I went to my very firstÂ Renaissance FestivalÂ at Minnesota.Â It was a huge affair– they even had their own grounds far away from traffic and the likes– frankly, I was quite excited to be experiencing the event given how I’d heard about these sorts of things last year. Without further ado, pictures:
I got to touch these chillax reptiles– This beautiful snake shines purple under the light, and was surprising smooth to the touch. I still can’t get over just how much of a contrast my perception of how a snake’s skin should feel like, versus actually geting to touch it.
A Hops flower that’s used to make beer.
Garlands and Gardens was tucked away in the corner and had really pretty floral head wreaths. I bought two, because I couldn’t decide. It was not only the prettiest, but also the cheapest place for garlands in the festival; to top it off, these were made by ladies at a craft group, and I think the proceedings go into a charity. The lady helping me with my choices was incredibly friendly! I wanted something reddish– after exhausting the ones on display, she went into the back to get more unfinished ones out to show me. Eventually, I decided on one of those, and she got to work fitting it onto my head and then bending the ends to form an enclosure. I even got to help in choosing what coloured ribbons it came with! This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had there. <3
