If you like Nordic culture and cosplay and want to combine the two by wearing a Viking cosplay, Drakka has an impressive collection of Viking cosplay for you to choose from.
It is commonly known that Viking warriors adapted their clothing to suit the cold climate of their region. In comparison to northern Europe, Scandinavia experienced mild summers and harsh winters, prompting Vikings to dress in layers to retain warmth. The harsh and freezing oceanic conditions during lengthy travels necessitated clothing that could withstand such elements, a fact that ancient Norse warriors had to cope with.
Undoubtedly, the Viking warrior's ability to move freely was the second-most important aspect of his attire. Improper attire in battle would have placed a heavy burden on any warrior. The Vikings' solution involved loose-fitting, uncomplicated clothing that facilitated free movement without hampering their combat effectiveness.
Footwear, pants, shirts or tunics, and cloaks are examples of staple items in a Viking warrior's attire. Manufacturers created shirts, tunics, and pants for warmth retention. In addition, they kept the designs simple and roomy, which allowed for daily activities.
If you're seeking a realistic Viking Age-inspired outfit, Drakka has everything necessary to create a lasting impression at parties, LARPs, conventions, comic cons, plays, or any other event.
