This homemade costume for babies entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Valerie, the 'Shield Maiden' costume creator:

My husband and I always loved Halloween, it was our favorite holiday of the year for us both. My daughter, Sybil Lynn Glass, has inspired us. We wanted her Halloween to be special, so each year we have made her costume. This year, she was a Viking Shield Maiden. Every detail of her costume was hand made. The leather vest was constructed from a full side of leather, roughly 9 feet. The pattern for the vest and skirt were of my own design, and the chainmaille was also made by hand. I spent almost a month cutting and weaving links. Her cowl is made from an authentic Icelandic sheep pelt, and her belt is adorned with a silver fox tail. This baby is ready to wage war!
