I relate to Princess Anna because I too have had to live in my older sister’s shadow. My sister is a lot older and was a prodigy in school. I’m not nearly as good as she was at anything. I had to miss my 14th birthday because it was the same day as her graduation from Yale. I only got in to community college. I don’t see how Anna is never jealous of Elsa. I always wish I could be someone other than “____’s little sister.” I’m just not gifted or special. I don’t have “magic powers.”
I just came back from a trip to Disneyland and it was my dream to meet Elsa since Frozen was released. I got to meet her and Anna and it was the best character meet I had while I was there. I showed Elsa my tattoo of her and told her that she helped me get through a really tough patch in my life. She made this big fuss of me and gave me all these hugs and made me feel so loved 🙂 After that meet, I ended up bawling my eyes out afterwards, not believing that I met my idol <3
silly, so I’ll never tell anyone I know, but I like that Elsa looks just like
her mom. I’m albino but other than that, I look exactly like my mom. It’s one
of the many reasons I headcanon Elsa as albino, but more than that, it just
makes me smile every time I watch the movie.
Although it’s been a while since Frozen came out, I remember really relating to Elsa when it came out (I was 13). I had started to suffer from depression and chronic pain due to long term bullying and medical conditions- but these were all invisible so it was ignored by my school. Now that I’m getting better I hope Disney can make a film with a bit of a stronger metaphor for depression/invisible illness as it’s important to have characters to relate to if you feel different.
To be honest, I think that Elsa having a love interest for Frozen 2 would be great. A plot about Elsa finding someone other than her sister that supports her would be really sweet. And I can’t stand how some people are annoyed with Elsa having a FEMALE love interest, because they think children don’t know about homosexuality, but a majority of kids today know more about it than the parents themselves. Just to say, I’ll be happy if she has a love interest, either if it is female or male
I was so excited to finally get to do a cosplay of Elsa this year and attend a local con. We were all going to meet up for a Disney princess photoshoot, we talked and bonded a lot, but when I sent them pictures of me in-costume so we could identify each other at the con, they stopped responding. Eventually one girl spelled it out for me and said “the only princess somebody like you could be is Tiana”. They avoided me at the con and did their photoshoot without me.
I really hate that people are so negative about Frozen just because it’s popular. Frozen is a really special film for me. It came out at a time when my relationship with my older sister was strained. She was like Elsa. She was scared and didn’t know how to deal with me. I was like Anna. I was lively and I wanted to know her but she shut me out. I thought she hated me. Frozen gave us common ground and brought us together in the most perfect way, for that it will always hold a place in my heart.
