Samurai Merida by Skirtzzz Samurai Merida by Skirtzzz
When quest time rolls around, Merida trades in her beloved arrows for a sword and is ready to kick some tail. She may be the new girl, but I think she's got enough moxie for 10 princesses. She is the Samurai!
There is absolutely nobody suited for this sphere...which stinks- this is easily one of my top three from the game. So uh. YEP. I wasn't sure where I was going with this outfit- I tried to mix in Celtic themes of hers along with some saturated gradient fabrics from the FF Samurai outfits, and made up a random headpiece to match those. I have no idea. Blah.

Final Fantasy Dressphere Reference

Check out the rest of the series here!

Merida- Disney/Pixar
Samurai Dress Sphere- Final Fantasy X-2

Check out this awesome Fanfic for Samurai Merida!

There have been a lot of people asking me if they can cosplay these designs, and the answer is YES! The only thing is I would appreciate credit and a link back to my gallery here, and I demand you show me all of the pictures so I can cry over them and die happily- that is all! Thank you so much!

Are there really that many classes in the game? I've seen like about…10-15 different classes…

okay, i loooooove this, and the whole series - just found them today - but i just. have a question. why is mulan the warrior and merida the samurai? XD they could easily switch! (i know, i know, japanese =/= chinese but it's closer than irish XD)

BUT ANYWAY, they're both awesome badass ladies!!!

First of all thank you so much! <3 I appreciate that! :'D
Second- it was Mulan = Samurai for a loooong time- but it really gave folks the red ass. Culturally speaking- and I was really bummed it had upset that many people! So, I made the switch. Wasn't sure what else to do XD *le sigh*
