That’s right, I bought one yesterday. I’m wearing it to the NYC meet-up.
Oh my FUCK I need this!
WHY DON’T I OWN THIS ALREADY
Life is so unfair
I am a woman in construction. I would wear the HELL out of that when I get sent to a new job site. Fuck Yeah.
YESS!! This would be the most awesome thing for keeping your face warm AND leveling the playing field in a male dominated profession. Wish I had more thumbs for you, sweets!
You have my thumb.
AND MY AXE
AND MY VUVUZELA!
AND MY CODPIECE!
And my scissors.
‘Cause that beard looks a bit long and I’m worried it might get caught in something potentially destructive, on a construction site
You could get one made to go over a hard hat: “WHY YES, I AM WEARING MY HELMET.”
I am also a woman in construction & that is the BEST idea I’ve ever heard! I just may have to use it!
I like to keep my coworkers off balance. I tend to be happy and easy going, everyone calls me Sunshine. But as soon as someone crosses my boundries, I hit back hard. Otherwise they will walk all over you. One of my favorites is to smile sweetly then flip them off or curse like a Regretsy sailor. I also like to use big words so they don’t know I’ve insulted them until they have already started to walk away.
I am an IT dork who happens to be the first one in to our State Agency’s building every morning. They just installed spycams to watch the entrances. I have been wearing my Guy Fawkes mask, or having my (service)dog wear it, each morning to fuck with… well with anyone. I need to expand my FUCK YOU wardrobe and get every one of these fabulous fuckerying items.
I think my dog (the one over <—there as the avatar) would look best in the bearded viking one, please.
ETSY, today you have delivered!
SO MUCH WANT!
See, I deserve these because I am from Minnesota. See, Vikings, right? So, when will they arrive?
Years back, when I was in Munich at a language school with a diverse group of international classmates, I was disturbed to realize I associate “Viking” with “Minnesota” before I associate it with “Norway.”
I actually started knitting one for my brother the other day, realized he wouldn’t wear it, and ripped it back out. Shoulda kept going apparently.
Yes Please! I’ll take mine in “Uhtred of Bebbenburg”
King Magni Bronzebeard is free of the stone!
I want one so badly I could cry.
Oh my, this is AMAZING!
I know! Lemme see…I need one to be Eomer, one to be Gimli, one to be King Leonides….
I need one for each member of the family (including my month-old baby girl), and that will no doubt make for the most unexplainable Christmas card Grandma will ever receive.
And the most memorable!
And if it ever ends up on Awkward Family Photos, hoards of FJLs will comment with the (usually fucking irritating but in this case totally warranted) “OMG, THIS ISN’T AWKWARD. WHAT IS IT DOING ON THIS SITE? THIS IS AWESOME! CAN’T YOU FIND ANY AWKWARD PICS ANYMORE?”
You should let people sign up to get one. I would LOVE “A Viking Family Christmas” card!
OH MY FUCKING GOD, I just had a spasm! HOW MUCH ARE THESE???
Oh wow I had such a fit I didn’t see the one with the price on it. Seriously $65 is a DEAL!
INORITE? What is that, like $50 worth of yarn?
Kristuksen vittu, it’s already up to $95, no doubt thanks to you fat jealous losers!
This is clearly worth buying at ANY price.
WF, you are looking at the “Crocheted Celtic Warrior Helm Top Knot and Beard” listing (which is also awesome), not the “Crocheted Viking Dwarf Hat with Beard Made to Order”.
The seller’s awesomeness has not diminished via predatory pricing.
These are fucking amazing.
I have a thing for beards so this is really turning me on. I don’t crochet, but I do knit. I’m feeling inspired now and I think I know what I’m making my husband for our anniversary this year. Now when he decides to shave I can force him to wear one of these.
There’s a dwarven battle bonnet pattern for sale on ravelry.588 projects to peek through for inspiration, too.
My husband doesn’t shave his beard, lucky me.
I absolutely hate beards but I’d still love one of these.
For that matter, if real beards felt anything like crocheted yarn I’d probably be a bigger fan of those, too.
