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…..
You have some good captures, Teri. I think I think I recognize that last damsel.
Thank you and how did she get in here? 🙂
And there she is “The corseted blue lady.” I must say you look lovely in that dress. I sure you brought many savage barbarians to their knees.
Yes I do know about corsets. They are not for the faint of heart. I had to wear one when I was a teenager for back problems. It was one heck of a fight to get that thing on every morning. Besides the fact it did make it so I could walk, it was very uncomfortable.
Thank you, Tim. Corsets have come a long way since their beginnings and back in your day. Some of them are almost comfortable… depending on how cinched in you want to be. I like being able to breath! LOL
Beautiful photos, Teri! I’ve never been to one of these events. They look fun!
Thank you, Lavinia! This is my first year attending and other than the traffic getting in and out of the festival it is so much fun. Hope you get to visit one one day.
Amazing, beautiful photos, Teri! I looked at each photo enlarged. So much detail. ❤️
Thank you, John. When we come to cosplay we come to cosplay! 🙂
This is fantastic. Thank you Milady. (Bow)
Thank you, kind sir.
