Lindsay is the owner of Her tutorial on how to make this costume can be found here.

Jessica Hebert of Houston, TX, won an honorable mention, and was award $20 in party games.

Jessica wrote in: "I was disappointed in the mass-produced Elsa dresses, and I wanted to make something more movie-accurate. So... I did. The only part of this dress I didn't do, really, was sewing on the sequins. All 20,000 rhinestones, yes, but not the sequins. My daughter absolutely loves it, I just need to find a wig that fits right and isn't itchy."

Betsy of Holland, MI: "Our sweet little girl was "POPCORN"! I saw the idea on pintrest and knew it was perfect! She was only 4 months old, so I didn't really want to dress her all up in a huge costume. With this, I was able to carry her in the baby bijorn baby carrier. I made the costume out of felt and attached it to the front of the baby carrier. For her hat, I popped some popcorn and hot glued it to a white knit hat. We got SO MANY compliments on the costume, she was so cute! It was a costume I had not seen before so I was excited to make it for her!"
