A frost has fallen over the Once Upon a Time set: Elsa has arrived.
Georgina Haig, who portrays the Disney icon on the hit series, has been spotted for the first time in costume on set. On Wednesday, the Australian actress was snapped face-forward in full Queen of Arendelle regalia. But how did her version of Elsa's glittery gown compare to its animated inspiration?

Leave it to Once Upon a Time's three-time Emmy-nominated costume department to put a fresh spin on the stylish look.
Georgina's ensemble mimicked many of the original dress's key features, including a wide neck with sheer sleeves, a diaphanous attached cape, lots of sparkles, and, of course, a stunning, ice blue hue. The 29-year-old thesp, who's best known for her role on Fringe also wore her hair in a sweeping side braid studded with stones in a nod to her namesake.
Still, this wasn't an exact copy. Perhaps the biggest difference lies in the fact that overall, Georgina's interpretation is somehow more princess-like and less slinky. She also completed her look with silvery ankle-strapped flats, rather than the dramatic stilettos of the animated Idina Menzel-voiced version. She's still undeniably beautiful, but she's less overtly sexy.
