I work as a lolita designer for my brand Ergi by Piratessan part time and am a viking nerd full time, so, according to the current EGL aesthetic theme I decided to make a take on a new lolita style: Viking Lolita!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and support! <3



I designed my own print based on an original Viking stone carving, the Tjängvide image stone:



The motif is Odin riding on his horse Sleipner. At the waist and the bottom hem there are rune inscriptions. The text itself is not very creative though, it reads "Odin, Sleipnir, Lolita". (The spelling is very creative on the other hand, as you can see if you read Viking runes)





I coordinated the JSK with a matching bow, red OTK socks from Ergi, a simple handmade white linen blouse, offbrand scarf and a pair of vintage boots. The wig is from Gothic Lolita Wigs.

Also a pair of very fancy offbrand mittens, as it was -10°C when taking these photos... :S

The dress is decorated with a typical Viking style accessory, dress brooches connected with a strand of glass pearls. The brooches are detachable. Close up image:

Don't listen to snowwhite890911! It's a very beautiful, simple and elegant coordinate, and the self-made print is amazing! Good job! ^^

Love the JSK design - colours and print are gorgeous, subtle and elegant.
21st-Jan-2013 12:10 pm (UTC)
Such a great idea! I love the runes, they go so well together with the design of the dress!!!
I think some red hair accessories would complete the look.
You look really cute by the way^^

Thank you :) I will definitely consider some red hair accessories next time I wear this dress, good suggestion! :)

Love it ♥ I especially like the back of the dress, and the rune print being carried on through the ribbon ties.
21st-Jan-2013 12:18 pm (UTC)
I love the print, its awesome, and i think it looks really great in the co-ord, totally goes, in mt opinion!
21st-Jan-2013 12:18 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, best dress ever. I so want one. And the brooches just make it.
21st-Jan-2013 12:20 pm (UTC)
I really love the JSk and your boots, but it would have been more cute with a fauxfur hat and no ponytails, just wavy blond hair in my opinion ^^
21st-Jan-2013 02:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the comment! I wanted to show the bow I made in the photos, but a faux fur hat and no ponytails sounds like a great idea as well. :)

I would give you all my pennies for that dress. It's amazing.
21st-Jan-2013 12:27 pm (UTC)
That dress is amazeballs. I love off the wall ideas for prints. I'd totally get into viking lolita.
21st-Jan-2013 12:32 pm (UTC)
This is gorgeous! Can't wait till it's released~
21st-Jan-2013 12:46 pm (UTC)
Aaah, that dress is amazing!
21st-Jan-2013 12:47 pm (UTC)
I would buy the dress if it was any color but this. I think it would look much better with wine shirt and not hime pigtails. But overall its really great and I'm looking forward more designs of yours!
21st-Jan-2013 02:08 pm (UTC)
I will release the dress in bordeaux and perhaps also a white version as well. :)

fuuuuuuu vikings ( 0 3 0) Are there any colourways like moss green or lush reds? I think the glass beads sorta look polished, should look nice if there's a bit of runes :D Just saying ^^;

I can imagine myself wearing a black sweater, that jsk, and leather sling bag and lace up boots. And fake fur cape hehehe
21st-Jan-2013 01:49 pm (UTC)
+1 for the colourways.

I did think the glass beads were a bit distracting in all of those colours, but I was so happy with the rest of it I didn't mind.
21st-Jan-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
That is amazing!
21st-Jan-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
Usually I dislike this kind of themed lolita, but imo you've pulled it off - it looks very tasteful in grey, and very well made. Nicely done!
21st-Jan-2013 01:26 pm (UTC)
That dress is wonderful.
21st-Jan-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
You are my HERO!

I am fascinated by the nordic mythology, so seeing your photo made my heart skip. Excellent, thank you. *_*
21st-Jan-2013 02:10 pm (UTC)
Ohhh *__* Thank you! <3
21st-Jan-2013 01:42 pm (UTC)
Wow, this whole set looks amazing. I love the wig and how blond it is. It fits well with the viking theme and gives you the Scandinavian touch. I also love the boots and mittens! Also the dress OH THE DRESS, I just love it and need it in my life. Are you planning to make some for sale (pretty please)?
21st-Jan-2013 02:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, it will be for sale starting next week. ^__^ (Though I don't think I'm allowed to post links here?)
21st-Jan-2013 01:42 pm (UTC)
That is amazing, so creative and clever! I particularly love the brooch.
I would love to own that dress. grey is such an underused colour and I love it!
21st-Jan-2013 02:09 pm (UTC)
Wow, I love that dress! It is beautiful! I love how you put runes on the waistband, and the brooches and the pearls look awesome! You could totally make a whole Viking-Lolita collection like this. I like the wig a lot with your coord, too.
I would have worn a burgundy blouse to match the tights, maybe.. Part of me want to think a leather/fur-capelet (to match the boots) with a hood of some kind would look awesome, but I'm less sure about that.

I kind of really want a dress just like yours Q.Q
21st-Jan-2013 02:28 pm (UTC)
I adore the dress and the coord is super cute **
21st-Jan-2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
I love that you used the traditional style fasteners for the top of the dress. It takes it above all the other "generic medieval print" lolita dresses coming out as of late. And I personally love the glass beads. They are a great mix of period accuracy and lolita bling. I will definitely be ordering it.

(Also, I'm not sure if you remember me or not, but I'm the girl who ordered a black pirate jacket in the US t from you that got lost in the mail. It turned out it was delivered to my neighbors and they returned it a few months afterwards, when they opened it and realized it wasn't anything they could sell or use. >_< But I got it back, and wear it as much as possible! )
21st-Jan-2013 03:31 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad to hear that it arrived in the end! (Yes of course I remember you ^__^)
Thank you for the lovely comment and for supporting my business <3

Amazing! I love it!
