I have recently created my artist page on fb so I can finally take orders from reenactors everywhere and not just from word to mouth.  If you appreciate my work, please like my page ^^… Thank you :)


Symbelmune's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
I'm 26, self taught seamstress,and viking reenactor. I have a master's degree in English (LLCE) from Lyon's University and I am currently looking for a job in teaching, or something more artistic.

3 years ago I lived in York, UK and I got to join The Vikings, a UK wide society for saxon, viking and norman reenactment.
My boyfriend and I went back to the UK for Hastings 2010, Hastings 2011, and Hastings 2012. It's an experience I recommand to any viking, norman and anglo-saxon reenactors.

I'm currently involved in a 11th century norman mercenaries reenacting group, Les Corbeaux. We participate in historical events such as Hastings or Falaise and medieval fairs.

My close friends and me have recently founded our own little group, Grńvlingar, and specialize in viking reenactment.

Current Residence: Lyon
Favourite genre of music: Metal !
Favourite style of art: clothing and accessories creation
MP3 player of choice: Creative Zen
Favourite cartoon character: Rather game character: Lara Croft

Hello there! I am real curious about Viking reenactors. Is this real? I would die to be an reenactor! I was going to be an reenactor for the Confederate soldiers from the American Civil War. But, alas, this did not happen; for I have no way to get to events as of yet. 

I was wondering, how do you become an Viking reenactor? What do you do? I'd love to learn about it! ^_^

Hello Gracelyn, if you are in the US, I'd suggest getting in touch with the SCA, society for creative anachronism, they have lots of groups all over the country, and they do a lot of different period, so you might find something near you ! Being a Viking reenactor is very fun ^^ I love sports so obviously, fighting is a big part of reenacting the period for me, but there is also costume making, cooking, various crafts and taking care of the camp in general :)

Thank you so much for replying! I was beginning to think it wasn't a type of event that would take place over here in the US. But I'm glad it does! I will look into this this weekend when I'm off. =) 

Thanks again! And beautiful gallery :)

I am absolutely in awe of your skill! I have joined a reenactment group, the Society of Creative Anachronism and am working on hopefully getting some garb. Do you ship to the US?
Symbelmune Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi, thank you and sorry I didn't reply earlier, I had a lot of work :)

I know SCA of course, and I can ship to the US, what did you have in mind ?
l80maddux Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014
My persona is Norse Viking, but also considering Germanic but don't know a lot about either. I'm going to be doing heavy fighting and archery so not the typical "stay at home mom" Viking, more of a shield maiden look is what I'm going for. I also apologize for the late reply, I couldn't remember my username and password until I figured out which email I used for it. Lol.
