Festival weekend

You asked for a photo with my dreads in. I'm sorry to show a head not filled with dreads. I have to make more of them. The blurry photo below is shot with my phone in the bathroom but I hope you can see the back of the hair. The real hair is shoulder lenght.
This is my outfit for the thursday with the dreads. My fav Eva I Walla skirt a simple top, stripey tights and army boots (Invader). The short necklace is a raven claw grasping a marble. I look goofy on the other photos Johan took because he was making faces to make me laugh. 
Most were dressed down at the festival, wich made my simple outfit look dressed up, wich is dissapointing, would love to see more cool outfits.
Arkona was a nice surprise. The singer was very energetic and dramatic with her gestures and a whole wolf skin wrapped around her. She demanded people to make a moshpit in front of the stage and then played russian folk songs in Ska pace.
Friday was a migraine day, horrible, so I wasn't able to arrive until 8 pm to see Amorphis that were great. I love their melancholy tunes.
For saturday I styled my hair in 50's style with Ali's brooch as a hairpin. Johan bought a top hat at one of the stalls and they took photos for their Facebook page on us wearing hats. 
 Sabaton were great. They played a double set with all songs from Carolus Rex in Swedish with eight Carolus soldiers on stage. It was supposed to be a part from a play, but since the play based on the songs of that particular record were so popular they had to prolong it and therefore could only join with 8 soldiers from it and no acting. The second part was played with lots of fire and fireworks in the same style as every year.
One thing annoys me with this festival. There are so many different bands playing but I saw very few people from Falun (hometown). Those who were there all days was people from far away. Just one hour Sabaton played the normals entered with their baby carriages and kids and left directly after even if it was yet one more band to play. The good thing with this festival is that there haven't been a single fight or argue, everyone is happy and friendly.

  2. Gud, vad du är söt! Älskar dina ögon och bryn. ;) Och du passar jättebra i dreadsen. Och din snygga outfit. ^^ Men det låter som övrigt folk klädde sig lite tråkigt. Kul att banden var bra iallafall. :)

  3. Aww, Arkona :3 In Poland this band is well known and very well received (if we talk about neo-pagan and metalhead community, of course). Even I like their music, although I normally don't listen to metal.

    1. It's not much else to see here than metal bands or rockabilly, so it's easy to choose. If I want to listen to goth I have to go to Stockholm

  4. I love that skirt! Ah that is a shame, I like to see nicely dressed up people! I like to compliment them and steal outfit ideas!

    Oh I'd like to see the pictures of you and John wearing the hats!

    1. It's the same for me. Not many inspirational people to spot. But the steampunk festival we attended was good in that way that there were lots of fancy people.

  7. You looked lovely both days, the photo isn't goofy at all! ^^
    I like Arkona and I'm a fan of Amorphis. ^^ I've seen Sabaton perform live once, theywere quite entertaining.

    1. Thanks Magda :D. I have been a little worried that I posted to many photos of my garden last summer, so I have avoided garden posts this year. I'm very fond of plants that grow in southern europe so I try to use the warm spots to grow all those lovely vegetables and herbs you have.
