These are the costumes I made (or altered) for this year's Ren Faire in Bristol. I altered my friend in the whites costume, made my other friend's from scratch, and mine was made from an old Guinevere costume and the under shirt is from scratch.

The altered costume, before and after. It was shortened and has added boning and rhinestones at the collar with a matching bracelet made from the scraps of fabric.


My friend's Pumpkin themed Ren Faire Costume. I made the patterns for each part by hand (my first over bust corset for someone other than myself), I didn't put in nearly enough boning though for the type of fabric I used, but oh well. The skirt's waist band is elastic with a hidden zipper underneath the bustle.


This is my costume (sorry it's not a good picture) also from hand made patterns. I made the shoes and purse also. For my first time making shoes they turned out okay, but I definitely preferred being barefoot once it started raining. It has an unnecessary tie up in the back that I'm going to stitch shut.


And just to show off how awesome my boyfriend is, here is a picture of his costume that he put together with altered thrift store clothes Smiley


Thanks for looking Smiley

I love those flowing sleeves, and especially like the colors of the "pumpkin" outfit.  Smiley
