    That young woman’s resemblance to the cartoon version of Elsa is quite amazing and perhaps a bit unsettling too. The Frozen Effect continues unabated. – Vincent

    I have an urge to face paint a tiger onto John Travolta.

  • Lindzgrl

    Yeah, that’s an almost uncanny resemblance! She’d be a shoo-in to work in one of the Disney parks, which I hear is actually a pretty amazing experience.

  • Bird on a Beverly

    Cosplayerrrrrrs! We’re scary like that.

  • Jared Robinson

    Is that her real hair? Is that her real eye color? On the one hand, I’m so happy for Marlo. I’m a dad too and I know what it’s like to be there on those occasions when your child is well and truly awe struck. On the other hand, this young woman’s resemblance to the character is so uncannily complete as to almost be surreal.

    I know I will totally like ruin my street cred by saying this and/or be told to never, ever, in my whole life, under punishment of Radiohead sing-a-long marathon, write anything ever again on this blog, but (you know what’s coming, right…?):

    I. Like. Frozen.

    I like the fact that my 12 year old, my 5 year old and my belt out “In Summer” -completely out of tune of course – when I drive them to school. I cry a little bit every time Anna says “Oookkkk,byyyy” to Elsa because she sounds just like my little one when she’s sad. I love that we all curl up on a bed before bedtime and watch the facking movie for a 1,458,783 time, including my husband. I love “Let it Go” animation so much that I pretend I can also
    do all that when no one is watching. I love to say “tick-tock-tick-tock” in that funny twist-your-tongue kind of way. I love that silly Swen. Swen is the coolest reindeer ever. I mean, Rudolf
    who?

    I can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on…but I like you, so I won’t.

    And Rachel, if your eyes are really that blue and are not created by magic of contact lenses, then fuck – life really is not fair at all…

  • jodi

    I should of got an elsa instead of a complicated mystery game ;)

  • Torchness

    Okay, so. Please don’t hurt me, everybody. But we saw the movie, and the plot…wasn’t there. I was so disappointed. Not the biggest fan. I’m sorry! *ducks*

  • Joanna Sequeira

    Let it gooooooooooooooooooooo…. Let it gooooooooooooooo…. I’ve watched the movie about 18 times and still cannot tell you the rest of the song. And of course, OF COURSE, my two year old loves the movie and everyone feels like gifting her Frozen movies/stuff. I have mentioned in no uncertain terms is anybody allowed to give her the soundtrack, if they even think about it they will die. We’ll see if the grand-mom’s actually listen.
    I do have to admit, I liked it… liked only because it’s reached that if I have to watch it again I may poke my eyes out levels.
    And she really does look like Elsa and her face painting technique is spot on, and God really is unfair in the good genes game.

  • Fantasyland

    Umm, “Whoever wrote that movie and those songs” would be none other than Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, creators of the worldwide smash-hit Broadway musicals “Avenue Q” and “The Book of Mormon.” Of course they made a deal with the devil.

  • Rrrandall

    Or maybe a bear?

  • MojoMark

    Makes me wanna build a snowman

  • Michelle S

    Elsa had to wear ice-blue contacts, but Marlo has the real thing! Lovely pics. <3

  • Kaycee

    It could be one of Elsa’s elves. She sends them if she is too busy making toys to leave her Ice Castle.

  • JenniferW2323

    Isn’t she lovely! Remarkably like the character. I have a 15 year old son, and watched that movie that EVERYONE was talking about. It was sweet.

    I’ve also discovered that my niece is a fan. A friend of their family sent my niece some ladies evening gloves, and my sister-in-law shared an adorable photo of her with her arms outstretched with too-big-for-her-hands gloves on.

  • Rachel

    I don’t care what you say – I love Frozen as much as my kids. Do you want to build a snowman?

  • Jen Moore

    Ha ha

  • KC

    I loved Frozen too, but dang if those songs don’t get stuck in your head for days!

