A medieval faire

I'm fascinated with cosplay in all its forms. I love that people love exploring history or character and in the process, themselves.  Life's a journey afterall, right?

The St Ives Medieval Faire is on in Sydney in September each year.  This year, I finally got there and it was as interesting as I had hoped.  I really wasn't sure what to expect, which was probably a good thing.  I was quite surprised how into it so many people were: from dressing like people from various positions in society to recreating cooking techniques, sword fighting demonstrations and even a weaving circle! It really was quite fascinating!

 

Below are just some of the characters I came across.  For more info, here's the official Facebook page!
