Princess Merida Costume from Brave

Updated on August 21, 2014

Make a Disney Pixar Princess Merida Costume

Princess Merida will continue to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes. Since her debut in 2012 she has proven to be popular for girls, tweens, teens and grown women. Fortunately there is time before Halloween to start working on making or adapting one of the Princess Merida dresses into a costume for your favorite Brave tween, teen or adult fan.

Perhaps the biggest choice with making a Merida Costume is deciding to make her more traditional day use dress or her special occasion, suitor and archery competition dress.

There are two different version of her Celtic medieval style dresses, one in forest green (or teal) and another in a light shade of blue. Merida's main accessory, other than her curly red hair, is her archery set.

This page has plenty of information to help you in making or adapting your own Princess Merida Costume and finding her costume accessories. I've found the best available patterns to use to make your own Merida dress. The hardest part may be deciding to make the green or the blue dress.

If you run out of time or get too frustrated trying to make a costume, there are also links to some premade adult and teen sized dresses that could be adapted into Merida costumes and the official Disney Merida costumes that could be used for girls instead.

Princess Merida's Dresses Easier Ones to Make

Princess Merida is not a typical Disney Princess and neither are her dresses. Merida's dresses are a Medieval style dress or early Renaissance. The dresses are made with very long lines, few details or embellishments and lace up the back to close

Another important part of her green dress is her long hooded cape and the headring and wimple on her blue formal costume.

Merida's dresses have become very popular for those doing Medieval or Renaissance reenactments, Cosplay and Comic Con costumes.

The dresses that have been designed for Merida, even her more formal blue dress are much more simple than the more ornate dresses worn by Belle, Cinderella, Ariel and Aurora. The most complicated parts look to be the lacings in the back and the sleeves and sleeve openings.

Merida Costume Patterns

Make Your Own Merida Dress

Princess Merida gives us not only one dress, but two dresses to choose from when deciding to make a Merida dress. The Medieval styling tend to be flattering for many figure sizes, so may prove to be a popular costume for adults to wear both at Halloween and reenactments.

Merida's dresses appear to be seamless, an indication that the animators are perhaps not clothing designers. In order to get the figure hugging dresses worn by Merida, one would need to use princess seams, which are seams that run from the shoulder to the hem. The princess seams allow for a custom fit at the bust line, the waist and the hips, which creates a figure-flattering line for women of all sizes.

Several of the available patterns indicate they have a kyrtle or a kirtle, which according to a Presentation by B S Sharples, Bosbury, Herefordshire November 2011 is defined as a woman's long dress, closely fitted to the bust, waist and hips with a rectangular neckline and tight long sleeves. The kirtle was often worn with a hip belt. Some of the kyrtles were worn over a chemise or a blouse. Merida's blue dress features a hip belt detail which is sewn into the dress. Her main hip belt is the belt for her arrow holster.

The are several different patterns to choose from for making a Merida dress depending on which style and how exact you want to be in recreating the costume. The Easy Renaissance Princess (Kirtle) Gown Pattern shown in the image above is a bit more curvaceous than the original Merida dress, but this pattern has adjustments for the neckline as well as three different back closure options a zipper (not authentic), button or laced (most authentic).

I've pulled together the specific details including which patterns will work the best for the Green Dress and the Blue Dress in the sections that follow.

Easy Renaissance Princess Pattern on Amazon below.

How to Make a Merida Costume

  1. Pick the Dress - Green or Blue
  2. Study details of the costume - Watch the movie, look at video clips and picture still from Brave
  3. Pick a pattern or patterns for the dress
  4. Decide whether to include the cape
  5. Buy the fabric, notions and embellishments
  6. Start sewing
  7. Remember the accessories - cape, wig and archery set, headring and wimple.

Celtic Costume Patterns

Early Celtic, Medieval and some Renaissance style patterns work well for recreating Merida's dress. You may have to combine elements of different patterns to come up with a final Merida Dress.

Making a Green Dress for Princess Merida

Merida's Green dress is her more active dress. It is made from beautiful forest green fabric. She also has her archery set, bow, arrows, quiver or arrow holster and belt. We also see her wearing a dark woolen hooded cape which could be made from a Renaissance Cape pattern or from Butterick Patterns B4377 and closed with a celtic brooch or a large celtic button.

Looking at the images it is difficult to tell for sure if the dress is constructed with or without an underlying blouse (chemise), or if the contrasting sections are a part of the dress.

The front of the green dress has a keyhole opening with lace or beige fabric ruffle around the edges. The sleeves are contrasting upper and lower sleeves with the chemise underneath or stitched into the dress.

Merida's green dress could be constructed as a complete dress or as a green dress with beige or nude colored blouse underneath depending on one's preferences.

Good pattern options include the Easy Renaissance Princess Kirtle, Simplicity 9891, or Butterick B4827. These patterns all of the basic princess seamed dress patterns. The neckline can be found in the McCalls M5499 pattern (their green version) which also laces up the back. The sleeves need to be added separately and are discussed in the next section.

Since the blue dress laces up the back, it is likely that the green one laces up the back as well. The best pattern with different back closure options is the Medieval Kirtle Pattern which comes with zipper, button or lace closures.

