A Carnforth woman is letting go of her confidence issues by transforming into a fairytale Disney Princess.

Laura Clark has been dressing up as Frozen’s Elsa for the past six months for the family party business Bays Best Bouncers.

The 22-year-old was terrified at first to dress up as the Disney Queen who has been taking the film and music charts by storm.

Laura said: “I had never done anything like this before so I was terrified the first few times.

“Now when we go out to parties I seem to get into character and enjoy seeing the little ones’ faces light up when I enter the room, it is priceless.”

Mum Lisa Aston has been running the party business for 18 months and is over the moon at the reaction Laura has had so far.

Lisa said: “It has just been overwhelming. We would 
never expect to be so successful, we work really hard.

“I just think it is the fantasy of it all and the magic, it is a fairy tale which kids love and they have gone crazy for it.”

Nearly every weekend Laura transforms herself into Elsa and is amazed by how much her confidence has grown because of it.

Laura said: “Before this I wouldn’t talk to anyone but now it makes me feel like a completely different person.

“When I put the costume on I’m Elsa not Laura and I just hope we can continue to make lots of people very happy.”

The Frozen-themed parties attract boys and girls who enjoy dancing to ‘Let It Go’ and having their picture taken with their real version of Elsa.

Because of the popularity the family is planning to introduce more Frozen characters, such as Anna.

Lisa said: “I am having to start doing the parties through the week now as well because it has got out of hand.

“We just want to bring as much happiness as we can to as many children.”
