You’ve been told that it’s not what’s on the outside that counts, but the inside. A beautiful lady in all her elegant skirts and jewelry is only as lovely as her personality. Despite her beauty, she could truly be a rotten core, putrid and a blemish on society.
As you consider yourself and your Astrid Dress in the mirror, you know it is not the most beautiful garment or the most impressive--but it’s sturdy, it’s colorful, and it’s yours. And most important of all, it’s only the outside coverings for a warrior at heart.
Epic Armoury's Dress Astrid is a scandinavian inspired slip-on dress with long bell sleeves. The V-cut neckline, wrists, and skirt are trimmed with a contrasting brown ribbon. Made from durable, medium canvas cotton, this dress reaches from the shoulders to the ankles and has a comfortably wide red and brown gusseted skirt to allow for easy movement.
The Dress Astrid is a great start to a special Stalwart costume. Pair it with the Shift Astrid and a belt for a complete period look, equally perfect for a shieldmaiden or merchant.
Available in sizes Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and 2XL/3XL; and in colours Red/Brown, Dryad/Beige, and Azure/Brown.
You tighten your Ring Belt another notch, frowning at the watered-down soup over the fire. It’s been a long winter, and you and your family aren’t sure you’re going to have enough food. As you consider ways you might be able to afford some meat--maybe you can do some work for a merchant in town?--there’s an anxious knock on the door.
“Raiders!” shouts the messenger on your doorstep. “Raiders are coming! Every able person is being called to fight!”
Suddenly an empty belly is the least of your worries.
Fend of Ragnar and his pet priest with a good poking.
You admire the Viking Spear that belonged to your father. The great warrior sailed his last voyage, but your brethren still managed to bring back his weapon specially for you. For that, at least, you are grateful.
Looking down upon the sharpened, freshly cleaned steel, you wonder what this spear has seen. Carried on countless travels, this spear may have shed blood raiding the English coast, been tarnished under the sun of Spain, and used in defense of Miklagard.
One day you will add to its story.
Epic Armoury’s Viking Spear is a 190 cm latex spear with a long, leaf-shaped ridged spearhead. Handpainted and sculpted to give it a realistic look, the Viking Spear’s 40 cm spearhead appears to be attached to a long pole with metal bolts. A crossguard is attached to the head to protect your grip along the dark wood-coloured pole, while a matching metal pommel can be used to strike unsuspecting opponents when the spearhead is busy.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
A form of the spear has been used for hunting for at least 400,000 years
Spears were the most common form of weaponry during the Stone Age, and remained popular until firearms were introduced
