I went to the Renaissance festival today. Having never been to a Renaissance-themed event of any sort, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It turns out the Renaissance festival is basically just a giant shopping mall full of Renaissance-themed clothes and accessories. Needless to say, I was thrilled. Possibly the first time in my life that I have been more excited about clothes shopping than my mother. I didn’t buy anything, though. Let me explain why.
Everything is really freakin’ expensive.
That was my explanation. It’s pretty straightforward, I think. After seeing the absurd prices there (Over 700 dollars for a pair of leather boots? Really?) I’m thinking I should hone up my sewing skills and start a career in Renaissance-era clothing sales.
Also, I added a band and feathers to my hat.
