My best friend Tella who is a social butterfly heard that the Renaissance Festival was just a giant party. I tried to explain the history and which social ranks wore which types of clothings. I tried to explain the purpose of corsets and how the dress she chose was for a pauper not a queen. I gave up and let her choose what she wanted.I tried to explain plaque doctors and their purpose. Bubonic plague conversation wasn’t cheerful enough.
She wants to be a queen but wear a pauper dress with a crown. I gave up. Let her have fun.
She explained to me she was trying to dress me up as a gypsie instead she chose an A shape tank top which is 4 sizes to big and a silk full length skirt. I tried to tell her my flip flops are to modern. She chose several gold bangles. I at first was irritated she had no idea what she was going. I realized she was proud of her choices so I bought them. I hope to find something more historical accurate later but at least she was having fun even though I looked like an early 2000s school teacher. It was so baggy I tied a scarf around the waste to cinch the maternity style tank top.
My husband is upset because I got called into work tomorrow to cover a shift. He wanted me to drive him around all day.. how is he supposed to rent a truck to bring the front clip to his wrecked car home?. considering he has a history of wrecking cars I am terrified he will total another one of mine.
I got to go on Amazon and try to find my husband and me Renaissance style clothing to wear to the fair.
