How To Make a Homemade Viking Costume: Ideas and Instructions

Updated on December 15, 2014

Make Fabulous Viking Costumes the Easy Way!

Welcome to the site where you can learn how to make a Viking costume! Your homemade Viking costume will be the envy of any party you decide to crash and plunder. Making homemade Viking costumes isn't that hard and can be done without a sewing machine. It's the kind of costume that's especially good for large groups. Additionally, you can limit the cost of your Viking costume by carefully choosing materials and accessories.

Making the Viking Costume Vest: Used Is Best

The best way to make the homemade Viking vest is by

  1. Using an old suede jacket, fur, or faux-fur coat you own that is no longer regularly wearable, or
  2. Purchasing a used suede, fur or faux-fur coat.

You can find excellent, inexpensive specimens at your local Goodwill/thrift store or on eBay. Once the coat is in your possession, turn it inside out and remove the sleeves by cutting the seams with scissors or a special thread-cutter (available at craft stores). If the jacket is lined, you'll have to remove the lining of the sleeve before you can remove the outer sleeve. If that's too much work, you can always simply cut the sleeves off. The vest only has to last for one night, after all!

A furred vest can usually stand on its own. To make a leather or suede jacket more interesting, use hot glue or a sewing machine to attach craft-store and thrift-store finds such as metal braided wire, shiny bits of metal, or additional bits of fur or leather.

While you're at the thrift store, keep your eye out for interesting jewelry, belts, scarves that can be used as belts, and even helmets or plastic axes. You'll be amazed at what you can find!

What To Wear Under the Vest? Anything?

If you're really bold (or if your vest closes all the way), then you won't need to wear anything under your Viking costume vest. If you do want to wear something, it's easy enough to create a simple covering. The easiest thing to do is to wear a dark brown t-shirt. Another easy way to cover your chest is what we did here: we purchases inexpensive brown fleece blankets from Walmart (they were cheaper than the same yardage of brown fleece at the craft store, though that would work too). Then we folded them in half and cut a small hole for the head to create brown ponchos. Once you cover them with a vest and tie off with a belt or scarf, you won't even be able to tell it's not a real shirt!

Wrapping the Leg Coverings with Strips of Leather/Faux Leather

Homemade Viking Costume Calf Wraps

To make the wrist and calf bands, measure and cut a trapezoid of faux-fur fabric (make sure to keep the calf bands loose, so that they can be put on easily). Turn the fabric fur-side in, then sew or hot-glue down the matching trapezoidal sides. Turn inside out, so fur is on the outside, and slip on!

Above is a close-up picture of the faux-fur leg wraps. I made long strips out of the leftovers from the cut-up leather jackets (with a little bit of sewing), and these were wrapped around the leg coverings in a criss-cross pattern for a little extra flair.

Faux Fur is Your Friend: You can use faux fur for all manner of accents, from bands that go around the wrists and calves to a cape—your budget is the only limit! Save money by using faux-fur only as an accent or by finding faux-fur items in a thrift store and recycling them.

You'll Also Need Some Faux Leather Fabric (Brown Fleece Works In a Pinch)

You can use faux-leather fabric to make an easy wrapped faux-leather Viking skirt for girls, or to sew or hot-glue onto an old pair of pants for a guy's Viking costume (if you don't have any suede or leather pants, or pants that look vaguely like leather). Alternately, there are tons of great fabrics out there in shades of brown that look close enough. If you're extra adventurous, and haven't done the vest part yet, you can make your own homemade Viking vests out of this fabric as well.

Save the remainders from this fabric to cut into inch-wide bands to use as wraps around the faux-fur coverings on your lower legs.

Viking Costume Shoes (Unless You Want Bare Feet!)

I wouldn't suggest buying new shoes for a homemade Viking costume unless you really want to. Any brown, black or tan men's or women's boots should do the trick. If you absolutely can't find anything, try draping some leftover fabric over your shoes to disguise them.

If you do decide to purchase boots, choose a pair made of material that resembles fur or leather. Make sure that it will suit your activity—whether that be watching Halloween movies, trick-or-treating, or dancing the night away.

Time For a Break! Here's Some Research Material

Ann S. Says:

"Thank you for all these tips! I looked around my house and found almost everything I need to put together a Viking costume for my 7 year old son! He's going to wear my faux fur vest wrapped up with braided belt... He has a cool nordic looking necklace and a sword to stick inside the belt. He's VERY excited and so am I!"

Nothing Like a Little Viking Bling - Find Some Kick-Butt Jewelry!

It's hard to find jewelry that is truly "Viking" without taking a trip to an ancient Norse tourist attraction. However, Celtic jewelry is popular; alternately, anything in bronze, silver, or black will do to add that extra oomph to your homemade Viking costume. Chances are you already own some jewelry that will work. Men can get in on the jewelry action too—remember, Vikings used to wear their wealth, and they never had to worry about how manly they looked! Don't go overboard with Viking-themed jewelry, but necklaces, earrings, and armbands are nice.

