Pirates Weekend : Sterling Renaissance Festival

I looked at Derek (on Wednesday) and said, "Do you want to go to the Renaissance Festival this weekend?". I think his eye balls almost popped out of the sockets out of shock. Yes, I was asking to go to the Sterling, NY Renaissance Festival, because it was pirate weekend. I didn't have anything to wear, which I have been scolded by friends about, as a lot of goths my age have a poet shirt or two in their closets....I do not. Haha! So, my dress and hat was ordered from www.dresslikeapirate.com and the rest were items we had or borrowed from a friend. Derek on the other hand, was prepared and looked wonderful!

Admittedly, I usually don't care too much for Renn Fair's. but seeing as it's been 13 years since I've been to one and Derek loving them so much, it was time to treat him to a day of fun......

And it was a lot of fun! We brought along these two misfits, Bryan (left) and Kyla (right). It was Kyle's first Renn Fair, so he was visiting all the vendors and made a lot of awesome purchases. We all were very merry, because the Mead was plentiful, the entertainment was great and the weather was beautiful.

Did I mention the Mead? Yeah, the Mead was really good. 

Other highlights of the day:

Bryan met someone taller than him and I think he wanted to steal this guys sword.

Derek did axe throwing. (We also did archery and forgot to give the guys the camera)

Watched the Queen's procession

"God save the Queen!"

More Mead.....

Taking a break and watched people getting rides on the "War Horse".

Listened to some very raunchy and hilarious poetry.

Got to hang out with Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I (She was okay with us, even though we were pirates)

Many laughs and fun were had. Hahaha!

Glad that we went this year and glad everyone enjoyed themselves. Hurrah! Hurrah!

Thank you for reading!

  1. Awww this looks like so much fun! Our Medieval Fayres are nothing like the Ren Fayre you have in the US! Yay for mead as well!

    1. I would imagine they would be a lot more grand and wonderful in the UK!!! xoxo

  2. You don't own a poet's shirt?! Shame! XD

  3. I've actually never been to a Renaissance fair *insert sad face* but I've always wanted to go to one to see what all the fuss is about. My friend goes to one every year and says it's a blast.

    BTW I love your blog. New follower via Bloglovin. :)

    1. I definitely would go at least once! =D Welcome and thank you for your readership!

  4. Looks like you had a great time! And a pirate weekend seems like the best idea ever. Every weekend should be pirate weekend

  5. That is such a cool event you went to. You guys looked awesome! Arrrr!
    Here in Montreal, in the Old Port, there is a Pirate ship with obstacle courses for the kiddies to play on. I plan on taking my son there real soon, when I am able to take time off of work. I have not been to a Ren faire in ages and seeing these photos makes me want to go again!

    1. You definitely should! Sounds like great fun for the kiddies, why can't they have one for the adults too...especially after some Mead or Grog? ;) Hahahaha!!!

  6. You look great! I would love to go to a Ren Faire one day, the reenactors in Australia are too serious and obsessed with reality for me!

  7. OOOOOOO, so jealous looks like a fun day out. I love mead, where I live I am quite fortunate it produced locally and easy to procure from specialist shops.I love the costumes fun

  8. Looks like you all had a great time! I've never been to a renn faire before but how can you resist pirates! :D
