Callesto as Merida



Princess Dress

Cosplayer: Callesto
My dress has ~13 hours worth of screen printing on it, at the hem and on the belt, of designs that were hand drawn out for my screen to match the ones seen on her dress in the movie. Countless hours were spent hand-gluing 3700 gems to the bottom hem over my print.
Even though I don’t wear a corset with it as she does in the movie, I still can’t move or breathe in the thing lol.
Wig is also custom made by me, it is completely hand curled (and is a continual piece of work).

My arrows & quiver are handmade. Medallion & rocks on my bow are made from sculpey and the details are hand carved into leather which wraps around and just ties on to my bow for conventions so I can take them off when I shoot at the range without damaging my work.
