My friends and I went to the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire this Saturday and it was a blast! I think I spent too much. In fact I'm sure I did. Still, it was a lot of fun. We have a tendency to turn into over-sized kids because we get to play dress up and drag out our "alter egos" for the day.
Mine is Zarqa Habibe (Persian for Blue Eyed Friend). Here's a glimpse :D
|adding the final "hot connection" to give it a base to stand on|
|Make your own costumes (even if they aren't exactly Renaissance)|
|Another Glass Maker - Stuart Abelman|
Makes AMAZING glass beads (and rings)
his necklace is a glass "dragon's tooth" COOL!

|Now, my own work ~ created my|
version of "the Hand of Fatima"
from polymer clay for part of my costume
|Close up - added the Christian fish symbol|
and a cross... not my greatest work, but it
was my first real big piece using polymer so,
not so bad :)
