Step 1: Planning Makes Perfect
Before we get any farther let me clear up one common misconception.
VIKING HELMETS DID NOT HAVE HORNS
Horns were not on viking helmets, horns would have gotten in the way. imagine this, every time you bring your sword over your head you knock off your helmet, sounds like a good idea to get rid of this problem doesn't it. Horned helmets came from Opera not history.
Step 2: Suppplies
I chose a tunic pattern that looked enough like what I drew, then i bought enough fabric according to the back of the pattern package for how much fabric i would need. If you are just making one then you will need much less than what i have here, this is materials for 4 costumes.
The fur and leather will be used to make leggings, bracers, and other trim.
Step 3: Laing Out the Pattern
Step 4: Cut Is Out
Step 5: Sew It
Step 6: Finishing Touches
for the cloaks I used This Pattern
and for the cloak pin i used This Instructable
after that I cut the fur and fake leather to make leggings and bracers, I cant tell you how exactly to do this, because each one needs to be customized for each person.
I used the rest of the fur to make a fur mini cloak thing for the one costume without a cloak.
I used strips of scrap fabric to tie on the bracers leggings and the fur cloak ting.
For sword This Technique was quite effective.
Step 7: Go Forth and Pillage
Oh and remember pillage Before you burn.
