I have a lot of friends who bitch to me about garb at Renn Faire that isn't historically accurate or fantasy or some shit like that.

Depends on the location/weather. In the midwest they are usually in the summer because winter would be too cold. In warmer places that's not an issue. A lot of them look alike because a few of the bigger faires are owned by the same corporation, and also quite a few of the performers travel a circuit and show up at several faires through the year.

What are your thoughts on stuff like this, where the guy is cosplaying Marty McFly. (Apparently no one at the fair got the joke though) I've also seen Dr. Whos.
I agree that something like Indiana Jones wouldn't make any sense but a time travelling character could be funny if it's not too overdone, like having 18 Dr. Whos running around a ren fair would be annoying but one might be funny.

Going to Bristol and/or Holly in September, so I should get off my ass and finish my outfit. And by finish, I mean start, because all I've done is draft the bodice and get my fabric.

Gossip, I have none, but here's a suggestion. Pack yourself a cooler and tailgate in your car for an hour or so midday. It was miserable last year - blistering hot and full of cranky dehydrated people. We had beer, cheese, crackers, carrots, hummus, and the like - way more refreshing than turkey legs or soup in a bread bowl. Pack extras if you want to make friends.

The Ohio Rennaissance Festival is fucking awesome. Do all ren fairs have a castle with torture devices and displays that scared the fuck out of you when you were a kid? seeing that dude getting his intestines cranked out stuck with me, man.

I bought a ZUN hat last year. In high school we'd take trips there and everyone would come back wearing real fox tails and I was like "yes I'm allowed to be a weeb today". I still have mine, matches my hair color, and I secretly wish I could still wear it.

There is never just one Doctor running around. Cosplayers are just irratating. Partly because there's no creativity (the stock 'wench' character is even better because at least your fabric choices are somewhat unique) but mostly because they all say the same stupid junk, acting like they're the first one to come up with it. Look, I'm not going to act all puzzled with technology when you whip out your plastic screwdriver. Nor am I going to wonder about your relationship with the Queen.

Homestucks though, why? Why would you paint your sweaty bodies grey and rub up on highly ornate costumes that cost hundreds of dollars? Leave that shit for cons, where people at least expect some body paint to be present.

Not that I can really complain about anachronisms since my local event is basically anything goes at this point. They gave the scifi types and steamfags their own corner on the grounds as a containment zone because the stormtroopers and crappy cardboard-box-on-a-bicycle 'airships' were getting out of hand and clogging up the walkways. Last year I saw a group of Naruto cosplayers, various incarnations of the Joker and at least two neon coloured fursuiters. I'd rather have a bunch of people in casual clothes than this.

That's not Uttate and doesn't look anything like her.

I hate: lolita (that isn't on theme somehow at least), cosplay, and steampunk at ren faires. There are always a pile of Dr Whos, Star Trek people, idiots with goggles on top hats, and assorted other goofballs running around. I can barely tolerate the furries if they make some effort to costume themselves in a way that makes sense. I'm also sick of: chain mail bikinis, random "arabian" belly dance concoctions, and women with their tits squeezing out of their corsets. I have no problem seeing a nice pair of tits but not when they look like they are in pain as well as being horribly inaccurate.

Maybe my ren faire is just 2kewl but we have cheese and fruit plates, hummus, chicken pita, and all that jazz these days.

Can you sew at all? You can save money by making some of the pieces yourself - skirts and chemise are very basic patterns.

Otherwise my advise would be to thrift a couple of long skirts to layer, as well as a "peasant blouse" to stand in for a chemise, then spring for a nice bodice from an etsy seller or somewhere like Crimson Gyspy.

Now if you want something fancier or more accurate (the above will go along with what a lot of people wear to faire but is not technically period accurate) comment again and I'll adjust my suggestions accordingly.

Honestly, I'd go to the fair in normalfag clothes - there tends to be at least one really good costume vendor and a dozen or so selling plain skirt/bodices/doublets.