This is some gorgeous, hilarious, brilliant work.
Some beards, especially those of the ginger variety (which turn brilliant, gorgeous WHITE with age), tend to be very soft indeed. Not quite as soft as yarn, but not scratchy at all, either. Kind of poodly hair soft.
Oh god yes, beards.
I called my son in to look at these, and he immediately said, “Looks like dad.” Then we discussed ways of affording such yarny magnificence.
These are BRILLIANT, and a bargain at the price.
That was my thought, too. These are fantasically awestein, definitely worth more than what they’re asking for them.
Just the thing for when I’m pining for the fjords!
Monty Python reference FTW!
With that in mind, an obvious application: Life of Brian / stoning scene
He’s not pining, he’s bleeding demised!
Dwarf hat with beard and MOHAWK? Sign me the fuck up! Dammit. I wish I wasn’t broke on top of being fat, lazy, and jealous.
I know…the mohawk is fucking bonkers awesome. Genius, pure and simple.
I could pee myself I love that so much..
Sorry to go all pedantic on you, but that’s a Roman Legionnaire helmet, and they come with that brush on them.
That could be a tribune’s helmet’s crest.
This is absolutely fucking amazing.
Is that the literal translation of Kristuksen vittu?
Adding it to my list!
Christs Cunt is perfect translation.
or Cunt of Christ??
Well, “Christ’s Cunt” is the same thing as “Cunt of Christ”—both are possessive, but “Christ’s Cunt” can be said faster and with more anger.
So, Christ’s Cunt it is!
p.s. I’m so happy we’re bringing you and your wife to NYC! I’m looking forward to Petja Palooza!!
Mugsy Doodle; Did you see the video thanks
Petja, I’d forgotten about the video—and that you’d translated “vittu” as “cunt” before. I love that you did that for us! (“That” refers to both the video and the translation.)
Now, I have to go and buy a Petja USB drive. If it arrives in time for me to have it when we FJLs meet you, maybe you can autograph it for me?
My thanks video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z8-cYW4dZw&feature=g-upl&context=G2669745AUAAAAAAABAA
Mugs: True, but with the possible exception of hitting your hand with a hammer.
Then a vehement and well enunciated “Cunt of Christ!!” would DEFINITELY be apropos. ; )
Kyrpärysä will also work.
“Kyrpärysä will also work.”
Sure, easy for YOU to say!
Have you seen this. It is a new part of my of my site
@Mugsy: This does a surprisingly good job on the pronunciation (click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of the “Finnish” box). A bit clinical, of course, but one can always add emotion.
Not Kyrpä ryssä.
Why does Google Translate think “vittu” means “fuck” rather than “cunt?”
One of those is a verb, dammit!
Because it is made by someone kusirunkkari
Oh good grief, that site is hilarious. Look at all the snarky little explanatory texts.
One of the changes each day.
The second change every week.
The third is changed once a month.
Curse Shop for a limited time some of the products.
Fixed link for kyrpärysä. Sorry about that, the meaning is changed substantially: “ryssä” = Russian person (derogatory), “rysä” = fyke (picture).
I love that video so very much Petja.
I used to work for a Catholic Archdiocese, and go to know several nuns. I need to learn this phrase – perhaps as a greeting?
I’ve already been told by a nun that I’m going to hell, so I can say stuff like that without worrying about the consequences. It’s not like the worst isn’t already going to happen, right?
(I wiped the chalice and paten with the wrong dishtowel. Mortal sin, apparently. Forget murder, adultery – bad kitchen habits, that’s the biggie!)
Why would you worry about
without the ball intestines
happiness steal, or borrow
before long, you’re dead
I’ll post next week a new video curse.
You may submit a proposal on facebook, what word shown in the video.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Finnish-Curse-Center/185431414889669
@ Petja-Herra: I appreciate the sentiment, and thank you for the thought – it’s very nice My personal belief is that the positive or negative energy you generate in your life follows you to another plane of existence – but this is a conversation best to have with good music and good alcohol. If you’re ever in Tasmania, come say hi to me! I know a very friendly pub and some great musicians.
