Imagine being into cosplay, despite being an avenger and 20 years old, and you do crossovers of things like beauty and the beast in a Harry Potter universe, Elsa if she was in the hunger games, pretty much Disney with a twist- Once when you were making armor for your Elsa in the hunger games costume, Loki comes in and sees you trying it on, admiring how tough you look in the armor in the mirror, he is aroused, and despite his better judgement he has to have you now- little did he know you had a crush on him for a while

Elsa’s Classroom Visit

Yesterday I visited all the 2nd grade classrooms at the school where my aunt is a second grade teacher! It was absolutely MAGICAL!!!

I went to 3 different classrooms (1 ½ classes in the first two and two classes in the last room) and did the same basic thing for all of them!

Let me preface the story with the fact that, particularly at this school every single kid sings Let it Go and knows Frozen and Elsa and everything to a T!!! Some of the teachers sing it with them at the end of the day for fun and at one point this group of first graders was walking by (they didn’t see me because i was up high and they were all walking in a line) spontaneously all singing “Let it go”- Basically Frozen is a big deal! Anyway…

My other aunt was with me as my helper so she went into the classroom and had the teacher set up the “Let it Go” video on youtube. The kids were majorly into it and singing along and everything- then when Elsa transforms into her ice dress, my aunt opened the door of the classroom and I came in! It was the cutest thing ever!!! The girls were all squealing and gasping and it was soooooo sweet!!! I talked to them a little bit and then read them The Snow Queen and Frozen (both of which were pretty short!) After the books, i answered some questions from the kids and then individually took photos with them, promising to print them out and autograph them to be returned to them the next day! Every single kid was so sweet and kind!

One of the cutest moments was when I was walking from one of the classrooms to another and it was recess time right outside the door!! One of the kids saw me and was like “who is that…?” and all of a sudden the kids started running towards me!!! There’s a photo above where you can see the group of kids get progressively bigger!!! The teacher was trying to hold them back, but i felt really bad that i wasn’t able to go to all the classes and do photos etc. so i wanted to do something quick and fun with them! They were all shouting questions at me so i began singing “Let it go” (bear in mind- i am not a singer…) they all joined in and it was soooooo cute!!! (i’ll post the 5 second video we got of it in a minute!)

For my aunt’s class, we decided to get a group photo so all the kids wanted to help me hold the cape! It was too precious!!!

It was an absolutely amazing experience and I would do it again in a second!!! I wish that i could have done more classes!!!

My next real appearance as Elsa will be Philly Comic Con on the 20th i think… I may also visit one of my coworkers cousins on her birthday party for a bit this weekend but we’ll see how that goes…

(BTW- my costume was not entirely finished here. I still need to glitter the undershirt, do the shoes, finish the bodice, and finish the hem of the train)

A rare and important Elsa Schiaparelli ‘Hall of Mirrors’ jacket, 'Zodiac’ collection, Autumn-Winter, 1938-39,

Black silk velvet with shirred gathered panels over the shoulders, the front applied with baroque gilt strip cartouches, the strapwork in-filled with sequins in varying sizes, the centres with mirror mosaics held in place with gilt star-shaped glass studs, with four figurative moulded composition buttons, the neo-classical style heads with flowing tresses. 

This is arguably one of the most dazzling of all Schiaparelli’s creations. Her 'Zodiac’ collection, presented in August 1938, drew on two main themes - astrology and the magnificence of the Palace of Versailles. The seventeen massive archways of the Galerie des Glaces, each filled with twenty one mirrors, must have been the inspiration for the jacket decoration. Schiaparelli was a frequent visitor to Versailles where her friend Lady Mendl (Elsie de Wolfe), the celebrated American interior designer, had made her home at the Villa Trianon in the grounds. 

Elsa Train Tutorial Part 1

I bought 5m blue organza fabric, a lot of glitter (40ml in diamont colour)  and fabric glue (I took one to spray but I don’t recommend that because it never really dried and my train is now full of dirt and blurred glitter. It is not as bad as it sounds).

I didn’t made any pattern for my train but it worked out :D.

In total my train has 5 pieces, after cutting them out I sealed each one with a zig zag stitch with small width so the seam is not that visible. You have to be very careful with the fabric, mine unravelled fast. For the middle piece I took my folded fabric and pinned it to the middle of my puppets back. Then I just cut it out as I thought it would look good and like Elsas train, I unfolded the fabric and pinned it again to the puppets back. For the next two pieces I took the folded fabric (so I have the same piece for each side), pinned the upper edge to one side of the puppets back and the side of the fabric to the side of the middle piece so they have the same length. Then I just cut it out and sewed the two new pieces to each side of the middle one with a zig zag stitch. After that I did the same thing with the last two pieces.

In the second picture you can see my finished train.

I made a lot different fold snowflakes (while I was watching Dr Who). There are many patterns at google pictures how to cut out the folded paper. The easier ones I made up. Look out that the paper you use is not too thick because it gets hard to cut through all the layers.

But you can’t use those snowflakes for the lower part of the train. You have to use them as stencils to cut the snowflakes out of paper as you can see in the next picture.

First I sprayed the glue to the fabric and then put the stencil on it. Next I poured glitter over it and pulled of the stencil. With that glue it was easy to get the stencil off but I would try that on a different piece of fabric first.

And that is my lower part of my train.

After I started the upper part with the other stencils I ran out of glue and the convention was close, so I didn’t made it to buy a second can. 

I will post some pictures when I finished it and some of the pattern I made for the rest of the upper part. And I hope I can find a solution for my ‘the glue does not dry’ problem.

A rare Elsa Schiaparelli couture military inspired evening coat, 1935

Schiaparelli London label, numbered 26519, of heavy red twill ‘Rouge Gaulois’ wool by Ducharne, the triangular front yoke with six pendant gilt curleque buttons, designed by Jean Cocteau, with unfinished, top-stitched seams, half lined in red silk.

The wool used in this coat is redolent of British Horse Guards uniforms. The stiffness of the fabric emphasizes the severe, clean lines of the tailoring. 

This is me as everyone’s favorite Snow Queen and Princess!
