We just finished up one of my favorite times of the year, when we indulge in a distant past- the Renaissance! There are man-powered rides to ride, turkey legs to eat, jousts to cheer on, ye old shoppe's to browse, everyone who works there is in character, and the best part - you get to dress up and play along!Whether a noble, a fairytale character, or a villain, there's a part for everyone.This year my little villains went as, well, villains... of the Pirate variety! Yo Ho, Yo Ho!I decided last year at the Ren Fest (dressed as a fairy with my little fairy girls) that we would be pirates this year.I had every intention of Intelligent Man and me going dressed as pirates too, I just ran out of time to make our get-up.Still a little bummed.How awesome would that have been? A whole pirate family with a little squawking parrot!
This year the girl pirates and their boy parrot
won 3rd place in the costume contest!
