Huzzah it's Renn Faire time!!!

The Renaissance Faire in Bristol, WI starts TODAY! I really wish we could have gone opening weekend, but I'm pushing for next weekend!

My costume is almost done, just need a new (lighter weight) chemise. I'm still deciding if I should wear the rose skirt in the picture, or an olive green one I have. I might make an over skirt if I have the time. It's not too difficult to do, but if I want to go to the Faire this coming weekend, I don't think I'll have the time.

Rob needs a vest, new pants and boots. I hope I can convince him to spend the money to get a nice pair of boots he can wear year after year! I don't know if Rob is going to do the "Jack Sparrow" thing again or not. But the shirt will work for whatever he decides to be! Here are our basic costumes, this was taken last Halloween.

K picked her costume for this year, so I'm working on getting it done.

It's going to be Fuchsia/ Light Pink/ Celadon She wanted it all pink, but I told her that I can't work on an all pink costume (again! LOL)

So far I have the little under dress finished, it's Celadon. Now I'm working on the bodice/vest thingy. That's the Fuchsia, with light pink lining. The skirt will be light pink, then Fuchsia, then Celadon. It looks SO pretty together! I can't wait to do that part. I've never worked with tulle before, so that'll be an experience, but I'm sure I can do it!

The wings are going to be really neat! I found some Organza with little sparkly bits, it's really pretty. She's going to be the prettiest little fairy there (if I do say so myself :) )

My mom made our costumes almost every year (until we were old enough to do them ourselves) and I wanted to be able to do that for my kids too. So I learned to sew. I'm by no means a seamstress, but I can follow the directions and put together a decent looking costume.

My son had a Ren Wedding in APril.

If you are ever in lower Michigan in AUg-Sept-make sure you check out the faire in Holly north of Detroit. I go every year. Does DeD Bob show up at your faire every year? Funny ADULT stuff!!

Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
