Top Five Viking Costumes for Women

California Costumes Women's Viking Vixen Sexy Warrior Costume
J. Valentine Snow Viking Costume
They recently discovered that, contrary to myths about the rarity of Shield Maidens, most Viking raiding hordes were actually half women, probably married couples finding somewhere to settle. Pretty cool right? I think a great way to celebrate the horned-helmed warriors of old is for all you ladies to raid your local Halloween parties dressed in their traditional garb! This is my top five favorite Viking costumes for women 

First up, featured at the top of this page, is my number one favorite of these Viking beauties, the California Costumes Viking Vixen costume. I'm just completely in love with that amazing blue fur lined cape! Perfect for brief spells into the chill of the outdoors. Each set of this costume comes with the cute leather corset style dress, the wristcuffs and the horned helmet. If you like her sword and shield, you can find those here.

If that isn't enough faux fur for you, take a quick peek at the incredible J Valentine rave style grey costume on the right for a good dose of cuddly violence. Each set of this party-licious Shield Maiden costume comes with  the horned fluffy hat, a sexy tie-back top, the form-fitting waist cincher, matching skirt, cute legwarmers, and a pair of awesome fingerless gloves in the same style.

If you like more pastel colors, then above is an alternative club-style Viking costume that you might like, by Seeksmile Europe. Each costume set includes the slim waisted corset dress with mini-skirt, the furry Viking hat, the fluffy legwarmers and a matching pair of gloves. It's a very cute look that is sure to make you look phenomenal!

Moving back to more traditional styles of Shield Maiden  and female Viking costume, featured on the left is another wonderful short dress that is available in both the US and the UK. It comes with a lot of great accessories too, including ribbon boot tops, Viking headpiece, and matching forearm cuffs. Pretty cool!

Want a look that is a little more out of this world and breaks the mold in terms of colors? Well check out the cute purple Viking Valkyrie costume below. It's so pretty! Each set of this feminine and angelic costume comes with the armored style top, the matching skirt, the detachable lilac cape, a belt, a pair of gauntlets, a pair of shoulder guards, the winged headpiece and a pair of shin guards. That's everything you need!
