I’m in love with the movie Brave and Disney’s Princess Merida, so I thought it was the perfect costume to tackle next in my Disney character dress up series. Remember my Modern-day Cinderella Costumes?
This time, I really wanted to do something fun and different, and Princess Merida was the perfect choice. I must have watched the movie Brave five times over the weekend just to get the look and costume down, and I fell deeper in love with it each time I viewed it. It’s a different story than most of the Disney Princess Movies, and it’s really fantastic. You should definitely give it a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.
Dressing up is too much FUN and with Halloween just around the corner, hopefully I can inspire some exciting new ideas! Flip through the photos below for my step by step DIY Merida Costume from the movie Brave, which can be worn short & saucy or with a long, full skirt for a more authentic look.