Speaking about bling, you'll never guess how we made the "crowns" for the women! This is where real costume-making ingenuity comes in. We went to the hardware store and looked at the different types of plumbing fittings. They had different types of round strips of metal, and we found ones that would fit around our heads (they were only a few dollars each). Then, we simply had to remove a bracket that held the rings together and then wrap some leftover fabric around the joint. Voila! Stylish metal headbands without a lot of cost or work. Not something you'd want to wear every day, but fine for one night.

If you're going to dress as a Viking, why not get a piece of jewelry that you'll want to wear even after Halloween? This runic pendant not only looks awesome, but it also grants you invincibility in battle. How about wearing that to your next exam?

 

Female Viking Costume Hair and Makeup - Do You Need Anything Special?

Sexy Viking Costume
Sexy Viking Costume

Here's my gorgeous sister in part of her Viking costume get-up. We used minimal makeup, a little bit of eyeshadow and mascara. After all, a hard-working Valkyrie doesn't have a lot of time to spend primping and preening. Although, she still wants to look her best when she goes pillaging!

If you can manage it, a braid or two are always best for your Viking costume hairdo. A ringlet, helmet, or crown will add that little extra pizzazz.

Male Costume Hair and Makeup: The Beardier the Better!

If you're a guy planning on dressing up as a Viking, you really ought to plan on growing some facial hair. Seriously; do you really picture the Vikings as smooth-shaven, or do you picture them with awesome beards?

If you're not the type of person who can grow a beard fit for a Viking in a couple of weeks, or if you just don't think that a Viking beard will fit in with your current lifestyle, you can always purchase one.

One note of caution: real or fake beards can be extremely warm and itchy! Don't say that we didn't warn you! However, the irritation can help you develop a characteristic surly Viking attitude.

Choose Your Weapon!

War Hammer

With the recent resurgence in popularity of Thor, the hammer (or Mjölwernnrlnrrnwjur, as he likes to call it... or something) is one of the most-desired Viking costume weapons.

The Sword We Used: Plastic King's Sword

Viking Costume Sword
Viking Costume Sword

If you're looking to create a historically accurate Viking costume, you might want to try producing a Viking weapon out of cardboard and tape, or even wood and metal if you want to get really fancy. However, we found that a plastic sword had a great combination of durability and cheapness for our needs (the cardboard shields we created disintegrated quickly). Again, it all depends on how much time you want to spend on each individual part of the costume.

The Viking Belt

Any sort of black or brown leather belt will work; even a leftover piece of fabric will do. This part of the Viking costume is very important, as it makes your homemade Viking vest look more like a vest and less like a leather coat with the sleeves cut off.

However, you will definitely get bonus points for your homemade Viking costume if you have a belt with any sort of embellishment or designs. You want to look like you're the toughest Viking on the block, don't you?

Don't forget when purchasing the belt that you'll need a larger size than you usually use. After all, it needs to go over your vest, which will add several inches to the required length.

Time to Enter the Viking Fray: Horns or No Horns? - Do Battle Here!

Image by Emily on Flickr.

There's been some debate as to whether people should wear horned helmets with Viking costumes, because it's not technically historically accurate. Shout your opinion here! Anyone can have a say (you don't need to be logged in).

Did Vikings actually wear helmets like these into battle? According to this article from The Straight Dope, they most certainly didn't! However, the "horned helmet" has become the most recognizable symbol of the Vikings, despite this inaccuracy. It's up to you whether you want to be faithful to history or take a little creative license.

Alternately, a metal band wrapped with a bit of leather or brown fabric works as a Viking costume "crown" for women. I actually bought some type of plumbing equipment shaped like a metal circle and bent it to fit my head.

In a pinch, you can build a Viking crown out of cardboard and shiny silver duct tape. Decorate it with odds and ends from the craft store.

Is it appropriate to wear a horned helmet with your Viking costume?

No way! Real Viking warriors would know better.

      why wear a horn when you can drink from it .... when i see someone with horns on the helmet the automatic reactions is laughter and point and say "that must be an American!!!"

    • Anonymous 23 months ago

      Horns should be used for drinking not helmet decoration

    • MegzWills 2 years ago

      Nope

    • anonymous 2 years ago

      Also, the Norse god Thor had a WINGED helm. So that could have been mistaken for horns. Now stop being total idiots.

    • anonymous 2 years ago

      The only reason it was said Vikings had horns on their helms was because of stupid Christian propaganda so as to make Vikings seem more evil, pagan, and satanic than they truly were. Also, I'm a defendant from Ragnar Lodbrok and Ivar the Boneless. I would take it as an insult if I saw someone trying to pass as a Viking with a horned helm.

