In June Kentucky has a renfair that runs every weekend in June. I’ve been going every year since I’ve met Eric and it’s a great experience. If you know of any Medieval Fairs going on in your area I recommend you go to one at least once.
This year I went twice. I moved just in time for this event to take place. We ordered my first renfair garb. Unfortunately it was hot. I think I bought the wrong type of chemise for June weather.
The first time we went I wore the dress and I was having problems with my sinuses anyway. I had promised myself that I wouldn’t get heat exhaustion again due to what happened two years ago when I got heat exhaustion. What do I do? I get heat exhaustion again due to sinus problems and drinking water to fast. When it happened Eric, Chris, and his friend dragged me to the fairy woods where there was a Romane tent that I rested at. It was a shaded wooded area. That and we talked to someone dressed as Gandalf and it was pretty bad ass. (Yes it’s called the fairy woods that’s where the Disney Princesses also reside)
Luckily I felt better and was also told by one of the lovely ladies to never wear a suede corset in the dead of Summer. That’s what my corset was made out of and was part of my problem. I know it’s always something with my health.
We went back a couple of weeks later. This time I was in a light weight kimono and not sick. I did a bit more shopping at this one as well. We watched our friends dance merely to music in kilts. (I have footage of that.) We even bought a couple of daggers for our armory that will soon be decorated soon.
All in all I always have fun at these events. I just need to be more careful and not overexerting myself. I’m famous for that and being a klutz . Sometimes I’m even threatened by Eric to be wrapped up in bubble wrap. It hasn’t happened yet so we will see. One day I may wake up to being turned into Bubble Joce.
