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

Model: Me
Photography: Jeff Wong, October 2012

Also made Merida's end scene dress XD. Made this to wear at a Renaissance Fair and then Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland and was lucky enough to fit in another shoot with Jeff and Robert when I was in town! I based mine off of the movie and pulled from the concept art for a couple details that were hard to see in the movie since it's only in there for a couple minutes (and she's always hiding behind something haha).

I've never made any but I'm sure there are dozens on youtube. Also check out dharmatrading (www.dharmatrading.com/tools/sc… they have lots of helpful books, dvds, and kits and if you scroll to the bottom of that page they've included some helpful youtube videos (:
