When I was about 8 I watched a movie where a Snow Queen wore a beautiful dress made of ice that sparkled like a diamond. The Snow Queen's dress was so incredibly memorable that I decided to be a Snow Queen for Halloween to outshine all the other kids.
But my mom decided that a snowflake costume was much cuter for a little girl. I tried to explain to her that to be a Snow Queen was important to me but she thought she knew better. Since she was the one who was making my costume, she made it very clear that there was no way I could be a Snow Queen. I prayed that maybe my snowflake costume would still look like something a queen would wear.
All my hopes died the day when the costume was ready. It was a short skirt with tinsel trim and paper snowflakes glued to a white t-shirt! I was so disappointed that I almost died. But I just thanked her. :(
I loved her more than anything in the world, but there was a reason why I didn’t say anything: my other option was my older sister’s fox costume that she outgrew and could not wear anymore. The tail was nowhere to be found and, honestly, it didn't look like a fox... more like a guinea pig! Believe me, I was not a picky child! I just wanted to win a competition and get the first prize: a giant bag of candy.
You probably guessed that I didn’t win anything that day.
Years passed and still that Snow Queen dress was haunting me. I had to design a dress inspired by my memories. My new Snow Queen Dress is much shinier and is made of thousands of Swarovski crystals, pearls, tons of rhinestones, and beads. It is definitely something a Queen would wear!
