My flat mate Lisa in her national costume from her home county, Nordland. She has just finished the citizen's parade, and are enjoying the nice weather. She is a traditional folk dancer, and she danced her way along the parade with the other folk dancers.
National Costume (bunad) from Nordland County I can't believe Karen Hansen is so much like me. My home state is Idaho, My mother was born in Norway, I love Johnny Depp and Richard Gere. I want to be your friend. Norma Strother
Scandinavian Folk Costume *If not from a specific 'region', then it's called a "fest drakt" instead of bunad. Bunad is a very precise, time consuming (or expensive) endeavor, in intricate embroidery & hand stitch. It's from a small area where you and your mother (or father) lives/ed -- YOUR TRIBE ... Fest Drakt is simpler. the old ways of a frock.
