Renaissance Romp!

The Renaissance Pleasure fair will always hold a place near and dear to my heart. It was where I experienced my very first dress up / costume experience outside of Halloween. My mother had taken me as a very small child, which I barely remember, but when I reached the 6th grade she asked me if that was something I’d like to go to. At the time, I was studying Medieval History with my class so of course it was an enthusiastic YES!

I was a crafty little one even then. I got myself a pattern and sewed a costume all by myself. I remember being incredibly proud walking around in my first costume, taking in all the sights and sounds of the fair.

To this day, I still love taking people who have never gone. Popping their renaissance fair cherry sort to speak. I love seeing the looks on people’s faces when they step out of their daily routine and comfort zone and experience a little world hidden in plain sight.

And also, it’s just plain fun.

Also, my dear friend Ashley is quite the ham. If you haven’t checked out her gaming channel on Twitch Hack Attack, you are missing out.

 

 

Have a lovely day everyone!
