We will put this over-the-top hoop into our curiosities section, rather than where it would normally go

Ed N.:

"An interesting ice novelty - this is a life-size likeness of Elsa (from Frozen) and she's pretty much 'frozen' here. Seen at an ice festival in southern Colorado, recently carved into a solid block of ice using power assisted tools, saws, knives, etc. There were several such full-size ice sculptures all on the 'Frozen' theme.

(I believe the hint of 'hoops' seen in the skirt are actually where the ice layers join. It wasn't one completely solid chunk of ice; it was layers stacked up which then re-froze themselves back together.}

   A pretty cold result, but the artist had the right idea about fashion."
