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

Model: Me
Photography: Sleepy at Fanime 2012


Third on the more-photos-poll was Merida, barely beat fourth place! Going to CA in a few weeks and will be doing a photoshoot with Merida's end-scene dress that I recently made so you don't have to see this costume again lol (or at least as much, still have a few shots that I really like for this one!)
Also would like to give a shout-out to *kngdmhrts2 for surprising me with DA membership last week and just in general for always being super supportive, thank you!! <3

that wig (it is a wig right?) must have taken a million years to curl like that!

Shooting for your own hand, huh?
I absolutely love this picture. You did an awesome job with your outfit. I never would have thought to make my own wig. Did you make the quiver and arrows, too? Nicely done.

Amazing outfit! I keep wanting to make it myself, but I'm a stickler for details and I haven't yet found the right fabric near me. BUT my main question (and I see from a comment below that it's not a new bow) Where did you get your bow from? It's lovely!

This is so stunning... what pattern did you use? The dress is perfect and it seems to have no seams at all!! So accurate to the film!

What kind of wood is it? How are the recurves built? Or is it a self bow?

I carve bows in my spare time, that's why I'm interested.

I didn't make it, it's just the bow I've been shooting with before the costume came about.

i have to say... this cosplayer understands not only the idea and execution of cosplay but the humble approach when introduced to a fan. The attention to detail from the hem of the dress, down to the facial expressions that seem to personify the very character she is cosplaying. my girlfriend absolutely loves Merida and Callesto was such a sweet heart to everyone that approached her. She had a genuine smile and actually seemed to care what her fans were saying, something I find talented people sometimes forget..

I believe cosplay is to share the love of the characters we portray as well as to meet new people instead of how some people idealize themselves to be above the rest and treat others in a horrible manner.

Callesto, you have my thanks as a fellow cosplayer for making one particular gal a very happy one by your kindness and grace :) Your cosplays are always beautiful and I can't wait to see what is in store next! You have earned yourself a deviant watch missie, and thanks again!
