So I go to York next week to a big viking festival. I have been getting my kit together as I want to be warm, and well, we aren't wearing ordinary clothes!
I have a fine linen dress, a heavier linen dress, and last night I made myself a wollen tunic.
I was going to make a wollen overdress, but I decided to try and kill two birds with one stone and make a tunic I could theoretically use when in the battle arena. (I haven't done this yet, but I hope to one day, so it won't hurt to be prepared!)
So in York I am going to try and buy some new kit. I have been told that anything and everything viking kit can be bought there. So I have to decide what I will buy.
Should I buy a sword or an axe?
Do I want a leather quiver?
Do I want new boots?
Would I like a viking vanity set of earcleaners and tweezers?
If you have been, please feel free to point me in the right direction.
