I have just been sitting and staring at this for the longest time. I mean, LOOK AT IT. Look how outstanding this animation is. All by hand. The way her hair moves, the way the lines in that skirt move, everything is perfect. It’s hypnotizing.
and i didn’t noticed it the first or the second time i watched the movie
but its so beautiful because Tiana’s father says that he wants that people from all walks of life to come and eat at their restaurant and Tiana later on tells Naveen “Folks are gonna be comin’ together from all walks of life just to get a taste of our food” and here you have the king and queen of Maldovia sitting together eating with Tiana’s mother a poor tailor from New Orleans equally and Tiana got all she ever wanted working hard for it its just soo beautiful
(also i fucking love the fact they threat the douchebags in the bank with a crocodile)
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
