In September, we went to the MN renfest, and it was absolutely fantastic!! It was my very first experience at a Renaissance festival, and I had the best time. The costumes we're wearing were very kindly lent to us by Maggie's friend's mom, and made the experience so much more exciting. It wouldn't have felt nearly as authentic if I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
At the Renfest was also where we were introduced to the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, who have a chapter in Minneapolis. We've been dancing there since late September, and I don't know when I've had more fun!!!
It's a little hard to see, but this was right after being glittered by the fairy dust man at one of the booths...
And a full-length shot, after Maggie had taken off her awesome hat. It was really warm, and I was glad I was wearing shorter sleeves.
We're looking forward to going next year, and plan to make our own costumes!!
