A Medieval Dress worn with modern elements while hiking in the Taunus Mountains
I made this dress according to archeological evidence from the viking age. If you pay attention to the skirt you will see that triangualr gussets were added for width/ flare. The belt is not authentic, more of a fantasy interpretation of a girdle, but this look isn't meant to be authentic. Just modern with Medieval fashion.
There was this amazing tree that I could not resist!
Amazing views. Town seen from the top of the mountain.
Typical hairdo I wear at Medieval Fairs. Small braid adorned with fibula.
In some parts it was so windy and cold I had to cover my head. Root tangles aren't fun :/
I tried to use authentic Make Up only. So black kohl eyeliner pencil on my upper lid and inner lower lid. This was a very common make up in Viking culture.
Fun with a tree
Taking a break in the enchanted forest
Tourist on top of the rocks
This lady seems slightly confused about my appearance....:P
Cell Phone Pictures:
I think they are worth including because my new cell phone takes interesting pictures:
Iron spiral ring that I had custom made in this design and an amber ring.
Lapislazuli, Carnelian and Turqoise gemstones
And I managed to take a few cool dead tree selfies....selfies are better in a cool place aren't they? :D
