09.28.2013 welcome to my nightmare
09.28.2013 faux fire
09.28.2013 moldy oldie (take it easy on him he has been sitting still for 20 plus years)
I went to my first Ren. Faire last weekend for my nephew’s birthday. I like the aesthetic and chaos. yes, yes, yes. I am intrigued by the man who can put fish hooks into his eyes and pull down. The faire is in the woods, it is a mix of dusty land and tall trees. The stages are hand painted (one stage’s name is “The Fish Monger” I like how it is built and painted). There are rides that are only powered by humans and gravity. There is a moldy old torture museum. There are acrobats and jugglers who get to ply their trades for costumed visitors.
The saddest thing I saw was a young man in chain-mail with a giant backpack on who just looked so sad and upset. He had such a long face. Josh and I both felt a little heartbroken by it. This is his jam, what went wrong?
