This Saturday (9/18/10) is the opening weekend for the Northern California Renaissance Faire at Casa De Fruta in Gilroy. I promised to take the family there and we cannot wait to go! We plan to get into the spirit of the RenFaire and, rather than rent or purchase costumes, plan to make our own costumes. My boyfriend already has his costume so it is just me and the kids who have to get creative. We plan to go to the Salvation Army this evening to shop for suitable clothing to transform. My inspiration for my costume is this costume by Zoogster Costumes.
|Sexy Renaissance Wench Costume - Dress, Apron and Garland|
My plan is to find a long, flowy skirt, vest and a blousy top. Then I'll layer the skirt with a piece of cloth for the apron and add a belt and suede boots. As for the kids, I suppose that will remain to be seen. I will post an update as to how these costumes turn out!
