‘Elsa’ in drag helps out Boston’s finest; frees the police from snowbank

By Natalie Dreier, Cox Media Group National Content Desk


The big-screen version of Elsa has nothing on Boston’s version.

A man dressed in drag as Elsa took to the streets of Beantown and actually helped police when they got their police wagon stuck in a South End snowbank this week, People magazine reported

In blue dress and silver wig, the Elsa in disguise was actually identified as Jason Triplett, a Boston attorney who braved the cold -- because you know, the cold doesn’t bother Elsa anyway -- because of cabin fever brought on by the city’s latest winter wallop, People reported.

The video has since gone viral with millions of view on Facebook.

Triplett told People magazine of his newfound fame that he figured it would be over soon, saying, “But if this is my 15 minutes, I would like to leverage it to meet [Olympic figure skater and bronze medal winner] Adam Rippon.”

He told WTIC that he bought the costume last year because he thought it would be funny to walk around the city dressed as Elsa. 

“I saw the police [transport vehicle] started to get stuck and so I just ran outside to help push it out of the snow,” Triplett told WTIC. “I really didn’t think it would be a thing.”


Disney’s ‘Elsa’ helps to make birthday magical when girls’ guests are no-shows

Leyana had planned her birthday to a T. She even picked the right outfit. Then, the waiting began. Despite handing out invitations to everyone in Leyana’s class, no one showed up for the first-grader’s party, except for the actress who was hired to portray Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen.”

Now, Lindsay Robert, who has been dressing up as Elsa and appearing at birthday parties, has reached out on Facebook to tell Leyana’s story.

"It was soul crushing. When I open the door, I’m used to all the kids running up to me. But she was just all by herself. Just looking down. Just so sad and she just launched herself into my arms,” Robert told KDVR.

During the time  she was scheduled to arrive, there was supposed to be a house-full of kids. But it was only Leyana so she and Robert danced, sang and formed a friendship, KDVR reported.

“I wasn’t kidding when I told you that every princess is smart and brave and kind, and you are all those things,” Robert told Leyana while KDVR videotaped the pair’s reunion.

Robert took to Facebook to tell Leyana’s heartbreaking story. Not only is she sending a fairy garden to the little girl, “Because Elsa will never let you down,” she also visited Leyana with her “sister,” an actress playing Anna, and is planning another surprise for the 7-year-old.
