Koll - about the costume
Shirt is made from light, green fabric with some texture. It has a small button in front similar to the traditional Norwegian clothing. I wanted the shirt to be of a better and more elegant fabric than the rest, to give the sense of Koll not being poor but still working hard in the stables to help his father. Pants are made from denim like fabric in dark green and brown shades, and is held up by a belt that is not seen in the pictures.
The vest is made from thick, more coarse fabric with extra stiches at the top. Ring is a real golden ring and is one of the items that is just mentioned in a passage or so. I thought it would be a nice little detail to the costume. Belt from a second hand shop, shoes from Ecco, sword and shield from Hafrsfjordkaupangen (viking festival).
Maraius - about the costume

It is held up with a thin cord. Outer shirt is a asian inspired shirt with a crossover front. The shirts are fasten with a wide belt, also with brown machine embrodery.
