With the recently released Disney/Pixar film “Brave” comes a popular new Halloween choice among costume ideas.  The Princess Merida costume is sure to be a must-have for many young girls and women as the October holiday arrives.  Here are more details on this Disney character and the popular outfits available for girls.

Disney Brave Merida Costume - Size 5/6Merida is the main character in the film “Brave,” which is set in 10th century Scotland. She’s a skilled archer who must try to save her family by undoing a witch’s curse.

It’s no surprise that young girls now have a new animated female heroine that they’ll want to emulate. Princess Merida makes for a great Halloween costume and also provides a strong role model for young kids. Her heroic ways and beauty shine through in the movie, as well as in the costume.  Film critic Roger Ebert even noted that the new movie “Brave” had “an uplifting message about improving communication between mothers and daughters.”  What’s not to love about that?

Merida is shown on the theatrical movie release poster with her brilliant blue eyes and flowing curly red hair as wields her bow and arrow.  Princess Merida’s costume is sold in two different styles currently, one dress which is a light blue with yellow/gold trim, and another which is a darker blue dress and includes a wig. You’ll also need to find some yellow/gold slippers or Gold Glitter Sandals to complete the look.

There is also the Brave bow and arrow set which makes an additional costume accessory to really set a young girl’s Halloween costume apart from the others.

This new Halloween costume is available for children and toddlers, in the two different variations mentioned above. A Merida wig is also being promoted with her trademark red hair. The Merida Brave costume is currently available for pre-order at BuyCostumes.com, with other versions selling for higher prices here at Amazon.com.

We fully expect the Princess Merida costume to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes this year and beyond. It should join other popular Disney princess characters such as Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, and Jasmine in the most sought-after costumes for girls.  Also, don’t consider this just a Halloween costume, as there’s sure to be plenty of occasions for dress up, or “Brave” themed parties as well.
