The Greatest Sorcerer to ever walk the Earth

"I'll be here like I always am, protecting you" Merlin

I have a big crush on Colin Morgan so I recently went on a Netflix binge of the BBC TV show Merlin starring Colin Morgan and Bradley James. Merlin is one of my favourite shows, I'm a big fan of the genre and the story, but what I love most about this particular show is the chemistry between Merlin and Arthur. They are absolutely spectacular together so as a result i've created two outfits one for Arthur and of course, one for Merlin.

Merlin's outfit was really fun to put together, I started with the blue t-shirt I purchased from Kmart for $8, it washes really well and it's an awesome price (I also have it in grey). The brown jeans I purchased from Cotton On about 4 years go for the bargain price of $5, they originally formed part of my cowboy costume so it felt appropriate to reuse them for Merlin.

I was having a bit of a shoe dilemma with this outfit, none of my existing boots really fit the look. I was about ready to give up when I came across these perfect boots in Novo for $25! What a bargain, it felt like destiny.

Merlin usually wears a long thin brown jacket but I wanted something a bit more stylish so I added a pleather tan jacket I found in Dotti which I think works really well with the look and also makes it a bit more modern.

Finally, last but not least, the iconic red scarf! I thought this would be difficult to find but it was actually the first part I found (that I didn't already own). There is this great little scarf shop at a local shopping centre, it's beautiful and soft and I was able to reuse it for my Arthur outfit as well. 

This was a lot of fun and I can't wait to wear the full look out and about! My only wish is that I had magic just like Merlin, but I guess that isn't my destiny.
