Tennessee Ren Faire Final Weekend Pictures

Well another season of the Tennessee Renaissance Festival has come to a close. It was a very wet year, but I still had a great time regardless. It is always a great time, and a chance to hang out with some people that I only really get to see one time a year. I didn’t take as many pictures this year as normal, as I didn’t want to have the camera out with the chance of rain, but I still had it out for most of the last Saturday of the faire.

Here are a couple of samples.

The rest of the pictures can be seen at

TNRF 2009

Ren faire this year has been quite different, as it has rained almost every day. This last Sunday was the first time that I was able to take the camera out with me to get some pictures. The gallery can be seen at http://www.dwrd.net/photography/galleries/tnrf-2009/.

There is one more weekend of faire left, and then I am going up to Indiana to be a handler/photographer for Hofmann when his base is trooping a roller derby match, and then the state Harley rally, and back to GA for the final weekend of GARF.

After the weekend of the 5th, I think I will be able to have a couple of weekends to just spend around the house continuing the process of unpacking the rest of the boxes are haunting my garage.

Weekend wrap-up

Well this was a great weekend. On Saturday, and I headed to the TN Renaissance Festival. We hung out with Ivan and Summer and got to see Joe and who are part of the cast. We went to most all of the shows etc. It was a good time. Ivan had a new Robin of Locksley costume. We were talking and decided that I could be Friar Tuck. I figured that I could make it with some stuff that I had at home.

After we left the faire, we went to ‘s reception for her teaching graduation. Congrats again Erin. I borrowed a couple of robe patterns from and headed home to try to make a Friar robe for the following day. When I was looking through what fabric I had, I found a robe that I had started to make a while back at a sewing day that I had forgotten about. It had one deep emperor sleeve on it and that was about it. I pulled that sleeve off, which conveniently became the hood for my robe, made some sleeves, and after about 2 hours of work, here is what I came up with. Friar Tuck version 1.0.
