    Just got back from the Ren Faire

    It was a beautiful October day here in Nor Cal and we headed to the Faire at 10 am. It took us about an hour to get there. As we were walking to the ticket booth, a guy passing by handed me a free ticket worth 25 bucks and then a lady walking by handed me four coupons for 5 bucks off on each ticket......that made my day!


    All the usual players were there and then some. Moonies was the best by far as always...truly a funny show!


    Here are some pictures in no particular order. Enjoy!



    This is Amanda from Brazil who is living with my friends. my exchange student Laura who's from Germany and my daughter Brittany picking out their hairstyles!





    Here comes the marching band.



    Getting braided





    Later on at lunch watching the belly dancing show.





    Brittany enjoys a soda while getting braided...those suckers were 3.50 a piece!







    My hair didn't take long to braid since I only did the top.





    Ken took a big bite out of his leg, I just licked it!




    Axe throwing is fun!



    Heading to the food arena,,,that's Tiffany in the foreground.



    She had the fanciest braiding.



    Swinging right after eating wasn't too bad!




    We also threw darts and I actually won a prize..wait till you see it!




    I was a happy camper!



    There were so many awesome costumes on people!




    Laura getting braided





    Amanda looked lovely in purple ribbons and flowers.




    Same turkey leg!




    Surprise!



    Courtney got shackled when I wasn't there!



    Cool music!




    Learning how to throw the axes.





    Sweet girls!



    Ooh, now this is gonna be fun!




    More lessons!



    Love my Renaissance man!












    I have no idea who this guy is...he looks nice.



    Cool stuff to buy!



    Courtney's little tongue is sticking out while she concentrates on dart throwing! LOL


    The "two fairly young guys who pushed wood" for us ..their words, not mine.





    Not so sweet anymore!



    Courtney gettting braided.







    More to come later........

    Re: Just got back from the Ren Faire

    Thanks for the great shots of your trip to the Ren Faire, PB! The costumes look great on all of you. It looks like all of you had a wonderful time!

    I'm sure I shouldn't notice this but....the gal with the yellow hair scarf under the "awesome costumes" caption seems to be eager to introduce her "friends" to the crowd. Are those really hers, or is she carrying some type of produce?

    Re: Just got back from the Ren Faire

    That is so cool, love your guys costumes. We have a ren-fair here in AZ which is ok, but I think trying to believe you are in the times is a little different in the middle of the desert between Phoenix and Florence. Looks like a great time, thanks for sharing your experience.

    Oh, BTW, the "I have no idea who this guy is...he looks nice." reminds me of a cop. Why? Because a friend of mine who looks like that (only your picture is a younger version) is a retired police officer, so I say undercover cop.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    You do realize you made me go back and look don't you? Good lord.... leave it to a man to notice that....


    Awesome pics Anne!!! And they are wonderful costumes! A few years ago my daughter made a Ren style dress for Halloween, but nothing as elaborate as those! Some day I'd like to go to a Ren Faire... looks like great fun!

    LOL I think those were all hers! The worst ones we saw were on the tickets sales lady. I think everything but her nipples were hanging out and she had written "kiss" and "me" on them.....igh! My hubby jokingly told me that he was going to take as many pictures of nice looking boobs as he could inconspicuously just so he could start a "special" thread for the guys of Micechat!

    Yikes! I can't even imagine having one in AZ. It's hot enough as it is here at Casa de Fruta!

    Don't know about your cop theory , but we saw quite a few cops who were happy to hand cuff guests and pose for pictures with them! LOL

    I loved these little dragons.




    Brittany was a happy camper.

    This guy was carrying around dead fish!


    I can't tell you what made Brittany make this face'





    Ken liked this gal's monkey.






    Tiffany was a happy camper too.







    Probably because she'd just bought these gloves and leggings to go with her Halloween costume. Don;t ask me what she's supposed to be cuz I don't know.






    I was a good girl and drank soda for the most part.





    I love this group shot of us






    They really did say naughty words!



    Amanda and Laura enjoyed their first American Ren Faire






    Another guy kind of costume.