Long Sleeves with Contrasting Sections

Most of the detailing of Merida's Green Dress goes into the contrasting sections in her sleeves.

If you look at the detailing picture above, Merida's sleeves appear to be cut into several sections with a large underarm opening showing either a chemise top or a contrasting fabric in a very large gusset. The green sleeve only looks to be attached at the very top of the shoulder.

There are two patterns that I found which do the split sleeves one. McCalls 5444 is still available. It has the long sleeves with contrasting upper and lower sections and sleeve stays.

McCalls 4041 is a discontinued pattern, but can be picked up on eBay and on Amazon. This pattern also has contrasting upper and lower sleeves with larger cuffs.

The only thing that needs to be added in are the pieces to connect the different sections of the green sleeves.

McCall's Pattern 4011 available on Amazon and eBay.

Making Princess Merida a Blue Dress

Merida's Blue dress is her more formal dress. The form-fitting dress is made from a beautiful light blue, slightly turquoise satin sheeny fabric. The (likely) princess seamed dress features a square neckline and is embellished with gold fabric and a golden hip belt detail which is sewn into the dress. Gold fabric also embellishes the hem and the pointed cuffs.

Merida's wimple (headdress), which could be fashioned from white jersey knit fabric, appears to be detachable from her undershirt, which is viewed peeking out of her neckline and her cuffs. The sleeves are constructed with an open gusset revealing her undershirt or a knit jersey fabric insert.

The blue dress is laced up the back and she splits the seams in order to participate in the archery contest, revealing her undershirt beneath.

Good pattern options for Merida's Blue Dress include the Medieval Kirtle Pattern or the Easy Renaissance Princess (Kirtle) Gown Pattern. The pointed sleeve cuff detailing can be found in Butterick B4377.

Princess Merida Wig

Merida has flaming Red Hair

One of the most striking things about Merida is her vibrant, curly and fiery red hair that seems to almost have a life of its own.

Those who are blessed with naturally curly long red hair will have no problem looking like Merida.

The rest of us probably need to put on a Merida Red Wig or add some curls to any old Ariel wig you might have.

Since the official Merida wig appears to be sized to go with the official Merida costume dresses, until they come out with one for adults, adults and tweens should look at other curly red wigs that I've pulled into the module below.

Princess Merida Red Wig Options

One of the most noticeable thing about Merida is her fiery red hair. Those who were not blessed with red hair can put on a red wig to look more like Merida.

Princess Merida's Archery Set

Brave Archery Set

Merida's most prize possession, one that she is rarely without, is her archery set bow and arrows. She is seen with the archery set in her green dress, but does the shooting at the contest in her blue dress.

Putting together a Merida costume would require including an archery set.

Disney Merida's Archery Set comes with a 26 inch bow and four 15 inch arrows which can be stored in a 11 1/2 inch quiver worn around the waist like Merida.

The arrows have suction cups instead of arrowheads.

Any Merida carrying a bow and arrows needs to make sure that she doesn't point the arrows at anyone, or is only using safe arrows.

Disney Brave Archery set available on Amazon (see the right side bar) and on eBay.

Princess Merida Wimple and Tiara

Princess Merida's Headring and Wimple

When Merida wears her blue dress, she also gets outfitted with a wimple (a cloth headdress worn in medieval times by single young women that covers the head, the neck, and the sides of the face) and a headring as seen in the illustration to the right.

Merida's headring looks to be in gold with pearls and an aquamarine stone embellishments which could be fashioned using a gold and pearl headband as a base.

To simulate Merida's headring you need to find a gold headband with embedded pearls and then attach a smaller piece of jewelry to it.

The official Disney version of Meridas headdress looks like an enlarged version of Princess Merida's head ring with a dangling jewel and gold glitter accents. Instead of going around the head, this tiara has combs which can be secured to the hair. It is sized for children, but since it comes with attached combs, it could fit into an adult head.

Princess Merida Dolls

Princess Merida as a Toddler

When Disney Pixar Brave was released in 2012, Princess Merida was added to the official collection of Disney Collection of Toddler Dolls, a collection of dolls created with input from the Disney Animators who drew the characters.

This toddler version of Merida has her fiery red hair. She wears a modified version of Princess Merida's formal blue gown, minus her headdress. The quirky expression demonstrates her rebellious attitude or is perhaps an expression stolen from her three toddler brothers.

You can find out more about the Disney Animators' Collection of Toddler Princesses in the lens that I created below.

The Toddler Merida Doll measures 16 inches and is available on Amazon.

      @Rangoon House: Out of all of the Princess dresses, Merida's is the only one that I might want to wear myself.

      I would need to do a lot of thinking about making a Merida costume, but you have certainly made it easier.

      @marigoldina: We've enjoyed it twice already. My daughters really like Merida. They now want to do archery.

      @anonymous: Shannon. Thanks for weighing in on the dress. I went back and looked at different images and some of darker every day dress looks like green some of them look like a dark teal blue which looks like the color they are having for the meet and greet Princess Merida.

      Her dark dress is a teal blue and is not green at all. She wears a deep teal blue or a robins egg blue for her two dresses. No green.

      So cute! My daughter would love it if I made her one. Come to think of it, blue is her color, so maybe I'd have to do green and blue lol.
