I attended the Medieval Christmas Fair in Visby this weekend and it was soooo magical! It didn’t feel like winter at all, with the dull and rainy weather and wet streets, but I did some ”snow dancing” during the late friday evening. My friends watched me with this ”she’s crazy or at least a bit silly”-look on their faces, but I really think the God of snow was amused! Because on saturday night and sunday the biggest and most beautiful snowflakes started to fall. So thank me, my friends, thank me!
The clothes I’m wearing is made for the occasion – a christmas edition of my beloved archery costume! I must say I love the wine red color, even though I often prefer to use more earthy color tones. The cloak is borrowed from Lovisa, my belt and belt accessories are bought on different medieval fairs in Sweden, my longbow is from the Swedish company ”Bågar och pilar”, my boots is second hand and the rest is all made by me 🙂
I never feel as pretty, as self-confident or as invincible, as I do when I’m in the Middle Ages. Something happens when I’m dressing up with cloak and hood. My steps get lighter and my soul shed it’s wings. Love that feeling!
