Traveling in Ireland part. 4

In Ireland, I had to go and test the local night life, of course.
I love pubs! We went to see Irish football, which is really strange because they run the ball in hands! Well, the game was Dublin vs Mayo, it seemed to be very important game to the local people. I naturally encouraged another team Mayo :'D

I met a lot of new people, some of them end up being my Facebook friends.

When you have been drinking too much whiskey and Guinness, you go to the Leprechaun Museum in a horrible hangover. I certainly made a good impression on people.

I went to see the dead bodies to the Irish National Museum. 94 copy
And some really old gold jewelery

I believe Game of Thrones has copied these jewels to the series like hand of the king brooch.

These zombies remind people horror of the great hunger. a Similar kind of suffering started in Finland a few years later.

In some areas, Ireland is very far behind. It's about the abortion, which is not allowed in Ireland. If you get raped, you will have to give birth to a rapist kid.
Irish women travel to England to do the abortion.
I took this picture of a protest where all abortion deniers were men!!

All right, that's about it, all of my travelings in Ireland ^^
One day I'll be there again, that's for sure.
Flying there is fast and cheap. The flight takes about three hours and costs just over a hundred

Xena, The Warrior Princess

"In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power...the passion...the danger. Her courage will change the world."
Xena was my favorite TV show when I was a kid. I wanted to make a Xena cosplay for a long time, but I did not know how to do it.
I participated in this year's Ropecon worbla workshop, where I got some tips on how to make a chest armor. So, this is my very first worbla armor!
Skirt, corset and shoes are made of genuine leather. Armory is made of worbla, it is painted with acrylic paint. The sword and the chakram is made of wood and worbla. The scabbard has been made of gym mattress, so it's lightweight to carry.
I bought some old leather jackets from the flea markets, which the clothes were made.
This project took a lot of time and money, and it was definitely worth it. I loved to make this wonderful project. It is not perfect, but I managed to overcome the expectations.
So, Why I like Xena so much?
First, Xena is a human being. No super hero shit, where heroes arrive from outer space and possess supernatural talents.
Xena knows her own worth and doesn’t compare herself to others. Xena has many skills, she knows how to solve situations well.
Her fighting skills are unparalleled. She does well without men.
Xena is my idol :)
While making this project, I watched all the Xena productions through^^

The leather corset without the armor. I made the patterns of course by myself.

Traveling in Ireland part. 3

One day, Me and my friend Heikki, took a train to the Kilkenny. In the train was an old lady, who told us the story of her whole life. It was awesome!
I wrote postcards to all my friends^^
So, we went to look a fully restored castle, and the Kilkennys beer brewery.
The landscape is spectacular! :)

Me and Heikki walked to the cliffs of Howth. I would really like to see cliffs of Moher, but they were too far away...
Next time in Ireland, I will see them for sure!
I'm so jealous of these Irish magnificent views. Why is Finland so boring?
