Birka 2015

Date: January 2015

Location: Manchester, NH

At this Birka, I entered the Queen's Garb Challenge at the fashion show. The challenge (by Her Royal Magesty Thyra) was "celestial". To meet this challenge, I was inspired by this illumination of the planetary system as described by Ptolemy.

For the challenge, I interpreted the illustration as this celestial cape. I won the top prize!
