This is from SilentMermaid21's dA and I have to agree with her- regardless of everyone's hate for the 2D Merida- she HAD to be transitioned because otherwise she doesn't work with the rest of the princess line. The sparkles were necessary because the WHOLE LINE has them (I mean, it's AIMED AT LITTLE GIRLS). I can understand why Brenda Chapman didn’t like the image on the right here because she doesn’t have any of Merida’s classic feel. But the one in the image above definitely does- It’s MERIDA, as a PRINCESS. I think she looks amazing, and have all intents to cosplay this version.
