Gold Canyon, Arizona
We went to a Renaissance Festival that’s down the highway a bit.
It was an amazing spectacle of period costumes, games, food, and more.
We weren’t the only ones who decided to take advantage of today’s two for the price of one special. Felt like bazillions of people…
All of the workers and many of the visitors were in period costume.
This guy on stilts was amazing.
It’s hard to see in this picture, but all of the rides were human powered. There were four guys in the middle of this ride and they pushed the levers to make the ride go round and round.
Who knew? Elephants’ nipples are under their front legs, not the back legs like a beef cow. I sure didn’t know until I got up close and way too personal with “Eliza”…
Just for me, Ye Pop Inn so I could buy Diet Pepsi. 🙂
My favorite part of the fair was where artisans demonstrated how things were made and cooked during the time period.
My favorite booth was where a man demonstrated Brass Rubbings.
Brass rubbings are made by attaching special paper to the selected monumental brass, and then rubbing the surface with a colored wax. Where the brass is flat, the color of the wax is picked up and where a line is engraved, the color of the paper remains. The resultant image is a Brass Rubbing of the monumental brass.
These were at least four feet tall.
Look closely at the breasts of the woman selling Henna Tattooing. They are shoved up by a bustier and literally flowing out of her top.
I’m too flat chested, and there’s no room for A cups. 🙂
