Deluxe Adult Brave Princess Merida Costumes
Featuring a variety of adult Merida theater quality costumes inspired by the animated Disney film Brave. We are including Merida dresses, weapons, wigs, and shoes to make a complete outfit to wear to any of your favorite costume events.
Princess Merida of DunBroch, Scotland is the teenage daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor, the rulers of their Scottish kingdom. Princess Merida is no ordinary princess. She’s not the kind of princess who sits in an ivory tower dreaming of the prince she will someday marry. She’s an energetic, free-spirited, fiery lass who’s strong and brave, a bit of a tomboy, and a highly skilled archeress.
Merida’s mother wants to marry her off, making her a proper Royal lady, but Merida’s not having it. She is torn between obeying her parents and using her own free will to create her own destiny. Merida is determined to take control of her own life and live it the way she pleases rather than doing whatever is expected of her.
Women’s Merida Costumes
The Merida dresses we are featuring below are inspired and replicated from the Disney Pixar animated film, Brave. The dresses are Princess Merida’s forest dress made of blue-teal stretch velvet.
Women’s Merida Disney Brave Replica Cosplay Costume
Included with this cosplay Merida dress costume is a one-piece dress with cream ruffles at the neckline and sleeve cuffs. Peeking out through the sleeve cut-outs is gathered cream fabric giving the illusion of a separate blouse being worn underneath. A faux suede quiver and belt are also included. The wig, bow, arrows, and shoes are not included but may be purchased separately below.

Custom Made Cosplay Costume
I really like that the dress of this custom made costume is actually 2 pieces instead of just one. Included is the velvet dress with the cut-out sleeves and a separate cream chemise style blouse with a ruffled neckline and ruffled sleeves to be worn underneath. When ordering I would specify making the dress from a blue-teal velvet like the one in the Brave film and not a hunter green or green-teal velvet.
Women’s Deluxe Princess Merida Cosplay Costume Dress
Choose your size from the size chart or have the dress custom made to your measurements. The fabric is a cotton velvet with a silky underskirt in a blue-teal, but you can request any color you want if having the dress custom made. This Medieval style dress costume can be worn for more than a Brave costume. It can also be used as a Renaissance Faire costume, a Pirate Fest costume, a comic-con or cosplay costume, or a Halloween costume.
Included with the dress is a faux leather quiver and belt. The quiver is actually vinyl and cheap looking. I recommend replacing it with a better quality quiver.

Bow and Arrow Weapon Prop Sets
Are you really planning on getting into archery as a sport? If you are, then don’t get any of these archery sets we are featuring below. They are only for costume props. And great props they are for cosplay, LARP, RPG, theater, or Halloween events. You can be sure these props will enhance the look of your Merida costume or any archer’s costume. They can be used again for another archeress, woodland sprite, or Maid mariam costume.
Archeress Princess Merida Replicated Brave Bow & Arrow Cosplay Weapon Prop Set
This is an exact replica of Princes Merida’s (from Disney’s Brave animated movie) bow and arrow archery weapon set. It is handmade from molded PVC plastic with plastic arrow. It is a cosplay costume prop and not a real weapon nor is it a toy. Included in the set is the bow, 6 arrows, and the quiver.
Traditional Longbow Archer Sets
Longbows are the types of bows traditionally used during Merida’s Medieval era in Scotland, England and all over Europe. Both of these two bow sets featured above are really affordable sets that will look really great with Merida’s forest costume dress! They are so much better than the plastic, rubber tipped sets you see all over the online costume sites.

Youth Rubber Tipped Starter Sets
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a costume prop or a real archery set. These inexpensive wood beginners archer sets with rubber tip arrows will work just fine as props and save you a bunch of money.
Adult Handcrafted Merida Bow with 3-Arrows Set
I SO WANT THIS BOW!
Imagine being in the highlands of Scotland using this bow. Handcrafted in the USA, this is a gorgeous high-quality Merida Bow, inspired by the movie Brave. I fell in love with it the minute I set my eyes on it. The next time I dress as Merida I’m getting this bow for my costume. I may get it sooner and stash in in my costume wardrobe closet. On top of that I may even use it! I haven’t used a bow in quite a few years and think it would be fun to start again with this bow.
This is a real, fully functional bow. IT IS NOT A TOY! It should be treated with care and of course safety. If you have never had any archery training, please be careful not to shoot these real arrows at anyone or around anyone (accidents can happen with novice archers). They WILL take out an eye or worse, if you can imagine. OK. Enough of my little lecture rant. I just want you to be careful and safe.
Red Curly Merida Wigs
Unless you have a full head of long auburn red naturally curly hair, you will need a wig to pull off the completed look of the Scottish lass, Marida. Without the wig, people will think you are a Medieval lady but they won’t think of you as Merida. We are showing several really nice costume wigs, in different shades of red, for you to consider.

Merida Medieval Costume Shoes
In keeping with the Medieval fashions worn by Princess Merida, wearing a pair of Medieval style shoes is a neccessity for a costume accurate to the ancient Scottish timeline. It just would not do to wear a pair of tennirunners with Merida’s velvet forest dress. In fact, it would ruin the overall look of the costume and sneakers won’t win you any points or prizes at a Halloween costume contest.
We are featuring several different styles of shoes that are accurate, or at least very close in accuracy, to the shoes women wore during 12th-century Scottland. Decide which pair will be the most comforatable for you to wear as Merida.
Women’s Medieval Natural Leather Flat Shoes
Handmade of real genuine leather, these flat Medieval shoes are exact replicas of one type of shoe worn by women in early 12th-century Scotland. The flats are soft and will not give any support, but this is the way they were made way back when. They are available in black (shown), natural white (shown), and brown.
During those times, when the soles of the shoes wore out a new pair of soles were sewn onto the top of the shoe. Support was much discussed then. It was a matter of keeping feet dry and protecting the bottoms of one’s feet from stones in the road when walking. Walking was the only mode of transportation at the time. Carriages had not yet been invented and only wealthy nobles and royals, such as Merida, could afford to ride horses.
Birkenstock Habana Oiled Leather Buckle Clog
Unless you were the wife of a blacksmith, as a peasant woman you could not afford a pair of shoes made with metal buckles. Of course, the shoes did not have rubber soles, but the buckled Mary Jane style clog, or brogan as they were called, was a style worn by wealhier aristocrat women.
Everyone is familiar with the high-quality leather used in Germany to craft the Birkenstock clog. They are a high-quality product well-known around the world for their durability and comfort. These clogs are available in brown (shown) and black.
Women’s Soft Leather Ghillie Black Lace Up Flats
The term ghillie is the Scot-Gaelic word for land and game manager. During the 12-century Scotland ghillies were a wee bit different than this modern day pair. Ghillies at that time were more or less a bag of leather with leather straps fed through loops and gathered around the foot. They were fashioned this way as waterproofing as they allowed water to run through the leather loops and gathers rather than standing still in the bottom of the shoe. Even though they were called ghillies, an estate’s grounds manager never wore them.
This pair of ghillies will make a wonderful addition to a Princess Merida costume. They are handmade in Ireland from soft high-quality genuine leather and are very comfortable to wear as they are used these days for dance.
Women’s Medieval Natural Leather Ankle Boots
Both pairs of Medieval ankle boots are handmade from genuine leather. The tan boots featured above left, are fashioned after Medieval ghillie boots. The handmade genuine leather boots featured above right are available in black (shown), brown, and natural tan.
We hope you have lots and lots of fun at your next costume event dressed as the fiery Scot Princess, Merida of DunBroch, Scotland! Be sure to visit more of our Disney inspired costume pages.
