WELCOME TO THE NORTH (viking collab!)

ok so at discord our lovely friend botbert gave us some kinda viking-ish doll suggestions, and as you know i am always here for viking stuff (#swede), so i thought hey! let's make a viking collab! (also this is my first collab i've started please be nice to me and maybe consider joining i don't wanna be here all alone.)

okay, so what kind of vikings am i looking for here? answer; all kinds!! it does not have to be a historically correct viking, i'm not gonna send these dolls to be shown at stockholm's new viking museum (which i btw haven't visited yet, i have to do that soon), so go crazy! it can be as much fantasy-ish as you want to, as long as the 'core' is vikings!! also stuff from the mythology, like maybe a valkyrie! or idk, some marvel-inspired sci-fi vikings! all vikings are welcome!

the base, you wonder! lex tell us what base we're gonna use! well, it kinda still is up to debate, but if you guys are fine with it i thought we could go for bri's halli base! well no one complained, so let's go for the halli base!


here's some examples on inspiration for you dolls;

  • the tv-series 'vikings' (that i still haven't cought up with ... gotta do that some day) - for a more historically correct viking look. if you wanna doll a viking that looks what a viking really looked like, this is for you.
  • the viking dress up from azalea's dolls - has tons of options, both some historically correct clothing, and some more made up ones.
  • the elder scrolls v: skyrim (i'm not big on video games, but boy do i love this one!!) - i mean, we all know the nords in skyrim are based on vikings. vikings + fantasy, can it be better???
  • the huldrefolk dress up from doll divine- under 'clothing' it has a tab with viking clothing!
  • eivør pálsdóttir - tròdlabùndin - something to listen to while dolling. c: suggested by blu
(i'll add more inspiration here if i remember some good ones.)

finished dolls;

Sounds great to me! I'll def need to improve my technique on face edits for that base though. xD

So I don't want to raise anyone's hopes, but I'm working on a thing for this and the base is just not buff enough and I'm going to spend 70% of the doll making it sufficiently buff.

Also to dash everyone's hopes immediately it's not Skyrim or Elder Scrolls themed. It's a different fantasy video game with fantasy Vikings.
