Now that I am done advertising for Disney (they should really pay me for this) I would like to talk about the costuming in the movie. I say costuming, but really it is the drawing of clothes on the computer animated characters. It is obvious, if not only from the characters' names and snowy, mountainous landscape, but also from the clothing that this movie has a largely scandinavian and nordic influence.

Kristoff's costume has the look of the traditional costume of the Saami people (the indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting the Arctic area of Sápmi, which today encompasses parts of far northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Kola Peninsula of Russia, and the border area between south and middle Sweden and Norway.--wikipedia) called the muadta or beaska seen here:
Where as Anna's dress is clearly influenced by the traditional Norwegian costume called the "bunad":
If you feel inclined to dress like our friend Anna here, and sadly don't have a bunad handy, I have created an alternative option:
Elsa on the other hand is more like some kind of snow fairy and has magic so is therefore exempt from having to follow the trends of the times and lands. Also she apparently doesn't get cold so wool and fur aren't necessary.

If I haven't been able to convince you to see the movie yet, hopefully this video will, and hopefully the song gets stuck in your head forever and ever and ever, like it is in mine.