I'm not sure how it is at most faires, but by and far the ones I've been to are more based on fantasy and movies and just slap a Queen Elizabeth actress in there somewhere to say its renaissance. There's usually actual faire-employed actors playing Robin Hood and Jack Sparrow at the same event as the Queen, so fuck if they even know what time period they want to be. As long as your costume falls somewhere between those two, you're good.

I have a question about the SCA. I'm looking at joining, but I noticed on the site/wiki/whatever for the local group, there's character pages for many members. Most of them are just information on their rank or a short blurb on their history, but one guy has a very spiteful sounding warning to not associate with him on it. It doesn't sound like its "in game" either. I've already met this guy outside of the SCA so I'd like to know what the deal is and whether he really is a dick in disguise. I tried to ask someone but they never got back to me on it. Is the SCA really against sharing drama like that or are there some equivalent to /cgl/ for it where I can find out whats up? You'd think they'd share more to keep unwanted people out.

>> No.7768717

>>7768696
I've only just joined myself, and everyone I've met has been super friendly and helpful. There are gonna be dicks in any club/society, but chances most people will really dislike them for it. It could be part of the guy's persona to be a jerk, though that would be pretty weird if it was. Maybe ask the Seneschal if he is for real or not, something about how you are a bit confused/intimidated/put off by what he has written? They are usually pretty happy to clear things up because they want new members to be comfortable.

The Michigan Ren Fair sucks donkey balls.

For the most part, its nothing but shops selling all sorts of retarded shit for breathtakingly high prices: imagine any "costume" item in a dealers hall; thats the quality/price level. The rest are either selling useless shit, or "battle ready" wall hanger swords milled out of solid steel stock on a milling machine. And that's it, it's awful. The biggest unique "attraction" is a single ventriloquist who does the "Ded Bob show," which might be amusing except this guy literally does THE EXACT SAME ACT LINE FOR FUCKING LINE EVERY YEAR. Going on god knows how many fucking decades.

The only things I've bought there were musical instruments; a neat little clay ocarina and a renissance style flute. Even the "jousting" event isn't amusing enough to sit around in the heat for.

Having worked the Florida Renaissance Festival myself this year and I did go most of the weekends last year, let me tell you what is good and bad about it:

Having to work the fair meant I had be in character 100% of the time the fair opened and closed. You have to deal with parents who start drinking at about 12 or 1pm and have to deal with drunk assholes late in the day before the fair closes. The kids themselves aren't too bad unless they are in their teens, then they think they can be cool and break into areas they are not allowed or make fun of the workers there.

Having to work it: The people themselves are a mixed bag of helpful, nice people having a good time or old timers/crews that have drama with other crews. It is just fine for the most part, but some days are better than others.

Shopping wise, it is just better to buy online unless you TOTALLY need to buy something there you can't get anywhere else. It kinda blows. No one really has cards and if they do, they don't have websites, just a number to call. Many places have great items, just at prices that no one but drunk people will pay for. Do note, don't buy clothing there unless you are ready to drop anywhere between 30 or 45 for just a basic shirt to anywhere around 600$ for the coats there. Also the Wooden mug place there is a total rip, just get that shit on Etsy for less.

As for cosplayers, I saw homestuck kids a few times there this year, a few Links, a few back to the future ones, and some randoms. They were not too bad, but to me, the homestuck just made me roll my eyes

The SCA is probably the closest thing. Its world wide, breaks down into kingdoms, baronies, shires, etc. Every group has a leader than in turn answers to the next tier up. And I can confirm there is very similar gossip, certain groups being known for drama or shittyness, elitists, the ren-equivalent of itas, fetishists (its just bondage instead of age play), etc. The drama just varies more as there's a more equal amount of men and women, as well as a much wider range of ages. I was with a fringe group for a while that had so many break ups, splits, drama, and stupidity that it drove me out. Literally within the space of three years there was usurping, the group split in half, someone tried to fuck someone else's wife, someone stole an entire pirate ship on a trailer (a full size ship made as the camp fort), numerous passes were made at the two underage girls and immediately passed off as "just kidding", and one of the main founding members turned out to not exist at all.

