 I'm making Viking Age Norse garb for myself, FINALLY. It will be an apron dress and a short sleeve tunic dress for underneath. They most likely didn't wear short sleeves since the areas in which the Norse occupied are rather chilly, but this is for hot summer events in New England. I do have long sleeve tunic dresses already too that I can use to layer for when it's cooler out.


I always found it funny that we know more about what the Norse wore because of Viking settlements that have been so well preserved than we do later centuries in mainland Europe.

The green will be the tunic and the orange the apron-dress. I already did the festoon with the typical green Roman glass beads that Norse women thought were so pretty, and some natural stone beads as well.

I should probably point out that my brooches are more Saxon than Norse, but I'm going for more of the Danish style dress anyway and since the groups liked to kill each other a lot, I'm sure good Viking husband bring home shiny present for wife. Much like my torc that Richter made me. Shiny present from dead Gaul.

I also have more Party-Saxon garb in the works. More horrific plaid peplos fun for trolling around Pennsic on a hot day! Hooray for Saxon violence!

ZOMG FINISHED (OR IS IT FINNISHED? HAHA!).





Again, I doubt short sleeves were period for anyone in the Norse culture, but they also didn't have swampy ass Cape Cod to deal with in June or Western Pennsylvania in August. Plus I already have a long sleeve tunic dress. It's not trimmed, but it works.

You'll notice that the gores on the dress are brown and not green...I fucked up cutting.  :lulz: So I did the most period thing, and that was throw in whatever fabric I had.

From under the piles of Royal Guard robes, I will emerge victorious! Beyond the years of steam and into the years of diesel, depression and pulp!

Oh yes, Margo Lane, here I come!

I'm the Costume Cabaret Coordinator at the Steampunk World's Fair now.

...And I'm a probable workmanship judge at Arisia.




I'm putting all of this shit on my resume.

I haven't updated this in a LONG. ASS. TIME.

But here is my IndieGogo.
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-support-angband/x/1583287

I'm not expecting you spags to pitch in, though last time LMNO and Cain helped with my book. (I still have Alphapance's stuff because I never got an address, and I figured I'll see him in Boston eventually.) Just share it around the intarwebs please. I should start posting pics of my apocalypse dalmatica since I'm going to start beading it. Again.
