Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire 2015 (08/08/15)
We attended Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire 2015, weekend 2 day 1. Todays theme was Fantastical Faeries! This was mine + Zachs first ever Renaissance Faire. It was an hour drive from where we live in greenlake.
I had a good time there! There were so many vendors, they all had unique booths but were all within the general magical renaissance theme. Gypsy Clothes, Weapon Shop, Leather workers, Costumes and so much more. They even had some shows and events going on in different areas of the faire grounds.
I adored many of the costumes! To be honest I almost forgot about the event so I stayed up late the night before and made my fairy wings from things all around my apartment: 4 wire hangers, 4 plastic clothing bags, nail polish as paint and glitter! But I think it came out pretty nice. I also wore my Shop Tobi Fringe dress with my long crafturday fringelets. To finish the look I went on youtube and looked up a fairy makeup tutorial and I tried to re-create it. I also styled zacharys look. He wore a gauze shirt I had sewn him while ago, and paired it with some of our accessories. Over all I am happy with both our looks.
It was a large area with tons of people walking around, maybe 1/2 were in costumes. In my opinion I think people who attend should at least try to dress up a little (a hat, some type of clothing, or face paint) just as a respect for the event and the hardworking people who are trying to make it legit. -end rant-
This was a really fun event to attend! Visting a Renaissance fair was actually on my bucket list. I am so glad I was able to attend it. Zach and I agreed we would try to adventure and try to visit more events like this in the future!
