Our mothers may have discouraged it, but playing with your food can be incredibly fun and rewarding.

Disney’s Frozen is, of course, mega-popular in Japan, as it is in many other countries around the world. But over here it’s known as Anna and the Snow Queen, and the movie’s famous song “Let It Go” is known as “Ari no Mama de” (“the truth/as I am”).
Obviously, we’ll always have a soft spot for the original version no matter how many times we hear it, but of all the many versions of the song in different languages, the Japanese version is especially beautiful. Sung by hugely popular veteran actress and singer Takako Matsu, “Ari no Mama de” is a slightly sweeter, softer around the edges version with some perfectly translated lyrics, which, as in the original, are all about self-acceptance.
But what would it sound like if “Ari no Mama de” was sung by the original English-language version’s voice of Elsa, Broadway actress Idina Menzel?
If you’ve been waiting for Disney to come up with new ideas to make their parks at Tokyo Disney Resort even more awesome than they already are, then your wish has just been answered! That’s right, Disney fans will have something big to look forward to as several new themes for the redevelopment of both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea were announced this week. And not surprisingly, part of the plans include a new area with a Frozen theme (we were wondering when that was coming). So, let’s see what Disney has in store for us.
I subscribe to a handful of beauty gurus on YouTube, and the moment Frozen turned out to be such a mega hit, I knew I had to brace myself for a rush of Elsa-inspired makeovers taking over my subscription list. True enough, the Elsa-themed tutorial videos came in like a wrecking ball and suddenly my YouTube feed was flooded with women sporting blonde braids and smokey purple eyelids.
The thing about these makeup tutorials is that many of these YouTube beauty gurus have a rather extensive collection of makeup palettes and tools, so they can easily create different looks, but the average person might not own products in all the colors required to replicate Elsa’s look. That, was until e.l.f. launched their Disney Elsa makeup series that provided the full package at affordable prices. Check out the lineup after the break!
The Frozen craze might have died down a little over the past couple of months as Baymax stood under the spotlight for a while, but then came the live-action Cinderella movie, and packed along with it was Frozen Fever, a short animation feature that brought Elsa and Anna back into the spotlight again.
As Frozen fans tremble in excitement over the mini sequel of the animation blockbuster, which was a little less snowy than the first, we couldn’t help but wonder, what would Elsa have looked like if her story was set somewhere else?
