This is details from my national costume, called “bunad” in Norwegian. I won’t wear it tomorrow since we’re going away, so I thought it was a good idea to show some of it today. There are many different national costumes in Norway, all from different regions and areas. Mine is one of several from the valley of Gudbransdalen, which is the valley that starts just north of Lillehammer, the town i grew up in. My fathers family originally came from this valley too.
As a bonus, I’ll throw in a self portrait of myself taken on the 17th of May two years ago, so that you can see the whole thing. It is made of wool, has lots of embroideries and silver that belongs to it.
