Vikings Cosplay Photoshoot

lagertha_fb-1

When you need ideas for your wife’s birthday and you’re a photographer, consider a photo shoot. Antti Karppinen and his wife are both big fans of History’s Vikings, and Karppinen told his wife more than once that she looked like Lagertha. So, for her 40th birthday, he decided to snag some Viking props and work with artist friends to craft a replica of Lagertha’s shield. He said:

Piece by piece we gathered up parts for the right look, convinced a make-up specialist Laura Puntila into the project to help to create the shieldmaiden –look, and my wife continued training the horse to be comfortable with the flashes and other distractions on the set. It took months to get everything together, but finally the day of the shoot arrived… and before you knew it, it was gone in a blur of flashes, smoke, grasslands and lakeshores.

The photo above is a result of the intensive project.

See more pictures from the shoot and some in progress costume pics at Karppinen’s website.
