Can you spot the tiny me standing in our camp at the Kilfjord Larp discussing the meal plan for the evening all across the camp? 😅 This wonderful collection of tents and people really felt like home and family. I'm so glad to see some of them again in 3 weeks to do stupid things at the Epic Empire Larp. 📷 Photo by The Kelric View

Flashback Friday to the first bloom of the year in my beloved Düppel. I kind of miss the blossoms but I'm also curious to see autumn flowing into the open air museum! Have a wonderful weekend y'all 🍃.

It was wool-day at the open air museum Düppel and beside various spinning and felting workshops, a good mate plant-deyed wool and silk. Well...I couldn't resist and got myself this beautiful silk shawl, plant-deyed with Tansy. I love those light pastel colours! Unfortunately I wasn't able to make some photos of my new apron dress but I will try to make some after my exams in two weeks. And after that I will finally start my 15th century gown project that I already should've started but hey...why would I change things and start early? 😅 Fabrics will be ordered by tomorrow 📍 .

Our beloved camp at dawn. Back on the left you can spot the hot tub surrounded by tourches where we enjoyed a calming sunset with wine, mead and songs about brave warriors. It was a truely wonderful evening.
The stunning photo was made by my mate Kelric. I admired his work for years and now I can't wait to meet him again next month to make some photos of my upcoming project with him at the Epic Empires!
Btw, the creepy fog was freaking us all out 😅 It was constantly moving around and kept us wondering what could be hiding in it...

Another pictures of our last historical larp. I was just casually sewing the straps of my new apron dress while guarding. Hope to be able to make some good pictures of the dress soon. I'm so glad it turned out nice and lightweight, it's perfect for summer time.

I bought some new glass beads at the Kilfjord Larp in this beautiful vibrant orange, yellow and dark grey and for my slavic portrayal a small but beautiful Lunula pendant.

I'm back from the Kilfjord 5, an historical larp and here's just a small selection of photos I made there. It was just brilliant! We met so many wonderful people, trained our fighting skills, had a lot of fun competing at some viking games and enjoyed a nice bath in a hot tub with good company. Again it was so nice to see people breathing life into the campsite with plant-dyeing fabrics, forging jewellery and tools and weaving cloths and bands. That's what I love the most about living history. I joined in and finished my new summer apron dress, a nalbinded hat and worked on my comb weaving band. My highlights however were a midnight blot held by an amazing Völva and watching a deer being skinned and gutted. Sounds disgusting I know but it was really fascinating! Other then that I'm so grateful for all the conversations about different clothing findings and funny stories at the gate keeping night shifts. Special thanks to all the skalds for the beautiful poems I heard and the songs we sang together ☘ . . .

I always start my projects WAAAAY too late and that's why I finish most of them at the event I actually wanted to use or wear it. But at least it's something to fill the free time and I really enjoy sewing and chatting with others who also need to finish some work. Here I embroidered our banner while a friend did some tabletweaving.

Sorry for being so quiet lately. I enjoyed a bit of free time wich means gaming, cooking and cuddle sessions with my man. I really needed a break after those stressing weeks but now I feel energized again and will finish some viking projects before I start something completely new and different. But don't worry I will keep the viking content high. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend 🍀 •

We are back from an adventurous week and inaugurated our camp equipment at the very first larp event for our viking group. Because of the sweet stick bread and flatbread I made locally our camp welcomed lots of people to stay and enjoy the hospitality of northmen. We earned so many coins through contracts and definitely gained a good reputation. Our nordic themed area also hosted a contest which was really fun and I even won in one discipline. I'm so tired and exhausted right now but also so thankful for that wonderful week!
Oh and there might be some awesome shots and even some video scenes of us fighting in battle which I will share with you as soon as I can find them. Stay tuned and have a nice week 🍀. #viking #norse #medieval #earlymedieval #vikingcamp #larp #germanlarp #vikingreenactment #reenactment #camping #camplife #northmen #vikinglife #liveactionroleplay #liverollenspiel #heathen #livinghistory
