I should totes explain this.
I saw a bunch of racebent disney princesses..
and then I saw a racebent Elsa…. and I just kinda thought of this.
It’s an Aztec Snow Queen. Her outfit is a goddess-like one. (Cuz not all the aztecs dressed like that.)
So, like… I actually made her outfit based on Chalchiuhtlicue, Tlaloc, Tezcatlipoca, and Coyolxahqui’s. (Chalchiuhtlicue was the wife of Tlaloc, she was the goddess of living(moving water, just like Tlaloc was the god of rain and water, they were the responsibles of rain, waves, ice and snow. Tezcatlipoca was the jaguar warrior, the god of night, winter and material things. Coyolxauhqui was the moon, well.. her head became the moon, it’s a long story.)
So like, I thought that… since she had some sort of control over ice/snow, the people would want her to become a goddess/god wife. And the way for aztecs to do such things, was sacrificing the girl, to give her to the god they wanted her to marry or to hlp her get to the land of the gods, then the high priest would wear her skin as a tribute.
So, she is prepared for that but she doesn’t want to die so he runs away to the mountain, freezes a lot of people, and sets an eternal winter on the lands she lives in, so everyone now knows her as the snow queen in the mountain. Her sister then says she will go and make her stop the winter.
So….Aztec Elsa would be named Izel, and Anna should be Ayauh 
IDK guise, I just had to.
I’m sorry.

Don’t you dare apologize for this. It’s beautiful and so freaking amazing. I want you to take my money to make that film HAPPEN.

Well said.

I’m naturally suspicious of people who don’t dig this guy. He’s brilliant.

Interesting fact is that this same theory can be applied to so many historical female women: Marie Antoinette, Empress Elisabeth, Catherine the Great, Catherine de Medici.

When a woman threatens the standardised ideals of the patriarchy, she must be reduced down to the base forms of womanhood, often as prescribed by the Church, which was the base of power in those days.

Despite the fact that times have changed, these images of womanhood are so beaten into our consciousness that we have to make a conscious effort to look beyond them.

Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”

As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal? But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.”
