I want to cosplay Elsa, but am I too short?

I have been wanting to cosplay Elsa from Frozen when I saw her first promotional artwork. I was like all "Ohmyglob shes so gorgeous" and "Ohmygod! I have to make a cosplay of this!". Long story short I was bitten by the Frozen bug hard and I wanted to cosplay Elsa because of her snowy theme and color choices. But the question I never had to think about then struck me like a ton of bricks: "Am I too short?". Lets face it, I am exactly 5' tall and people often mistake me for a 12-14 year old girl. I don't have this issue with Elesa from Pokemon (height can vary between Pokemon character interpretations), Panem Capitol Citizen (again people differ in this), or Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman is 5'3", only 3 in taller than me). It's somewhat embarrassing , but I thought I would mention this before I started work on this cosplay. I need people's suggestions, though nothing too negative please!

No, people don't pay attention to height too much.

If you can handle walking in them, you could wear heels to add an inch or so. Heels aren't as bad as they seem as long as the heel itself is supportive enough, not just a stick like this:

I'm 5'5" and no one seemed to care that Elsa is (apparently) taller than that. Go for it I say! Just make sure your costume is in proportion to YOUR height and you'll be fine...
