Since I took so many pics you can view all of them from this year on my Flickr. And also check out my post from last year's festival here.
This was my fourth time attending a Ren faire, and I must admit I am HOOKED! I'm seriously considering a life on the road going from faire to faire. Having my own gypsy wagon, braiding people's hair and painting kids' faces. I could sell magic wands and handmade jewelry. Oh man that just sounds perfect to me!
For now I will enjoy going as a visitor :) And enjoy I did! Here's a few of my favorite photos:
My dress is a costume I bought from Amazon. It is all one piece and SO comfortable. I was incredibly impressed with the quality of this dress. And will definitely want to wear it again.
This is the same flower crown I wore last year. I made this myself!
My skeleton key necklace is from Silver Owl Creations. It's gorgeous and so well-made. The owl necklace I found at Sam Moon last year.
My rings and bracelets are pieces I have collected over the years. I made the silver star cuff out of foam and paint.
This is also the same bag I wore last year. I made this as well. And the fox tail is from my very first visit to Scarborough's festival.
These are some old Blowfish Shoes that I have had for nearly 4 years. They are very comfortable and were the closet thing to fairy or elf boots that I currently have.

So far each year I have ordered the chicken strips and fries. Most people carry around a turkey leg, but I just love these french fries!
I try to bring home a trinket from each faire and last year I searched for the perfect walking stick. I didn't find one that "spoke to me", but this year I found it! I am so thankful for this beautiful treasure and just in love with its craftsmanship. The shop I bought it from is called Wazelle's Wood Wizardry. They don't have an online shop (that I could find), but seem to be vendors at SRFestival each year.
Last year I spotted the cutest "fairy garden" and have been inspired to make my own whenever I have my own yard. Well this year they added to it with a healing garden, slayer's garden, and a magical garden. I am so in love!
I gave my best shot but did not win. I have dreamt of using a bow and arrow someday, but I think I could settle for a crossbow :p
A new addition to the festival was the Mermaid Lagoon. It was quite magical and the mermaids were beautiful.
These handsome fellows were two of the Knights from the joust. I am sure I was blushing when I asked for this pic with them. <3 p="">3>
If you'd like to see more of my photos I have uploaded them to my Flickr.
Have you ever been to a Renaissance festival?
If so, do you dress up?
