We're looking foreward to this and we always dress up:
Georgia Renaissance Festival Student Days April 26, 2012
It's probably closer to you than me. It's a blast and 8.50 a ticket is a steal. Although I'm none too thrilled about being there with the Gov't. school children, as they are generally more disrespectful of speakers and aren't always as intrigued by the type of stuff presented, the classes offered look good and it's always a good time. Plus, like I said, we try to dress up, too.
On the weekend of the 28th and 29th, it's buy an adult ticket, get a child one free, so that's another option; though it'll be more crowded on a weekend day.
My mom has been a Trekkie all of her life, as well as someone who went to fantasy fairs and such. She used to get dressed up as klingon women and Starfleet characters; she made her own costumes and mine as well. When I was about 16, a family friend had a Renaissance themed wedding-I still have that dress.
It's easy. Just wear long sirts and peasant blouses, and headscarves for theb lower class and Renaissance/Middle ages dresses for the nobility. My son dressed up as a knight last time (he was able to fight with one of the characters there) and my dd a princess from her dress-up materials; I wore a peasant blouse w/a fancy corset and a long skirt and boots.
This year he's going to wear a Frodo costume (without the furry feet), since LotR has that time period's look to it and my dd has a lovely peasant skirt/shirt set. I'll raid my mom's costume closet!
YOu can buy renaissance costumes most places or just throw something together from thrift stores.
