While reading article on pre historic string making HERE
I noticed the rather glamourous recreation picture of the Egtved Girl and found some Images

Also, more costume examples On This Blog.

Just though it was interesting :twisted:

Ooh, now, that's just like the Abba quandary. :? Go with the Blond like everyone else or go with the dark one to be different?

Sorry for dragging your post down so early Bandraoi. :roll:

Good response from the Viking Answer Lady, as usual :mrgreen:
and ideas on how to make that rather fetching skirt... Egtved Girl

Anybody think they could make one of these?
Anybody fancy showing me how to make one of these? :twisted:

The ACTUAL girl was blonde, apparently, and was probably kinda hot. Before she died (was ritually sacrificed?), and got buried in a bog, and the 3,400 years passed, an' all.

I met the first pictured lady in a roundhouse in Cornwall a few years ago. She did a dance in the gear.
Very, enlightening.

:shock: Most of you guys have never even met me. I could be a dead ringer for Gimli, then we'd see who wanted me to "volunteer" as the Egtved Girl :lol: :lol:
