Ice skating – inspiration

As you might have guess, my main reason for making the fur hat was not to prance it around in my appartment – But to go ice skating in it.

The 19th century group comes togeter every january for some historical ice-skating in the capital, and I had made planes on going.
I didn’t had time to make a whole new outfit, but some accessories to spruce up an old costume was just the right amount of work for the in between christmas nights.
