Hello and Welcome to My Website!

My name is Mary Ruth Anderson, but I prefer to be called Mary. I’m an artist, seamstress, and photography hobbyist. I also make costumes (Or cosplay) as a way to get better sewing and to have fun at conventions and at my local Renaissance Festival. You can read more about me on the about me page.

I like to blog about my art, sewing, and photos I took along with other things that I do or would like to talk about. These posts can be found at the my blog page but if you are looking for pages dedicated to a specific topic, there are pages dedicated to my art, sewing, and photography.

Arizona Renaissance Festival- March 11, 2017

The 2017 Arizona Renaissance Festival is over for the year and I have some more photos I took while there to post and talk about.

The weekend of March 11th and 12th was Time Traveler’s Weekend. It is my favorite of the themed weekends at the festival because there is a Tardis from Doctor Who in front of the front gate and there are Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion in the festival. It’s always amusing to see the storm troopers serve as body guards of the royal court or Darth Vader watch the joust.

Like the last time I went to the festival, I mostly took photos of the joust. I was intending on taking photos of other acts, but I ran into problems with my camera’s batteries so I couldn’t take photos of anything or anyone else. In addition to this, I didn’t stay the whole day. It was unseasonably hot (Over 90 degrees Fahrenheit) and I didn’t want to over exhaust myself. As usual, I had a great time and I’m glad I went on this weekend!

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
