Princess Merida Brave Costume Ideas
Dress up as the beautiful Princess Merida with this magnificent green renaissance gown.
Brave is the animated fantasy movie that tells the story of Princess Merida and her life in the Scottish Highlands.
At the tender age of five, her father, King Fergus, presents her with a longbow on her birthday. When she turns 16, she is to be set-up in an arranged marriage with a member of a neighboring clan.
A skilled archer, Merida wins an archery contest and defeats both men who were competing for her honor.
After accidentally giving her mother some cake which transforms her into a large black bear, Merida is able to repair the torn tapestry and reconcile her grievances with her mother. Her mother is transformed back into the Queen Elinor and the family is happily reunited.
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.