    • anonymous 2 years ago

      naaa.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Nobody would have ever worn a horned helmet into battle. It would have either gotten knocked real fast or it wouldn't have gotten knocked off and the warrior would have gotten a broken neck from a ten pound broad sword!

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      THEY DID NOT HAVE HORNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know i'm a kid and it's true they didn't have

      horns on their helmets

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      be authentic,otherwise why try?

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Well technically since Viking is a verb, not a noun a Viking would not wear anything. LOL

    • Tony Bonura 4 years ago from Tickfaw, Louisiana

      I don't really care for Vikings, at least not the Minnesota football team. I'm a Saints fan. Besides, I missed that question in the quiz. I thought they did wear horned helmets to add to their fierce appearance.

      TonyB

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Depends if you want to look battle like or festive like.Battlers wouldn't wear horns to bulky and a possible handle for the enemy.For festivities, horns or wings would look ornate.For the halloween helmet since it doesn't really look ornate go with the bald helm.

    • Mistl 5 years ago

      Authentic all the way, horns would never work in real battle!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Hell no. Imma be a real viking, an authentic cone

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      If you are expending the effort on the costume already, try to make it as factually accurate as possible. Skip the horns and wear a Thor hammer pendant or something.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Real Vikings didn't wear them, why should you

    Yes! It looks sweet, and people know you're a Viking.

        I've heard that the horned helmet wasn't worn in battle, for obvious reasons of impracticality, but at formal occasions where intimidation was an advantage they were worn by those of high rank.. or those tough enough to discourage others from directing attention to it. If its for holloween or a party, do what makes you happy. if it's a ren fair, go without horns. seeing as there are no ren fairs about my person, im wearing horns. :)

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        Yes they did

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        It looks BOSS!!!!!

      • pillarcandles 4 years ago

        Yes Of course!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        Yes, while not historically accurate horned helmets are sweet. Now if you are going to a ren faire or something, then you'd want to roll sans horns for accuracy

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        I'm an opera singing kind of Viking lady and we always wear helmets!

      • anonymous 4 years ago

        for those special plundering holidays

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        horns do look a bit fretnig

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        They wore them on ceremonious occasions. So yeah, I'm going horns.

      • norma-holt 5 years ago

        I think Vikings did wear horned helmets because they have been found in their luggage. Besides we have come to accept it as fact.

      • goldenrulecomics 5 years ago

        Why not wear one? Whether it's inaccurate or not a helmet is pretty cool.

      • aakashparmar 5 years ago

        its better than normal wearings....:)

      • LeCordonDude 5 years ago

        Hellz Yeah! Horned Helmets Rock \m/

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        duh

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I have a really cool horned helmet and will wear it this Halloween.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Yes. Why? Because even though it's not historically accurate, that's how most people know Vikings. We're not going for historical accuracy - we're going for recognizable and badass.

      • sousababy 5 years ago

        Well, the cartoons all showed the horned helmet . . so I say go for it. The kids will 'get it.'

      • Julianne Gentile 5 years ago from Cleveland, Ohio, US

        sure, have fun with it

      • emmaklarkins 5 years ago

        As long as you're not doing a reenactment, I think a horned helmet is okay!

          My teen just did a double birthday party with some friends in the park. They brought nerf swords, shields, daggers, you name it, and played three versions of Zombie tag. It is summer and it rains a lot, and due to rain, they joked about switching to "Vikings". We watched from the dugout, and they got pretty muddy. Also third round of capture the flag was in the woods, more cover. It was a success and thought up by the kids. My kids also make costumes of video game characters. I am not sure to say I am proud to say my son is the owner of is own made wooden 5ft 8 inch long sword built onto his hockey blade.

My friend once hosted a halloween party where only guests in home-made costumes were welcomed to attend and she strictly enforced her "home-made costume dress code." I am going to forward her your lens, she would most definitely love to dress up in home-made viking costume.

          This was such a great post! So helpful, detailed, and well written. By FAR the best how-to costume post I've found online! Thank you and well done. I'm so excited to go buy material tomorrow to make this costume.

          Thanks!

          Maybe a little (fake) blood on your weapons.

          Nice lens.

          A homemade Viking costume is definitely a fantastic idea and the costumes you made look gorgeous! The kind of costumes that people absolutely need to see and get inspiration from.

          I love the ideas! My middle son loves Vikings & would love to make the Viking helmet! Blessed and liked.

          What a fun lens! I really enjoyed it. Especially liked the "Here's Our Motley Viking Crew" photo. :)

          My girlfriend and I love having costume themed parties, we once did a Space Viking costume party where I made a laser gun/battle ax. Awesome lens, keep up the great work!

          I'm not sure what's "viking" about any of it. Generic fantasy barbarian, perhaps. Viking, no.

          Looks like fun, but I'm not really into looking like a Viking anyhow. I do know more than I thought I did about them though. So skoal, y'all.

          So much better than buying one of those slutty "viking" (if you may call them such) costumes.
