How it all began
Recently, my youngest daughter discovered the world of science fiction and fantasy festivals. She was very enthusiastic about the idea of cosplay – costume play, when you dress up as a favorite character from a TV series, movie or cartoon.
In order to encourage her, I said that I would also wear a costume to our first convention. Our first cosplay was bought from Aliexpress.
And my daughter saw that it was good. So she came to me and asks that I will make the Viking cosplay for next festival by myself.
At first, I thought "bummer"… I don’t have so much free time and prefer to save those rare minutes for crochet. Now I need to spend those moments for create the costume instead of crocheting.
And then I had a really brilliant idea.
I could CROCHET the whole costume!
And from that moment on it was only a pleasure.
