Welcome back to more of my wardrobe. I did buy a new winter coat this year. This one I found at TJ Maxx. It's an AvalancheSki Jacket with a hood, lots of pockets, a gaitor so the snow doesn't crawl up underneath, thumb holes to keep your sleeves in place, and it's heavyweight and warm. And I think it's a pretty color!

I did post a few weeks ago about Halloween Costume Prep this year and how we put everything together. It was probably the most work we've put into costumes since Bert and Mary Poppins (though the wig for the Beast was quite a project).
That post was already long, and I had a feeling the hair was going to be a project all on its own, so here we are! As I started writing, I was finishing up a breakfast of Lemon Blueberry Scones. I didn't want to start the actual hairstyling till I washed my hands!
First of all, I found a great resource at SweetHearts Hair, with this Quick and Easy Viking Hairstyle Tutorial. She is very easy to follow, straightforward, and interesting. If I actually did my hair, I would probably check here a lot for new ideas and tips.
My first challenge was that Lagertha has long, flowing, curly, blonde hair, and I have short, frizzy, brown and grey hair. To overcome that challenge, I bought a wig. This is one I found that looked fairly close to Lagaertha's color and waves.
