Today for my 20th birthday, my family went to a renaissance faire. It was a little on the cheesy side but I had a lot of fun. I was dressed as a Scottish shield maiden just like my ancestors before me. I was wearing a real kilt, my mom braided my hair into a frohawk, amd I was wearing war paint called woad. I participated in a public flogging and I had a falcon land on my forearm. I wasn't wearing any sort of protection but I felt fine. Just felt like a small pinch. And the falcon was only there for a second. I would love to go a huge amd authentic renaissance faire. I wanted to look at artisan crafts because I am willing to spend money on that but the crafts weren't very good.
