Huzzah!

I promised you all some Renaissance Faire pictures a bit ago...I bet you thought I forgot...or, perhaps, were just hoping I did...haha!

Well, since the week is passing quickly yet again...and I have no new art to share...

You get to enjoy ( or be forced to gaze upon) some of the highlights of this year's Faire :)
I'll keep my descriptions brief!  Haha!

My Darling Maggie (right) and her Cousin both went as pirates.


Mags was Captain Snaggletooth you might just barely see that just-about-to fall-out tooth sticking out over her lip.


....in the stockade....though still undeterred from thinking about her next naughty deed :)

My Father Dad...


...he'll forgive her anything.



There were green dragons perched on shoulders....



...and fairies....which is new.  They walked around very slowly and interacted with the children.  The actors would pretend nothing was there and ask us what we were all staring or laughing at.



This Autumn Fairy seemed to be just as enamored with my nephew as he was of her.....



Maggie and me caught taking a cuddle break.


...And just for Joyce....a better pic of me...though not by much....haha!


Take heed....there are always Punks that show up to events like this...
Steampunks, that is!






It was a shame my Mom couldn't go this year.   She put together a great Steampunk costume this year, but hasn't gotten to wear it yet. 

 But fret not, I'll definately show you more pics next year! Lucky you....haha!!

Hugs,
Cameron

Oh man! I wish we had one of these close by! Your costumes are so great and I love the fairies!!

Thanks so much for the cute stickers and other "ephemera". I'll have fun finding places to use them! :D

Jennifer said...

You look beautiful! And so does little Maggie. Oh gosh the Autumn fairy and your nephew are the cutest thing ever!

I love these pictures of your Renaissance fairs. We just don't have things like this around here. I can only imagine what the shop stalls are like. SWOOOON!

Oh my gosh what a great posting! I LoVe(!!) the Renn. Faire ~ we haven't been for a few years but it's always so much fun. I love that they've added pirates to it and now Steampunk ~ there really is something for everyone.

What great pics Cam. Looks like a wonderful day. I haven't been to a Faire in years...the costumes have really evolved beautifully.

Heather Henry said...

Oh yay!!! Looks like you had a wonderful time and I love all of the costumes. You all look fabulous. Also, steampunk, huzzah, love it! Now I am really hoping we can get to one this year. Looks like it was a gorgeous day for you there too. Yay for fairies. :)

Fallingladies said...

I love renaissance festivals, we have one in sterling, NY, a few hours away but i haven't been in years. So much fun!

Daniele Valois said...

oh my, we are so different here. I loath the Ren faire and my fam is basically forcing me to go this year. However, fairies? I have never seen them there! That is pretty cool! Their makeup rocked! And steampunk? Now, that said, I am so happy to see you all dressed up and we always want to see pics of you. Lots of pics of you!!!

It looks like you had a fab time and that is awesome sauce! :D

Magaly Guerrero said...

What beautiful and naughty looking pirates! and the the fairies are so pretty. Dad, very handsome, of course. Punks look great anywhere; there is something about the new and the old coming together that I find lovely. I'm a bit jealous of your adventure ;-)

And you have something at my blog: http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2012/05/crow-envy-and-lion.html

Sunshineshelle said...

Love steampunk... mmm should have choose that as my super hero costume come to think of it ;) Hey you got a mention over at Magaly's blog girl, it's sweet!

Patricia Mühlbacher said...

Hey Cameron, I came across your blog via "Pagan Culture" and loved these pictures. Back in my home country Austria (I am currently staying in the States) we do have medieval times festivals located at the castles around my town, but I have never been to a renaissance fair. I really love the Fairies :D Your hat is gorgeous!

hugs

Lisa Graham Art said...

Looks like fun...you could create about a dozen paintings from your pictures!

I love the picture of you and the one of you and Maggie...so pretty...so sweet. : )

Manon said...

What a fun day out, all so colourful. No wonder there are no paintings done here lol, who can blame you. Steampunk what a great way to dress up. I have a fancy dress party to go to at the end of the month, the theme is not steampunk but I am going to turn it into that.

What fun...I've never seen anything like it! Oh, how I would love to be the Autumn fairy...so pretty! I just love everything about this fun! And I got a surprise in the mail today! I can use everything in my journal! It couldn't have come at a better time! Thank you SO much, sweet friend! You've made my day!

Kristin said...

Ha! LOVE these - Maggie is SO stinkin' cute and so are you! Such a beautiful family - inside and out ;)
I went to a renaissance fair last Summer in Lake Tahoe - was SO much fun! I even bought magical bubbles ;)
AND can we talk about the colored fairies? What a commitment! xoxo!

You are so lovely!! What a ton of fun!! I wish I had been there, I so need that sort of event in my life. Looove the colorful gals!! Fairies are the best. Mischief and all.

Your banner is so beautiful!

Daniele Valois said...

I am just checking in and saying hi! I have been using my extra goodies!!! I haven't hung my new stuff yet so I will try to get to that soon and get a pic up for you!

And I have not forgotten about you and your trade!!!
