Now if you're new to this site or not you can probably tell that there is a deep medieval theme going on in this blog and you would be right but the extact theme is viking orientated. You see I LOVE VIKINGS! AND ANYTHING REMOTELY LINKED TO THEM! Be it culture, history, language, books fiction and non-fiction but most importantly their Norse Mythology as that is what's inspired my latest novel in progress Soul Chaser *chapters 1 to 6 are up listed at the top if you would like to have a scan through* But the highlight of any genuine Viking fan in the UK at least is the Jorvik Viking Festival held at Jorvik (aka York in North Yorkshire to those who are unfamiliar with the danish name) each spring half term.
Now I've been attending these festival for the past 5 years in a row and each one has inspired me to be that bit more daring my wearing my medieval mythic costume: here I am
The dress I cunningly got from a fancy dress shop but the cloak is all hand made with the help of a good friend of mine who put the base together then I embellished its side and back with many mythical symbols of Norse mythology and plenty of dazzling runes. Please visit my Valkyrie Creations section for closer detail pictures of it - listed at the top.
Now I can proudly proclaim that next years Jorvik Festival dates have been released with a teasing detail about the first opening event. Please follow this link http://www.jorvik-viking-centre.co.uk/viking-festival/ to book that week off in your calendar and come celebrate our rich Viking heritage in part of the Old Danelaw itself (aka North Yorkshire).
Do hope you can make it because I most certainly will be there!
