  1. Oh my gosh–I downloaded this…last night/this morning?–and I devoured it in a few hours. Awesome material, a great issue 😀 .

    Yay! Frozen was awesome, I was a bit wary, but–I actually liked it a bit better than I expected. Have you seen Brave?

      1. Can I just say that I am amazed by the professionalism of this latest issue, I mean, Femnista and Costume Chronicles before it have always had fairly high standards, but with this last issue, I find myself really amazed that I’m looking at a product I didn’t have to pay for! Fantastic articles, soothing visual layout, nice font, design etc; just all around gorgeous!

        Yup I think I know the scenes from Brave that you mean, where I went “Really Disney?” (OK Pixar but you know what I mean), they marred an otherwise great film. I think I might even have liked it a teensy bit more than either Tangled or Frozen. In addition to the soundtrack and scenery, I really liked the themes. Not just the Mother-Daughter bonding (though that was great!) but also the idea that Merida said she didn’t feel ready to get married, and therefore in the end she didn’t marry. Refreshing! It really irks me how in a lot of TV series a character will declare “I just don’t feel ready for a relationship…” only to have all their hesitations slip away when Designated Love Interest grabs them in a lip-lock by the end of the episode. * eyeroll *

        1. Thank you. I’m not sure what I’ve done different this go around, but compliments are always lovely! 🙂

          I did like the mother/daughter aspect of Brave. That was very sweet. I liked how feisty Merida is — “I’ll be shootin’ for ME OWN HAND!” 😀 I think I connected a little bit more with Frozen because Elsa reminds me a bit of myself — an inclination to hide away from the world, to protect other people.

  2. Have you seen Frozen yet? I’m interested to get your opinion on it. I thought it was wonderful, original, and entertaining. Also, the music was excellent (probably because the main actors/actresses and the songwriting team are all Broadway vets).

    1. Yes! I thought it was wonderful! I loved how we followed two princesses — both with very different dreams. Elsa’s side of the story spoke more to me, because like her, I tend to be somewhat fearful and shut myself away emotionally from people. But I LOVED the fact that a prince didn’t save either one of them — Anna saved her sister. THAT was marvelous. 🙂

      1. I know! For once Disney got the concept of true love right. The best part was that the movie kept surprising me, (the prince thing, the act of true love) which is hard to do since I can usually tell where a story is going.
