Hi, S, These are really from the Nibelungenlied itself, Wagner's source, rather than the operas. In the Ring, Kriemhild is 'Gutrune', and in the N'lied, Brünnhilde isn't exactly a valkyrie. At any rate, they have a Rival Queens sort of confrontation over Siegfried's bier (suitable for sisters? Yeesh!). Stage costumes are somewhat beside the point, but surely they inspired some fancy-dress, right? I think the Bayreuth costume designs are pretty widely available if E would like to look at those.
