##Putting together your Snow Queen costume##

Step 1: Raid your closet or a friend’s for a long, white or silver prom dress. You can even hit a thrift store or a formalwear store closing out prom dresses at certain seasons of the year to get one. Your dress can have sleeves or be sleeveless, whatever your preference may be. (If you’re going sleevless, I’d recommend getting a nice, faux fur wrap in white to compliment your outfit and keep you warm!)

Step 2: Head to a craft store and pick up a yard or two of white faux fur trim. You can trim the sleeves of your gown, neckline, and hemline with this to give it a snowier, more wintry feel.

Step 3: Put on some makeup! Wear some dark blue eyeshadow for a hint of mystery and put on some false lashes in silver to really make your eyes stand out. Add a shimmery cream (or body glitter) to your upper brow bone and along your cheekbones to highlight your face.

Step 4: Add some body glitter to any exposed skin like your chest, arms, and/or hands.

Step 5: Put on a pair of sparkly silver shoes and optional jewelry

Step 6: Put on a long white wig and crown yourself with a sparkling tiara. Voila! Instant Snow Queen!
