Let me start with “First Wave” feminism
- The first wave feminism movement began in 19th century.
- Before this, women In Europe and North America (although to less extreme of an extent were not allowed to do the following:
- Maintain an independent job.
- Divorce their husbands.
- Charge a…
Elsa is still the antagonist. The word does not = villain. An antagonist is just a character that provides hurdles for the protagonist (Anna) to overcome. Doesn’t mean they can’t have their own issues, but Elsa’s magic is the main conflict in the story, which Anna has to deal with.Conceal, don’t feel. Don’t let them know.
"[With Elsa, it] definitely was intentional to show anxiety and depression." - JENNIFER LEE (x)
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS THIS CHARACTER IS SO IMPORTANT. Because little girls are obsessed with her, they’re latching on to her. Little girls love Elsa. And she’s a Disney Princess with major neuroses. (I know this is Anna’s story but Elsa’s more popular.) And it shows a main female character with major anxiety and depression issues, and it shows her as a powerful, strong, loving person around those issues, and it shows her as an incredibly positive character.
A lot of people are saying that the story would’ve been better if Elsa’d been the antagonist, and she was originally intended to be until that changed in development. And you know what, it’s for the best because she’s a protagonist with mental issues. It’s easy and common to give those to a villain. Villains are twisted and they hurt people because they’re not Good People. Disney Princesses might not be perfect but they’re damn close to it and their faults are charming and cute and not crippling. Elsa’s issues and her failure to deal with them are crippling.
So many teens and adults have identified with her issues, and seeing them portrayed in a positive and beloved character is so fucking important, because children see that not just scary weirdos have mental issues. Elsa hurts people because of her issues. She doesn’t mean to but she hurts her parents and sister and kingdom and strangers, emotionally and physically. And she’s a Good Guy. Not only is she a Good Guy, she’s a Disney Princess. They’re not supposed to hurt people — except oh maybe hurt feelings because they were following their dreams or something saccharine like that.
And she makes a series of bad choices, selfish choices, because she can’t deal with her issues. Just like real people. She’s not a bad person because she makes bad choices stemming from her neuroses. Little kids see someone who’s awesome! with anxiety and depression and they see that she’s more than just her issues, and she’s deserving of love
After making Elsa’s hair guide for one anon, I received another anon asking for more Frozen sisters’ hair guides, so I made them and put them all here. Apparently, they’re useful! What do you know, hahaha.
PS.: You can show and tell me if you use it! :3
Bless this post.
Neightan Rot has a rainbow of colours going on in his hair and on his clothes. Mattel, please make him a gay character.
Draculaura and Rebecca are the two oldest and most traditional ghouls, and they’ve been fused together. It seems like either of them would be a good candidate to harbour some homophobia or prejudice, but together it’s almost certain. Draculaura practically holds the patent on hetero love, I can see why she might feel threatened. And Frankie is the central point of the movie, and also the most open-minded.
This seems like an amazing opportunity to teach some tolerance, and for some characters to learn acceptance and love.
I couldn’t find a tutorial on how to do this, so I figured it out myself and thought I should share my knowledge with cosplayers everywhere.
Alright so Step 1:
Start with a wig on a wig stand and separate the hair where you want to put the weft (I’m using a Jareth Long in apple…
