**UPDATE! Winner will hopefully be announced later this week. I received over 600 entries (!) so it's taken me much longer to sort through them then I anticipated--and I want every photo to have a fair shot! Once chosen, winner will be announced here on the blog, and a few hours later, on Instagram. Thank you for your patience!!**

Tomorrow, like 99 percent of little girls ages 3 to 10, my daughter is dressing up as Elsa. For those of you who don't have kids (and therefore don't know a Sven from a Hans or have a constant loop of "Let It Go" surging through your brain), Elsa is one of the sisters from the juggernaut of a movie Frozen. She's the blonde, the Snow Queen, the Idina Menzel. She also tends to be the sister most girls gravitate to, so she's poised to be one of the most popular costumes this year. (For the record, my daughter actually prefers the other sister, Anna, but she was already Anna for her Frozen birthday party, so it's Elsa's turn.)

I thought it might be fun to see if I could get an Elsa-costume hashtag going on Instagram. So, if you have a little Elsa, have a friend with a little Elsa, or are dressing up as Elsa yourself (I won't judge), please post it to Instagram with the hashtag #ShowMeYourElsa and follow me on Instagram (@alyssahertzig). 

I'll pick my favorite Elsa from all of the tagged photos on Sunday night. The winning Elsa's grownup will get a hand-picked selection of awesome beauty products (I have access to the best stuff as a beauty editor, remember!), plus a fun Frozen beauty gift for your little Elsa.

So what are you dressing up as for Halloween? What about your kids? Tell me below!

And, if anyone in your family is wearing baby blue and a blond wig, don't forget to #ShowMeYourElsa...
