Moonfall- You could wear a tight, long-sleeved, white undershirt underneath the bodice since you don't see the skirt part. I'd recommend some sort of athletic shirt so that it will also be breathable.

Ani- Try ebay for bows. Wood ones are harder to find, but they're there.

Just finish the edges and add new sections or the turtle neck idea.

I'm debating on just adding sections or making a under shirt (under dress is what it is) myself on her hunting dress.


They ones seller I've got on my watch list that has hickory bows. I'd love to find one locally first if I can as the shipping is high to Canada.

I'm also realized I might have to fake the carving as it might cause the bow to break at the thinner point... I was looking forward to carving the design in but most of the bows are not as thick in body as hers.

Ani-Bee... just came home from Fabricland... THEY HAD TEAL VELEVETEEN! It was plain and the perfect colour! It was $18/m it was a medium weight on the lighter side...i think it was literally the perfect stuff you're looking for. I tried to take a couple pics of it but they didn't really capture the colour...it was somewhere between these two shades...( basically exactly what hers is for colour ).





You can kind of see the draping in it too showing it's a big of a lighter medium weight...it was very soft, i thought it felt more like velvet than velveteen in terms of flexibility.

If you want it and don't want to drive down to Niagara, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Maybe we can meet up at AN and I can give you a sample...it would be heavy to ship though, and the next nearest con is FanExpo...HMMM

I think that the same fabric is got at Fabricland as it was Dark Teal 100% cotton velveteen originally $18 a yard but I got it at 50% off. It's really short pile velveteen so it has a low luster/ colour shift.

I'm making her as my main costume for Saturday at FanExpo. ^_^

To start out with, I'm super excited to see this movie and to see all the amazing cosplays that will come from it!
Also, I'm very excited to say that my friend, who's working on her Merida cosplay, wants me to cosplay Queen Elinor with her!
I actually like the look and style of Elinor and I'm very eager to begin working on her!

I'm so excited, my Merida cosplay is almost finished. I really just need to finish the sleeves and wig. And speaking of wigs, has anyone seen that sometime in June Arda wigs is going to have a wig that will be perfect for Merida? They actually mentioned that in their description (its the new long version of the Glinda). So, anyone looking for a wig yet, there's an option.

I have to send my sewing machine to be realigned. (killed it the Friday of Anime North. :S)
But the only thing I was going to make before the watching the movie was the cape anyways.



Here is the production art that is slowly getting released.

This is the one we saw earlier being done.

And on the Disney World costume.

I love that wig. lol



I'm also making a Wisp for my costume as well.




This is the Arda wig.
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

It's not as full as the Mona Lisa Lioness wig you can get it in Light Auburn (not show in listing but they have a colour chart page you can request from). http://www.ebay.ca/itm/130621458652?... 4.m1438.l2649
Here's the colour chart.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/130621458652?... 4.m1438.l2649

I'm thinking of getting the Glinda and blending it into the new Arda wig as I really like the Pumpkin shade for Merida but want more poof at the roots and hairline.


Ah if I was 10 I fit the size of the official bows.

Hey everyone! I'm another one doing a Merida costume this year (hopefully finishing in time for SDCC). I was pretty sad that I bought my Arda wigs before the new long Glinda came out. I bought the Glinda and a Claudia and am splicing them together slowly but surely. I didn't like the pumpkin color, personally. It was a little too... well, pumpkin. I think I ended up with the dark copper red, which is actually looking pretty good.

Here's a progress pic! SO MUCH HAIR and I'm only about 2/3 done. It's really frizzy right now, after I finish sewing the wefts in I'm going to defrizz it and recurl.

Are you splicing them row by row (weft by weft)? You sould be able to re hand curl this wig first to see if you like the new crazy texture your creating.

I have the light copper red and am looking forward to getting the Pumpkin shade because I want that Orange hue (otherwise I'd use my own crazy copper hair lol).

Dark Copper Red is an option int he new wig as well.

It also seem Merida gets her cloak pendent from the witch.
http://pixar.wikia.com/Witch

Edit: Though I would share this little bit of information. In an article for Galaxy theater's in Canada they mentioned that Merida has 22 costumes. Not I would hazard to guess that also include variations on the distressed version of her outfits and as a child as well as I don't foresee the movie being that long to warrant it.

I sorry to double post but I'm in a bit of a delema.

I want to buy a bow and carve in the design (heat tool actually) but Merida has a recurve bow and the only ones I found online are thin in the arch were the designs are and I'm afraid of shatter the grain and causing the bow to split as there is a lot of tension one these types of bows.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/White-Archery...em4ab552 ae8c

I did find this US manufacture but it not accurate to the shape of hers but is much thicker like her's is and can take the scoring.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/250436941008?... 4.m1438.l2649



I've also design/ordered some royal tartan from Spoonflower. I order three fabric swatches the two cottons and the cotton linen base fabric.
http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1236154

I tired to go as accurate as possible but the dimension of the line are larger and the colours as close as possible. I did this intentionally as Disney is a afraid of copyright infringement and the shade of the tartan vary a bit from the products images to linen seen on the king.

Why make it because I've got a sneaking suspicion that the Parks dress is the one we will see at the end of the movie. Plus I kind of want to make that belt.



Assiduity you will make a great queen Queen Elinor. (If I didn't love Merida design so much I would have probably done her.)

I love your tartan fabric!!! I have been looking high and low because eventually I aspire to make a parks version of the dress for my daughter...because like you I suspect that will be what she's wearing in the end.
Finding fabric for it is a NIGHTMARE though. Ugh.

Tartan fabric patterns are generally specialized. There is even a database online for which pattern belongs to which clan. O_o

Sorry to double post but I found a bow that works if your willing to do a paint job on it.

PSE Chief 51"
http://stores.ebay.com/thecrossbowst...id=94 2109974
First thing ink doing a remove the plastic/rubber hand guard. lol

I was looking up different way to make a bow including heat shaping PVC pipe (search PVC archery bow) but i feel more conferrable dress up a pre-esisting fiberglass bow as I don't have the ventilation or the room to carve or heat up plastics.

My arrow are going to be foam tipped anyways for my piece of mind. Higher grade artist acrylic are the best way to paint something that flexes and I've done a lot of wood grain painting in the past.


BTW the PVC bow are amassing way to go. *_*

Also this one is amazing shape but I' won't be able to complete the auction as I will be out of town (if only if I had a smart phone. lol)

Also the new Arda wigs Merry wig in action!
