10 Photos in This Gallery

More photos from a place where you can put on a costume and be someone else for a weekend.  People are drawn to the Texas Renaissance Festival because it’s an escape from reality.  I will post a third gallery of photos tomorrow.

The gentleman in “Barbarian Couple” is a competitive body builder.

    • It’s pretty crazy. Perhaps I have a way of documenting that kind of thing.

      • These Renaissance Fairs are something. And yes you do have a way…..BTW thanks for your compliment on my work, Comparing it to Hitchhikers.

    • Sometimes I think I need to get a Hog, go there and drink beer with the rest of the crowd.

    • Thank you. Are you in Texas?

      October 13, 2014 at 10:20 am

      • Yes, in San Antonio. I just moved back here in June.

        • I am hoping to go up there next Saturday. Order a Mexican Martini and think of my photos. Then write one of your cool romantic poems.

          October 13, 2014 at 10:26 am

        • Sounds like a perfect afternoon! And you reminded me, I haven’t written a romantic poem for a few days….I need to get on that today ♥ :)

          October 13, 2014 at 10:31 am

        • It just turned dark here, rain and thunder to follow…

          October 13, 2014 at 10:41 am

        • I think we sent it your way. It was like that here this morning :) Thunderstorms are my favorite!

          October 13, 2014 at 10:44 am

        • Rained buckets, but has stopped for now.

          October 13, 2014 at 1:17 pm

        • Lucky you! It is pure blue sky here now ♥

          October 13, 2014 at 1:35 pm

        • Give it time.

          October 13, 2014 at 1:37 pm

        • Lol, typical Texas weather :D

          October 13, 2014 at 1:39 pm

  15. The girl looks fab. Great Picture.

  16. Personally enjoy Ren Fests, but always amused at chain mail costumes that, at best, might save you from an unexpected mastectomy or vasectomy

    October 13, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    • Yeah, that stuff could catch ion something. The chain mail shop sells girls flesh colored inserts for comfort, but some gals just wear a nice bra for extra comfort. I don’t know what the guys are doing, and don’t want to know.
