Favorite Costumes from the SoCal Renaissance Faire

I'm not sure if you guys have noticed, but I take a lot of photos.  One of my cameras is almost always in tow, and especially so when I go to events like a renaissance faire.  I am that annoying person that is always stopping to photograph a flower or a sign and sometimes it just seems like I am stopping for no reason at all.

While at the renaissance faire, I shoot a lot of costume photos.  Since I returned to the renaissance faire yesterday (I managed to get free tickets while visiting last weekend), and took several more photos I thought I would share my favorite costumes of this year's renaissance faire with you.

  1. We do a "Medieval Day" festival with our 6th grade students every April as a culminating activity from their World History class. I've done this for five years now, and I'm so determined to make a more authentic 13th-14th century tunic and surcoate so I don't have to keep wearing poorly made costumes or over-sized dresses every year.

    Love the colors in some of these costumes. And the pink, furry unicorn is made of win!

  2. I definitely admire the guy who came as a unicorn. He was very nice about photos too - as you can imagine.

    Ooh a tunic and surcoat would be lovely. There are so many wonderful fabric choices. I've seen patterns for historically accurate/period wear somewhere around the interwebs too.