In re “Cunt of Christ” – it really does sound the perfect descriptor for one particular nun I met. I met other religious who were absolutely lovely; but when it comes to a woman of God who tried to force me into quitting my job when I’d just had a miscarriage and found out my father has an inoperable brain tumour, I’m a tad bitter.
I think that I once saw a nun in Finland.
Or I was drunk and so fucking big penguin.
@Dicere: I used to be Catholic (including 12 years of school) and the majority of the nuns I met where like the Hell Spawn you worked for.
When I was in college and working in a local 5&10, one of the lay teachers from my grammar school came in. She hadn’t been my teacher, but the school was small enough (fewer than 800) that everyone knew everyone. She was always a sweetie, but that day she went up on a gold pedestal in my heart: She told me that she always felt so bad for those of us who suffered with the hateful, attrocious (and she didn’t have to say un-Christianlike) behavior of the nuns who’d been there forever. Now, she said, the younger nuns are so loving and nice to the children.
I like your belief about good and bad energy. I’m not sure, anymore, if there is an afterlife, but that’s for me to deal with. For the time being, I focus on trying to put out a lot more good energy than bad into the world. Kharma’s a bitch and she could bite me while I’m alive!
I know of one Catholic. But I know a lot of people.
I think that the next winter, this is timely.
This is jumalattoman awesome
She did a custom Viking headpiece and the customer was overjoyed—said it was a huge it at the Vikings football game to which her husband proudly wore it.
Great piece, but I’m experiencing a major FJL “DUH” moment. Why does the post say “HATER”?? I must have missed something somewhere. Forgive me.
I think it means that April bought this (yesterday!) and knows we’re all drooling in jealousy, so “HATER” is a link to the page, showing that it was already purchased (so we FJLs can’t purchase it). Or maybe she’s gotten all ghetto on our asses. One or the other. Or both. Or neither. Damn. I’ve gone and confused myself again!
HAHAHA…Yeah, I think you’re are spot on! …and that seller specified NOT to purchase that listing…I recall reading something like that! Hah! HK getting all “ghetto on our asses”…LOL!!
That’s exactly what I was thinking. SHE got one and the rest of us will have to wait, right?
I’m going to need help figuring out what to get.
Haters gonna hate…but normally that hate is just sheer jealousy in disguise. So, I am a hater right now because I is so fucking jealous at this moment since I want one now.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
These things are awesome and you can get them all over the place now. A friend of mine has one from Snorg.
Snorg has individually custom-made crocheted-to-order beards? Yeah, no. They have this lame-ass mass-produced version for $45.
They have others. None are as good as the above and none is anywhere NEAR as awesome as this artist’s work.
Speaking of Snorg, does it make Bronc crazy to see that “Meh” tee ad?
Yeah…I don’t want a mass produced one. That’s not as cool as these, not anywhere close to these.
The massed-produced versions lack any dignity at all.
The customized ones featured here: GLORIOUS
my life long dream of becoming Hagar the Horrible can now come true!
My only problem with these is that I want them all and it’s probably really difficult to wear them all at the same time.
But it would be entertaining to try! (Entertaining for us! Please try!)
Obviously you must figure out how to grow a few more heads.
Yes. YES! I need one in “Barbie size.” Yeah…Barbie head size. Heh heh…heh
OMG MY LIFE – IT IS NOW COMPLETE.
I want every one of those.
There was an old man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!
Two owls and a hen,
Four larks and a wren
Have all built their nests in my beard!”
I suddenly have AN AWESOME NEW DESIGN IDEA for the seller!
THAT!! THAT RIGHT THERE is what I need to wear when I’m running the “Ragnar” leg of the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay!!! Not a plastic-made-in-China-cheap-ass-party-store-Viking-hat…THAT!!!! (Clicks away to mark as favorite)
Fucking Epic…and Toasty!
