One more week!

Speaking of older photo files.....I came across this old RenFaire photo from 2 years ago:


Me and "Lady Rosa" of the Villa Alava, in our backyard. (Last year I wore something different that I will be using again this year. And to any Python fans: yes that is a ceramic rendition of the Terry Gilliam 'Holy Grail'.)

So as of today, the RenFaire  is one week away and my only concern at this point is one 'uncontrollable'......weather! This is not an event that can simply be moved indoors if it rains. But weather aside things have progressed nicely. The games have been concocted and the 2017 clues and dares printed and stashed away.

I will be setting up more of the yard as this week progresses.....and like I promised...THIS TIME I WILL TAKE PICTURES!

  1. Lady Rosa looks like she is in her mid-30's! An improbability, but you hit the jackpot.

    1. Well technically she was a fresh 39 at the time. She is 17 years younger than me, but she said to tell you "thanks for the compliment" and then went on trying to use some female convoluted logic on how she was actually 'in' her mid thirties at the time as you suggested.

      But, sorry......I love her dearly......but she was 39 at the time.

      And 'yes' I did hit the jackpot with her........which reminds me of the CLASSIC Spiderman exchange when he first meets Mary Jane Watson. "Face it Tiger, you just hit the jackpot." ;-)

  2. Tell her that 39 is NOT mid-30's in my book! I meant UNDER 35. A BEAUTIFUL woman!

  3. Nice costumes. Though I might suggest if it's Renaissance Faire type thing, Rosa might consider a lower-cut blouse with a definite "push-up" aspect as that is the style I've seen at all the "faires" I've seen. The fine ladies as well as the various wenches all showed considerable decolletage. ;-)

    1. Thanks. As for the chemise..... while lower necklines were common, they were by no means exclusive, so that the typical chemise would be worn at exactly the level consistent with the comfort and modesty of the wearer. You will even see the same chemise being worn 'on' the shoulders instead of slid off of them. The push-up garment was the bodice, and you are right that such an addition was very common and provided that 'bosom boost'.....but Rosa doesn't like the feeling of constriction and tends towards designs that don't use a bodice.

      Keep in mind, what you see at a RenFaire reflects the personalities of the women attending and wearing these outfits and I too have noticed they tend towards the more revealing. They also are reflective of whether the wearer is being paid to look a certain way. But everyone is different. Rosa's Renfaire persona is much more in line with being the "Lady of the Manor" rather than the naughty, bawdy wench. There are amazing, period accurate gowns and dresses for ladies that show no decolletage at all.

      Basically......high or low.....it's all good. ;-)
