On the Set with VIKINGS! Check Out The Off Site Experience To Put Yourself In The Vikings Action! OMG! Epic!

Okay, so it’s Thursday of Comic Con and already I want to pass out and sleep for a week.

However, even with the humidity at insane levels, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a Viking for a day!

One of the things I was looking forward to most this year was checking out was the “On The Set with Vikings” and can I tell you… It was epic! EPIC!

First off, the coolest thing is that randomly, The Novel Strumpet and I were actually the first two people to go through the experience. I call that fate, good timing and luck.

I was in the hair and makeup chair getting Tattoos, blood and all kinds of Viking goodness. I mean, if you have the opportunity, get decked out!

Then it was off to a water battle at sea, with swords, shields, and everything you could want from a Viking battle.
