The Texas Renaissance Festival is the largest in the world. I have attended such festivals in North Carolina and Tennessee, and I’ll admit that the size of this one trumped all others.
We often found ourselves overwhelmed. Please note Jordie in this video.
This was Lee and Jordie’s first RenFest experience. We all exited the scene with very different conclusions:
1. Lee, having grown up in New Jersey, spent her youth at Medieval Times – a place she designates as “more interactive and awesome” than RenFest. The biggest surprise for her was running into a high school friend.
That being said, this video begs to differ:
2. Jordie‘s biggest realization was in regard to the scantily clad costume choices. We couldn’t believe how unashamed people were of their bodies. People of all sizes choose to wear wildly revealing costumes. Every aspect of their body language proved that none of them had even noticed they were nearly naked.
Jordie also had an excellent experience purchasing the obligatory turkey leg.
3. My personal perspective hasn’t changed much from the past RenFests I’ve attended. I still find everything I encounter to be absolutely absurd. The following series of photos are only way to truly prove my point.
Fare-thee-anon. Prithee wait until I shall post againe!
