Merrill by BuildMyPaperHeart Merrill by BuildMyPaperHeart
Merrill from Dragon Age II.

First to the Keeper, Last of her Kind.

This is the first time I've cut out eyes from paper for a figure. I'm happy with the results! Merrill's costume is surprisngly simple, but don't let that fool you! It's not the overall detail, but the small ones, that make her costume. Lots of costume makers miss the inner-elbow and back-of-the-knee cutouts, as well as the fact that her leather greaves only cover the front. So all you Merrill cosplayers, make sure you have those modifications :)

This was a really fast build for not having two of the colors at the beginning of the project. Took about a week to finish this, though I credit that to having lots of free time.

Thanks to my sister for drawing those tattoos! She says they were really hard.

The design is my own, made long before I heard about Minecraft. It was more inspired by Cubeecraft than Minecraft but I wanted it to be a little more realistic and playable, so I made my own body type :)

I'm glad you enjoy it though!
