I had a request for a Viking helmet with a detachable beard. I got Rob to try it on so I could attach the sides of the beard in the right place:
Verdict: “warm, cosy and very very stylish. Especially if you’re a Viking”.
Incidentally, Vikings didn’t ever have horns on their helmets! According to wikipedia, this concept was an invention of 19th-century Romanticism, when Carl Doepler created horned helmets for the first Bayreuth Festival production of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen in 1876.
Very stylish model!
I think he might like one for Grahamstown next year !!!
This is awesome!
Soo cute! ( I like the hat too!) <3
ps. my son took one look and said “can I have one?” I will add it to the list. xx
Classy lad :-)
they didn’t have horns? I feel so disillusioned now…
I know, right? I just got to wondering about what kind of horns they would have used so looked it up….. now we know!
What ever would we do without our models? Love the hat, but ever so disillusioned about the horns. Thanks Carl!!!
