Merida - Disney/Pixar's Brave



*This costume is now retired*

"Our fate lives within us. You only have to be brave enough to see it."

What can I say? I love being a princess. My Scottish accent is terrible however.

"Merida is a princess by birth and an adventurer by a spirit. She spends her days practicing archery, riding her horse Angus, and exploring the world around her. She loves her family, but she wants to control her own destiny. In terms of personality, she greatly parallels and resembles her father, as the two both tend to be unruly, impulsive, and loud. However, she also does resemble her mother in terms of stubbornness and inability to listen to others."

The dress was bought on ebay and I made alterations.

The wig came from AliExpress.

Boots, base bow, arrows, quiver and bear plush were all bought on ebay.


I had planned this costume for AmeCon 2018 but as I ended up needing to make alterations to the dress it wasn't ready to wear in time so I finished it for a private shoot in some local woods instead.

The makeup was a new challenge as it was the first time I changed my eyelash colour as well as my eyebrows but I think it really made the difference.
It was fun to play a princess who's a bit more "wild and free" and I didn't have to worry about my wig going crazy (it was a very windy shoot!).
