Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

"A little sprinkling of snow is just what we needed to make everything cozy."
The Snow Queen surveys her work with a critical eye, finally smiling with satisfaction at the knee-deep banks of crystalline sparkles that cover the ground like marshmallow fluff enriched with glittering diamond dust.

"Everything looks so sparkling, clean and soft! Who could possibly find fault with-"
A horrible round of coughing takes place offscreen, prompting Elsa to turn and look for the disturbance.

"You seriously suck, Elsa."
Nii cups her mouth with a gloved hand, attempting to stifle another rough wheeze that wants to turn into a hacking fit.
"You would cover the world in winter RIGHT when I'm sick. How am I supposed to enjoy the cold, when I HAVE a cold?"
Elsa frowns thoughtfully, even as Nii coughs again. It certainly wasn't Elsa's fault that a certain mischief-loving dream demon had spent half the night rolling around in the fresh winterfall.

Especially considering that Nii had already been complaining of a sore throat.

And most especially considering that Elsa had suggested that Nii shouldn't be out in it at the time.

But before she can form a diplomatic response, Nii has already stumbled off in search of chicken soup and a warm bed, complaining about a whole day's winter "wasted" due to the inconsiderate conspiracy hatched by Elsa's whims and Nii's own health.

"Well, I suppose I can keep it around for a little while..."
Elsa sighs, disappointed and frustrated that her powers have left someone else disappointed and frustrated. She reaches a hand heavenward, sending another gentle pulse of chilly air towards the sky. Perhaps if she can keep the snow around a little longer, then the others will want to come out and appreciate it later? Maybe Nii will feel well enough to come out and play again before it's time to send it all away.

A soft whine surprises her, and the Snow Queen whirls to see someone is already enjoying her handiwork.

"You startled me! Are you out enjoying the weather, you sweet little thing?"
Elsa laughs at the comical expression on the fluffy dog's face. Clearly there are still a few who find her winter fun, even if Nii is being a brat about it. Once again giddy with the shimmering pale wonderland around them, she stands once more, smiling at the quizzical noise her companion makes.

"Oh, don't worry about her. She'll be alright. Someone with a little cold never bothered me, anyway."
The Snow Queen smiles to herself as the collie yaps in agreement, and makes a note to herself to give the self-absorbed Nii a snowball to the head as soon as the little pest is zipping around like a hyperactive lemur again.

Elsa's dress is from a Barbie date fashion pack that I originally bought for some extra clothes for Will. I originally intended to give it to Rapunzel, but Elsa grabbed it up. Her coloration (note her gorgeous lavender eyeshadow) looks fantastic with it. We've had a sudden bout of winter weather that's doused the city with an uncommonly deep snowfall. Sadly it's evaporating fast, but hopefully we'll see more soon!

  1. Aww, that was almost as adorable as the Eugene/Rapunzel photostory!

    Ree needs to get himself put together quick, Nii's missing all the fun. *evilgrin*

    1. It's actually a housecoat from a Bratz slumber party doll. I think the set it came with was white pajamas with monkeys on them.

    1. She's the Disney Store Elsa, I hope you can find her! I fell in love with her design when the images from the (then upcoming) movie started getting real prolific and actually made a special trip to a town with a Disney Store to find her. I haven't actually seen her in stock since the movie came out, but the rumor is that another big push of merch for Frozen will happen in March when the dvd drops.

    1. Thanks Muff! I wish I'd gotten to take more snow pics, but I was in the sick boat with Nii. I hope we get more now that I'm on the mend.

  5. Adorable! And that "You startled me" picture is too cute!

    Plus I'm totally impressed that Elsa's hair stayed styled even outside in the snow!

    1. Elsa's hair has so much gel in it, it's pretty much an impregnable mass, ha ha! The pictures with the dog were a lot of fun to take. Thanks for commenting!
