Valkyrie Helmet

The final piece to the Valkyrie wardrobe! This helmet is made of leather and plastic/resin for the wings. Wardrobe tape says "Xena." You can also see the complete valkyrie costume over in the completed costumes section.

Valkyrie Gauntlets

Another piece of the Valkyrie puzzle; here are a pair of lovely gauntlets. They are a stretchy mesh material with hard resiny/plastic "leaves" attached.

Valkyrie Boots-Grinhilda's Stuntie

I am getting very close to finally having a COMPLETE Valkyrie rider costume to go with my complete Valkyrie horse costume. Here is another piece of the puzzle, a pair of Valkyrie boots. These are marked "Grin Stunt" in each boot.

Valkyrie Skirt

Here is another piece of the puzzle I like to call "trying to get a complete Valkyrie wardrobe" LOL! This is the skirt. These skirts were made of a medium weight shimmery, slightly silky material with tiny resin pieces on the ends, probably for effect and to keep the material from unraveling. Pictured here on my mannequin torso with the elaborately made Valkyrie corset. Also pictured are the wardrobe hangers for the Grinhilda riding and stunt doubles; a great way to make a costume truly complete.

Valkyrie Corset

Here is a beautifully constructed corset worn by Odin's Valkyrie in the Xena Season Six trilogy including the episode "Return of the Valkyrie." There were a handful of Valkyrie, each wearing a corset, helmet, skirt, boots, gauntlets, etc. I only have the corset, but would love to find the other pieces to form a complete outfit. The wardrobe dept. did a great job in making these, note the detail and the lacing on the back. This was made of many different types of fabric and a plasticy resin type of material on the armor. Lovely!
