Merida from Brave [Pixar movie coming out June 2012]
Costume 100% made by me
Wig is custom made & styled by me

Model: Me
Photography: Nataly Guzman, May 2012

Went up to CA this last weekend to see my favorite person in the world live in concert and to spend time with Nataly on her birthday, and we had some extra time to do a couple photoshoots (thanks to Robert for organizing & choosing locations too!) as well so I finished up Merida and brought the costume with me on my trip!

New wig is custom made and styled by me. Also fixed up the ruffles on my under-dress, hand embroidered the eyelets on the front of her green dress, made a couple new arrows, an armguard, and a hand grip for my bow! I also made the medallion she has on her bow but it broke in a billion pieces when I went to shoot an arrow on the beach lol (at least I'll have a few shots with it on the beach!). So I have to remake that for Fanime.. and add some detail to my quiver but probably not because lazy..



& Merida's princess dress:

This is a linen blend, wool will also work nicely for Merida too (:

Positively stunning! You are a very beautiful lady (: Merida is my favorite princess. I was so excited when I went to go see it in theatres that after it was over I threw up.

:o Oh WOW! You make a fantastic Merida! Amazing job!

I have to ask, though, if I may - how did you make the armguard? I'm making the dress, too, and I'm keeping it basic for now, but I'm considering adding the armguard, quiver, etc. later on. Just curious. :-)

Again, love it! :heart:

From the stills and promotional shots I've seen of the movie, you really did a fine job on her hair. Wild and imperfection are hard to create naturally.

Plus it's an amazing photograph. having the depth of field being so narrow, it really allows the viewer to avoid being distracted by anything other than you while still maintaining the knowledge of being in the woods/forrest.
