Brave - Merida Cosplay : Legends are Lessons by Thecrystalshoe Brave - Merida Cosplay : Legends are Lessons by Thecrystalshoe
Backstage Video: [link]


Second photo from today's photoshoot with my last costume: Merida from Brave.
It's summer here in Argentina and I practically melted with this costume, but it was worth it. We could make another awesome phtoshoot/backstage video with Sevi and Cynthia. The video will be up this week or the other, if lucky !
The biggest challenge was finding an appropriate wig, then I dyed some parts to give it different shades of orange. I just couldn't feel myself with that wig! it's so hughe, lol.

Nope, i don't mind sharing I always help people and answer every question :D i searched on ebay " MERIDA WIG" but like a year ago " and bought one that seemed quite good, i added more curles and dyied some darker parts to give it differente shades of orange :) The wig I bought is no longer for sale but there are some simmilar ones you can buy, but you have to style them a little ! or buy an expensive one x_X

Ohhh! I just bought one for like $16, I might buy another and take the hair from one and add to the other. My friend does hair so maybe he can play with it a little! Thank you!
