I did a lot of costume prepping this time even adding period embroidery.
The goal for me was to create a more Kypchak inspired outfit this time. Though my Reenactment always claimed Birka as location, I am a Viking with Kypchak roots and use elements of both cultures to be exact ;)
This sort of veil is still worn by the Bashkir of Russia and sometimes also the Tatars. This sort of jacket/coat is still worn by most turkic peoples in sometimes a modernized version. It was also very popular among the Rus Vikings.
The kid's costumes were made of fabric scraps!

Human size cotton candy :D
My veil went back a bit more than planned but it was so heavy!

Fun with store lights. "Remember me":
I will continue to work on the embroidery until Spring!
