The setting is just gorgeous! The Angle and the HD quality is amazing as well! And the expressions are well done too! But the horse needs to be more of a clydesdale horse since Angus is one and also the horse needs more hair on the mane and the mane is curlier than Angus's mane in the film. I think the dress is a bit too dark it needs to be more of a Turquoise With a touch of Navy blue, And my final nit-pick is the hair needs to a bit shorter than the hip. I do love it!
What do you think?

Nice.
The use of 'Angus' makes the cosplay stand out among the 'usual stuff' if you'll forgive the term.
It feels, in some ways, less staged.

I often don't like cosplay because it don't really look like the characters it is supposed to. But even if this wasn't a cosplay it would have been excellent because it is so beautiful. And here I didn't have to think a second to see it was Merida.
I wonder if you have done anything with the background, after taking the photo cause it looks much clearer than photos usually do to me.

Thank you so much! I really understand you! I strongly believe that no cosplayer can portray Merida but I enjoyed "pretending". I'm not sure about the post-production, but it was a light day without sunshine. I have a video, you can compare [link]

How lovely! Gorgeous photo and what a beautiful shire! C: How many hands is he?

I'm surprised to see some comments from people who have never ridden bareback, I love riding bareback and do it all the time, although I own my own horse. All of the drafts I've ridden have been bareback because the owners didn't have a saddle with a large enough tree. :XD:

I'm not sure about the size, the owner said smth about 2.80 meters with the head.

*A* So awesome! Where did you learn to ride bareback? Our clubs don't allow it, I only managed a trot without stirrups, but on a significantly smaller horse :D. I'd be afraid to try it with a Shire. [Although, if you fall off one, I guess you could almost use skydiving equipment, considering how huge they are. :XD:]

Oh it's so nice to hear from a fellow horse-rider))) First, you're right - riding bareback is not spread even in Russia. I have firends who stand up for the natural horsemanship and they let me ride their horses for free. And I also took private lessons and paid quite a sum for bareback trotting and galloping. that man was a master, a teacher and a hell of a rider. He gave me the most important thing: confidence! And I bow to him. That's it, my little story. Shire or not - I'm fearless when it comes to cosplay.
p.s. the skydiving joke is THE JOKE OF THE MONTH for me! WIN! :trophy:

Having recently tried bareback riding, I have to say I have new-found loads of respect for you :XD:. I mean, how can you possibly sit comfortably on a horse that's not obese (and spineless)? I got bruises in places I didn't know could bruise...

Is it ok that I'm laughing right now? :) That's because I remember my bruises! Each one! It was like "Damn! How come?!" So yep, I understand your pain 100%! And it's not comforting to know that it's gonna be like that every time without a saddle. You just can't help it.