Lolz, just as I posted, I thought of a great poem by Shel Silverstein…
My beard grows to my toes
I never wears no clothes
I wraps my hair
Around my bare
And down the street I goes
Great minds think alike! When I refreshed the page I saw Dror’s hairy cuteness in an ad on the side and had a fleeting, wonderful fantasy of having one of these made extra-long and having Dror wear it. Yum…
Crap! Living in Florida sucks. Might be worth moving to Canada just to be able to buy one of these.
I live in FL, too and I think you could rock this anyway. It’s never too warm to dress as a viking.
And let’s be honest: Snow/cold/winter is pretty for the first 22 seconds. After that you freeze your nuggets off and you’re miserable.
The grey one is EPIC. I’m thinking of changing out my white Yak beard for this as St. Nicholas next December. With a mitre and cape it will be fierce.
I’M GOING TO NEED $65.
Oh my….Loki here, it’s amazeballs!!!!
I may rub myself Thor in my bunker thinking of this glorious fuckery.
I wonder if they Freyja easily?
Odin know, but I’ll be the seller could tell you…
Nothing to Tyr up over…just spray it with MidGard!
I dunno, MidGard works but it smells pretty bad. Anyone else in the house Valhalla at you.
It’s true…MidGard does smell like Asgard.
Baldur-dash, Midguard doesn’t smell that bad. I wonder if the seller could Sweden this deal with a Valkyrie hat. There’s Norway I’d pass that up.
I wonder how soon they could Finnish it.
I hope mine arrives Bifrost, or my ears will freeze!
I love you all so much.
There is a god and he blessed this crafter with a gift. A wonderful gift. Where is my credit card??
YUMPIN’ YIMINY! LOAD THE VOLVOS! MAN THE LONGBOATS! PASS THE LUTEFISK! WE SAIL FOR BALLARD!!!
I want one like this!
^THIS. I, too, want a Valkyrie helmet!
I’ve loved these long time. Never seen ‘em so CHEAP! ‘course, now the seller will be swamped and there’ll be a 4-month wait, and the price will double… Thanks, regretsy!
I fucking need one of these right now.
We all do.
Hey, speak for yourself.
OK…speaking for myself.
I NEED ONE OF THESE!!!
I need one for my FIL. We gave him a Viking hat several years ago.
Now, being a woman, I too have the rights to say “By my full and manly beard!” I’m so getting one of these
I want a Cheery Littlebottom!
(that’s what she said…)
Well, you know the dwarf elders will not be happy. Bad enough she’s wearing skirts, but now, to wear a fake beard? Blasphemy!
Nah, only a fake for ME…hers is still real.
(how does she keep her stache from scrubbing off her lipstick?)
Oops, forgot she hasn’t shaved it off. She is multitalented, keeping the stache AND her lipstick perfect. Sam Rimes hires only the best…except maybe for Fred and Nobby, but better to have them on the force where you know where they are then out in the world. (And Nobby is the last person who should have one of these beards. His species is hard enough to pin down as it is.)
Don’t forget Jewels (Jools). She had a fake beard. I wonder if it was ‘as soft as a very soft thing’?
Carrot could probably use one.
Mugsy – Sam Vimes didn’t hire Fred and Nobby. They’re relics of the Night Watch before he took over.
Would you actually WANT to pin Nobby’s species down? I don’t think it’d look that good in a velvet-backed display case, is all I’m saying.
If we could just get someone to knit us a Throne of Scone we’d be set! I can’t knit or I’d be making one already…
I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but I want my own Igor. I’ll take an Igorina. They’re equally talented. There are so many of them to go around. I would like one who’ll lisp once in a while, just for old time’s sake.
It’s always helpful to know where the packed bag is when the villagers with their torches come knocking and sometimes it does seem a little hot in here.
He’s human! He’s got the card to prove it!
Such a boon to female cosplayers.
HELEN/APRIL, ARE YOU BRINGING THIS TO NY IN MAY?
(YES I KNOW I AM SHOUTING!)
Seller has more listed! But for those who can’t afford the full beard:
Crocheted Viking Coffee Mug Cozy – $10
*Looks at photo of Viking coffee mug cozy. Looks at blah Wall Street Journal mug sitting on the drafty windowsill. Looks at window and hears wind whistling through crack. Remembers how drafty window cools off the coffee much too quickly. Looks back at photo. Clicks over to site*
She has a Cthulhu looking Dr Who monster & pirate pig cheaper too. I may make my first etsy purchase ever.
