In order to convince you, I shall now share with you some pictures I took during today's venture to the Larkspur, Colorado Renaissance Festival
|This year I chose to go with the bar wench look instead of a Princess, |
you know, gotta switch some stuff up sometimes (costume made by yours truly)
|My Sister in her customary Pirate garb |
(bought at the same ren fest 4 years ago. except the bloomers. those I made)
|This Woman's full hoop skirt and silk dress is quite beautiful, but probably very hot, |
so I would recommend bringing a fan. unless you enjoy sweating.
|And of course, you can always purchase costumes at the fairs.|
|That is, of course, if you are willing to spend your entire pay check on something you'll wear, um, once.|
|This is Twig. She is a real fairy. She gave me a magic rock with fairy dust one it. |
And I like her wings.
|There is a certain style to wear antlers or animal ears. That is always an option. I am not one to judge (only at the renaissance festival. Every where else I get to be part of the fashion police.)|
|This young man opted more for a Victorian, slightly steam punk look, |
Complete with a magnifying glass thing-a-ma-jig on his glasses
|Cool shoes are a must.|
|This man is my favorite. I can't even describe how much he is my favorite. So I will just leave it at that.|
|The Ren Fest is one of the only situations in which the men have as many, if not more, clothing and accessory options as women. So guys (I mean gentlemen) live it up!|
I hope my friends that you inspired to go out there, find a costume, and go on an adventure at a Renaissance Festival. However, if I have not yet given you enough inspiration, here is a picture of the village idiot. Now you have to go.
Now that I have taken a nice reprieve from the modern world and spent a day as a bar wench eating turkey legs and flirting shamelessly with men in tights and chain male, I shall now return to the real world, content to live in the century into which I was born (like I had any choice...). It is pink dresses and heels on the morrow as usual.
