Opening weekend finally came and was great. Anticipating wardrobe complications, we set out to see the storyline and bypass shopping since my skirts would be difficult to navigate through the shops. I did get to see a few vendors, but did not get to see some of the storyline. The chess match and ultimate joust were packed, and instead of sitting in the grass many audience members decided to stand in front of where we had been sitting for quite some time. Even the ones who turned around and looked at us, turned right back around with a look of “well I’m not sitting, so they should stand”. Oh, well. We’ll hit those shows the next time through, and we’ll leave enough time to sit closer. Three of us went this weekend, and only one of three (moi) went in garb. However, I got a “I’ll wear whatever you want to make” from my intended once the day was in full swing, so I’ll get to work and see what I can get together in two weeks. He should have never said it.
Thanks for reading!
