The Moment 'Frozen' Made Me Consider a Drag Career

You've seen Frozen, right?  Right

I keep thinking of one moment in particular.  When Elsa sings Defying Gravity  "Let It Go" at the top of an icy mountain, she declares that she will no longer be afraid of the powers that she has.  The powers that kept her in a literal icy, mopey chamber in her wing of the castle.  Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa, belts her face off, impressing soccer moms who may recognize her from Wicked and annoying the pants of the musical theater geeks that hate "Over the Moon"/"The Wizard and I" mash-ups that plague YouTube.  

You can watch the entire sequence here!  I would suggest, though, that if you haven't seen Frozen yet, don't watch it until you see it on the big screen.

Near the end of the song, Elsa quite literally lets her hair down as the ice palace she builds grows and grows.  And then...Elsa decides to change her wardrobe.  She magically changed the somewhat dowdy princess dress to something more sexy.  Her new ice-colored dress is skin tight, and it features a knee-high slit going up one leg.  Not only that, she gives herself a snowflake laced cape for some DRAAAAMAAA!!!

The girls on RuPaul's Drag Race wish they had Elsa's powers.  They could provide themselves with a new wardrobe, and throw some real icy shade at the other queens.  Elsa doesn't care that she's been basically banished from her village.  They lost a girl with some much fabulousness.  The dress change and subsequent strut is enough for anyone to consider making a tape for submission for RuPaul's next season.  

You could see Ru loving this look on the runway, right?  Right.
