halfway there…

renaissance fair has never interested me until a friend pointed out there is axe-throwing and ham-leg-eating. i’m in.

Searching the internet for something appropriate for the event… i thought about Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo & Juliet…. Is THAT the Renaissance?  It’s Shakespeare so it should be right?  I watched that movie over and over when I was a kid.  This is the best scene.

wide eyed olivia hussey is so pretty. i want this dress! It would be perfect for renfair.. classy and not too wenchy

Photobucketseriously picture perfect.

is this too 70s for renfair?
Photobucket
only feels 70s if it’s short like this right?

this is the default outfit but i really don’t want to go there…
