There are many reasons for American Horror Story fans to love this latest season. From Evan Peters' interesting hand techniques to the wide assortment of Freak Show 's musical performances, it's already proven to be a wild and crazy ride. And we're not even halfway through the season yet! However, for me, the true star of this spectacular show begins and ends with AHS and Jessica Lange's Elsa Mars. But it's not just because Jessica Lange can do no wrong (though that's totally true). Even the name "Elsa" itself carries with it a certain elevated level of importance, probably due to the fact that it immediately makes you think of a certain Frozen star. (Come on, admit it. It's crossed your mind at least once or twice.) Which, of course, got me thinking… Elsa Mars and Queen Elsa are actually pretty similar in more ways than you'd think.
Sounds crazy, right? I mean, what could a German sideshow performer possibly have in common with an animated queen who possesses magical freezing powers? It may not seem that likely, but at their core they're practically identical. You know, other than the whole side braid thing. (Lange's Elsa needs longer hair for that.) But hey, you don't have to just take my word for it. There's plenty of GIF-tastic proof to go around.
