“There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.”  ~ Brave, 2012

I’m reminiscing from when i was most recently my favourite Disney princess at St Ives Medieval fair this past September. 
I’m actually going to be re-making Merida however in her Disneyland design for Sydnova next June!

@jackrammyz as Fa Ping from Disney’s Mulan
@jess-kitten as Merida from Disney’s Brave

This was seriously a dream of mine. I had no idea how to tackle this cosplay and be satisfied with it. I knew I wanted armor and a realistic look to it. The final project came out better then expected.
I individually sewed every rectangle to the padding. @ranged-death helped worbla the arm and leg guards, @chrisartplay painted it all as well as the sword, and @jess-kitten did the wig. Without my friends there was no way this was getting done.
Jess made her Merida dress with the same passion for detail.
