SL DisneyBound – Merida

The talented Natalee Oodles of Style Minions has been holding an ongoing blogger challenge for about 6 weeks now called Disneybound. You can learn more about the challenge from her first initial post introducing it. Every week I have been watching in awe as so many have been styling themselves up resembling Disney characters. I have been aching to participate but I haven’t had the time. But this week is Merida of Brave and I absolutely could not resist.

Merida is one of my most favorite Disney characters. Unlike the other Disney Princesses that usually need a man to “save the day;” Merida is a fiery, independent and brave girl who can take care of herself! I absolutely adored this movie and the relationship between the mother and daughter was especially touching.

I’m so happy I got the opportunity to participate in Natalee’s challenge this week. I am going to try and join in whenever I can. If you’d like to join, check out her Disneybound tag to see all of the ones she’s done so far and you can also join the flickr group.

I decided to take my images at the beautiful Straylight sim. It had been a while since I had visited there. It’s definitely one of my most favorite places on the grid.

Whenever I participate in a challenge that is run by another blogger, I put that post in my challenges category. Due to lack of time, I don’t get the opportunity to do them often. Hopefully I’ll be able to make time to participate in more. I really had a lot of fun with this one! Hope you guys participate as well. I’d love to see more Meridas!

    Beside Merida, you also very much resemble Maid Marion from the 80s Robin of Sherwood TV show (aka Judy Trout). I always wanted to look like her when I was a teen watching that show. I thought for sure, when I started in SL, that I would arrange for my Avatar look like Marion, but because of one thing and another, not so much. I really love what you’ve done here. Bravo!

    ::Remembers self:: Oh, hi! First time comment-er here. I’m a big big fan of your blog! I’ve been in SL for about two years now, but I’m just getting into blogging about it. You have been an inspiration. I plan to tackle your all your memes this summer when I have more time to write.

    Lolanthe, I remember watching Robin hood in the 80s as a child and now that I think of it, you're right, I do look like Maid Marion! Thank you for the kind comments, looking forward to your responses to my memes. <3

    The images are lovely. However, I’m interested in actually finding a designer who makes a great “animated movie” version of Merida. I found E.V.E. from WALL-E, but I’ve yet to find any other Disney characters – probably a copyright issue. huh?