That’s an Ood. They’re friends of the Doctor. Sort of. In a strange way.
I hope she relists the Ood one because I soooo need that!
You’re in the mood for Ood?
Bought it. I’ll get a mustache ride with my coffee every day now!
FUS RO DAH!
I used to be a Fat Jealous Loser like you…then I took an arrow to the knee.
My wife will finally get me to wear a hat! I wonder if my giant noggin’ will result in an up-charge?
As soon as my hubby (who is of Scandinavian heritage and jokes about his Viking tendencies) agrees – and oh yes, he will agree – this is going to be his anniversary gift. Is the 3rd anniversary the “yarn Viking” anniversary?
It is now. And also the 19th (which is the one coming up for me)
All I knew was that the 15th wedding anniversary was the Metal Chicken anniversary.
I love The Bloggess too!
Heck, two of our anniversaries were china–as in replacing toilets. This is much better.
I seriously hugely love the viking hats.
I just bought her Ood hat. It must be mine.
Those are freakin’ awesome and I am insanely jealous that you are getting one.
I want one of these SOOOOO bad! all my LOTR fantasies are coming true! Now if I could only find a dude willing to wear elf ears. Ooooohhhhhh!
I want pictures!
I know I’m meant ot be laughing at this, but I can’t get over how freaking AWESOME it is!
This would be aperfect Halloween costume for people who live in places where it’s sometimes snowing by Halloween.
Now see – THIS is what it’s all about. You find a need and fill it. And who DOESN’T need one of these? Nobody, that’s who.
Also, the golden, braided beard is simply glorious.
Have you seen the Riders helm?
To die for!
Awesome. = )
This is freaking AWESOME! I’m only sorry I can’t get one for my hubby in time for Valentine’s Day!
If the Vikings had been wearing these while invading England – we’d all be speaking Swedish Chef.
But our cusswords would be a lot more entertaining.
After I bought the sparkling pig face mask, my husband gave me a look.
I wonder if he’d dare give a look to Rev. Blundering Redbeard 13 the Terrible, scourge of the living room.
When you’re done with that, can you come scourge my living room? The cat hair’s getting out of control again.
Just placed my order. Paid extra for the horns, because what use is a Viking dwarf helmet without horns? It won’t be ready in time for Valentines Day, but it will be sooooo worth the wait. Now The Almighty Caca (his official title) will have something to wear to contract negotiations!
He’s on the team that is negotiating our new contract in a few weeks. He just texted me: “Contract negotiations, I’m going to wear my Viking helmet and carry my shank. Prepare to get free shit!” Wonder if I can write off the cost of the helmet as a business expense?
God I hope you can get that helmet written off as a business expense!
Well, of course. As overhead.
I have to say, for all the loads of work and yarn that goes into that, $68 seems really cheap. I would’ve thought those worth over $100 just for labor alone.
That’s the base price, you need to discuss your custom order.
Still well worth it, I think.
Even still, the base is a lot of labor too. And she’s good at it. So I still think she could get away with charging more.
No argument from me.
By the beard of Odin, I NEED THIS!
This is just… WOW.
What makes it even more so for me today is the fact that today on the beach one of the bar runners came up to my mother, handed her his tray and pulled out a lighter on a retractable leash.
“…as I am Thor, god of lightning and thunder, it is my duty to light your fire” proceeds to light her cigarette rather efficiently, despite the sea breeze, “and remember,” letting go of the lighter, “Thor’s Hammer always returns.” as the lighter snaps back to his chest.
Then on with the “I’ll be here all week” one-liners. Try the Mahi-Mahi, it’s so nice, I had to name it twice…
TLDR, I know, but I had to share.
Dortha, the shop owner, is a sweetheart, and a total pleasure to deal with. She’s as awesome as her creations!
OMG! I need this so bad…I can’t grow a decent beard or moustache of my own…I should have looked to Etsy!
