We dressed as Warrior Merida and William Wallace for Celtic weekend at the Maryland and STL Renaissance Festivals in 2022. We had an amazing time introducing our niece and nephew to the Ren Fest and traveling to our first out of town Fen Faire with our friends Anne and Geran.
We upgraded Scott’s kilt from 2018 to matching kilts with our friends Geran and Anne. Last time Scott was William Wallace, everyone said “you’re that guy from Brave!” So we ran with the theme, and Geran dressed up as the guy from Brave, Lord Macintosh. Anne was Boudicca, warrior queen of the Iceni tribe of Celtic Britons. My Merida costume was a hodge podge of parts from previous costumes (dress, corset, archery set, and wig). 3D printed the Merida buckle and glued it to an old belt.
Here’s a video montage from the Maryland Ren Fest.
Here’s the video montage from all 3 of our STL Renaissance Festival visits in 2022 which also included Steampunk Tinkerbell, Peter Pan and Oktoberfest German costumes.
Here are more pictures from both Ren Fests.
Here’s how I made Scott’s new shield.