    Marlo looks adorable. That kid is too funny :-)

  • Jen Moore

    We recently named our new dog Elsah (did not know about the Frozen phenomenon). Now kids come up to pet the dog and find out her name and their eyes GET HUGE and then they exclaim, “like Queen Elsa!” I don’t have the heart to break it to them that it’s not about the movie but the small town where my husband and I met 25 years ago.

  • Lauren3

    Love that last pic of ‘lil Chipped Tooth Bobo.

  • Kodi

    Holy shit, even I believe it’s the real Elsa — could she be any more true to character?

  • kmpinkel

    I took my 6 year old son to Target to get one of those little stuffed animals with the ginormous eyes. He had to have another one, but its his money, so hey, why not? He turned the corner and saw the “Frozen” dvd and dropped all ideas of the stuffed animal and blew his $20 on this movie. I have 12 year old and 5 year old daughters, but my son is the one who had to have it. cracks me up, of course the 5 year old is the only one watching it.

  • talonsage

    Ughhhhhhhhh!! I feeeeel your pain!! My husband loves that stupid movie I suspect more than my daughter. I think it’s okay, but only okay. But I’m sick of it and I want to cold-cock him every time he tries to pull a Frozen out of his mouth. (Important Information: The man cannot carry a tune in a bucket, nor can he be bothered to get quotes CORRECT. Both drive me IN.SANE.

    I am SO over it and I never even bothered to see it in the theater. HE, on the other hand took our 14 year old daughter and 8 year old niece to a matinee just last Wednesday.

    I took a nap.

  • Gem Wilder

    My husband sat down to watch Frozen with our toddler. He lasted one song before he started fast-forwarding through every musical number.

  • http://www.maybediaries.com Tasha Batsford

    Just out of the corner of my eye there I thought Elsa was doodling on Marlo’s face … and not in a nice way. I think that tells you everything you need to know about my view of that film.

  • faydean

    We just now saw Frozen because we never go to a theater any more…we have huge tvs and a pull down projector and thousands of movies here…and I hate people, so there’s that. Anyway, both my girls had been hearing about Frozen (and THAT song) for months. Both had decided, without ever seeing it, that they HATED it with a passion. I wasn’t too keen about it either from what I’d seen and heard. But, needless to say, my husband ordered the stupid thing and we watched it. The 9 year old was lukewarm on it. My husband thought it was “typical modern Disney”, but my older daughter and I LOATHED it. It actually grated on my nerves so bad I nearly didn’t make it all the way through watching. But then again, I am that one parent who does NOT want to take her kids to Disneyworld. In fact, the idea comes as close to being tortured that I can think of. I LOVE old school Disney…Snow White, Bambi, Lady and the Tramp. I love old Mickey Mouse and Donald…and even old school Disneyworld, circa 1952-1965. I started falling off the Disney radar however right around Beauty and the Beast and all those shows where tween girls dress like sluts and end up in rehab after selling millions of dollars in Disney merchandise. I have NO clue was to why this movie is so popular. Out of all the other overrated Disney princess crap churned out over the past 20 years, this, by far, is the worst one. Yet…there is the song every other second and merchandise on every store shelf. Oh, wait a sec…now I understand why it’s so popular! Disney has cast a spell on a nation hungry for Chinese made bedazzled junk and out of work Broadway singers dubbing for computer generated princesses whose parents (or mother typically) always DIE!!!!!!!!!!

    I have four boys. All I know about Frozen is that it was a movie out over Christmas. Envy me at your leisure.

  • Alexsulliv

    Whoa, is it me or is this Marlo grown-up?! Of course she would have to poison her hair with chemicals to get it that blonde but she has the blue eyes, imagination, free spirit and more importantly that dimple to seal the deal as a lifetime Elsa at Disney!

  • Teal

    That last picture just about made my non-childbearing ovaries explode!

  • Blu

    Somebody needs a cookie.

