Ren Faire Pics

So on Sunday we went to the Ren Faire. The costumes I made looked fantastic even though it was so hot and I could not breathe (stupid corset!). Here we are:
And when we first arrived Brian played "Kick the Cabbage":
This was an ongoing theme the entire day and Brian kept on claiming he was kicking everything (Kick the Chicken! Kick the Toddler! Kick the Goat! etc)
Then he played rope war at the tavern:And then had himself some lunch:

You must be joking...

So I ventured into Claire's accessories today thinking that there may be some trinket-y thing that I can use for my costume or some things on the clearance racks that I can deconstruct and use. After much wandering I found a wall with some bohemian things that caught my eye, problem was that I could not get to them because the sales girl was organizing the wall. Fair enough, prolly was her task for the day. She asked me if I needed help and I said that I was looking for something I can use with my Renaissance costume. She asked if I had the costume with me. No... ok this was going downhill pretty quick. Then she said something that left me speechless.
"Renaissance...that's like Greek-y Roman-y stuff, right?"
Needless to say I promptly said that there was nothing here that suited my needs and wished her a good day.
