I always look forward to the Pirate weekend at the Texas Renaissance Festival. The festival opens at 9am. I left my place at 10am and it usually takes me about an hour to get there.
On this day, it took me 3 1/2 hours in bumper to bumper slow moving traffic. It was a beautiful day and Pirate weekend is really popular so I guess everybody wanted to go this day.
After 3 1/2 hours in traffic, I was burned out by the time I got there so I didn’t stay too long. The last thing I wanted was to get into traffic on the way home too. I still enjoyed my time there.
These two were having a good time.
I love taking group shots of people enjoying themselves.
This girl was busting out of her top, literally.
Here’s a good shot of a family. The dad had his whole head painted.
This couple looked great.
Here’s my favorite family shot. The little girl is holding up her hook hand. This gives me pleasure to provide a good memory for people. They’ll enjoy this picture for years to come.
These two girls were cute in their pirate gear.
This one girl is wearing fairy wings. They also have a fairy weekend too.
Notice how thin this ladies waist is with her corset on. Wow.
These two looked great also.
This was another nice group shot they’ll cherish.
I liked this girl’s face painting.
There were also barbarians there.
And Romans too.
Plenty of places to sit and eat. I love the food there.
I especially love the “Steak on a Stick”.
Here was a girl made up like a statue. She looked awesome.
This guy with the horse body is always there posing for pictures.
This lady was lying on the ground and when she moved and growled a little kid started screaming and crying. It was funny.
If I go next year, I’m leaving much earlier to avoid the traffic. But I’ll definitely be back.
