She has blue eyes, fair skin, pink lips, rosy cheeks, thin black eyebrows and matching eyelashes, and strawberry-blonde hair.

On Halloween night at a party at her house with Ichabod Crane, her hair is pigtailed with blue ribbons. She dons a dress consisting of dark pink top with matching peplum, pink short sleeves, white brims on her sleeves,  a wide v-neckline and pink skirt, a petticoat in the same color, a black band tied around her neck, a bustle beneath her dress, and shoes of the same color

Appearances

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

In the film, Katrina Van Tassel is a beautiful young woman who is the daughter of old Baltus Van Tassel, the richest farmer in the county. Katrina attracts many of the young men in Sleepy Hollow who offer to do anything for her like setting up her picnic for her or carry her groceries home for her. Soon Ichabod meets Katrina and falls in love with her and offers to carry her groceries home for her, but Ichabod's rival Brom Bones, who has also fallen for Katrina, sees this and pushes Ichabod into the mud. He puts Katrina on his horse and carries her groceries home for her, but soon Ichabod catches up to them and takes Katrina home again. When they arrive at Katrina's house Ichabod kisses Katrina's hand and leaves, but Brom is outside waiting and Ichabod runs back in and gives Katrina some flowers; she places one in Ichabod's shirt pocket. Ichabod leaves again but is grabbed by Brom suddenly, though Katrina manages to distract Brom in order for Ichabod to escape happily home. Soon Katrina's father is having a Halloween Party and she invites Ichabod, who dances with her at the party. During the dance, Brom manages to steal Katrina from Ichabod for a short period of time but Ichabod manages to get Katrina back and together they steal the whole dance together, causing everyone except for Brom Bones to clap for them. Shortly after the dance Brom Bones tells a story about him meeting the Headless Horseman, who rides in Sleepy Hollow every Halloween night looking for a new head. The story frightens Ichabod and Katrina laughs at his scared reactions. After the party as Ichabod rides home he has a mysterious encounter with the Headless Horseman and disappears from Sleepy Hollow. Katrina winds up marrying Brom Bones.

House of Mouse

Katrina makes a cameo appearance as one of the guests in the TV series House of Mouse.

Trivia

  • It is believed by fans that she knew Brom Bones loved her and that he wasn't proposing soon enough so she made Brom jealous by pretending to have some affection for Ichabod. 
  • Katrina has a similar character design to Cinderella.
  • Katrina has a whole song dedicated to her sung by Bing Crosby during the film called Katrina.
  • Katrina is very similar to Charlotte La Blouff from the Princess and the Frog. Both are rich, spoiled women. While Lottie is very hyper and fun, Katrina is more calm and collective. Both are hit on by boys (Ichabod with Katrina and Travis with Lottie). They also are blondes who often wear pink.
