Posts Tagged ‘Movie: Frozen’

Ever since hubby and I took her to see it at the movies, like millions of other little girls, my granddaughter is absolutely obsessed with Snow Queen Elsa from the highest grossing animation movie of all time:  Frozen.

As soon as the video was released I ordered it from Disney and she was the first to have a copy in her class because it wasn’t available here yet.

Apparently for ‘Show and Tell’ she took the book I also sent away for in and sang the song  “Let it go!”  (For those not aware, the song was a huge hit from the pivotal moment of the film.)

My granddaughter and her 18 month old little sister sing it together and dance around her bedroom.  (I tried to video her singing it today but she was  “A little bit shy, Nanna.” ) 

This weekend her Mum is taking her to Disney on Ice and supposedly all the little ones in the audience will dress up like princesses.  So naturally, our little princess wanted an Elsa costume.

We’ve been looking for months and were very pleased when the brochures arrived telling us the costume and the dolls were in stock.  We tried lots of different shops and got the same reply – “Sorry, sold out!”

There’s even a ‘black market’ in costumes and dolls now – anything in fact to do with ‘Frozen’.  I tried to buy snowflake hair slides and nope – nothing available.

There’s was no alternative – I would have to make her an outfit myself – eventually, a doll as well.  (She does have a birthday coming up so she could wear the costume for that too.)  Could I get the right color materials to make a dress? No – they were sold out too!  Perhaps I’m not the only Mum/Grandma etc having to make an outfit…

Well, I did my best.   And because I’ve got left-over material, I’m going to make a baby version for her little sister.

Anyway, I took the dress over today for a try-on.   I need to take the hem up but basically, it fits and my granddaughter is thrilled.  What do you think?
