Hi, my name is X and I'm a garbaholic

Our local Ren Fest opened this weekend, huzzah!!! Of course we went, of course we got all dressed up for it, of course we ate turkey drumsticks and drank ale at 10am and sang silly songs and generally had an awesome time. And of course we bought new garb.

Yes, it's only the FIRST DAY and we've already heavily indulged our garbaholic weakness. This does not bode well for our pocketbook for the rest of the season. Spouse has been complaining that he looks like he's slumming when he's with me since I go for the wench look while he goes for the Sir Walter Raleigh look (apart, thank gods, from the ruff that makes you look like a bird who swallowed a plate). So I gave in and got a gorgeous chocolate-brown velvet surcoat over a cream underskirt, with a new shirt to boot. Of course that meant Spouse had to upgrade as well: he picked up a new silk taffeta doublet that looks great and is ten times lighter than the heavier one he's been wearing.

We look fabulous. Except now I need a hat and some accessories. Oh what a shame.

On another note, I apparently qualify for AP History level nerdiness due to the fact that at least one of our cats is named for mythological/defunct or pre-modern era deities. I'm not sure about the other one, but they don't have a category for Greek superhero so I'm going to assume she'd qualify us for this category as well.

I have *always* wanted to get some super swanky Ren-fair gear, but it has just never been in the budget. ;-;
