Tatterhood in the woods - based on a character created by me, inspired by a "Norse" fairy tale. Costume and makeup done by me, "accessories" were commissioned from various artisans. More pics here!


Made by me: two linen undergowns, wool apron dress, wool hood, leather pouch with antler toggle, belt, leather shoes and latex nose (and zits, scars and bruise makeup).

Bought: Costrel by Robert Harbin, knife from Wareham Forge, belt buckle and strap end from Fettered Cock Pewters, leg wraps from Wood-n-Woven, rings from Blackwood Jewellery and Pacific Celt (based on a lost ring I had got from the Ribe Viking Center in Denmark).

And the spoon is by Colin Johnson.

I love this character you dreamed up she is so....interesting. :D you are much prettier than the drawing of her you made.

Ha ha thanks, I think ;) ( I'm buried under tons of makeup, so I guess I still need to "up my ugly" to be closer to the character!)

So THAT'S why Colin brought that spoon that one night. :omg: :XD:

Everything about this costume looks so unbelievably great all the way down to the makeup (nice job on the bruise around the eye). :D

You have no idea how excited I am right now... I'm retelling Tatterhood for NaNoWriMo this November, and I just love it! Best fairy tale EVER. I love the costume, and I LOVE that there are other people who love Tatterhood!
Tatter-Hood's avatar
It's so awesome discovering other people who know the tale (thanks internetz!) and I *love* how others are doing their own interpretations! I'll keep an eye on your NaNoWriMo account; can't wait to read your version of the story!!

Ah yes, our friend the internet XD I was ridiculously excited to find someone else who knows about Tatterhood.
Well, my Nanowrimo's actually turning out pretty terrible, cos my life is like :work: right now and I haven't got a lot of time to think about continuity or characterization, but I'm planning on actually editing this year. This story's worth it. x3

I completely understand (and that emoticon perfectly describes my life!)
Can't wait to (eventually ;)) read it!

What Norse fairy tale is it inspired by? I love Norse mythology. I really love the image it inspired from you too!
