If you know me at all in real life or have been following me for a few years, you know I indulge in one unabashed weird thing every single year: The Sterling Rennaisance Festival. Not only do I "attend" the festival, but I go all out. All the fuck out. No stops. I've been making full-blown gowns for 4 years now, and a few haphazard costumes for years before that. I usually attend with my best friend Stephanie (of firedfigments fame) and her partner Adam. This year we lost Adam to the trauma of lots of work, but I finally got to drag Sam.
