Sorta Viking by Xavietta Sorta Viking by Xavietta
This is me in my RenFaire garb ^^ The top is a new style I'm selling and the cloak is a full reindeer hide, with minimal stitching to give it some shape, and sharks teeth on the closures. The skirts were pieced together a few years ago from leather scraps. I usually have some bracers and my antlers on, but for some reason I wasn't wearing them...

looks more like a fantasy viking in the eyes of a novice clothing historian

haha thanks? I want to make more wintery viking gear but living in Florida there's maybe 2 days out of the year I would be able to wear it.

yeah I'm here too "it saddens me" >.< I love heavy skins and furs! but I meant "Layers" as in more details :D like some carving on that horn, maybe a blade and sheath 'some more embellishment that comes from customizing and expressing your personality more!'
   -to polity and poetically say it's just a little on the 'plain' side but it "and the person wearing it" are a great foundation for a very cool outfit! this photo stood out among all the others I was viewing XD so that's saying something

Oh! haha, I totally agree! The horn actually has a pewter dragon on the tip and there's a viking rune and some feathers on the sheath thing. I change my costume for ren-faire so often I don't get a chance to add very much personality to it before I move on to something else. This year my friend and I are doing more of a Dothraki theme for my booth and our costumes, so hopefully I can get some nice detail on everything :D
