Elsa the Snow Queen of Arendelle is the deuteragonist of Disney's Academy Award-winning 2013 animated feature film Frozen. She is the older sister of Princess Anna and was next in line for Arendelle's throne, until her powers over ice and snow led her to become the famous Snow Queen, ruler of winter. She is voiced by Idina Menzel. Along with Anna, Elsa is set to become the 13th official member of the Disney Princess line-up. Elsa is loosely based on the title character of "The Snow Queen", a short story by Hans Christian Andersen, and to a much lesser extent, Kai from the same story. While the character from the original fairy tale was an antagonist, Elsa was rewritten as a protagonist.

Build order: Start with the tip of the braid, then continue in this order. hair, face, neck, arms, snowflake(optional), torso, skirt, mountain top, castle. Finish the craft by building the four flat parts and gluing the craft on top of it.
Notes: Very thick paper is pretty much mandatory, especially for the base. No cape is available since it would take up probably more than 100 pages double sided. So just go out and get a square meter of blue tulle or some similar material to make a cape. She looks quite good without a cape too.

Seven Wonders of the Ancient World Pt.7 - Pharos of Alexandria


The Lighthouse of Alexandria, sometimes called the Pharos of Alexandria, was a lofty tower built by the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 280 and 247 BC and between 393 and 450 ft (120 and 140 m) tall, it was one of the tallest man-made structures on Earth for many centuries, and was regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Badly damaged by three earthquakes between 956 and 1323, it then became an abandoned ruin. It was the third longest surviving ancient wonder (after the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and the still extant Great Pyramid of Giza) until in 1480 the last of its remnant stones were used to build the Citadel of Qaitbay on the site. In 1994, French archaeologists discovered some remains of the lighthouse on the floor of Alexandria's Eastern Harbour.
