    Too much makeup for me, but the dress and the general aesthetic, is cool.

    She is very pretty, in my opinion, and I like the dresses and jewellery, but the overuse of what I assume to be injectable hyaluronic acid fillers distracted me.

    I'd settle for a woman in a dress.

    In recent years, I've seen some women opting for the Viking-era dress at the National Day celebration in Norway, instead of the more common folk costumes, which are rooted in 19th and 18th century fashions. I think that's nice, but wearing it all the time in everyday life situations just seems misplaced and a bit pretentious. But whatever floats their boat... At least they're celebrating their heritage.

    So she has schizophrenia. You want A to preserve but import B which seeks to destroy A. Sounds idiotic to me. Is idiotic.

    The photos by Fylgje are better, I support that. I just don't have the body to wear it...

    It can be interesting and raise awareness and pride in one's ancestors. However while the attire is suitable for singing folk songs and attending festivals and events, dressing up like a Viking in everyday life can look a bit anachronistic. Clothes have function that is era-appropriate and if Vikings were still around today it's doubtful they would be wearing the same type of clothing they did thousands of years ago.

    Well, I like to think they still are... Not so many, but still a couple of them left...

    I don't keep (automatically) anybody who tries to live like vikings .... so called today's vikings. For me ''today's Viking'' is more a spiritual/mental matter than anything else.
    In Scandinavia: Soft people ain't today's vikings, the leftists people ain't today's vikings .... but pure firecrackers are .

    Or that's how I like to see it.
