Renaissance Festival Costumes

It's Renn Faire season again!

Share your original creations that you have worn to summer festivals (i.e., Renaissance, Faerie, Medieval, etc.).

Here's a Faerie costume that I created to attend a local Faerie Festival. I named this character Nieves, which means "snow".

I wore this one, an original elf ranger, to my first in 2012, and the most recent one this summer- http://www.cosplay.com/costume/245811/
(in the process of uploading the new pictures. All I have for now are my old ones except for a few new ones so far on my dA)

And 2013 and 2014, I made up a "four elements" costume that got mistaken a lot for mother nature- http://www.cosplay.com/costume/459063/

Also designed this moon fairy but it may never happen, as the renfest I attend made this year its last and I'm not sure if I can attend the next-nearest one when it happens. http://whimsicalsquidco.deviantart.c...sign-518164954

Yay Ren Fest thread!
Love both of ya'lls costumes! Your wings and dress are very pretty ~H~ and ShinobiXikyu I love your elf ranger so much!

The only costume I have for Ren Faire is my Fawn, before then I would just wear a regular corset and skirt, but since making my Fawn costume I have worn it ever since when Ren Faire comes around.
I had always seen Fawns around the Faire and wanted to make one myself and thus did so, its my all time favorite costume and I really love the reaction it spurs from people at the Faire. The best thing was when I first wore it to the Faire a few of the shop keepers dubbed me "fluffy butt" and the name stuck, so all day at the Faire I heard people yelling out hellos and greetings to fluffy butt and even the year after. XD
I plan to make it a tradition to wear my Fawn to Ren Faire every year at least once, and in the two years I have worn her I've made slight additions and adjustments to make her better. I do not have an image of her most recent change but this is the one just prior.

Great fantasy stuff everyone!
Here's my non-fantasy outfit. It's meant to be as I say "tastefully tacky" c.f.
