You’re never too old to dress up/cosplay/reenact…etc. The costumes people have worn at the Ren Festival have ranged from purchased at Party City to seriously and accurately handmade. And the makeup? Well, let’s just say that I salute those who go above and beyond just face makeup and cover their entire bodies.
Well done blue and orange fae!
Of course some of those seen throughout the festival are employees and their attire is amazing. Like the Queen and her court here.
Families, friends, couples and reenactment groups come to have fun, shop, enjoy their beverage of choice (it’s the mead for me) and a turkey leg or two. The turkey legs are quite filling by the way. Each weekend, save for the opening one, has been themed so there have and continue to be pirates, knights, vikings, fae and Lords and Ladies roaming about… to name a few.
Some weekends I was able to get quite a bit of photography done such as with the barbarians and the jousting and then there were times when I just got into character and enjoyed. By the way, corsets are not for the faint of heart.
Fare thee well…..
