Yey for vikings and cosplays that don't need a wig! 8D

Coscon (Posted 1st October 2011)
Astrid's first outing was Coscon in Norway (today). There's still some details missing here and there, which will be completed for Expo at the end of the month.
And yes, Astrid was attaced by a dragon! :P
Underskirt, skirt and shoulder armour... (Posted 15th August 2011)
are more or less complete! BELIEVE IT! (shoulder armour only lacks the skulls). So here is a WIP picture, because I needed a break from working.
Also, the shape of the skirt looks horrid on this pic! XD That mannequin and this lighting doesn't work together XD
Spikes and skirt (Posted 26th June 2011)
Skirt has been made. As has all the spikes for the skirt. Skirt has also been weathered. Astrid doesn't seem like the kind of girl who plays around nicely and looks after her clothes... Now the spikes and skulls just have to be fastened to the skirt.
Skulls (Posted 19th June 2011)
The skulls are now painted, and ready for use! Just need to make the skirt that most of them go on now...
Pouch (Posted 19th June 2011)
Went to a Medieval Festival, and found a nice pouch for Astrid. It's not perfect in terms of shape and colour, but close enough! I chose to buy because I need Astrid done by Friday, so I'm running out of time. Found a puch - time saved. More importantly it's got a nice functioning clasp so I can keep my mobile phone and money in it. Yey for cosplays with bags! 8D
Skullsssss (Posted 12th June 2011)
Ok, I thought these skulls would take ages to make! But they actually didn't take that long. Though, long enough to make my head feel funny after breathing clay "fumes" for too long.
Wooooooo! Progress! 8D
