I think your wife's garb is fine for just about any renaissance faire. You are not on cast so dress in what you like and are comfortable in. I suggest you see what others are wearing before spending a bunch of money. Check out the garb vendors at faire for ideas too. That way you can try on what you like. Gina
I'm suggesting you dress up in what you already have. Faire is always so much more fun in garb, no matter what it is!Gina
You are welcome. I've read your thread in the garbing section. Some very good ideas there also. Good luck in your search and enjoy the experience.Gina
Diaval, I just wanted to say hello to a fellow member of the Halloween Forum. I remember your posts over there after you created your wife's Maleficent costume. I'm "Hexme" there. Anyway, I'm not surprised that you are interested in attending Ren Faire. I think loving Halloween and dressing up is in the same vein as dressing up for faire, they both appeal to a child like spirit.
Like others have said, just look at pics of different festivals to get an idea of what "traditional" ren faire garb looks like. But costumes of any sort seem to be welcome at faire, especially when they're as well done as your wife's Maleficent. The NY faire, in particular, has fantasy characters in their cast so I think Maleficent would certainly be welcome.
Garb knowledge isn't gained overnight so have fun with your research and don't stress. In my experience MOST ren faire playtrons are very welcoming, no matter what you're wearing, they really, truly are. Just go get your feet wet and have a great time! Your taste in ren faire clothes with evolve over time as your knowledge increases, and as your tastes change.
Honestly, wear whatever you want. The whole purpose of faire is to just have fun, and whether you want to dress period or fantasy doesn't matter. The only people who are frowned upon are those who inhibit others from enjoying themselves, it's a big friendly community. NYRF is my home faire, and it's a really magical place.
