Crown Championships of Cosplay: Lagertha Vikings Cosplay

Comic Con Paris winner and 3rd place winner overall LeelooKris Cosplay as Lagertha from Vikings.

Everything is handmade with authentic and traditional Vikings techniques and materials. The shield is made like real Viking shield in a traditional way, with raw wood (pine): it’s twelve boards for the base and two boards for the handle. The shield includes a real metal plate for the umbo hammered by hand to give shape as well as real rust and wrought iron nails. She used natural linen for more solidity and realism with the shirt. All the leather is hand-tooled with individual strips to hold together. The total work time on her cosplay: 504 hours.
