I had a rather strange adventure. I am one of those people that dresses up the renessanse festival and last weekend I went.
However I had lost my primary outfit and so I ransacked my house to try and find a different costume. I did find one; a pirate costume (arr!)
My friend had convinced me to go beacause I needed to get a morter and pedestal to crush herbs I use for cooking.
So I dressed as a pirate and my friend as a bar wench, went to the fair. On the the way there my friend and I jpked that it'll be pirate week. Much to our surprise, it was. We had a real hard laugh at that.
Almost immediately upon entering we fnd the apothocary, who sells mortars and pedastals. So I got my items (later before we left), meaning that the reason I came was fullfilled. Then we hit up random events that were going on.
However there was one event in praticular that I wanted to see, the pirate costume contest.
We showed up really earily to try and get good seats, so we're just chatting and the stage manager says (Mostly to herself) that there weren't any pirates around. I stood up yelled "Arrr!" and she pulled me on stage, entering me in the costume contest. Five other people showed, and they too were entered in the contest. I called my self Captain Black Heart (Cuz I wear all black) and tried my best to calm my nerves, I doubt anybody could tell how nervous I was.
Well I won Fifth place on a costume that I put together the night/ morning before the fair.
I kindda geeked out over that for a while. Still am a little geeked.
But as we wandered about looking for more stuff to see, we spotted some elves across the way. I lamented over not having pointed ears then, but brought it up later on, cuz I always complain about not having pointed ears (Elves are rediculously sexy). It was then that we sutumbled upon on the elf ear vendor.
I got some decently long and slightly up twisted ears and a grin the size of Kazakhstan.
So then I was an elven pirate.
Who was still geeking out over winning fifth place in costume thrown together at the last minute.
Who only came to get a mortar and pedestal.
