This past weekend at Scarborough Renaissance Festival was absolutely fantastic. The weather was perfect for wandering around this festive arena of shops and shows and we did just that. We putzed through the land most of Saturday just looking at garb trying to decide what we needed for the season. My wife and I both ended up finding items we wanted but decided to have them held and see how they would end up pairing with what we already own. Turns out that was smart shopping as neither of us ended up purchasing what we originally thought we wanted.
This year I have decided to go a different route and just accessorize what I already own and maybe actually purchase a pair of period correct footwear that is long overdue. To start me off my beautiful wife bought me a gorgeous wooden mug from Wondrous Works In Wood as an early birthday present. It’s made from hickory and is sure to improve my look whilst drinking a cold ale on a hot day. We ended up spending probably close to a half hour perusing all the fantastic pieces of wooden art and talking with Sherrie who is just a fantastic friendly lady before finally parting way, but I’m sure we will be back soon so our daughter can partake with us… drinking in style.
Amongst all the people we hadn’t seen in almost a year, we also ran into a few from just a few weeks prior at Sherwood Forest Faire. Necretia, an undead faerie, was one of those. In fact, if I hadn’t seen pictures of parts of her outfit prior to the faire, I wouldn’t have known it was her at all. She did an absolutely fantastic job and made sure you wouldn’t miss seeing her. Not your typical Scarby faerie, but one I wouldn’t want to miss.Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-300 Post Processing: Lightroom, OnOne Perfect Photo Suite, Nik Color Efex Pro 4, Photoshop Shot Info: 1/250 sec at f 5.6, ISO 900
