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.
