Ever since María Olafs won Iceland’s Eurovision selection, our dear readers have compared her costume to a potato sack and threadbare nightgown. We are pleased to confirm that those days — and threads — are gone!

Speaking to visir.isMaría has revealed that her dress is being made by the designer Sunna Dögg Ásgeirsdóttir, who happens to be the sister of Ásgeir Orri and Pálmi, two of the StopWaitGo trio, who composed Unbroken”. Let’s keep it in the family, y’all!

“The dress will be pink and golden,” says María, adding that Sunna also designed the dress María wore on the final night in Iceland. “She’s making all my dresses. Appearantly I’ll need two sets per day.”

You can warm up your Emmelie de Forest jokes: “I will also be going barefoot on stage. I find myself so much more steady. Some more dance moves have been added to the act, so being on my toes is just so comfortable.”

On top of all that, Sunna has designed a special bracelet for María, and that bracelet will be sold in chosen jewelry stores in Iceland.

María seems to be a tad superstitious. She will perform in the second semi final, and that made her stop and think because Iceland has, in most cases, performed in the first semi finals. “But we’ll give it all and do our very best,” she says.

María’s entourage: Hera Björk and Selma

As we previously reported, María won’t be going solo on stage in Vienna. Eurovision star Hera Björk will provide backing vocals, and serve as her vocal coach. Hera, of course, lives in Chile, so much of their work is taking place through Skype.

But Iceland won’t stop at one former ESC diva. María’s entourage will also include Eurovision 1999 runner-up Selma, who will serve as her choreographer in Vienna. “It’ll be good to have them both with me,” María says. “I just wonder if the Eurovision society will go crazy when they both show up.”

For the first time in a long time, the Icelandic group did a little promo, and performed at the Russian pre-party this week. María dazzled with her down to earth appearance and her trademark dimples. No doubt she will do the same in Vienna.

Selma has a terrible choreography in 2005 which basically destroyed any chances for her to qualify even that song was good (and top 10 on betting odds). So who knows how this will look like in Vienna.

I hope Hera doesn’t live anywhere near the volcano that just erupted in Chile, and that her flight to Vienna won’t be delayed or cancelled

Good luck to Iceland. The last Nordic country to not have won ESC.
