2020 Renaissance Festival Costume Update- Festival Update and Future Costume Sewing and Blog Plans
March 18, 2020
On Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Governor of Arizona announced a mandate that required there be no gathering over 50 people within the state of Arizona for eight weeks. This was done to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. This also means the end of the Arizona Renaissance Festival for the year. I am very disappointed, but I understand why this needed to happen and complaining about it won’t help me feel better. But sewing can.
As I mentioned before in other posts, I had no clue what kind of costume to make and wear to the festival. Since I no longer need to go, I have no need to make a costume. Despite this, I know I will be stuck at home most of the week, bored. So, to alleviate my boredom, I will continue to work on my Renaissance Festival costume for next year, or whenever I have the opportunity to wear it.
Now that I’m not worried about how much time I have to work on the costume before the Festival ends, I plan on working as many costumes as I can. I’m not sure how many I can finish in the next few weeks, but I know I will do my best to get started working on the costumes I already have the supplies for. I plan to make videos and blog posts about my sewing endeavors and other things I plan to do during the next few weeks, including learn how to use my new drawing tablet and photo and video software.
And, before I end this post, I wanted to mention something I talked about in my previous post. I talked about, depending on where my work needs me, moving to a new city and possibly a new state. Any sort of moving to a new town/city/state has been predisposed until further notice.
