All pictures are dedicated to Princess Anna, and some of the to the Anna queen of Arendelle. More specifically, to Anna's outfits and it's details, as well as information about their creation.
Anna's dress from the beginning of the Frozen 2 movie
Anna is trying to figure out where she fits in. Does she handle matters of state, or is she just there to throw parties and banquets? Does she get to have her own life, with her own wants and goals? And what about Kristoff? What’s next for them as a couple?
Anna's travel outfit from the Frozen 2 movie
Our initial designs for Anna in Frozen 2 made her look too young. We tried to keep her double braids because they seemed iconic, but we ended up putting her hair in a single braid that wraps around at the nape of her neck then falls down freely, which helped give her a more mature look.
Anna’s travel outfit was originally designed for Elsa, but as Elsa’s character shifted, the outfit no longer reflected who she was. We loved the design, though, and used the. original silhouette and colors intended for Elsa as the basis for Anna’s main outfit. The skirt and cloak became shorter, and at one point we tried adding a bolero jacket. The clothes are functional for travel, but Anna still had to be recognizable as royalty, so they’re very well made and have nice details.
Anna's queen of Arendelle dress
Anna's epilogue outfit is made up of multiple fabrics, including wool, velvet, and silk, and is heavily embroidered. Green, purple, and black are the main colors, and the Arendelle wheat symbol is the primary motif. Velvet, silk, and embroidery all have anisotropic highlights—a shine that has direction and movement to it—which provides contrast to the matte wool. The needlework of the embroidery has to stand out against the other materials, but no one material or color should draw the eye more than the rest. We try to maintain a truth to materials, and each has nique qualities that ultimately have to work together.
Anna's engagement ring is made from an orange diamond in a yellow and white-gold setting inspired by the crocus and wheat motifs that appear throughout Frozen 2. I imagined that Kristoff was drawn to the stone, which the trolls dug up for him, because orange diamonds are rare and the vibrant color resembles Anna’s rich, auburn hair.
