Who are we? We are two wacky artists from either side of the country who have discovered that we are kindred spirits- in fact, elf sisters. We both like to be outdoors and exploring, so we've created the blog to share our adventures!

Adventuring with the Plurfish at the Renfaire

Yesterday the Plurkfish and I went on another adventure- to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked because I felt silly carrying around a fish without my best friend there (she couldn't get off work that day), and my fiancé flat out refused to be in a picture with a fish.

Still, I did get pictures! Josh snapped one of me and Plurkfish outside my favorite shop at the faire- the bead shop. ;)

This is a terrible picture of me, so I resized it small. But hey, that's my elf costume I just finished on Saturday- my very first sewn things (a tunic and cloak). I'm really proud of how well they came out! This is just the first incarnation of the costume, though- I'd like to add bits of leather and fur to it and make a longbow and quiver (saw some patrons at the faire with archery gear and I was jealous!), and eventually get/make some leather armor.

Anyway, onto more pictures! I was so embarrassed to ask "Hey, could I get a picture of you holding my fish?" but luckily Don Juan and Miguel are great guys and went along with it. I tried to explain that the fish is traveling the world, but I was so shy that I'm not sure how clear I was. Heh.

Here's Don Juan with the fish:

I love that Miguel is in the background. LOL!

And speaking of, here's Miguel:

I'm really really hoping I remembered to thank them. I was so embarrassed about asking this that I'm afraid I came off as rude. So consider this a heartfelt thank you in case I did forget- they made this shy elf-girl's day. :D

Those were the only pictures I got of the fish that day, but here are a few more from the faire. The first show we saw that day was the Duo of Woo; I'd seen this show years ago, but I don't think they were at our faire for a few years. We sat too far back to get good pictures, but I did get two:

I found videos on Youtube of what they were doing in those pictures: the first you can watch here and the second was part of their Olympics.

After this show we saw Don Juan and Miguel- I got a lot more pictures of them since we had better seats.
Here's Don Juan having a whip contest with Esmeralda:

(I find it so cool that his daughter is part of their act.)

Here's Don Juan using Miguel as target practice:

Here's Miguel as the queen of Spain:

And a French guy:

And a pirate:

Here's Don Juan and Esmeralda (as a pirate) sword fighting:

I took more pictures, but that's probably enough to share. I love this act!

The last show we saw of the day was the human chess match. I only got two pictures of this, though, and it was before it started. Here's the queen:

And here's a less zoomed in picture of her court presiding over the match:

Me and the Plurkfish had a lot of fun yesterday, to say the least!