Do you have a certain country and timeframe in mind? There are differences between an Elizabethan court gown and Saxon, and things change a bit depending on what decade you're aiming for.

As general advice, I've had good experiences or heard good things about Margo Anderson, Reconstructing History, and Tudor Tailor. I'd say TT is the most accurate for Tudor/Elizabethan you can find, and RH has the widest range of periods/countries.

If you don't need it to be absolutely accurate, I would say that some of the Simpilicy costume patterns are decent. Also if you are planning to join a faire cast they will probably have some guidelines you have to stick with. There used to be a good review site of historical patterns - let me see if I can dig it up for you.

Here is the site http://www.gbacg.org/great-pattern-review/index.php

And there should be a "for example" somewhere in my first sentence. Obviously there are more courts than just those two examples.

Ahhhh, this is perfect thank you <3

I am going for Tudor/Elizabethan court and I've already found a few good recommendations just browsing through the site :D

I too share this feel. I'm kind of a costume history geek and I've always wanted to go to a renfaire in full attire, but it just seems way less practical than going to an anime con; they're usually held in the summer, it's too damn hot to be wearing layer upon layers of clothes, and I don't want to get mistaken for official cast members.

My google-fu is failing me.

Thirding the history geek feels. I used to handle the fashion collection of a small museum. I managed to get everyone who worked there into some decently accurate Victorian duds. Whenever I went to some kind of steampunk or dress up event I'd wear something way more cutesy or comfortable, because fuck it I'm not going to wear my silk taffeta bustle gown to a crowded hot event and have 500 strangers touch it and get their con crud and Steam Powered Giraffe glitter all over it.

Now I've never attempted to make an elaborate Tudor gown (though it would be nice) for pretty much the same reason plus ren fairs have that lovely atmospheric mud. I still go, but in airy washable cotton hankerchief skirts and fairy duds.

If in addition to being historical costuming enthusiasts you are interested in making pre-1600's clothing, wearing it to events and talking to folks with similar interests I would suggest looking into your local sca group.

While not everyone is perfect in their garb or has that as their highest focus there are those who really get into that aspect.

I've tried the SCA thing, it really wasn't for me. The local one is primarily concerned with fighting and beer and there's very little emphasis on costuming or... anything that isn't fighting or beer (or sex) really.

Quite frankly, I'd give the knight more shit about his armour than I would Marty.

That thing just screams "cheap larp knockoff". He'd be better off with jus the chain.

From top down

>Unprotected elbows
>Inadequately protected forearms
>Unprotected hands (leather gloves do jack shit)
>Inadequately protected thighs
>Unprotected knees

>No padding beneath the chainmail, dude is asking for punctured skin
>Chainmail beneath plate, as opposed to wearing voiders
>Pressed sheet metal riveted onto leather, as opposed to actual forged armor

I guarantee that dudebro does not walk into any fights dressed like that. He also did not make that armor himself, as I've seen it in stock with online "armor" dealers.

By the looks of him, I'd say he's just cosplaying a medieval Judge Dredd. In which case, he does it right.

There's a pdf out there called "the Medieval Tailor's Assistant", it deals with the more common garbs from 1200 to 1500, for both men and women, and includes headwear.

Any MO/KCfags gonna venture the the KC ren. fest tomorrow?

I wanna beat on some dudes with my foam claymore.

Also what is a good "boxer short" style garment to wear under my kilt?

I don't want to become a sex offender so I don't go full-scot. I am thinking of cutting down some drawstring pants and using that as an underwear.

Might upload pic(s) of my costume in a bit.

That's why they started wearing kilt pins after Queen Victoria got flashed at a parade on a windy day. (And when is it not windy in KS.)
