A Day at the Fair - The Renaissance Faire, that is...

Gramercy for joining me here, Dear Maidens and Knights!

As quite a few of you already know, my family and I visit the Renaissance Faire every year.  We dress up and enjoy the sights and sounds of a time long past.  You can read last year's post here.

But this year was extra special because my daughter, Maggie, joined us for the first time!  I think I was way more excited than she....this meant I could dress BOTH of us...haha!  I just love to wear fun costumes :)

I gave her a couple options....peasant girl....pirate...gypsy.....and told her whatever she, chose I would be, too.

Here's my darling girl in her Gypsy Best!

I got the top and vest at the Thrift Store...the rest I put together with items from my Cosume Bins (yes, I have more than one...heehee)...and the feathered hairpiece I made the night before with silk flowers, feathers, a gold coin charm and hot glue.

My Mom and Dad were both searching for the perfect hats to compliment their garb this year.

This was a contender.

But this was the winner....

This is the hat my dad found.....his solemn face is supposed to be him "in character" :)

My Girl had a full day of adventures!  She rode a Flying Dragon......

She and our other kid companions saw Jack Sparrow (a good lookalike, anyways)....

She marveled at a huge puppet in one of the parades....

She procured a weapon and vanquished a giant :)


We had a wonderful time together!  So much so, she says she wants to go next year....

I can't wait to see what costume she chooses next time...heehee! 

I hope you all enjoyed time with your families this weekend, too!
All my best to you Lords and Ladies....
Cameron

oh lucky lucky Maggie. It would be a dream if something like this would come anywhere near where I lived. You look awesome and so do your parents, good choice with gypsies, but I do love the knife weilding little gypsy, she has got some attitude on that face, Im sure the giant was well scared.
One day I will get there

Hurray for faire! I ADORE attending them. The one in Connecticut is always held in the fall. Sometimes it's really chilling and I get to wear my custom cloak. I look forward to attending every year. I very much enjoy the shows and just everything. You and your sweet Maggie look so lovely. This year I think I shall gypsify myself. Is that even a word? And I promise to share photos with you. :) Glad an amazing time was had by all!!! Theresa
