Renaissance Faire, Faires, Pirates and Mead
A sunny, Southern California day with heat in the 90 degrees Farenheit weather seemed like a good day to spend a day at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Despite the slight sunburns and sweating profusely all day, Gizzy B, Sailor Mizz and I all had a blast. We ate and drank expensive beer and even made an effort to dress up. I was a space fairy from the future… good thing the theme that day was Time Travel. We ran into tons of friends and got to watch the Dread Crew of Oddwood perform. Those pirates are pretty drunken and a bit naughty.
Check out our video from the Faire! With practice, I think I can get pretty good at throwing axes too… watch out, Hunger Games. Here I come.
I wished it hadn’t been quite so hot at the park because it really killed my appetite and there were so much food I would have eaten otherwise. It’s unfortunate that the alcohol was so expensive too ($8.50 for a cup of beer, whuuuut…) but I guess it keeps the drunken shenanigans at a minimum.
After we ate, I picked a random performance to watch, mostly because of its name: Manly Men in Tights! These guys were absolutely hilarious as they teach the arts of being a manly men. I highly recommend them for a good laugh if you are at the Faire. Plenty of chest hair and men being manly in tights, of course.
One of the vendors were selling beautiful, handcrafted masquerade masks made out of leather. So tempted to get one. Perhaps next year.
We found these gorgeous crows. So wanted one but could not justify the purchase besides having a random crown to wear around and pretend that we were queens and princesses. Sailor Mizz double crowning.
Alex from Chicks With Crossbows found me!
Giselle found her viking people. They were incredibly drunk, as they should be.
