I had trouble finding the exact tartan for this, so I just went with this flannel. It is different from the one I found for Fergus. You wouldn’t believe how difficult it was to track down matches for both of them. Ultimately, unless you are obsessed, or looking at a photo, you wouldn’t know, right?
My girl was trying to make a Dingwall face, but she ended up just being silly. A lot.
I followed the same tutorial for making her kilt, as I used for this one. And I made her brooch the same too.
The hair is tricky. We have tried everything to get it to be a different color (without dyeing it), including smashing up white eyeshadow, and making a paste. But nothing worked. So I think she will have to go with her natural brown. I just put a little oil in her hair and used the blow dryer on it for these photos. For the actual day, we have gelatin to put in. That should do the trick.
For fun and a touch of whimsy (and really just to make her giggle) I used banana fabric as the liner of the sporran.
My Falafel wasn’t thrilled with this costume choice, but I think she makes it pretty great. Not too many girls in Brave, if you aren’t Merida. We’ll see if anyone recognizes her!
