Well, the twins are wimping our for this weekend down in Ft. Myers, so that gives me a few more weeks to finish up some last minute garbing projects. We will be coming the weekend of the 31st.

Patti and I are right this second just 2 miles from the faire, overnighting at a Walmart in our RV. 

Tomorrow morning at 9am we check in (that is when check-in opens) and then we wait for the faire to open!

This is our favorite Florida show.  Try to come out!  You WILL be pelted by marshmallows, but its all in good fun!

I will be the guy in the kilt pelting you, R/F pin proudly displayed on the breast of my leather vest.

DANG I love this faire!

My wife and I are planning to the last weekend of the faire.  We are/were planning dressing for the event, but after reading some of the threads about "snarking" and people making comments about not being historically accurate, it's making me think twice.  I know she'll never want to go again if someone says something to her about her costume/garb.  I don't even think the outfits we were going to wear will be exactly accurate to that period.  If we go, we may just attend in our regular (current) clothing instead.  Besides, it's very difficult for an asian guy to find something that would be historically accurate.

Please don't think twice. The garb worn at Hoggetowne is all over the board. Our own are not designed to be historically accurate, just comfortable and fun.

Whichever way you decide, please make yourself known to some of us. We love to meet new people.

Escalarta,

Thank you for your response.  My wife didn't want to wear a dress, so she's wearing some type of female swordswoman garb sort of like a musketeer without the surcoat.  I am attempting to put together some type of primitive mongol (keeping with my asian heritage) outfit.  We both cannot sew worth a wooden ducat so we are going to try and cobble it together from various things.

Renfairenewb welcome to our home away from Faire. As you can see I am a common Woodsman, but if you could see my feet you would see I am wearing knee high Indian moccasins with the fringe cut off. I will be there next weekend so if you see me come over and say hello. 8)
