Ragnar Lothbrok

Let’s be honest, the ENTIRE reason I watch Vikings is to see Travis Fimmel play Ragnar Lothbrok.

The love triangle between him, Aslaug and Lagertha is titillating to say the least.

So it comes as no surprise then that I’d want someone to play Ragnar to my Lagertha.


1.  Foam battle axe – $37.99

2.  Viking costume with shield – $79.98 including shield

3.  Men’s fur-lined cape – $30.15

4.  Brown leather wristband – $9.99

5.  Medieval ring belt – $41.00

6.  Brown medieval boots – $79.99 – $89.99

7.  Viking shield – $79.98 including costume

Ragnar and Lagertha

I’ve been thinking about having a Viking’s Ragnar Lothbrok to pair with my Lagertha outfit and it seems to me that there are sources out there where you can buy a full Ragnar costume for $2,300 or a cheaper version for $350.

Of course the only friend I have right now in my “Covid Bubble” is 6’7” tall and not a standard size therefore regular sized clothes won’t fit him.

But he’d make a remarkable Ragnar Lothbrok.

And let’s just take a second to appreciate Travis Fimmel and Katheryn Winnick’s on-screen chemistry in this YouTube video of the on-and-off-again lovers Ragnar and 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.

Do I like Vikings?

Do I like Vikings?

Vikings like this one?

Or this one?

Why yes, I think I do.

The Swede is descended from Vikings.

So am I, as least in part.

Maybe a Viking and a Scot fell in love a long time ago and to them I owe my whole existence.

Maybe a Viking PLUNDERED and PILLAGED a Scot village a long time ago and to that I owe my whole existence.

In reality, the story of my conception is pretty damn cool.

Two eighth graders fell foolishly in love and whoops!

Made a baby.

The Swede flies in on April 30th and we’re set to go on a date.

If he’s not too jet lagged.

I’m looking forward to seeing this modern day Viking again, just before UnSCruz.

The big news is. . .

. . . I have kicked Tejas out of our tent so that we can have some privacy.

Don’t worry, I’m bringing a backup tent for Tejas.

He was bummed when I told him but said it was predictable.

“Think of it as a way for you to get your own privacy too,” I hinted.

So there you have it.

I’m finally willing to admit I MAY want privacy with The Swede.

And by God, I’ll get it!
