What does Costumekullan mean?

My name is Johanna and I am a costumer and cosplayer from the region of Dalarna in Sweden. The dialectal word for girl in Dalarna is "kulla", and I've used variations of "xxx-kullan" online since I was in school.

I started to be serious with costuming when I met other Star Wars fans showed me that you didn't just have to admire costumes on screen, you could make your own. I am a member of the Nordic Legions, which is the cooperation name for 501st Legion: Nordic Garrison and Rebel Legion: Nordic Base, but in the last years I've also done projects from other fandoms.

When it comes to historical costumes my main focus is the 16th and 18th centuries.  For my 16th century wardrobe I'm trying to recreate a wardrobe that would have been worn in Sweden in the first half of the 16th century, for my 18th century wardrobe I just love to wear pretty things. I do dabble in other eras from time to time as well.

If you read Swedish I also recommend my blog Historiekullan - where I talk about all kinds of things related to the 15th and 16th centuries.
