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

I always feel a bit guilty when I see a skillful piece of work and all I can focus on is how attracted I am to the character… o.o

What kind of leather did you use for the top? It looks briliiant; I've never gotten any leather I've worked to behave so well.

It's deerskin :) Nice and lightweight, good for garments, but sort of stretchy so you have to watch out for that with some projects.

Looks awesome!. I just scored one of those luscious reindeer hides from Tandy. They had them on sale for 89.00. I can't wait to use it on a project. I had a cape in mind when I bought it. Wonderful Garb!

Thank you! I usually have my hair about this length. I grew it out a couple months ago, but it frustrated me to no end and I chopped it off again.

I've definitely been there! I wore my hair short for about 10 years and the only reason I've grown it out now is for cosplay purposes! :)
