Dressing the Snow Queen


The Snow Queen, by Erroll Le Cain

"A few snow-flakes were falling, and one, the largest of all, remained lying on the edge of a flower-pot. The flake of snow grew larger and larger; and at last it was like a young lady, dressed in the finest white gauze, made of a million little flakes like stars. She was so beautiful and delicate, but she was of ice, of dazzling, sparkling ice; yet she lived; her eyes gazed fixedly, like two stars; but there was neither quiet nor repose in them. She nodded towards the window, and beckoned with her hand..."

The Snow Queen, by H.J. Ford

"The snow-flakes grew larger and larger, till at last they looked just like great white fowls. Suddenly they flew on one side; the large sledge stopped, and the person who drove rose up. It was a lady; her cloak and cap were of snow. She was tall and of slender figure, and of a dazzling whiteness. It was the Snow Queen..."

Not just any pretty crystal or platinum tiara will do. For the Snow Queen, it must be jagged, spiky, or snowflake shaped.

Suppose the Snow Queen carries a handbag - what does she keep in it? Candy for little boys? Chapstick for her wintry dry lips?
