This costume holds a special place in my heart because of what Merida and the movie Brave mean to me. To make a long story short, Brave was a whimsical metaphor for my childhood with my mother. I was the headstrong redhead who spurned her authority and advice at every turn, and my mother and I are still working on our relationship. (Needless to say, the movie makes us both sob.)

I first wore this costume for an event at the bookstore I work at. We had a Brave event the day before the movie came out where we did a scavenger hunt, a bow and quiver craft, coloring, and had a character meet and greet. I had a little girl tell me I was her favorite Disney princess, and I will never forget how special that was.
