Show and Tell Friday - Renaissance Festival!


I just wanted to show my little sweeties dressed up for the Renaissance Festival. I made both of their costumes in one evening. They decided at the last minute that they REALLY wanted to dress up, so we ran to Wal-Mart and shopped on the bargain table and found some material that worked perfectly. I sewed all evening to a constant barrage of "is it done yet?". It was worth it!
The Texas Renaissance Festival is one of the largest of its kind. http://www.texrenfest.com/ We go every year and we also attend the "school days" with our homeschooling group.

Here is a picture of the joust in the arena. It is exciting. Although it is staged, it is still fun to watch!

Here are the kids attacking the enemy. There are tons of shops and they all have such amazing stuff in them! Replicas of costumes, shoes, jewelry, head gear, swords... you name it, they have a shop for it.

Great costumes! Oh I miss the Renaissance Faire I used to go to in California. They don't have one as big here in Oregon. It was so much fun!

We have Renaissance Festivals near here too. I've never been, but a friend of my loves to go with her family every year. You did a great job on the costumes!
