When we meet Elsa in Frozen, she’s still working on getting her powers under control. Imagine if she took her magic, mastered it, and became a warrior that protects Arendelle. Cosplayer MimiruCosplayDiary did that and came up with Battle Elsa. Her version of the character is three years older than what we see in the film. Mimiru went through 13 different designs before she settled on this one and strove to work important symbols like emblems from Elsa’s coronation dress and the icy look of her blue dress and corset into the design. She spent a lot of time working on the costume:
I can’t express how proud of this costume I am. 1027+ hours of work so far and still some tweaking to do before she can be considered 100% complete. Materials used include worbla finest art, wonderflex, instamorph, resin, craft foam, silk, and satins. This is a design that I created myself for the character. I wanted to capture a little bit of that Snow Queen in her. This Elsa is a little older than the film version by about three years. There are over 250 scales on the corset and I utilized emblems from Elsa’s coronation gown into the corset design. The silver details on the armour are airbrush detailing and the shirt also has been faded into a dark blue at the edges of the sleeve with airbrush (I love gradients!).
