Ren Faire 2009

We finally made it to the Renaissance Faire...on closing day! :-) I wanted to get Chris' costume started, but unfortunately we couldn't find the items he wanted. All we walked away with were pants in a nice shade of green. I'm kind of glad we didn't impulse shop because I've been looking around the net and found a lot more cooler options for the character he wants to be.

There's nothing like spending a nice day at the Faire w/ your family. I loved seeing all the different costumes and characters that people came up with. I have only ONE complaint.

Ladies, seriously. Wench outfits are sexy, you're meant to show cleavage, BUT quite frankly it's pretty gross when you've squished and squeezed your ample breasts out SO MUCH that the blue veins in your mammary glands look like they are about to explode . You women know who I'm talking about. Seriously, it's neither fun, nor sexy. It just looks POSITIVELY PAINFUL!!! PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS!

Whew! Ok, I've had my say.

Among our highlights of the day...watching 2 great shows: The Kondor Bros (a juggling act) and of course, The Van Kleaver Bros (a comedy/knife throwing act who we are great fans of). Both were amazing and very funny. If you ever get a chance to see them, I highly recommend it. I was joking around that I'd love to get the Van Kleaver Brothers for my birthday party next year. hehehe

I have to say, one of my favorite parts is dressing up. I'm hoping that the next time we go, Chris will be decked out. People who were dressed up kept razzing the poor guy saying he was 'naked' ... I'm assuming because they couldn't 'see' his modern clothes? :-p So my mission is to get him outfitted...then maybe work on a new one for me. I'm wavering between a 'huntress' or maybe something exotic...like tribal. hmmmm

Enjoy the slide show. I hope I put the code in right. :-D
