"She was so beautiful, wonderfully delicate and grand: but made of ice all through, dazzling, glittering ice- and yet she was alive. Her eyes blazed out like two bright stars, but there was no peace or rest in them."
I finally read the original story of the "Snow Queen." I liked it, but it was kinda wierd. Ironically, the Snow Queen was hardly in it, but I really like the description of her character, especially when Kay first sees her. I like that Gerda's grandmother tells them that the snowflakes are "white bees" and like bees they have a queen.
This is how I pictured her when Kay first sees her. The dress is covered in snowflake lace an, although you can't really see it to well here, the bottom of the dress fades into a "snowstorm." Yes, this outfit is a bit "Gaga" but I'm ok with that!
