Merida from Brave [Pixar]
Costume 100% made by me
Wig is custom made & styled by me

Model: Me
Photography: *BertLePhoto, October 2012

Hide your tapestry Elinor! XD

I made this costume, Merida's princess dress, as a secret for SDCC this year and finally got a photoshoot with it last week!
My dress has ~13 hours worth of screen printing on it and countless hours of hand-gluing 3700 gems to the bottom. Even though I donít wear a corset with it as she does in the movie, I still canít move or breathe in the thing lol. Wig is also custom made by me (and is a continual piece of work) along with the work on my bow and painting on the sword! Probably one of my favorite costumes to date, if I wear it to ALA Iíll be making her circlet and white head piece (:

Major thanks to Robert & Jeff for the gorgeous photos!

I love Merida's princess dress *-* Your reproduction is gorgeous!
I wouldn't want to be a bother but... could you possibily tell me what kind of fabric you used for it? It seems to me it could be something like, mmm... velvet? o.O Feel free not to reply to my question if you prefer to keep it for yourself. I'd totally understand :)
