NY Renn Faire

On Saturday, Germaine invited me to go to the NY Renn Faire. Germaine is Bethie’s friend from high school, but being sisters means I get to steal her clothes and her friends. Score! I was really excited to go, since it’s been a few years since I last watched a joust.

When Allison had her wedding, all the bridesmaids wore full garb, so I have a complete outfit, but it’s packed away since I didn’t anticipate needing a corset and full skirt in Beijing. I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t get the chance to wear it again, how often do you get a second wear out of a bridesmaid dress?

Germaine’s friend, like a true geek, uses his iPhone to get directions.

After a great deal of ribbing and careful ID scrutiny, we got beers and went to watch the joust. The joust announcer said how worried everyone had been about the local pollution, but it turns out we’ve got a good clear day, so none of the horses have to wear breathing masks.

Then we went to the knife and star throwing games. This picture shows that it is far more dangerous to be right next to what I’m trying to hit.

kind of close...

Here’s one from the target’s perspective!

    Not only did you miss your target, but you let the target not only see, but photograph you. You are the worst ninja ever!

    Watch out or I’ll aim at something next to you!

    Love the photo from the target’s view. I think we went to the same school of star throwing.^-^

    See, I told you you’d have an opportunity to wear it again. Not my fault it was packed away 🙂
