Kilted Picture, Day Twenty Nine

Yesterday's King Richard Faire picture seemed to be a decent draw, so here's one from yesterday's excursion to the Faire:

I have found the shop of my people! 

After twenty (yes, twenty!) years of attending King Richard's Faire, this is most likely the last time we'll be going. It's doubtful we'll make the trek up from Virginia to attend, and there are other Renaissance Faires in the NoVA area for us to check out. One thing we realized about KRF is that while we're comfortable with the location, we've seen everything twenty times - so while we'll miss it, it'll be nice to see something new.

All month long I'll be going about kilted and posting kilted pictures as part of Kilted to Kick Cancer. As we've done in years past, there's a friendly competition running to see who can raise the most money for prostate cancer research. As I did last year, I have a pretty awesome array of prizes that can be won as well as a challenge to meet my goal! for incentives to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation on my behalf. Which you can do here:

As always, thanks to everyone who has or is thinking about donating, and a special thank you to the folks that gave prizes as incentives!

That is all.

In the fall there's the Maryland Renaissance Festival:

Springtime has the Virginia RenFen:

My wife and I want to know if the sword was fair-locked. She thinks it is. Me, I think a fair-lock would be pretty pointless, considering you've probably got the Snubby From Hell tucked away somewhere...

Nicely done Sir! :-)

"Got Kilt?" sounds like a shop that sells resurrection spells in a Dungeons and Dragons game. "Got Kilt? Come to Miracle Max's and get un-kilt!"

As Stretch says, there is a Maryland Renaissance Festival. I have found it quite enjoyable. Three years ago, I took my ten year old Goddaughter (actually, her mother practically forced her to go). On the way back, I asked her if she had enjoyed it and received the ultimate accolade. After thinking for a minute, she thoughtfully remarked, "It was better than I thought it would be."

They didn't make you blow Weerd's cockflute, did they?

MDRF is one of the oldest Faires in the country (if not THE oldest). it's well-established in its little hilly hidey-hole.

and it's within an hour drive (or so) of a few of us. :)
