“Rock climbing in the Renaissance Era? They must’ve left that out of the textbooks.”

Ancient Renaissance man climbed rocks for exercise… I guess.

So, I went to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire for the first time ever this past Sunday. Why it had to be a record breaking 100+ degrees that day is beyond me, but I came home appreciating the fact that I don’t actually live in the Renaissance times. I would be pretty sad if I could only take one shower per year. And probably really grumpy.

Sanitation aside, I had a pretty great two hours at the Faire. I did a lot of people watching, and was amazed at how animated the cast members were considering the sweltering heat and layers of Renaissance garb. Kudos to you guys for keeping the magic alive. So be sure to visit the Renaissance Pleasure Faire! If only for the giant swing that only costs 300 pence and the boobs (if you’re into that). I recommend planning on going on a cooler day or later in the day for ultimate comfort, and minimal sunburning.

I’m sure you’re wondering what motivated me to go to the Renaissance Faire and spend 2 hours of my Sunday in the hot hot heat. Well, it all comes down to two things: I love crafts. And the Renaissance Faire was full of vendors who had tons of unique goodies to offer and display. Secondly, I love anything that is themed. Just ask my college roommates. I love themed parties, themed movie nights, you name it. So any chance to dress up or make an unusual outfit is right up my alley.

Anyway, here are some photos from the Faire. Enjoy and fare thee well! I must away!