Now…do they also make crocheted armpit hair…cause that would really complete the ensemble!
THIS IS SO FUCKING AMAZING I WANT ONE FOR ME, MY SPOUSE, MY SON, MY M-I-L AND EVERYONE ON MY BLOCK!!!
Seriously. I am floored by how good these look.
Oh good fucking christ, I want this so badly
That is so awesome! I want one now!
Never before have I seen a beard I wanted to hug this badly.
Such an honor to be featured here today, thank you April! Thank you all so much for the great comments.
The eyebrows on the first one absolutely murder me.
Wonderful, wonderful stuff! You’re amazingly talented. Welcome to our little corner of the internet.
If only I lived somewhere that had an actual winter, this would be mine, and I would wear it everywhere, and I would be known as the Yarn Viking, and all would be as the prophesies foretold.
I’m a woman living in an area of Texas that had no winter this year. I am still going to spend the next several weeks trying to rationalize to my husband why I need one of these. If that doesn’t work I may secretly sell stuff so that I can buy it under the husband’s “logical purchase” radar.
As previously stated, it is never too warm to dress as a viking.
I find these things very unnerving.
Maskaphobia and/or Pogomophobia?
I want this so bad that I will probably misspell this post.
I want to wear it to the food coop and the post office and everywhere!!!
I fear that I may swallow my tongue since I could easily have a seizure because that is so awesome. Serious…serious…I need this. You can get it in blond or ginger. Whoever thought of this is a genius or a savant….BRAVO to you awesome crafter, I love you.
By Merlin’s Beard! I’ve been seeing more and more of these since Skyrim!
I know what everyone is getting for birthday gifts this year!
When it’s really cold I sometimes wear a ski mask. The last time I did, I got met at the door by security. Yep, they thought I was going to rob them. (Luckily my “OMG MY EYEBALLS ARE FREEZING!” confused them long enough for me to get to work.) I wonder how they’d react to one of these…
*rushes off to dig through her yarn stash*
OH MI GOSH I NEED ONE OF THESE FOR MY HUBBY.
I think I know that first guy.
My boyfriend bikes to work. He NEEDS this!
I want this for D&D night. And I will keep insisting I’m an Elf.
Is there some rule that these can only be photographed in front of a door? Maybe it’s some kind of fashion faux pas to do otherwise?
I need the crochet Pirate Piggy Hat for my next photography outing. The looks on people’s faces would be worth every friggin’ penny I would pay for that.
OH.MY.GAWD. I am often speechless at the things I see on Regretsy, but normally it’s speechless from fear or disgust. This…this is just fucking beautiful.
I know, right? I was halfway through the comments before I realized my chin was still resting on my chest.
I sure as hell want one of these… I don’t have the money but I got the yard and I can crochet! Don’t think it would look this cool, but dammit… I’ll have it!
Holy crap, the seller lives in a city like two hours from me!!! I should go visit. O_O
Your avatar, that comment, and the 0_0 made a mouthful of coffee go down the wrong pipe. If I drown, it’s your fault!
OMG I need to get one of these for my boyfriend!
THERE IS TOO MUCH WIN!
Much much too much win, so much win it hurts.
As a proud Norwegian, I approve of this and sorely wish I could afford one (or several).
I want a Centurion Helmet hat now! Only I don’t have the guts for the beard. Sad but true.
I need to work on my crochet skills. I WILL make one of these.
… I want one of these…
I was just teaching the kids about Sweyn Forkbeard. The lesson would’ve stuck better if I was wearing his face at the time…
Will have to order several for our future studies.
I fucking NEED this in my home. On me, my dogs, and my husband. Then I need a few more to stick on unsuspecting guests.
More bearded Viking crochet
Adolescent Bearded Viking embarrasses Superb Owl.
That’s it. I am now inspired to crochet my own Viking hat and beard. I’ve made beards before, but none as spectacular as a Viking.
Damnit, I just HAD to move from Northern California to Hawaii… in the wintertime, too!
By the power of Norway this is fucking awesome.
