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

Model: Me
Photography: Jeff Wong, October 2012

I made this costume, Merida's princess dress, as a secret for SDCC this year and finally got a photoshoot with it this month!
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 and is completely hand curled (and is a continual piece of work).
Probably one of my favorite costumes to date, if I wear it to ALA I’ll be making her circlet and white head piece (:
