I am a big fan of Disneybounding, and especially in the winter I like to do outfits for some of the Frozen characters! Anna and Elsa have so many different dresses throughout their various movies and shorts that you really have a lot of different options. I first wore this Elsa’s coronation Disneybound for my Disney cocktail party.
One thing we did at this party was ask everyone to DisneyBound – If you’re not familiar with what Disney Bounding is, you can read about it here. We had a lot of fun trying to guess who everyone was dressed as. People kept asking me if I was a more obscure character. And I said, “No, I’m an extremely popular character, just wearing a more obscure outfit!”
I love the distinct colors of this outfit and how well they go together. It’s something a little different but still a super cute outfit, Disneybound or not! So I’m excited to show you how I put this look together.
How I made my Elsa coronation Disneybound:
Elsa coronation dress
I was shopping at Target for something for my party and found this dress and decided to work off of that. And can I just say, I love this dress! It works well with a sweater and leggings for the winter, and I think it’s going to be cute for summer/spring too. I actually contemplated buying it in red as well, that’s how much I love this dress. I found a similar one here on Amazon with long sleeves for a more formal look, and this one for something short sleeved and a bit more casual.
Cape for Elsa Disneybound
In order to recreate the appearance of Elsa’s cape I actually already had the perfect outfit in my closet – a long cardigan that happened to be almost the exact same color as her cape! I had gotten it in my Golden Tote a couple of months ago. It was tough to find another sweater on Amazon that is that exact color, but I think this one comes pretty close.
Accessories for an Elsa Coronation Disneybound
Because it was winter when I was wearing this outfit, I paired it with black leggings and boots. I’m a big fan of my black suede-esque boots and wear them all the time in the winter – I actually have this exact pair from Amazon and have replaced them once within the past few years. Well worth it!
Elsa actually doesn’t wear much jewelry with any of her outfits, which I discovered as I looked at many pictures of her. But this cape does have a blue jeweled clasp, so I decided to add a blue necklace. And if you’re observant, yes – it’s actually inspired by the Titanic necklace. Finally, to complete the look, I added a gold belt. Elsa’s dress has a lot of detailing and I didn’t want to go overboard in recreating that, but she does have that lovely gold detail around the waist so I figured the belt would add a little extra oomph.
Elsa’s Hair and Makeup
I have pretty long hair, which is a bonus for Disneybounding because I can do a lot of different things with it. I actually often wear my hair in one long braid, “Elsa style.” Of course in the movie when she transforms outfits she pulls her hair out and it’s the iconic braid. So I figured what if I start with the braid and just try to put it up? That’s what I did and it actually worked surprisingly well. I just twisted the braid back into a bun. It’s not as intricate as her hair in the movie with the side twists and the bangs, but that’s the great part about Disneybounding – it doesn’t have to be identical!
I am not a makeup expert by any means and mostly use very basic stuff with some fun lip and eye colors. If you’re wondering, my eyeshadow was a combination of different colors from two Disney palettes I have – one inspired by Ariel and one from Jasmine. I used a vibrant purple from Ariel and then a lighter shimmery purple on top blended together. My lipstick is Lipsense, and the color is strawberry shortcake with the opal gloss on top.
Tips for the perfect Elsa coronation Disneybound
- Try to use what you have – a Disneybound doesn’t have to be a perfect replica, so if you have a green dress that’s similar but not the exact shade you can still make it work!
- You can make this look much more formal or casual depending on the dress and boots you wear with it.
- You can pick and choose what other accessories you might want to include. Some options I looked at but didn’t do are gloves, a small crown, or incorporating the floral pattern on her gown.
- Take a look at different pictures of Elsa in this outfit from the movie – depending on the angle and the shot you can sometimes see other details. I created a little collage for myself while I was working on this outfit.
- If you’re looking to take some fun photos this collage can also help with pose ideas, because I can be awkward about that! Take plenty and don’t be afraid to try something – if it doesn’t work you don’t have to share it!
