What we really appreciate is not so much the realistic looks as the realistic conclusion that most of us here can’t afford the kind of dresses most of these princesses end up wearing at the end of their movies.
Like most of the collection, the attire here is of a more inexpensive sort…
From the part of the movie where Belle is still struggling with the day-to-day.
Looks no worse for it, though.
I guess this one is more realistic because real-life Merida probably wouldn’t be allowed to run around with a bow and arrows at that age.
Then again, she probably also wouldn’t have accidentally turned her mother into a bear and went on an adventure, so maybe it’s a wash.
