Like a lot of children her age, my daughter LOVES Disney's Frozen and I have to admit I'm quite a fan too! Her birthday is coming up next month and one of the first things she asked for was an Anna Dress. Just like I did as her age, she loves dressing up and already has rather full dress up box including Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Sofia, pirates, a couple of witches and a frog!
So it was perfect timing when the lovey folks at Otley Run Fancy Dress offered us the chance to review one of the beautiful Frozen dresses they have just started stocking.
They have two Frozen themed dresses available; a gorgeous ice blue Elsa dress with sheer sleeves covered in glittery snowflakes and a beautifully regal green coronation style Anna dress with gold trimmings. Both dresses are available in sizes ranging from 2 - 3 to 9 - 10 for just £18.99 with £3.75 delivery.
Elizabeth of course chose the Anna Coronation dress which arrived well packaged in just a few days.
There was no way I could keep it from until her birthday so we popped round to the grandparents house to have a photoshoot in their garden...
You may or may not be able to tell that I spent around forty minutes trying to perfect an 'Anna Coronation Day' hairstyle, I don't think i'll be giving up my day job!
The quality of the dress is lovely, as I mentioned above we have quite a collection of dress up costumes and this is much more comparable to the ones purchased from the Disney Store than the cheaper supermarket princess ones we have. (Although just for clarity I do want to mention that this dress is not Disney branded in any way, the label shows the brand of 'baby shop'.)
The bodice is a velvet like material with a printed design in pink and green and has a gold fabric trim and a shaped gold plastic disc stuck on to the neckline. The sleeves are a vibrant jade green and puff out over the shoulders. The skirt has a straight underskirt and then a full sheer skirt in a pale green colour with printed pink gold and green pattern.
We ordered the age 4-5 and this is a good fit on my skinny almost 4 year old, it is a full length dress on her which reaches the ankles and I can see her having plenty of room to grow and play in this for a good time to come.
Overall I would say this is a great quality dress up costume that although not Disney branded is instantly recognisable as an Anna Coronation Dress from Frozen. At £18.99 it's a competitive for what is probably one of the most sought after fancy dress costumes for girls this year!
My daughter loves it and has declared that she will be wearing it when we go to see Disney on Ice later this month... I'd better get practicing my Anna hair styles!
The lovey folks at Otley Run Fancy Dress are offering you, my lovely readers the chance to win the other Frozen themed costume that they stock. This would make a wonderful gift for any little Frozen fan!
