~Gudvangr Viking Market 2013, part two~


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




This guy was so friendly. We ended 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. Hand sewn, hand crafted, hand made. You get the picture.
Fabrics used: Linen, tablet weaving (Oseberg style)

I am in the process of modifying this to fit my body better. New pictures will be posted of it in the near future, for those of you who are interested in such.

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. These girls had attitude and style.

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.

Here, I was waiting for mead from a friend. Sometimes, you have to get a little medicine to get through the day 😉 Dear readers, let me let you in on a little secret: Many vikings travel to and from these markets in cars. Without modern devices of such, meeting fellow old souls would be a wee bit harder for everyone. Of course, one can travel by ship or horse, but not everyone has this opportunity. The most important thing is to come together. This is exactly what drew me to the viking environment in the first place  – I saw it as an inclusive one.

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!