Brad, are you following me?
I did the same move last August. Upside: we can run around the island together as sweaty but mighty Vikings!
So…my brother and I had the AMAZING idea of getting one for us and our spouses and getting a family portrait done for our mom.
Nothing says love like your grown children rocking these amazing things in a professional portrait!
I so have to learn to crochet.
I am in the process of making several of these hats. Found a pattern on Ravelry (a site for knitters and crocheters) a few months back. Making them for my LARP and D&D friends Simply LOVE them!!
Found the website. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dwarven-battle-bonnet But I’m thinking the Etsy one looks cooler. Hmm I might have to change up the pattern a bit
I’m trying to draw up a fleece pattern, since I sew silly hats and can’t knit/crochet to save my life.
(I also convo’d her to see if she was still accepting orders, though, because I’m really too in awe to make my own without at least seeing if I can buy the original.)
Step 1: Buy one of these
Step 2: Register for Warrior Dash
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Die because your brain melted from running in one of these.
I must fucking own one of these! My Wow guild will be so jealous.
I’m thinking a Vrykul version…without a helmet.
I will be making the Magni Bronzebeard version…
And it would also double nicely as hat, ear muffs, scarf, AND coat! Love that.
this will be great for playoff season. the one I made out of green feathers two years ago doesn’t match my current hair colour.
Mine hoosbund, wearing the results of my artistic abilty about 10 Halloweens ago (because I never pass up the chance to humiliate the man I love):
All the hair is white, or near-white, now, and the “Viking hat” has long since rotted away, so we need one of these wonderful crocheted Viking hat-beards in deep auburn so we can relive our youth. Embarrassing grown children is just a bonus ability!
Great work (and you had a good model to work with). LOVE the fur cape. It’s an animal hide throw rug, isn’t it? I have one in sheep.
Thank you. He is cute, isn’t he? Luckily our kids take after him.
The cape was just a big hunk of fake fur fabric that was bought to go on our bed, but wasn’t quite big enough. So I cut it to shape, made Sculpey claws, and — yes!!! — HOT-GLUED them on.
The helmet is a straw hat with the brim cut off, fur from the cape-shaping, and horns made of styrofoam and paper mache. I was soooo proud of those horns. Then some poop told me that real Vikings didn’t have horns on their helmets. If that’s true, then where did they keep their mead?
OMG she does an Ood from Doctor Who!!!!!! Damn. Which do I need, citizenship application fee, or oood hat???
my husband and i produce an [uh.. the only] unnamed reality show about dudes with giant beards – and deal with fellows who look like this for real EVERY DAY. we’re also fat jealous losers, and over the goddamn moon that the regretsy community can see the difference between this and a mustache on a stick.
Holy Fuckballs, I need one of these to wear to The Hobbit.
*weeps into vodka with joyful anticipation*
In my mind I just roared “YES!” like Gimli does when Aragorn suggests they hunt some orcs.
“I was featured on Regretsy in a good way! Turn around time is now around 4 – 6 weeks. Thank you for your patience.”
Just in time for me to start saving up to buy one for the brief Brisbane winter…
I will be buying one for my norse-obsessed husband!
I cannot express the level of awesome these are!!! Hubs may be getting one for his birthday.
I’ve decided that my boyfriend is getting this for Christmas. Shopping done!
Legendary Craft’s new banner reads, “I was featured on Regretsy in a good way! Turnaround time is now 4-6 weeks. Thank you for your patience.”. Thanks Regretsy, for starting my Friday with a win (and not just a box of wine as usual). I would have posted a screen cap, but I am too technologically deficient in the brain pan to make that happen).
And apparently can’t type either. Please delete any randomly appearing parentheses.
These make me feel a NEED… a need for MEAD!
I thought I should show one I randomly made a while ago for a friend.
Yeah I did a crazy face.
Oh god, I want one in every. single. color.
EVERYONE OF THEM.
OH MY GOD I WISH I HAD THIS
MY HEART ACHES FOR IT
I WISH I HAD $65.00 TO SPEND ON THIS MAGNIFICENCE
