My reviews are based on my personal experience with a product or event. I am not a professional product tester nor do I get paid for any of my blog posts.

The items that I post reviews on, have either been purchased on the internet or through a local vendor. Additionally I will review items that I got on sale, as a gift or as a sample from either the manufacurer or some other source.

Note: always read the manufacturers directions on how to properly use a product and craft carefully. Additionally, I am an Amazon Associate and may earn a few cents (literally) from your clicking on my Amazon links. Since they raised the minimum payout from earnings to $10 I haven't seen a credit for a while but eventually I will get one.

Every penny counts when trying to set a budget to get supplies to use for my reviews, tutorials and hauls. However, you do not have to use my links. You can use your favorite search engine to find the best price for your budget.

Time Travelers Weekend Renaissance Fair

"The Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire" our southern renaissance fair holds their annual "Time Traveler" weekend event each year. The southern renaissance faire is held at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale, California. 

It is a great opportunity for guests or cosplayers to wear their favorite time traveler costumes.  If you are a fan of steampunk, then this weekend at the Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire is for you.  There are a lot of steampunk cosplayers who show up with an amazing selection of costumes and accessories.

It is also a fun opportunity to see a variety of costumes from different eras,

along with a multitude of creative fandom attire

that included some amazing Steampunk costumes, Dr. Who costumes and so much more.
I love the way guests accessorized their costumes.

There many different styles of steampunk costumes which included costumes for women, men and children.  Unfortunately, the kids were a little harder to photograph since I have to get a photo release for minors to post on my blog.  So I did not include any pictures of them this time.

Anyway, the various Steampunk cosplayers had costumes which featured some fun and unique accessories
that varied from person to person.

I love the wooden wings on this costume.  The creator used wood, aluminum and copper (possibly brass) to make these.

Of course there was also an excellent selection of Doctor Who Costumes and cosplayers.  These were only a few of the Doctor Fandom Characters that I encountered that day.

You can also find some fun mash ups between pirates and wenches with a little bit of steampunk thrown it.

Since it was the Renaissance Faire, I found some unique and traditional fairy outfits around the shire.

Each weekend at the Renaissance Faire has a different theme, so it is a great opportunity to pull out your costumes and cosplay outfits to show them off and interact in character at "The Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire" in Irwindale, California.  

 You can check the renaissance faire website to see what other upcoming events are during the upcoming season (spring 2022).

Note: This post is not paid or sponsored by anyone. I work at the faire and enjoy taking photos and sharing my personal experience with those who are interested.
