M, N, D and I had an adventure trying to get the Renaissance Faire yesterday. We started out by checking out a smaller festival that turned out to be a bit of a dud. Then, since we were all dressed up, we decided to go to the bigger fair that (luckily) was also happening this weekend. With a lot of getting lost, getting found, calling friends to look up directions and maddeningly slow people on country highways we made it to the Faire – about an hour before it closed. We still had fun though, wandering around, eating pickles and ice cream.
I love the feeling of being dressed up in costume and among so many others in costume. It is also really fun to people (or, perhaps, character) watch at the Faire. Sometime it would be interesting to go and take four or five pictures of different characters and then write a story based on them. Here's a picture of our costumes:
