Already missing your local Ren Faire? Can’t wait for another 6-8 months for it to open again? You are not alone, Renaissance Fairs have gained popularity in the last few years along with cosplay, they are still solid venues we can count on to spend money at in amazing costumes!
An intake in the last few years of more comic and movie related costuming at medieval and Ren celebrations has bolstered it’s ‘it’ status and should continue to be an incredible photoshoot location in your area, complete with castles, decorations, and period type scenarios that will forever be immortalized in pictures, selfies and portraits.
The pics below are from an immense and constantly packed renaissance faire, Bristol Renaissance Faire in Bristol, Wisconsin. Costumes that prevailed were fairy, elf and beautifully dressed attendees, Game of Thrones and comic book characters this year.
If you’re in the Chicagoland area get up there to see their gorgeous acreage, quaint storefronts, and incredible costumed folk roaming the grounds and eating turkey legs and boiled mushrooms!
