The Greater St. Louis Renaissance Faire. It is the reason why I am sore. It is the reason why I have no money left. It is made entirely of fantastical. I left the Faire with an addition to my collection of fairy kitties, an Elvendrums CD, and a very nice pair of silver horns.

Yes, they sold horns there.

They sell a lot of things there. In fact, I'm pretty sure there was a vendor for just about everything. Except Tarot cards. But who cares about tarot cards when you can find swords, dragon wings, and steampunk goggles?

Also, ELVENDRUMS. They're so much better live, than they are on CD. And on CD, they are awesome. I attended all three of their performances for that day. I even got to stand on stage with the band~. (Though that was only because it had started raining and they had all of the audience sit on the stage. They had cover-thing up to shield their instruments from the rain.) 3 Pints Gone was fantastic with their innuendo-filled songs, just as they usually are. Swords & Roses was back this year, which was just... just YAY!worthy. I didn't have enough time to watch Musical Blades or Adam Crack and his friggen flaming whip, which is mildly disappointing, but there's always next year.

Also, beware of fairies, for they will tie your shoelaces together. Unless you scream. Or tuck your shoelaces into your shoes. Or both.

Seriously, during one of Elvendrums' concerts, I just happened to look down to see an arm between my feet. Yes, I did turn around and see that the arm was still attached to a still-living person, but that didn't stop me from screaming. Luckily this was between songs. orz

Now that that's done, memes.

you are darkslateblue

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

The Ren Faire was awesome.  And not just because of the shopping and the 3 Pints Gone.  (Although they did help.  A lot.)

It was really, really hot out there.  Wearing long pants, dark colors and black leather boots probably wasn't the best idea, but the people in costume had it worse, so I've no right to complain.  (Seriously, all those layers of skirts and doublets and other funky period clothing looked painfully hot.)  Next year I may or may not be allowed to complain, depending on how hot and heavy the costume I'll be wearing is.  (Which, if I stick to my current plan of cosplaying as Sailorpluto, probably won't be very heavy at all.)

In other news, the dancing made me dizzy.  Ah, the... Caraboushka?  (How do you spell the damned thing anyway?)  It's a war between the musicians and the dancers, each verse going faster than the one before unto either the musicians can't play anymore or until the dancers pass out.  If you can survive the full run of the dance without passing out or dropping out, you can survive anything.  Scotland the Brave wasn't nearly as strenuous.  Or spinny.

So, if any of you readers who happen to be near St. Louis this time next year, the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Faire be open for 4 weekend plus Memorial Day.  Come dance with fairies, sing along with Scotsmen, and drink with pirates!  Come in costume.  Come in cosplay.  Come dress as a completely normal person while claiming to be a ninja on vacation!

...I went a bit far with the advertisment-thing, didn't I?  ._.;;
