So my husband and I took my step son, his best friend, and our two nephews to the Renaissance Festival for his birthday. It was the opening weekend, and I was really super excited to go because I'd never been before and I love dressing up. The entire trip was a surprise to all the boys, and I secretly made some costumes for them to wear while walking around the festival (I made one for me, too  Grin ). The youngest isn't big on costumes so he opted out, but the others were thrilled. The "king and queen" commented on them as we were walking in, saying they were musketeers. So I decided the youngest one could be D'aragnan.

I made their shirts out of pillow cases and stenciled a fleur de lis on the back. The "breast plates" are just cardboard spray painted silver with a matching stencil on the front. They ended up too small because I didn't know how big to make them, but they didn't seem to mind. I also folded up foam crafting sheets to make sheaths for their wooden swords (which we also hid in the trunk). Everything was tied together with twine.


Here they are stopping for a very manly lunch.

And finally some sword fighting (their favorite part).

And now me in my costume, along with a sling I bought just for the trip to carry our littlest knight in.

What a fun way to add to the trip.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.
