My boyfriend brought me to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival for my birthday because he's fancy-sweet like that. Also he let me dress him up! Fitting was a bit of an issue since he lives about four hours away from me, but the only thing that really needed his torso was the doublet. I ended up sewing it all up, then pinning it before we left my house and taking it in by hand on the way to KC.

Ren Fest Costumes by crafty_goldfish, on Flickr
Everything is made from second-hand and stashed fabrics/notions. The only thing I bought was half a yard of broadcloth to edge my bodice with and a roll of orange and black striped ribbon to lace us up.

Dashing. by crafty_goldfish, on Flickr
His doublet is made from a thrifted flannel sheet, stashed red braided trim, and lined with plaid fabric from my mother's stash. The pattern is Simplicity 4059, but I drafted a different peplum. We found the linen-look blend for the shirt at a thrift store in the middle of nowhere for fifty cents. It's from the Pirates of the Caribbean pattern Simplicity put out, 4923. The pants are made from an old curtain, I drafted the pattern from a pair of sweatpants. He made his mocassins and bracers (Isn't he awesome!?).

Renaissance Festival '11 by crafty_goldfish, on Flickr
My bodice is made from turquoise denim and lined with old jeans. The pattern is Simplicity 3809. The shirt came from a thrift store and I deruffled it. I made the skirt with the help of DawnPages, http://www.reddawn.net/costume/skirt.htm from stashed cotton. I'm wearing a 15 yard skirt from my belly dancing outfit underneath it for maximum swoosh factor. My sandals are Native Earth Sedonas.

I'm not a hundred percent happy with the costumes, but we had a great time and I can't wait for next year!