  • faydean

    Make it chocolate chip. Thanks.

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    Sheesh!

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    :) nope. nope. I’m a hair and makeup artist, so I specialize in transforming myself.Thanks!

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    ^^^best response ever^^^

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    Rest assured… I tried a zillion different contact lenses before I found some that I loved.

  • Jelena Milojevic

    Wops, did I call you Rachel…? Sorry, Katrina darling, my brain was taking a leave of its senses yesterday!
    In any case you look stunning, job superbly done! And thank you for clarifying this – for some reason it makes me feel better :) !

  • Jared Robinson

    Well, your skill and talent are unquestionable at this point. Keep up the spectacular work and if you ever decide you want to give software testing a try, give me shout. We can always use someone with your attention to detail. :)

  • August

    I thought I would feel the same way after listening to Frozen in the car about six times on a road trip to California. We bought it for the road trip because our kids hadn’t seen it yet, so it would keep them entertained, and they watched it again and again. So after listening to it, I thought, plus all the hype, I thought I would hate it. But I actually kind of like it. I don’t think the music is all it’s cracked up to be, but it’s fun and even my boys sing along with it.

  • August

    Not everyone has to “poison” their hair to get it that blonde. My cousin has platinum blonde hair just that color that is completely natural.

  • Alexsulliv

    Obviously that color occurs naturally, I was only referring to Marlo as she doesn’t have that blonde a hair color :)

  • Jenn

    Since you’re not a big Disney fan (I’m assuming? hehe) I’ll let it slide that Disney World wasn’t around circa 1952-1965 but Disneyland was. I’ll send over a batch of warm choc chip cookies though :)

  • Andrea

    you DID a FABULOUS job recreating yourself!!!!!! WOW!!! And I’m sorry everyone but I like the movie too and the soundtrack. BUT Brave is still my favourite!

  • faydean

    Dangit, I knew that! We just watched a really cool documentary about Disneyland that came on the Saving Mr. Banks DVD. I stand corrected. Sorry to all the sensitive Disney people, but you must admit, Walt would be hiding in his vault over some of the stuff modern Disney does! Call me old fashioned, but I miss real animation. Though I could do without all Disney movies making mothers die or be evil, lol. And don’t even get me started on the subliminal messages! LOL

  • faydean

    I can not wait to tell my 9 year old that I pissed Elsa off!!

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    Nah. I don’t “piss off” easily. I’m a princess, remember? :D .
    Just a lot of unnecessary negative feelings and energy wasted on something meant to be fun and overall positive. Just… Sheesh! Must be rough to be so agitated!

  • Katrina Fisher Nelson

    Thanks so much! :)

  • faydean

    Not really agitated. Just don’t like Frozen, nor the Disney machine of today. To each his own. My girls both dressed like princesses and the Little Mermaid for years when they were younger. Thankfully, that phase is phasing out. It was sweet for a time…and we saw them skate on ice like a million other little girls etc. I was a much bigger fan of Brave…a girl with a bow and arrow, now that’s something I get into. Ice? Doesn’t really do it for me. Maybe I just hate winter?

  • Heather Armstrong

    You were so amazing! And the fact that you crochet? Fantastic. Thanks for the great time you provided my daughter. She is still in awe.

  • Evsmarie

    Apparently I was living under a large rock, because after we named our youngest daughter Elsa in February, I received a text from my hubby wondering if we had just named our poor child after a Disney character. I was all, “Wha?” A quick Google later and I was banging my head against the hospital bed. I have loved the name since 2004. Disney can kiss my sagging butt. We heart the movie around here, but I am only two months into this child and I’m already tired of the, “after Frozen?” questions.

  • Odette Roulette

    I have to say … if I have to see a reenactment of the entire movie from beginning to end by my six year and her friends one more time, I might start crying. I’m already screaming on the inside. Worse, I found MYSELF humming “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” the other day. DAMN IT ALL TO HELL.
