It's a very simple, but incredibly comfortable costume. The blue linen dress is based on Simplicity 4940. The fur collar is borrowed from my daily wardrobe - I found a piece of fake fur at a second hand shop and made a linen backing for it. The crown, which sadly turned out too small and not as eye-catching as I could wish, is made from jewel beetle wings. (The beetle wings remind me of nails, and when Ragnarok happens Hela will come sailing to battle in Naglfar, a ship made from the nails of the dead. I liked the symbolism.) And the jewellery is borrowed from my viking wardrobe.
|Queueing for a couple of hours. I'm almost tempted to dress up like this outside costuming escapades.|
But the best part was sitting on this chair...
