Renaissance Fair 2023!
The Renaissance Pleasure faire is back in town! and of course, as is tradition, we had to pick the crowdiest day to go!
We had a really big group this year that included the discord group, work friends, and Sketchtoonz friends!
Here are just a few! I ‘ve started taking more vertical shots and getting peoples heads in the top 3rd! so please enjoy these full body shots of Wilder, Max Jackie, and myself.
Lots of fun things to see and do this year, including a crazy red bird girl!
I got a shot at throwing knives and using a bow and arrow. The trick is to keep your elbow straight!
And Max got an enormous turkey leg!
Instead of jousting we took a break to hang out at the hookah lounge, here is Justin taking a big puff, and Melody making a lot of smoke!
Then it was time to meet some birds! Gen got to hang out with a little owl, and Max met a living breathing fighting falcon!
The Owl was too cute to not get a good close up!
A bird human also approached us and flapped her wings!
We briefly met up with Sam and Kari!
And we met Nikki, Maggie, Karli and Crystal too!
Max and Sam proved their strength and smashed a hammer, and hit a bell!
It was absolutely packed this year which is fine, but just once I would like to go when it is slightly less crowded and doesn’t take 45 minutes to park.
Afterwards we all got Tacos and margaritas!
A Pirate Dinner Adventure!
It’s only one week till the Ren Faire but our group could not wait to have a swash buckling good time! So we all headed down to Anaheim to watch the crazy pirate show!
Here’s every one before the show. You could also pay 50$ to get your picture taken, but my DSLR is free.
Once we were inside we got seated around the Boat/Stage and cheered on our Orange Pirate!
Here he is in all his rippling glory!
There was lots of theatrics and sword fights and fun sound effects!
Kari and Hellen got to participate! they pulled on some ropes to raise a flag or something! I cant really remember because the show was all over the place and moved pretty fast!
Then a Pirate won and we saw splashes of water from the mysterious leviathan!
I think we all got some treasure booty too! I love the lighting on the set here. everything was so well put together!
And we all got a photo with the Orange Pirate! Except me because these event are always a bit to crazy to hand off my huge camera to some one.
Kari’s Last Day
It was Kari’s Last day on Rick and Morty, So we all went to the park to celebrate. She’ll be movin’ on to the most Texas themed show of all time. King of the Hill.
We had a big picnic with plenty of Pizza and drinks for all at Brand Park. Even Comet was there!
Nick was there too, The next day was actually Nicks birthday, so we went to Story Tavern To celebrate!
I haven’t tried to take very many low light photos on film before, But I was getting a bit braver with this Lomography 800.
I convinced the group to sit still for a 1 second exposure, and it worked out pretty well! Except for sandy who decided to shake his head! Fortunately, the foosball players don’t move, so I was able to get a clear shot of them.
