Woodsman, thank you I will.  Will you be wearing the same thing as in your avatar?

I was toying with coming up, but Sunday is the only day I have free and it's Superbowl. Rather be eating pizza and cheering on the underdogs than doing a six hour/ round trip drive with some possible superbowl traffic spillover.

The last time I checked, it was supposed to be 60's. Beautiful faire weather if you ask me: it's not going to be crazy-hot! We'll be going this weekend, as well.

My wife and I will be there this weekend.  It's our second Ren Faire and our first attempt in any garb (hers is much better than mine).

I hope you succeed on your mongol warrior garb.  However let me add this, the mongols also had higher ups like noblemen and I think their garb was a bit more ornate.  Check with the library reference room in the costume section, I'm sure they would have something.  It is always refreshing to see something different at faire.  With all the English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German  one would think that orientals did not exist in renaissance times(I was actually told that by a playtron who objected to my Ninja garbed body guard).  Actually the comment was that his outfit was not histrically correct(????).   Good luck, hope to see you at faire someplace.

I tried to do a bit of research and what I attempted was to create more a lower class warrior, but I didn't have a lot of time.  I literally put it together last weekend and have worked on parts of it every night this week.  The look I wanted I did not quite achieve...LOL.  The garb ended up looking like a Franciscan monk, but with more of tan color robes and a sash.  My son said I look like a poor man's version of the character from the video game Assassin's Creed (sadly, it's not even that cool looking).  I will probably add some leather to it over time.  My wife and I will make an odd pair.  We won't match at all.  I'll be this pseudo mongol warrior and she'll be a blonde in tights, boots, corset, and Spanish rapier.  I really need to learn how to use that old sewing machine I've got sitting in the garage.  We just plan to have fun and hope we don't get too many negative comments about our garb.

sorry, but exactly where is the "costume section?"

If anyone gives ye a negative comment, send them my way and I'll have a bit o chat with em.

Fun is what we are after, and the coin of a faire. Those who don't understand that should be in the stocks or the brig.
