Renisssance Fair Costume Inspiration

I personally love Renaissance, medieval fairs and fairy balls. They are so much fun and we are fortunate enough to have over 3 in my area and a few more in the neighboring states. You can learn some neat facts about that time (a great time to plan a theme unit if you home-school and use the fair as a fun field trip to round out the unit) and you can also let your imagination have a free day to run along side your child's and enjoy all the revelry and fantasy often alive and well at these festivals. This is a place that you can wear a costume and no one will think it one bit odd but actually condone your ability to join in on the fun.
One of my tutus and ragatus are perfect as costumes or part of a costume for such festivals.  Here are some ideas and some inspirations. No not all these pictures are mine but yes I can do that.

Of course your little one needs to be in on the fun be it a fairy or a pirate


A woodland fairy princess at any age.

 Now I am working on a new fairy handmade wing line and will be released later this spring if all goes well and the practice rounds continue to go well.

Now no prince or princess should be seen with out their crown. Yes of course I have you covered there no matter what age you are.
These are my lace crowns but I have floral ones coming out later this spring.


We have fantasy colored lace crowns

Just remember we are all dreamers on the inside and that is an ageless age so be free to go and have a little fun and forget your physical age for just a little while. Thank you for reading.
