FAIRYTALE MEME: 9 Fairytales - [7/9] Snow White
“The huntsman obeyed and led her away, but when he had drawn his hunting knife and was about to pierce Snow White’s innocent heart, she began to weep, and said, ‘Oh, dear huntsman, spare my life. I shall run into the wild forest and never come home again.’”
Problems with having a really good memory for words: remembering extremely random and extremely small details about people and ending up in seriously awkward situations when they ask how you knew that and “I read it on a post you made on your blog seven years ago” sounds like a rather creepy thing to answer.

Oh, Elsa. What are we going to do with you.
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
I liked it. It wasn’t quite what I expected (I wasn’t following things very closely and I got it in my head that it would be darker and closer in atmosphere to Cocteau’s version, but it turned out to be a lot more lighthearted instead), but I still found it really enjoyable.
(I thought it could have done with less CGI, though, expecially since some of it was a bit ehh.)
Malá Morská Víla // The Little Mermaid (Miroslava Šafránková - 1976)
Fun fact: Miroslava Šafránková who played the title role in The Little Mermaid (“Malá mořská víla”, Czechoslovakia, 1976) is a younger sister of Libuše Šafránková aka Cinderella from Three Wishes for Cinderella (“Tři oříšky pro Popelku”, Czechoslovakia, 1973). The Little Mermaid film took advantage of their similar appearance and Libuše Šafránková plays the foreign princess the prince marries in the end.

I asked my mom to cut my hair a little bit because it was starting to get ruined at the ends and she insisted on “styling” it as well but she never had a clue how curly hair works and she won’t believe me when I tell her that’s not how so now I look like a dandelion.
How about a kiss, Saumensch?
He stood waist-deep in the water for a few moments longer before climbing out and handing her the book. His pants clung to him, and he did not stop walking. In truth, I think he was afraid. Rudy Steiner was scared of the book thief’s kiss. He must have longed for it so much. He must have loved her so incredibly hard. So hard that he would never ask for her lips again and would go to his grave without them.
