First faire visit at 44. First time in garb at 46. I guess you could say that I'm a late bloomer. ;D

Well I started going to faire when I was 24 or so but didn't dress out until 5 years ago when I was 45.  Now I'm on cast!  Go figure.
Why can't reality be more like faire?

First faire, I was probably 28 or so.  First time in garb, 47.  Oldest daughter went when she was about 8, and is finally getting garb at age 25.  Youngest daughter is 18, has been going for three years and this is her second year in garb.

Not sure what age I was but I was a brownie in Girl Scouts at the time. So maybe 5 or 6,1985 or 86 most likely. First time in garb was 2006.

My first year was when I was 7 and that was my first year working too.  I've never gone without garb. I'm 17 now so 10 years of working there (all at different jobs though).

I was 14-15 the first time I attended a Fair. It was in California and I fell in love the moment I heard about it. It has been about 5-6 years that I have been attending.  :D

I was 41 and was introduced in borrowed/cobbled together garb the first year.

Sooo...that was about 4 1/2 years ago.

15 years of age.  In 1973.  To paraphrase Phil Ochs, I'm half a century old and a quarter of a century high.
