Lagertha

I’m toying with the idea of making a Lagertha costume so I’ve been all over Amazon picking out the costume.

Who would think you can get everything you need from Amazon to make the costume?

  1. Lagertha Viking shield ($199)
  2. Blond Lagertha wig ($13.23)
  3. Blond clip in dreadlocks ($159.95)
  4. Viking dreadlock beads ($18.99)
  5. Navy blue shirt ($8.65 – $34.99)
  6. Faux chainmail tunic ($52.30)
  7. Dark brown over-the-bust corset ($29.99 – $35.99)
  8. Women’s brown pants ($20.90)
  9. Brown slouchy boots ($16.05 – $35.28)
  10. Brown faux leather braces ($12.99)
  11. Medieval ring belt ($12.99)
  12. Viking sword ($43.02)

I’m totally loving this outfit, not for Burning Man, but for Halloween or a Vikings party.

If I work on this costume, and I’m not saying I will, there’s a chance I will take a picture of myself in the costume to send to Scandinavia.

Just because I have friends there who might get a kick out of seeing me in full Viking garb.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with synthetic hair.

I bought two clip in bangs – one red and one blue – for my Tank Girl costume.

I put them on under the trapper hat and tuck my hair into the cap and voilà!

I have Tank Girl’s colored hair without dying my own.

The clip in bangs remind me of some Swarovski crystal clip in extensions which I bought to wear at a Labyrinth-themed wedding at unSCruz.

So pretty!

So I scoped out custom synthetic clip in dreads on Etsy and lo and behold they have a selection of options for me.

Personally I love these Viking clip in extensions:

I also like these boho clip ins:

As much as I’d love to get them, it’s a little crazy for me to buy them thinking I’d wear them on the playa.

For one, the playa DESTROYS everything it comes in contact with.

For another, it’s hard enough to get a brush through my regular hair, let alone try to keep it neat and tidy with clip in extensions in while at Burning Man.

So I’m going to forego extensions for the time being but I’m really starting to feel the Viking vibe coming off this photo:

And I’m thinking it might be my inspiration photo for my next Burning Man outfit.

Le sigh!
