Kansas City Renaissance Festival 2011

Back in October Dustin and I went to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival with some awesome friends and family!
Several of us made our own costumes. Well, my aunt made them for the most part. I cut a few pattern pieces out on my costume but she did most of the work. 

Dustin surprisingly did a lot of his own costume. He found a pattern for his bracers, picked out his own materials, and put them together himself. He also sewed his vest and did all of the eyelets on all of our costumes (it takes a strong man!)
Obviously Dustin was an archer. Noble and solemn. I was his wild gypsy wife with a free spirit and carefree constitution. Our characters reflected our personalities in real life. If you knew him you may be shocked that he had the guts to dress up in a costume and pretend to live in the 14th century.
