Escondido Renaissance Faire
Its 8:00am on a Saturday morning. I get on my gmail and see an old message from the Pacific Photo society. Today’s the day to shoot at the Escondido Renaissance Faire. Now not only have I never been to a renaissance faire. But I hadn’t even heard of one till about two weeks ago. I was watching a movie called “Role Models”. Of course I know the performers at the faire probably wouldn’t appreciate the reference.
When we first arrived I thought, “How in the hell did all these people from England get here?!” I was quickly informed they weren’t really from England. These people were good enough to fool me. That is until my friend informed me I was an idiot.
After immediately walking in through the front gate I was extremely impressed. See, i’ve always been a huge fan of the Dragon Lance series by Margaret weis and Tracy Hickman. Walking through the faire was like living one of their novels.
Now as great as these people were I didn’t have a clue what they were saying. It wasn’t until I looked at the program we received that I got a translation:
- Hello: Good morrow or well met!
- How are you: How farest thee?
- Thank you: Gramercy
- Where are you from: Where hail ye from?
Now I see some of the sexiest elves, witches and hand maidens on the west coast. However To my surprise I turned a corner and saw hot ladies on horses!
You know another thing that i’m fond of? Spending money on cool shit. If you’re like me this is a place you should definitely visit!
