I love the idea of this community

I love wearing my costumes to different places, although I have admittedly gotten more like a grumpy grown up lately and felt self conscious wearing my outfits places. Perhaps this community will help snap me out of it.

I do still get a thrill out of stopping at the gas station to pump gas in costume on my way to the renfaire. I prefer when people smile and ask me about clothes instead of peering at me and trying to act really hard like they don't notice me. That way I can put them at ease by smiling and allowing them to look at me...besides isn't it nice to be admired after we've worked so hard on our nice things? And I love admiring other people's handiwork! LOL

Anyway here are some pictures my husband took of me in a park near our house, just playing with my hats and fans and the cloak I made. Enjoy!

Good stuff.

The most positive comments I've ever gotten while wearing my Viking-period living history kit out was at a college town bar frequented by what looked to the world like Stereotypical College Frat Boys. I had people coming up and asking me questions and acting genuinely interested in what we were doing in these strange looking clothes.

Worst reaction is Starbucks once, when the customers treated me like I had leprosy.

That's kinda cool that people rose over the stereotypes and were just friendly and interested in each other. That's too bad about the Starbucks people though...my local Starbucks seems pretty laid back for most parts. :)

Wonderful! (Oooh haaaaat <3)

Yes! Isn't it annoying when people are like "I'mnotlookingnotlookingnotlooking...!" You just wanna go over to them and grab their face and be like "LOOK!" ^_^

I think maybe they're afraid of being rude or maybe they are just shy. So I smile at them so they know it's okay. :)

Ahaha perhaps! Indeed... no need to be afraid of the crazies in costume! :D Whenever that happens, I just remind myself with a giggle the looks THEY would have gotten wearing what they are if they went into the era of whatever I was wearing! ^_^
