How was your experience?
I've always love the Ren Faire and go nearly every year. We've spent hundreds on outfits and dress up to go. It's always been a good time. But other people have ruined it now and it's totally different. You'll see people dressed up as animals, the Lolita girls (by the way, a grown woman does NOT have any business in these outfits), Steampunk, women dressed as skimpy as they can legally get away with (and some not even that), zombies, etc. Don't get me wrong - I think some of these outfits are pretty cool - but this is then RENAISSANCE Faire, not the Steampunk fair or Furry fair or Hooker of the Month Club fair. Also, the acts don't really change much and they now have to have people in white polos with flags to help you because you have no idea who works there anymore otherwise. Oh well, I guess things change but this is one thing that should have stayed "pure". And I know I'm not just being an old fogey because my 14 year old daughter (who loves Steampunk) said the same thing.
