Gudvangen Vikingmarked 2013 part two


The scenery was so divine that even our gods would behold it in silence.







This guy was so friendly. We ened up chatting for quite some time. I do enjoy talking to people at markets like these. Many came up to me and I really appreciated talking to every one of you who did. My heathen heart truly beats for you guys.

I found time to breathe here. 



My outfit



These girls were adorable. They were playing with the ashes of a bonfire, and I told them that they were cute. They replied: "We know," and that made them even cuter in my eyes. Adorable and arrogant? I love it. 

Gudvangr is beautiful and very peaceful. Believe it or not - vikings do not fight all the time. We spend a lot of time on looting bling too. 



I am so weak for skulls. I wanted to grab this particular one and run away screaming with joy. But  one cannot act that insane - or rude. 
Mark my words, people of Midgard ...I shall have one, one way or the other. 

I was waiting for mead from a friend. Sometimes, you have to get a little medicine to get through the day ;)

Behold!!! More skulls. 

Where there is weapons...

...You will find me. 

Next year I shall return to pillage with pride.
Gudvangr better be ready for me yet again.

Borre

I recently visited Borrehaugene again to feel the energies and take a few pictures of the scenery. To my pleasant surprise, I found a viking longhouse (under constructuon) that is soon to be finished. During the Viking Festival at Borre (6~7th of July) they will open it for the audience to see. That's what it is all about - Bringing the ancient into modern.

~Oslo Medieval Faire, summer 2012~




I found that there are many viking age related items for sale at Medieval Faires.

Will you just look at this epic drinking horn.













My look, day one. I designed and made this dress many years ago.

(The two photos of me above were taken by Ida Sofie Vesterelv) 



I met Erik and Johan Holst from Gycklargruppen Trix





Friends came from far and wide...;

Frøydis

Sara


Ida Sofie and Camilla Rose

Tathariel, my sister in spirit.

My look, day two. The dress I am wearing is modified by me. It used to look completely different.

Just chilling. I found it amusing.

Medieval Faires are great fun to attend. I met a lot of blog readers and friends.
This summer, I am going to attend many Viking Faires and Medieval Faires. 

I am wondering who I might meet this time-
Whom of my readers are going to Faires in Norway this summer? 
Which Faires are you going to attend?

Viking "Fight Video"


My dearest sister in spirit Tathariel and I participated in a "viking fight" video this Autumn with some admirable warriors.
Here?s the result of the hair whipping, steel clanking, muscle flexing and muddy adventure
