    My wife and I enjoy going to Ren Fairs, mostly in northern Illinois.  We both dress up - I'm not sure how I look but she looks gorgeous no matter what she wears.  Fills out her dress nicely, too ;)Started with a trip to Spain where we went to a medieval castle.  We've also...

    Busty Wench

    I have been to King Richard's Faire, in Carver MA, and I've been to the Sterling Forest Ren. Faire, in Tuxedo NY. They are SO much fun. Next year I hope to attend the Maryland Faire. I love getting trussed up in my bodice and flouncy skirts. It can be difficult, though, to keep...

    Medieval Fairs N Me

    My first was Geneva, many eons ago, and Geneva remains my favorite. I have enjoyed several clear across the US, and frequently attend; even occasionally work a booth, Sarsaparilla of course. I always attend in costume and love to work off the actors. Living in Vegas though is not...

    A Fun Piece of History Without the Plague!

    I have a great time at Renaissance Faires. Turkey legs, cauldrons brimming with garlic mushrooms, the music, the players, costumes, jousting, storytelling, and singing executioners. Let's go!

    The Best!

    I wasn't really into Renaissance Festivals until I moved to Texas. Texas Ren Faire rocks! It is the best. The biggest in the United States. You really haven't been to a renfair until you've to this one. It's situated between Houston and Austin, in the small town of Plantersville...

    Elephant?

    I went to one in Colorado awhile back.  I got to ride the elephant.  I was just a kid, and I went on alone, it was soo scary!!!  But the shops at Renaissance Fairs are fun, and the roasted nuts are delicious!!!  (I don't usually eat nuts)  =]

    Feels Like Home

    The first Ren Faire I remember going to was when I was 17, with a group of friends and my first boyfriend. Being a fantasy fiction reader, I was in heaven. My mom later told me that she'd taken me to one as a baby. In my 20's I started going every year, bought a costume and...

    Sewing a Kilt!

    A Tradition

    I attended my first Ren-Fest at 16, and I went every year after that for years. Lately time and work hours have gotten in the way of me going, but I plan to reinstate the tradition next year! It's wonderful- like stepping back in time. I love the costumes, the music, the food...

    Nice Cleavage

    Any guy who has ever been at a renaissance Fair knows that the best parts are the colorful ladies in costume with great boobs and cleavage. And these women can get a bit raunchy too. Some of the acts are bawdy. They really are not a good place for kids at times, because of all...
