Frozen lookalike Helena is making cold hard cash
AN actress who makes thousands of pounds a year transforming herself into Disney’s Princess Elsa has revealed how she’s being inundated with bookings.
Helena Smith, 21, from Bredbury, has been swamped with work offers since launching her lookalike business last year.
She leaves children spellbound with appearances at parties and public events as the Frozen princess and even parents want pictures with her.
Helena said: “A few people come up to us afterwards and ask for a selfie, which we nickname an ‘elfie’.
“Couples come up to me and ask for a picture for their daughter or son because they think it will make them cool.”
It takes Helena 90 minutes to complete her transformation.
Since launching her company, Be Our Guest, she estimates that she makes up to £6,000 a year and she also works as a nursery nurse.
As well as children’s parties, Helen has been hired for weddings and grown-up birthday parties, and has sung the film’s signature song Let It Go hundreds of times.
When the need arises Helen teams up with friend Francesca Kirk, 23, who turns into Princess Anna from the hit film.
