The Renaissance Festival is here! This signals the end of summer but the start of a darn good time. My husband and I won tickets to go this year, so I’m glad we got to fit it in last weekend!
As every year, I make sure to plan to go on “Pet Weekend,” because why wouldn’t you go on a weekend where you are guaranteed to see a bunch of dogs in costume? We saw a Mastiff there last year, which started our love affair and eventual acquiring of one with our dog, Brim. He didn’t come with us this year, as he gets over stimulated and over heated pretty easily, but maybe when he is less of a giant puppy!
I decided to dress up this year as royalty, although I really like the whole pirate and steam punk possibilities of the Renaissance era. I bought this head-jewel piece (I’m sure there is a nice name for it) last year at RenFest and had the vintage 1970’s dress since last winter. I’ve had a plan for quite some time! I even planned my hair cut (yet to be determined) for AFTER RenFest so that I could have long princess hair.
I got this cool belt at a thrift store a couple years ago and haven’t had much chance or occasion to wear it. It’s actually velcro! Oh, the wonders of thrifting.
