow). I couldn’t stop myself from making a quick Disney crossover.
Beauty and the Beast had been dating for a while now, and Beauty knew it was time for the Beast to meet her friends. But she was a little nervous. All her friends had these superhot boyfriends who worked in finance or modeled for J.Crew or whatever. The Beast was, well, the Beast liked to play Xbox in his underwear. And he was really into his fantasy football team. Beauty loved the Beast for who he was, she really did, but her friends were shallow and judgmental. “Maybe you should get some new friends,” Siri advised.
Made a tiny Elsa out of Sculpey to distract from an achy tooth this week. As you can probably tell I haven’t sculpted anything since high school art class but it was fun! If I ever do this again I’ll know to put in a better supporting structure than a toothpick, by the time I got her hair done the bottom half had started to sink. Maybe getting some tools wouldn’t be a bad idea either… my fingers are kinda big.
I’m not a seamstress by any means so I’m afraid I can’t supply a step by step guide on how to make a rococo dress but if it helps you on your quest to figure it out I’ll do what I can. All I know is under the cut:
