Silly things one might find at a Renaissance Faire

30 Aug

Below is a list of a few of the discordant/historically inaccurate things my friends and I encountered on our trip to the Renaissance Faire. In alphabetical order.

Renaissance belly dancers
Renaissance bloomin’ onions
Renaissance dreadlocks
Renaissance EMS squad
Renaissance fajitas
Renaissance feather hair extensions
Renaissance furries
Renaissance Gatorade
Renaissance henna tattoos
Renaissance margaritas
Renaissance ninjas
Renaissance paddle boats
Renaissance Picatinny moccasins
Renaissance Sam Adams
Renaissance steampunk weirdos
Renaissance teriyaki beef

Renaissance PortaJohns nearly made the list, until we decided they might have been the most historically accurate thing we saw all day. While our nerdy selves scoffed at the high concentration of Renaissance leather bikinis, the opportunity to watch Renaissance hotties participate in the ceremonial banging of the plastic swords while sipping Renaissance mead and reciting Renaissance Shakespearian insults*  made it all worthwhile.

*Thou art a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-liver’d, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way!
