SLO renaissance fair

. . . was a great event! The fair was very small and tucked back into the hills between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay. It was hot but not deadly hot, and the fair was dry and dusty but yet also quaint. 

We participated with the queens court guild of St. Stephen. Most of the group are friends from other events that we participate in up in SF, so we felt right at home. And of the people we did not already know, new friends were quickly made :)

I wore my usual Elizabethan dress, it was well received, which is always surprising to me because it is so plain :) 
Michaels new sleeves were very nice, I was quite happy with how they turned out. But both of us agree that if we are going to continue doing fairs we are going to need fancier outfits ;)

It's the little fairs like this one where the people are wonderful, the atmosphere is great, and the venue is quaint that remind me why I love renaissance fair and renews my desire to participate in them.

  1. I completely understand why they liked your gown. I thought it was gorgeous when I saw it at the Escondido Ren, and took so many photos of it.
