Merida I by AngelaClaytonCosplay Merida I by AngelaClaytonCosplay
I made this dress in a few weeks on a whim. I wanted to make something simple but with a lot of contrast, and Merida came to mind! Though I'm not the biggest fan of the movie, I adore Merida as a character and her design is just a delight! I had a lot of fun making this, it was a very easy, satisfying project (and is super comfy!)

The dress is dark green wool, the ruffles and such are cream chiffon. The wig is four cheap, ebay wigs sewn together.

Costume made & worn by me. Photos staged and edited by me, taken by my father!

I have more pictures here [link]

I love the hair!

Might I ask, do you remember which ebay seller you went with? Most of the ebay sellers are using the same pictures so I'm not sure which ones I can trust

Great choice, using wool--it looks very authentic.  The effect of the sewn-together wigs is magnificent!  You make a great Merida.  Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

I've seen your step-by-step tutorial of this cosplay on wordpress... and I absolutely love it! I've been wanting to cosplay Merida for quite some time now. :)

I don't remember if you said anything about this in the tutorial, but what type of fabric did you use for the dress (including the white "ruffles" in the sleeves)?

It's mentioned on my blog, and in the description of this photo. The dress is wool and the ruffles are chiffon. :)

This is wonderful. You are a very talented artist. Also, one of my favorite Disney characters. (But I don't think you will have a llama costplay anytime soon)
