Faire season is OVER......... [Oct. 15th, 2002|09:49 am]
Verminius Rex
The last day of Renfest went well. geekmom and child along with radcliffe and a new friend, Kij, came along for the day. Geekmom had been feeling poorly Sunday, but was well enough to make it out Monday, which was good. I completed my parade duties, took a few final photos (yes, I took pics of some royalty too, not just peasants with cleavage), got drawn into the Queens Tea Party, a paid event usually but Radcliffe had been invited so that she would be drawn up on stage as part of the wooing contest, and we accompanied her as her retainers. I was one of two guys drawn up to be wooed by Mother Nature and the Queen (glad I got Mother Nature, the Queen was not much in the way of wooing material). I introduced myself as Radcliffe's driver, which busted her up. I was able to say goodbye to most of the friends that I made at faire, and look forward to seeing them next season, although I don't know if I will be available to work or not.

I did get an e-mail from one of the people I photographed at faire. She was wary because she had so many sniper shots of her taken during the season.


I would just like to send a slight apology about how I had treated you after you had taken my photos (oh yeah, this is Bianca from the Coin Press at the KC RenFest). You do take very tasteful photographs, and are not in anyway crude, and I respect that. And I read your photo etiquette and would like to say (in a not so formal manner) YOUR RULES ROCK! I got sniper photographed today (the last Sunday of the fair) and wanted to take the guy's camera and bust it! Of course he did ask me if it was okay, and right before I said no, he snapped it and left. Again stated, you are a very respectful photographer. So you now have better permission to use my photos if you so wish to do so.



Now it its time to get the first ebay auction started, then later I will start going through my 150+ photos from this weekend for the final pictures from faire. Oh, and I met the members of Minstrosity, who are musicians that play at faire and are also on alt.faires. rennaissance, and they knew who I was! My online identity has made a minor name for himself.

Oh that is so sweet! What a great letter! Yes, you are definitely making a good name for yourself! :)

I had such a good time, too! You looked great up on stage, I will get the pics for you here soonish.

Wendy from Minstrosity (the red-head) is a friend of ours from undergraduate years at Northwestern.
