***PLEASE NOTE: My work is not 'cosplay', it is costuming. Costuming is the art of creating costumes and designing a character look. 'Cosplay' is the activity of role playing while in costume, which not an activity I participate in, and is often confused for costuming.. Please only refer to my work as Costuming. Thank you for your understanding.***

My "historically accurate" Merida costume which I wore at Dragon*Con 2016!
This dress is made from wool which I hand-dyed and linen, as were proper fabrics worn in Scotland at the time. I tried to make this with as much historical accuracy as I could, keeping in mind this was animated and the designers took certain liberties with time periods... and closures. More about making this costume here:
