This armour is made to complete our “Shieldmaiden” collection with lightweight functional and elegant women's armor. Our goal was to unite our skills of making leather corsets and other period attire which emphasizes figure and our armor craftsmanship skills of making functional and originally-looking ancient style protective gear.
Not every era and not all nations can boast such women as the Scandinavian #Viking ladies - women that could enjoy a vast array of rights and endless freedom.
A Viking woman was a ladylove and a source of inspiration, a mother and a domestic goddess - but at the same time she could defend honour and home being fully armoured and ready to go into battle alongside with men and even command the warriors. Scandinavian beauties married and divorced at will, conquered land and revenged insults, wore dresses and jewellery, weapons and armour suits.
Our new collection "Shieldmaiden" combines all these images offering various items of clothing and accessories ranging from summer sandals to durable boots, from the linen tunics and sundresses to light but reliable armour. With the "Shieldmaiden" collection you can create a memorable image of a Viking lady who is easy to fall in love with but hard to win.
Every princess - both fairy and the real one - has to deal with troubles, tragedies and disasters. Every princess can find herself in a state where dresses with train, golden crown and ermine mantle are inappropriate and where she needs durable shoes, traveling dress of an easy-care fabric and a warm cozy cape for weather protection. But never the real princess falls asleep on a pea though covered with dozen feather-beds and never the real princess ignores etiquette, delicacy and elegance. If you are a princess fated to wander in search of shelter and protection - this garb is just the one for you!( moreCollapse )
This year, to start a new season with a new line of products for our beautiful customers we designed several new models of elegant women's footwear for LARP, SCA and other period occasions.
Both pairs are:
Combat Western Armor Kit
Circa XIV century
Perfect functional armor for both historical reenactment tournaments and SCA sport usage. Late XIV century design kit. Each element of these arms and legs can be used separately or in combination with other parts which provides you great functionality and flexibility.
Actually we though about few simple tunics to replace our outdated classic cotton tunics. But then imagination and creativity of our designers and craftsmen led us to making really big collection of Viking's clothing and gear.( "From the fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord."Collapse )
