Just call me "Red"...

I survived last weekend but am quite tired today. I'm not sure how folks who work Ren Faires do it. Two days in the sun, in costume, in character was plenty for me (particularly since I was really there as a glorified baby sitter).

There was fun to be had though, I must admit. The weather was lovely (albeit warm in the garb), most of the kids were adorable and it was nice to get to hone my accent skills. I heard a lot of interesting live music and enjoyed good company. I learned some cat's cradle moves, which I feel sure will astound my friends and family. With the Teacup, Eiffel Tower AND the Witch's Broom, I'm bound to be a smash at at any party...watch out! ;>) I was also adopted by the gypsies, which is something I highly recommend. They're quite an entertaining lot.

Since some of you asked, I've hidden some pics

Just call me "Red"...

Red had a crush on Sasha the Gypsy Prince...but who didn't?

Sasha and Seraphina had my back all weekend, feeding me nuts when there was no other real food to be had and helping me when the children attacked me in droves. Those gypsies are good folk.

Oh wow...I am all a-drool with the cuteness! You look beautiful!

(and that prince, oh he could be such trouble;))

Thanks so much. That is a compliment from you especially, oh costume maven.

And yes...that Prince - he's a heart-breaker.

You are so CUTE!!!!
Aug. 4th, 2008 06:42 pm (UTC)
*LOL* Thanks!
Aug. 4th, 2008 06:56 pm (UTC)
Nice! You all look great.
Aug. 4th, 2008 08:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks sweetie.

you look goorgeous...and the prince looks kinda yummy.

Thank you darlin'...and yes, he's yummy (but he doesn't like girls...shhhh...don't tell the other gypsies).

Oh, pics, yay! You are soooo cuuuuuuute :)

And oh, yes, Gypsies are great fun, but they are Not To Be Trusted, or so I was told by many Good Upstanding Folk. Then again, there's that one branch of my eastern European side of the family that nobody ever talks about, rumored to be Gypsy folk, so....

Well, the weekend is over, and now you can look back on it as an experience comfortably in the past. And you really are adorable, gosh. Agreed on the yummy-ness of Sasha, too ;>

hey...watch who you're talking to...one pair of my great grandparents were Gypsies.....

You tell him!

one pair of my great grandparents were Gypsies

Makes sense, you being a dark haired, mysterious beauty of great power and all.

Oh good, I found my folks then...I always connect to the shadow folk, the edge folk and others who are labeled "not to be trusted". Tells you a bit about me, eh?

Hee-hee...I'll have to make sure Sasha checks this thread so he can see how many folks appreciate his appeal. Sadly for us all, his heart is quite taken (and soon will be taken all the way to Seattle).
Aug. 4th, 2008 09:31 pm (UTC)
Sasha has definitely been checking the thread and preening the old Peacock feathers. :)
Aug. 4th, 2008 08:03 pm (UTC)
You all look great!!! I really like the top pic. of you.

And I'm sure Sasha worked his gypsy magic. ;*)

Thanks darlin'.

Sasha was a charmer...the young girls were swooning left and right. It made me giggle...
Aug. 4th, 2008 08:56 pm (UTC)
You look mah-ve-lous!
Aug. 4th, 2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you love!

yeh, yeh....cute.

Say something dirty to me...all this "cute" stuff is getting to me.
Aug. 5th, 2008 12:38 am (UTC)
*cough* well, as you know, the only time I really dressed up in something kinky for my ex was when I dressed up as little red riding hood.

I think you just needed someone to show up with a q-tip to make your weekend better. Alas, I wasn't able to make it out there. But if I had, I would have, dunno...goosed you or something :)
Aug. 5th, 2008 12:45 am (UTC)
*LOL* Thanks hon. Apparently I have the sexual appeal of a radish these days.

Wait...some people may be into radishes. What's less hot than a radish?

And I had forgotten about you escapade as "Red"...trust me, that was not my experience this weekend. Where's a wolf when you need one?
Aug. 5th, 2008 11:56 am (UTC)
Fabulous! Thanks for the pics.
Aug. 5th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC)
Can't believe that no one has made this pun yet!

*wolf whistles* ;)

Indeed, you look very cute in those pictures.
Aug. 5th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC)
*LOL* Thanks darlin'!

I think my heart just broke. We were up at Bristol this last weekend. Steve and I thought of calling you but we thought there was no way we could manage to meet up. Does this mean you were there? In the kids realm?? Our friend was one of the Limeybirds and we spent both Saturday and Sunday up there, If we missed you I will just die!!
Aug. 11th, 2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
Hey darlin' -

You didn't miss me. I was working a different event, not the Bristol Faire. It would have been great fun to see you both. I hope you had fun. Hopefully I'll get to see you soon.

I miss you ~ J
