Cosplaying With A Bear? You Gotta Be Brave

Cosplaying with a Bear? You Gotta Be Brave

Goodness! That's model Tina Rybakova hanging out in the snow with a large bear. Rybakova is apparently supposed to be Merida from the Disney movie Brave (maybe?), but her costume doesn't quite match up with the character's. She does have red hair, which certainly helps pull off the cosplay. Oh, and a bear. That helps, too!

These images popped up late last month and are currently making their way through Chinese and Japanese cosplay sites. The photos are from Moscow-based fashion photographer Dasha Kond, who often uses real animals in shoots, whether they are wolves, camels, horses, snakes, and more.

You can see more of Kond's work in the links below.

    That's not a bear......that's me going for a naked snow walk.............

      Might need to wax. Although it would be cold so I guess you have adapted well to your environment....

    Actually its not merida its Aela the Huntress from skyrim. the thing missing the face painting

    That bear looks like it's given up, like it's empty inside...

    Looks way more like Skyrim cosplay (Ayla the Huntress maybe, although no warpaint).

    This is Brave cosplay, which looks nothing like this - http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130514010842/disney/images/7/7c/Brave-disney-2.jpg

    That Bear looks totally whacked.

    Is it just me or has the whole cosplay thing starting to become a, "who can out do who" for supreme cosplay glory. There's seems to be a level of elitism happening where the fundamentals of just having fun are being lost.

    "This girl had the audacity to wear inappropriate battle-armor and not everyone is happy."

      The bear is naked and no one's complaining. He doesn't seem to mind her attire either.
