Renaissance Festival Women in Chainmail
These were shot at the Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville during the fall of 2008. It was my first outing with a then brand new Nikon D300 DSLR. One business there rents chainmail slave girl costumes to the fair attendees. They participate in a parade around the fairgrounds. Later many of the girls will dance on the second floor of the chainmail store.
Several of the dancers are regulars and appear in my photographs from the 2012 Texas Renaissance Festival. As the fall nears I look forward to this event, so I thought it was a good time to redo these photos from my archives.
Photographers Traci Matlock and Ashley MacLean appear in the group shot. Notice the tattoos on several of the participants.
