This past December, we took a trip to Florida to visit my brother and sister-in-law and while we were there, we took the girls to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. I've always been a huge Disney fan, but going to Disney World sort of sparked my interested in collecting more Disney stuff!
Being able to take snowy photos was the only good thing about the freak snowstorm we got a few weeks ago. :)
The first of a new collection I've started are the Couture de Force line of figures by Enesco.
This particular figure is inspired by the character of Elsa from the movie Frozen.
The first time I saw this figure was on the Disney Store online and she was (and still is) listed at $74.95.
I looked right past her because I did not want to pay that much money for a figurine I knew nothing about, no matter how pretty she was.
Then found her on Amazon for $37.50 which she is still listed at and I scooped her right up!
This Elsa figure is about 8 inches tall and made of stone resin. She has a pretty good weight to her and feels very well made. She is so detailed and lovely that I don't even feel as though the photos do her justice.
She has beautiful carved details in her hair and lots of encrusted jewels and faux gems throughout her hair and dress. She is not completely "movie accurate", but it's nice to see fancier interpretations of her classic, signature look.
She is holding a large single snowflake in one hand. Her other hand has a beautiful ring and both delicate wrists are decorated in shiny pearls.
She also wears a snowflake necklace and has 2 strands of dainty pearl straps draped over each shoulder. Here you can also see a bit more detail of her hair.
The movement and textures of her dress are gorgeous!
The cape section of her dress, I think, is made from some sort of hard acrylic. Each shimmery snowflake is hand-painted on. I love that the cape looks like a shell of ice.
Her face looks a bit different from her animated character, but I like it even more.
I didn't even notice the slight defect in her lip paint until I zoomed into this photo!
Overall, she is a lovely collectible figure and I'm really glad to have gotten her at that nice discounted price. For now she sits on our bookshelf next to Cinderella who I hope to review as well.
Enesco.com has the newest figures out, which are GORGEOUS. They are Disney princesses dressed in Art Deco inspired couture. Here is a link to check them out! How cute is Snow White?? It also looks like they have a few other versions of Elsa as well.
So far, I have seen these Disney Couture de Force figures in person at both Barnes and Noble as well as Hallmark.
Amazon.com had her listed at the best price (nearly 50% less) and they have many of the other characters listed at less than retail price as well.
Just as a disclosure, links leading to Amazon.com are affiliate links, but I wouldn't recommend them if they didn't have such a good price! :)
Thanks, as always for reading and have a nice weekend!
