-insert snappy description here, please-
Huldra is a creature from Scandinavian folklore. I guess she could be compared to some kind of vicious forest fairy.

While she is usually described as a beautiful dairymaid with a cow's tail in Norwegian lore, I went for a more trollish creature that lives in the woods and doesn't comb her hair.

The costume consist of a top, skirt, corset and a crown made from birch-branches. I also have a tail, but it disappears in the skirt. For the top I used Danielle #9306 from Burda Style, the corset was made from the linked tutorial - entirely by hand because I was sick and couldn't stand the noise from my beloved sewing machine. My skirt consists of scrap fabric left over from almost every project I've done the last two years.

I even won a costume contest, so I'm pretty pleased with the costume!
