Arizona Renaissance Festival- March 3, 2018

Hi everyone! I’m back from a two week blogging break! I had to take some time off because of the Easter holiday and to focus on my day job. But I’m back now with a new post about my trip to the Arizona Renaissance Festival! I’m also doing some cross posting of the photos in this post on my second blog, The Estella Imitative, so if you see photos with this blog’s watermark in a post on that blog, I’m just too lazy to reedit photos with the right watermark. 🙂

On March 3, 2018 I went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Unlike previous years, I didn’t buy a season pass so I only went to the festival once this year. Since the festival has themed weekends, I wanted to go to Time Travelers weekend. I’ve gone every year during this weekend for a few years now and I enjoy it so much I keep going back.

Since 2018 is the 30th anniversary of the festival, Lego Discovery Center in Arizona Mills Mall created a sculpture out of Legos to celebrate.

The sculpture was located in front of the jousting horses stalls. Continue reading “Arizona Renaissance Festival- March 3, 2018”

2015 Arizona Renaissance Festival Photos

Warning: This post is image heavy.

At long last, I finished editing and uploading the photos I took at the Arizona Renaissance Festival this year. It only took me almost a month and a half to do. *sigh*

I uploaded the photos to my Flickr recently in this album. All the photos in this post are linked to the photos on Flickr. If you want to see a bigger version of the photos, click on the photos and it will take you to the photo on Flickr.

I originally intended on doing what I did last year and buy a season pass to the Renaissance Festival (Or RenFest as I like to call it) but the car accident I got into in January depleted my RenFest funds and, worst of all, my desire to go. It got so bad at one point I was planning on not going at all this year (I didn’t have any friends to go with either), but I was able to gather some money to get a ticket and some money for a turkey leg in time for Time Traveler’s weekend.

When I was planning on getting a season pass, I wanted to wear the Clara Oswald Robots of Sherwood dress I was making earlier this year during Time Traveler’s weekend because AzTardis would be there with their Tardis. I thought I could get photos of me standing next to the Tardis because I was feeling healthy and confident enough to let people take photos of me. Unfortunately, I was so depressed about what happened in January and beyond that I took so much time working on the dress I didn’t finish the dress in time to wear it to Time Traveler’s weekend. It was very sad because I was nearly done making the dress, but my mind was elsewhere. Instead, I dressed like I normally do and wore the real Firetrap Harrie I got a few months prior to the Festival. (And, ironically, I was wearing it when the car accident happened. I love that jacket so much I’d wear it during a car accident. :P)

Even though I didn’t get a photo taken of me standing next to the Tardis, I did get photos of the Tardis motorcycle (I call it the Tardiscyle)…
