We went to a Renaissance Festival!
I spent the weekend in DC for Jordan’s birthday, and we spent Saturday at the Maryland Renaissance Festival! Jordan and I had matching dragon outfits, which turned out to be a ‘not-great’ idea.
Potential for heat stroke aside, it was a great time! We were stopped many times by people who wanted pictures with a dragon, and seemed even happier to get a picture with two matching dragons.
I tried my hand at a dunking booth, and actually managed to hit the little bell! I’m usually terrified by the non-stop stream of trash talk coming from the person in the cage, but the dragon costume definitely gave me some courage.
Sirena was super cool, and played a type of aggressively ethereal music that I really enjoyed. I was told the genre was called ‘Seapunk’, and it seemed like a fitting title.
The rock climbing wall was fun, and definitely made more challenging by the heavy dragon pajamas I was wearing.
On the way out, I walked past one of those ‘hit-the-thing-with-the-hammer’ challenges, and could not resist hitting it with the hammer. After 5 hours of walking around in the hot sun in dragon PJ’s, I was pretty stoked that I could even pick up the hammer.
