It seems like a good idea to write a blog post even though I'm supposed to be cleaning.

I'm trying to clean my room. Which hasn't been done in... Forever. It looks like it exploded. And the walls are an unfortunate shade of orange. I want them white (so I can stick black wall stickers, hopefully Halloween ones or spooky trees). And I have a lot of rearranging to do... Plus I think some spiders moved in. I need to vacuum their webs.

But I just remembered something...

OH MY GOTH THE RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL IS SOON!!!!!

http://www.michrenfest.com/index.html

If you don't know what it is... Its a festival. Where people dress in renaissance clothing. And do renaissance-y... stuff. Its so fun! And, now that I can sew (and own a corset) I can make an outfit! I'll determine what kind another time. (Desired: Renaissance princess dress. And a crown.)



Kind of like this... But with better colors and actual (not halloween costume) fabric.



I'm thinking emerald with black trim. And it probably won't be historically accurate. Ooh, I need to stop spending now so I can afford a hat... They have the BEST hats ever! But everything is so expensive... You can guarantee I will be taking pictures that day. (Note to self: give dress large pockets. I don't think my purse would look good with a gown. (Plus I'd probably lose it...))

The only flaw (besides price) of the Ren Fest? Port-a-potties. Doesn't really mix with a long gown. Oh well.



Also, I mentioned changing the name. I was thinking "Toxic Tea Party". Not sure how (or why) I thought of it, but that would be like the best name for a band. Maybe a blog. What do you think?

I like the name Toxic Tea Party. It's short and it has a good ring to it. I can't wait to see your outfit!
