V155: Valhalla Renaissance Faire, 2012

Lovely courtesans, cute gig

I’m back from Valhalla Renaissance Faire, at South Lake Tahoe.  Yesterday was lovely, not too hot, and not snowing, lol.  Here are some photos from our day…

Mom and me, in our trusty ole costumes
Court musician sleepin’ on the job
I carved a fox into the St. Maximilian (German Landsknechts) “make your mark” table, in honor of Maggie, who was missed.
She was so cute – don’t think she was really meaning to flip anybody off, though, lol.
Miss Jenny trying on  a German hat
This is what happens when Jenny and I get together

I wore the recycled blue kirtle made from Tudor Tailor, and am happy to report that is didn’t hurt or bother, which means hopefully it can stay in its current form for awhile!  This blue fabric has been a flemish gown, an English gown, a Regency Spencer, and now it’s been refashioned in its latest English kirtle incarnation.

The End!

    Awwww! I wish my mama would costume with me. I've gotten her out to the Ren Fest in MN once in costume, and I think that may be it. I hope you had a blast, and you looked amazing 🙂

      It was great! The weather was lovely, for once. My mom is such a sport – she insisted on going even though her horse had stomped her toe a few days before, and she could barely walk!

      We did! We passed by on several occasions, but I couldn't just waltz in dressed the way I was, you would have had me hauled out! Instead your musicians and I heckled Rydell, tee hee <3
