Elsa, Queen of Arendelle by luvmynynix

Elsa, Queen of Arendelle

Recently I saw a viral bolg about a mom and a daughter who, on a whim, made a dress out of construction paper...just for something to do on a rainy day. The daughter loved it so much it became a regular thing and now they make red carpet dresses on a regular basis. Here is the article: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelzarrell/this-4-year-old-and-her-mom-make-incredible-paper-versions-o

When I saw that I knew I had to try, as it would be a great photo op for 365. So today was the day! We made our version of the dress Elsa wore in Frozen (after her powers were revealed).

Here she is in a side by side with the Disney pic: http://365project.org/luvmynynix/miscellaneous/2014-01-27

Here is a full length pic (the "snowflakes" on the dress were her idea...too cute!): http://365project.org/luvmynynix/miscellaneous/2014-01-28

Love the idea, the execution and your daughter's dramatic pose. A fav. I don't see a link to the side by side comparison.

I love the pose and her expression! What particularly caught my interest was with her hand open it looks as though light rays are emitting from her hand and a star.

Hi Laurie. We're partnered for get pushed this week. Firstly this is a fantastic shot, love the soft tones and you have a very beautiful model. Now on to a challenge. I noticed you'd had a first go at HDR in your challenges album. I was thinking about a challenge to try this again ideally in an urban setting (not sure where you live so hope it's not too rural). I don't follow that many people on the site so I'm sure there are lots of amazing HDR shots to be seen but I see we both follow Taffy, who I think does some fantastic quite subtle HDR shots and Michael Elliot who took some v cool HDR shots last week. Have a look at them, and others, for inspiration and see what you can come up with. Hope that sounds ok. I've had a lot of pushes recently about either photographing in colour or photographing food. Something different would be great. Sorry about the essay! Rachel

March 9th, 2014  
OMG you get a great big star for your mothering. Take a bow. And your daughter is an actress in the making.
March 9th, 2014  
Adorable! What a fantastic idea. I've just sent the link to my sister who I hope will give this a go with my niece. Fantastically creative shot.
