Merida from Brave

Merida was completed in October 2017 for part of a small Brave group for Rhode Island Comic Con with my mom and sister. Since I already purchased a crazy orange wig for Maid Marian, cosplaying Merida made sense. This group was a no brainer!

The dress was created from a very straightforward McCall’s Merida pattern. I used a great textured cotton home dec material I purchased at Fabric Place Basement in Natick, MA. I liked the dress and made the contrast ruffle and sleeve puffs from a soft white cotton plain weave. The dress zips up the back. This was a pretty simple costume and I love that kids immediately recognize me!
